Rating 74.3

Grand Canyon University Golf Course (formerly known as Maryvale Municipal Golf Course) offers an 18-hole track designed by Ted Robinson, Sr. and built in 1961. The par-71 golf course measures 7,269 yards from the championship tees and is open year-round.

The Bermuda grass Grand Canyon University Golf Course gets plenty of shade during the summer, thanks to several onsite trees, and features flat and wide fairways.

The fourth hole, for one example, is a 160-yard par-3 where you'll have to shoot over the water - and past the brick wall that separates the green from the water.

Mighty Slow Play!!

When you have a cart and clubs, You don’t expect it to feel like a spectator sport; you need a Marshall to move things along! A 5+ hour round is not welcomed by anyone.

Great Golf Day

Today was great weather which slowed pace of play a little due to the course being full. Not bad though. The course is well laid out with lots of bunkers placed in just the wrong places for me. The greens were running fast which in normal for Grand Canyon.

2 carts per group

The 2 carts per group max should be disclosed upfront like so many other courses on GolfNow. Forced share was not presented until the tee box after I had pre paid and checked in an hour early. I was willing to abort and work something out in the pro shop when the starter decided to let our group split to honor the must share rule cloaked in the 2 cart rule.
Just be upfront anywhere prior to tee box and let us make our own call. Great round !!
