About

Holes 9
Type Public/Municipal
Style Traditional/Executive
Par 30
Length 1730 yards
Slope 80
Rating 28.5

The Encanto Nine Golf Course lies to the west of Encanto Park, and offers an executive-length golf course perfect for anyone who seeks a fast-and-loose round, with tee times passed out first-come-first-served. About an hour and a half is usually all it takes to play through the golf course.

The Encanto Nine Golf Course sits in the heart of Phoenix, and claims the honor of being the third-oldest golf course in Arizona and features a casual vibe, perhaps due in part to the foliage. Abundant natural palms line the golf course, and between them golfers can catch beautiful glimpses of downtown Phoenix. The course was designed by William P. Bell.

Nice morning.

The course was in good shape. We played at 5:45 am and the course was still very wet from watering. The water features were all very low. Lots of birds, turtles, and frogs. Greens played slow in the morning, faster as they dried up. Clubhouse guy was a jerk. Bag attendants were fantastic. Narrow fairways, very hilly in the rough. Would play there again, for sure.

Nice little track for $9. Have 3 par 4's but if you're working on your game or a player you can hit 9/8i off the tee. Didn't bring anything higher than a 7. Would not play here on Thursdays at 9 am, a woman's league plays at 8 am every Thursday

Old School Charm

Fun course to warm up if you haven't played recently. City course, well maintained. Walking is the only way to go. Your GPS might try to take you to the 18 hole course.
