Rating 58.4

The executive-length course at Continental Golf Club is a popular choice due to the friendly staff, convenient location, and challenging game. The course features undulating greens that are in excellent shape, as is the entire course. Unique mounding surrounds the narrow fairways. A drainage ditch and two lakes also come into play on the golf course. The signature hole is the par-4 18th hole, which calls for not only a tee shot but also an approach shot over water. The course plays fast but it is still quite enjoyable. Continental Golf Club also has practice facilities including a large driving range, putting green, and practice green.

Best Value in Scottsdale

Played at midday and finished in less than three hours, which is a nice feature of this short course. The greens were consistent and in excellent condition, somewhat soft yet fast to putt. Most are not guarded as there are not many sand traps. Fairways in decent shape. Some tee boxes are hilly like a pitcher's mound would be my only criticism; I sure wish they would level those off.

Just Fair

The course plays very slow due to the high number of par threes. The staff are there but not overly enthused about it. The fairways are somewhat like goat pastures;; rough. Trying to find your ball on hole 1 and 9 is difficult due to all the calls from the driving range.

Nice Views of the Mountains! Course and Facilities could use some TLC!

Arrived about 11:45 AM for a 12:30 PM tee time that I booked on GolfNow.Com. Have not played this course in a long time so I thought I would give it a try again. The guy at the bag drop was gone so I just left my bag at the stand. Went to the golf shop and met Kevin who looked up my reservation and said I was good to go. He said go ahead and take off whenever you see the first tee empty, the course was not that busy. Used the restroom and had to inform the shop the paper towels were out. Wonder if the grill employees have their own stash? Went back down to the bag drop and met Billie who said just put your clubs on any cart. Grabbed a cart and headed to the first tee. Met my other single who joined me, Leo, nice guy. Drove off the tee and after my first fairway shot discovered both sand bottles were completely empty with absolutely no sand available on the course. I like to be a good steward of the course but today I could not. Lots of standing water on the course and quite a bit near some cart paths, I mean 6-8 inches in some places. Pace of play was good, fairway conditions and aprons were OK. Greens were good.

In summary, the course has been here forever and I feel that Arcis should spend a few bucks and make it a little better, great location, nice exec 18 if you want to play a fast round.

It was hot

It was hot (96F) with little breeze, but it wasn't too bad to play. Had a good time, played pretty well (70) and met some really nice people.

Good Executive Course

The course was in very good shape. The fairways (and greens are very nice. The greens ran on the fast side. Pace of play was great. We finished in about 3 hours. Sometimes it can be slow at this course. Very friendly and helpful staff. A great course to use all of the irons in the bag. .

Played with "Gusto"

I was able to start before my actual tee time, due to the light number of golfers that day. I did not have any playing partners that day. It was very windy (20-25 mph, with gusts in the 30's). There were some large hunks of palm bark and leaves on some greens. It made for a challenging day around the greens and off the tees. Overall, it was a good time and the pace of play was great (no one in front of me on the back nine.

Waste of $$$

We decided to play here as a walk on as we were told it was Wide Open. We waited on the first tee for 15 minutes and it just got worse from there. Balls flying everywhere as the course is Really right. Would highly recommend not playing here unless you have nothing better to do.

Wonderful round on a beautiful executive course

I have been playing this course a few times in the last two months and it is always a pleasure to enjoy this nice 18 executive course; always in very good condition and the pace of play, particularly today was excellent. One of the best course around to improve your short game….I highly recommend it

Good Short Game Experience

This course was close to where I was staying so I gave it a spin with A Golf Now hot deal. The pace of play was quite slow. Front was over 2 hours and the back took almost 1.5 hours. There were many novice golfers playing. Better here than on a full sized golf course! Greens were firm but rolled true. A few traps and water hazards made the course more interesting. There are better short courses around but I would play again with a GN hot deal.

Great executive course

For an executive course this one is super fun. They have a few challenging holes sprinkled in the front and back nine, with 18 being a really fun ending hole, with your second (or maybe third) shot being over water. My buddy and I walked, 95% of people rode, but we didn’t slow the pace down any. In my opinion it’s a fun course, one that you can hit all your clubs, if you want.

Executive

Disappointed to find out this was an executive course. Par 60. Course not in great condition, but greens were consistent and in good shape. Nice people, and nice experience overall.
