Fun and tough
Plenty of sand, much of which was not soft. Greens In good shape. Fairways very short grass and hard, dried out.
Great afternoon of golf
We were three and had a great round no real waiting. Play was real good course was in great shape and all the jets made it very interesting
Had not been here for a couple years but it is a great place to golf
our booking was for 12:00 (Hot Deal) which was changed to 12:07 at check-in and as we were ready to tee off we were told that a couple of extra men's league teams were to go ahead of us. Since our friends had to be done by 4:30 we refused to let them go ahead of us. The starter was not happy about that.
The speed of play was extremely slow and if we would have let the extra teams go ahead of us we would not have been able to finish before sun down.
I predict the Falcon will be close down wi5in 5 years
I’ve played the Falcon dozens of times over the past 8 years and it has consistently filled an important niche in the marketplace......it provided the “best slice for the price” in the west valley. For years you could get a twilight rate with cart of $25 or less. The layout is fun, the greens and tees were always good, fairways were playable, there’ was no sand in the bunkers and off the fairways was pretty rough, but for the money it was a good deal. I understand the course is now under new ownership and the same fair to poor overall golf experience is being offered for a twilight rate of $35. It ain’t gonna fly! While I understand that it’s hard to pay the bills at $25 a golfer, there are several other much superior courses in the area offering twilight rates of $39-$40. I’ll gladly play the Falcon for $30 or less but it isn’t worth a nickel more.
Solid Course with Friendly Staff
Golf Course was in very playable shape on fairways and greens. Overseed was good.
There was no on-course beverage service.
Staff was courteous and helpful before and after the round. Pace of play was very slow, 5 hours after a 20 minute start delay.
Well at least the air show is cool
Reading the reviews we should have known better than to try this track. If they actually took care of the course and gave it some.....OK, LOTS of TLC, it might be worth the trip. As it is, it’s a value-driven course that is best left to those who like watching the fighter jets at neighboring Luke Air Force base versus an enjoyable game of golf. Even getting a Hot Deal its not worth the $35 fee.
Desert areas were cleaned up........made for a quicker round and fewer lost balls!
another great day
Course in good shape this year. Grass is much
better but don't get as much roll
Haven’t played course in a few years. We heard a new owner attempting to fix it up. Greens were great, fairways pretty good. Once off the fairway some messy areas but could find the balls easily.
Bunkers still a little too firm but we can see improvements. We loved the jets so close overhead although a little loud, was very impressive. We will return.
Course is getting better and they are working hard to improve it. You need to try it.
More challenging than it looks
Golfed this course for the first time without ever seeing it. Was a bit disappointed in the appearance. Mostly dirt paths rather than paved makes for a very dusty round of golf. Todd met us at our car and was very nice. He unloaded clubs and took them over to cart while we chcked in. When we were done Todd was right there again and cleaned our clubs before loading them back into our car. My biggest issue was the lack of a scorecard that showed and information on the course - no picture of layout. In fact scorecards were xeroxed pieces of paper that were quite blurry. Signs on each teebox also lacked graphic showing layout of tee box to green. The course was in pretty good condition though and actually challenging. When on the back nine you get to see cars racing at the racetrack next door which was pretty cool.
The course is set up very fairly for an average player. The fairways are in great condition overall and well groomed. Don’t stray off of the fairways too far or you will be penalized. The greens are in great condition. Well manicured and the ball rolled well on them. I have played this course many times before. I like that the mines have been switched and think the course is in a better condition now than previously. Overall a thumbs up for the ground staff.
Fun course and comes with an air show.
Course was in good shape. The greens were the best I've ever seen them. Pace of play was slow for a Friday. Air Force jets were flying. Fun to watch as the course is next to Luke AFB.
Better than last year.
We golf Falcon each year when we visit Phoenix. The course conditions are much improved from last year. Things are a little rough around the edges and in the desert portions, but the fairways and greens were very playable
The course is handy to where we are staying. Newly over seeded which made it soft and caused the course to play longer than the yardage indicated. Greens were in good shape though.
keeps getting better
we play here about every 3 months.... I guess there is new management or ownership and the course is being restored.... greens were slow but true due to the overseed.... well worth playing here again.... plenty of golfers today so the word is out to play falcon again....
Golfing after reseeding
It's never a great course after the re-seeding is being done so one has to expect that. It was just great to be out on a beautiful day! We had to stay off the fairways with the cart to let the grass take hold. The tee boxes were a little long and the greens were very slow, which we had trouble with the pace - always an excuse right!! Anyway for the good price we got on Golf Now we have no complaints. We will be back again as we enjoy this course, especially when the side show is flying!!
