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.

Plenty of sand, much of which was not soft. Greens<br/> In good shape. Fairways very short grass and hard,<br/> dried out.

On 1-2 holes it was difficuly to identify which green I should be playing to. Actually played to the wrong green on the 3rd hole! Course rating and the yardage from the tee boxes seemed to be off. Played front nine twice as I ran into bad traffic on the 10th. It's an OK course if you are learning to play but you can find better course conditions for similar price.

If you have not played Falcon recently then you have not played it. In the last 5 months the course has steadily and dramatically improved. New owner took over in January and he actually cares about the course. So refreshing. It still has a way to go, but the change has been 1000% better.

I have played this course four times in the last six months and found it to be in excellent condition and challenging. I joined the men's club but have not seen any announcements regarding events. The manager or owner's need to get on the ball regarding event's, and price's. I came here from Villa De Paz which has recently closed and found this course to be in much better condition. If I owned this course I would have planned events much sooner because I believe this course and location to be a great money maker (I am a business Man).

If you are coming of the 303 signage for the entrance is no where to be found till ur past the pot hole filled driveway. Customer service in the pro shop is non existent. Do urself a favor and teach the gentleman at the front desk how to operate a computerized cash register. No scorecard to be found anywhere. So I went back into the trailer (pro shop) and asked for one. I was handed a xeroxed paper copy of one. No course layout, no local rules. I enjoyed the layout of the course but most of it is in disrepair. Put some sand in the fairway bunkers! Pace of play was good considering my group was the youngest on the course. I'm 61 by the way.

Overall not a good experience. Drop the price another 10 bucks and get a beverage cart. The warm water in the bright yellow igloo coolers down make it.

Arrived a little early and was given the option to go right off by myself which I did. Moved rapidly along and went thru a 2-some on the 5th hole. Next people I saw were on 13 and followed them in. The course was in transition between rye and Bermuda put looked and played good. The greens were firm but putted true and of particular benefit to me, at 100 degrees, were the water coolers on many holes. Thank you!

Haven't played here in years but will again return soon.

This course is fun to play. Especially during the week when the fighter jets are flying. Not particularly manicired. Not really tricky or tough. The greens are the teeth of this course. Lots of undulation but smooth and true.

Falcon has moved up in my ratings. The course was generally in good condition tee to green. The fairways are lush and getting plenty of water. The wind was tough and the 3 long par 3s were killer!

Course is in good shape despite appearing to be quite understaffed. Pace was ridiculously slow- need a marshal to push the pokeys. No drink cart with HOT conditions and little shade.Staff is great,management needs to step up & fix these discrepencies to return Falcon to the great course it used to be.

A decent layout..counter person was a little gruff..not overly friendly. Fairways and greens were not bad, rough and desert areas untidy with a lot of debris but you are not supposed to hit it there. For $30 it was a good deal. Water containers on the course were empty on the front nine and by the range.

The Falcon has improved significantly over the past year. The course has some interesting holes and the greens are in good shape. I also enjoy the Luke airforce jets providing some additional entertainment. Good value for money.
