Great Condition

Most par 3 courses are in poor shape. This course was in great shape and the greens were excellent. Putts moved a lot if you were not in front of the pin. Shot 1 over.

Well-maintained course

I was really impressed with the condition of the turf. I walked the course and all aspects are in superb condition. Bigger and more expensive courses should pay attention to what's being done at this little course. I will be back.

Pleasantly surprised

Played the course off a recommendation. Turned out to be perfect for my wife who just started but still good enough to let me use driver on some holes and still work on my irons. Looking for a quick round in central Phoenix, come here! Think it was $12 to walk 18.

Its an old city course but its in the best shape ever, the greens are soft and receptive. Overall it's a real good bang for the buck. Ill be back. I sometimes practice putting chipping and use the driving range. Last fall I bought some clothing items on sale and got some really nice stuff at a real good price.

Great 9 hole course

Course is in great shape, usually not crowded, can play in about 90 minutes. Staff is very friendly, juniors are welcome and play free with paid adult after noon on Sundays. Great bargain in Central Phoenix.

Pacifico

For a quick and pleasant 9 hole round, Palo Verde fills the bill. Three par 4's and 6 par 3's make up the course layout. Walking is easy on this flat course and is recommended over using a cart. Play your irons and hybrids and leave the driver in the bag on the par 4's.
Your short game will be tested and the greens provide plenty of undulation, slope and challenge to keep you focused.

Staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming.

A nice putting and chipping area and a well kept practice range enhance the amenities at PV.

A perfect course for the novice as well as the better player.

Great course for the coin

I like this course a lot. Driving range, nice golf carts, fairways in great shape, greens were in excellent condition and pace of play was good considering the holiday. I wish I had a chance to use my driver more but all the par threes makes you work on that important short game. I would definitely play Palo Verde again.

In all fairness

First 9 top walk was $14 on line. To repeat on site was an additional $6. The only complaints I would have is how many people who were SLOW on a simple course layout, but they payed the same greens fees as anyone, so......
Beautiful weather, and for what it is, Palo Verde is a place I would recommend (over seeding has been done, and its all good).

Good lil track

Not bad lil executive 9. The first and last holes are the only holes to use driver. This course is not too difficult but will test your iron play. Fairways and greens were a bit longer than usually but still overall decent course. With smaller chipping and putting greens to practice and driving range which is only like 220 yards until you hit fence. I’ve hit over on a few monster drives. Not too shabby of a course par is 30

Pleasant morning at Palo Verde

We had a very pleasant morning at the Palo Verde course. It was in good condition right after overseeing. Greens were slow but in good condition otherwise.

Staff were friendly and helpful. An enjoyable experience overall.

Very good value!

I played a few days after aeration so the greens were bumpy, but the staff warned me in advance and this has to happen a couple of times every year. Beyond that, I found the course (9-holes, par 30) in surprisingly good shape. It was easy to the course is well maintained. Best "bang for the buck" I've found in years.
