Located near the Estrella and White Tank Mountains, the Falcon Golf Club is an affordable, user-friendly course with an interesting layout. The front nine has a target-style layout with a desert landscape while the back nine has a more traditional design. The greens are medium-sized with a subtle break and the fairways are wide open. Water hazards come into play on two holes and there are numerous bunkers as well, especially on the back nine. The signature hole of the golf course is the par-3, fifth hole. This notable hole has water to the right of the green and bunkers on the front right and left. With its location just south of Luke Air Force Base, fighter jets are regularly seen flying over Falcon Golf Club.

Fairways need work. Greens in good shape. No course ranger. Pace of play was slow. Foursome in front of us was at least a hole behind. When they left the green, we would hit our approach shot, putt out and when we would get to the next hole they hadn’t finished teeing off.

We enjoyed the day here. It's not a top-end course but for the price we paid, it was well worth it. We dropped a wallet in the parking lot and someone turned it in so thanks to whomever did that and the staff made sure we retrieved it. The course is right beside an air base so the added air show was cool to watch. If you're looking for an inexpensive round, this works well. Greens were good to putt on. All in all, a good day.

The pace was really slow on the back nine. The greens were pretty hard and the balls rolled really fast. Course conditions were ok the could still use some

Nice local track. Not to busy, so easy to get around in 4hr. Course is in good shape. Challenging for the average player. Fairways are tight, greens average speed, not to many surprises... aleays live the jets flying by.

Tee boxes were good. Fairways were horrible. Half of greens were good and other half were not good.

Most fun part of golf was watching the Air Force F-35 fighter jets take off and land, as the course is right next to Luke Air Force vase.

Very low green fee for a very poorly conditioned golf course.

The fairways are plush and the greens are great. They had a watering issue a couple of weeks ago but that has been fixed and the course is in great shape. There is no better staff than the people at Falcon, from the pro shop to the maintenance workers.

If you haven't played here in the last few weeks you are missing out on a great course at a very reasonable price.

Played here a few times a few years back and my wife and I liked it but we stopped playing because it was very wet and muddy, played here again a few times in the past few weeks and the same... wet and muddy, course is known for being wet, played late Sunday and the whole course was so muddy everywhere, irons took a 2" deep divot, clubs, ball and shoes were always muddy, bunkers are almost unplayable, I do like the course and staff is friendly but enough with the water
