Par 72
Length 7258 yards
Slope 139
Rating 73.9

John Fought and Tom Lehman collaborated on the course at Verrado Golf Club, a voluptuous design that meanders through the old Caterpillar bulldozer proving grounds. It's up and down for 18 holes and that doesn't mean "chip and a putt." The course is good test with chances to score and a handful of memorable and scenic holes.

Where Verrado Golf Course will eat you alive is in the bunkers. Some bunkers are hard to carry, others collect wayward shots. But the fairways are wide enough to avoid trouble, and what appears to be the safe shot off the tee will often bring greenside bunkers more into play. So pick your poison.

While the back nine is far superior to the front, going out still has its fair share of memorable holes. A huge boulder 30 feet tall on the par-4 eighth jets out from the left side around which the fairway shapes itself. A perfect line from the tee box is to take the ball five yards right off its edge, but hitting the boulder is certain death by desert. The boulder was scheduled to crumble via dynamite, but stood up to the TNT and was deemed an immoveable object. Open and playable for all skill levels, the Verrado Golf Club is a sublime experience.

Course is good test. Bar and Grill needs to be more customer oriented and ensure if there are specials posted on golf carts that they are in effect.

Our group played the Saturday before over seeding at Verrado. Even though the fairways were being prepped for over seeding, the course was still beautiful and great fun to play. The scenery is breathtaking as you travel the path through the mountains. The only problem we had occurred after play when we went to the restaurant. While we were playing we commented on the large signs posted on the back of the carts advertising happy hour with 1/2 price appetizers and we had decided to stay and eat there rather than going elsewhere. We ordered drinks and inquired about happy hour and we were told there was no happy hour on Saturdays. When we asked why the cart advertising specified happy hour was on Mondays thru Sundays, we were told that it was no longer true. One of our group then went to the pro shop to inquire why it was posted on the carts and he was told also that it was not true and nothing could be done about it. Ten minutes had since gone by and we were still waiting for our drinks. When another ten minutes passed, and as we watched one person after another walk to the bar to get drinks, we decided that the chances of getting anything to eat would be pretty slim. We left and found a very nice Italian restaurant in the town square to eat in. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to eat after playing Verrado. I would also suggest that management take the time to remove the cart advertising while the course is closed.

Enjoyable Golf

For this time of the year, conditions were great. Very friendly organization with no need to even visit the pro shop if you pay in advance. The course layout is solid without being overly difficult and fun to play. Nice driving range too.

Disappointed

This used to be one of the best course in the area and state. The grey tee boxes are not flat and are in bad shape. Most of the greens are dying or maybe recovering from being dead. On hole #1 they had the pin location directly in the middle of a dead spot. Didnt seem like they were watering much compared to Victory. Maybe they are just putting all their money into Victory?

Dave’s review

Course was in good condition considering the hot summer we’ve had. Staff was very welcoming and polite. Lucky to hook up with 2 other singles that were a pleasure to golf with.

Verrado

First time out playing the founders course, have played the victory a couple times and can’t go wrong with either. The Founders is a much more traditional desert course where as the Victory is a tad more memorable taking advantage of a lot of white rock to give the course a totally different aesthetic than most local desert courses. As far as difficulty goes the workers at their respective courses will both tell you theirs plays 3-5 shots harder. In my opinion they play about the same difficulty. Both courses are in SUPERB condition for the price the only two differences I noticed in surface quality was the founders course may get a taaaad more water giving it slightly greener grass and more prominent rough however the victory course being the newer of the two had pure white sand bunkers that you would find on tour. I drive the 45 minutes from the Tempe area and would do it every time if I could get my buddies to agree. The Verrado courses are easily my favorite places to play. After 3 years of driving around this desert trying to find the perfect round I am pleased to say the search is over. Oh and your greens fee at either course includes unlimited use of their scenic driving range fully stocked with fresh pearly Taylormade practice balls. If you have any desire to play either of these two courses pull the trigger and make it happen.
