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.

Course was in good shape and a good value, but the pace was slow, almost 5 hours long. On course ranger didn't seem to want to do anything to quicken the pace. He just said that how things were.

Played this course today in summer for a quick round of golf. Starter friendly but course is really not well cared for even during transition period. Greens were ok and rolled nice and fairways were ok for this time of year. Once you are even just a little off the fairways you have bare lies. I was extremely disappointed that .it took 2 1/2 hours to play just 11 holes especially in the hot weather. I would not return in season if the pace was 4# hours in the summer. If you are a beginner or are looking for cheap golf this is your place. They do have beverage cart which left the course at 11 am and the halfway house is closed and you don't go by the clubhouse at the turn. Just an overall disappointing day.

I like this course. Have played it off and on over the past 30 years (it was Camelot before....I believe)

The layout for the course is good. I thought they over sold the morning tee times with an approximate time between reservations close to 5-7 minutes apart. My tee off was a little over 15 minutes after the tee time, then waiting on every shot for the first 6-7 holes with gradual improvement and waiting only on the tee box.

I like the staff, they were all helpful and friendly.

The practice greens were in great shape but some of the playing greens were a little rough. All in all the greens were good as well as fast.

Inconsistent greens. Put it on the practice green and was shocked how slow the putting was but that doesn’t bother me as long as we know before hand. Got to the first hole and could hardly keep the ball on the green it was so fast. It appeared the greens were having problems as there was many brown areas with almost no grass

I play this course frequently and it never fails to be challenging and, so far, in good condition. The only complaint I have is that they do not put water in the course for the early morning crowd. I like to get off early to beat the heat but there is no water and the beverage cart doesn't come around until the 10th hole. I have started bringing my own...and that works well. Summer rates make this a great value. Try It!!

We found the golf course was not in great shape.

The greens were very dry and some bare. The two courses we golfers previously we in much better shape and cheaper. We are from Canada and we did not find the staff very friendly.

I have played this course several times in the past. Always only in fair shape. No change this time. I hoped that it would be in better shape since snowbird season had just ended and the price is lower than a few weeks ago. I was wrong. Course is just not in good shape. A few holes are nice but most are in need of grass. Anything outside of the rough is bare. Not nice to look at. Greens are thin and roll okay but again are not maintained well. At best this is no more than a $30 course.

I play here regularly and usually tee off early. Today, we teed off before 7am so we could get through early. Unfortunately we had a group in front of us (the only other one ahead of us) who were playing VERY slow. Not sure what they were doing but we had to wait at every tee box and fairway. The marshal came around several times and talked to us but didn't seem to be able to speed them up at all.

We had a good round but it took over 4 hours when an early AM round usually takes us less than 3. I come from the south and the marshals there controlled the pace of play.

In will be back because this is a fun course, but course management could be improved.
