The Painted Mountain Golf Club is a challenging desert-style course with a variety of different tees to accommodate every age group and skill level. The course offers a lengthier challenge from the first hole, a par-5 dogleg right, to the last, which requires an approach shot over water in order to reach the green. The Painted Mountain Golf Club, in addition to the course, is also home to the John Jacob's Golf School.

Poor experience

The pace of play was terrible. We had to wait on every shot and at times there as many as 4 groups on one hole.
There is no driving range or warm up chipping area. A net to hit into would help.
The cart person was very friendly and helpful. The staff at the pro shop was helpful too. The person checking our cart in at the end of the round asked how the day went and we expressed our concern with the pace of play and said nothing.
The greens were slow but they were consistent. The fairways were thin in a lot of areas.
Needless to say, I will not be back.

Wide open fairways makes this course user friendly. And the staff at Painted Mountain is absolutely fantastic to work with. Great way to spend a relaxing and enjoyable day. My favorite course here.

Great staff

As I was leaving the home to go play I noticed a water leak from my irragation system and I was loosing a lot of water. I quickly called the staff and they allowed me to cancel my T time. They didnt have to do it but they did and I was at least two hours out from T time. I truly appreciate the staffs customer friendly and professional attitude. Thank you for having such a great prefessional staff

Congrats on the slowest round

I have ever played. I honestly have never played a round that slow. After 11 holes I finally walked off the course for a round that was heading for at least 5 1/2 hours. On top of that they were 20 minutes late on our tee time. At one point there were 4 groups on one tee box. Apparently there was a 44 player tournament where the players thought they were Tiger Woods. Only once did someone come out to tell the to hurry up.

I went into the golf shop and asked for a 9 hole refund which I thought was reasonable, but was told they did not have a 9 hole rate. He gave me a 18 hole rain check which was nice except there are a ton of restrictions on it.

Course was in decent shape for June. I would not recommend it for any single digit handicaps. It is very short which caused a lot of the delays.

Overall, I would not recommend and would not play there. They only care about money and just want to pack as many golfers they can as possible.

Fun little track -will B back!

Fist off Robin inthe shop was cordial and helpful with a schedule thing and Skip outside seemed happy to see Us at the start W/Bob ready to help when We finished, that’s appreciated. Mostly parkland style the course through the fairways and greens are in Nice shape, even AND undulating W/firm greens that rolled very well. Bunkering sand is inconsistent but several were splendid actually & the tee boxes were sparse on a few holes but U put a peg under the ball on ‘em so, . . . . . FUN track I’ll B back to soon, BIG value for some afternoon “hacking !” THANKS Folks -B Well.

Good day for golf

Had an early tee time for this course and it worked out great with the weather. The course was a little dry but playable as long as you stay in the fairway. Play was a little slow but overall not bad. If you are looking for a decent track for a good price this is a great place to keep in golf shape. The staff is outstandingly friendly.

Great time to be at painted mountain

This was the perfect day to play Painted Mountain. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were the best I’ve seen in a while. Pace of play was excellent. The rough was brown and patchy but it’s suppose to penalize bad shots so hush to those that complained that the rough wasn’t perfect and pristine. Greens were firm but true to putt on. Play here quick before overseeding begins. Thank you to management for moving that poor example of a starter from last time somewhere else, the afternoon starter today was great and should be praised for his positive representation of your course.

Hot in Mesa

Greens were in great shape! Course did everything right about reducing contact spread of the virus. Only negatives are gas carts instead of electric, and no driving range.

Very fun

Our 3some played in just about 4 hours and 15 minutes. We had a great time. The course is in very good shape. There are challenges for all skill levels. We played from the Blue tees and it was perfect for us. Pace of play was great except around a couple of the par 3s. It was a little bit of a bottleneck at those but picked up pretty quick each time. We will absolutely be back again soon.
