The course at Stonecreek Golf Club has a traditional links-style layout that meanders through Paradise Valley, providing stunning mountain vistas to the south and west. The golf course has undergone several renovations since its opening and the result is superb round of golf in a beautiful setting. The hilly fairways and fast greens are immaculate and well manicured. Water hazards come into play on five holes. There are also bunkers strategically placed throughout the course. Stonecreek Golf Club also has convenient practice facilities including a putting green and chipping area. There is also a pro shop and professional golf instructors on the premises.

Stonecreek: The Golf Club - Same as it ever was

Stonecreek: The Golf Club began its life as Anasazi Country Club, designed in 1983 by Pete Dye's brother Roy. He was best known for what was a phenomenal course off of Lake Livingston in Texas, called Waterwood National, closed now for many years. For those of you have made the trek to Cabo, he also designed Cabo San Lucas Country Club which opened just before his passage in 1994. Anasazi had financial trouble, and became Mummy Mountain (Golf Club...Country Club)? It has been tweaked, since, by Greg Nash, Wadsworth Construction, Jack Snyder and Arthur Hills. With all of that said, it remains as a golf course that I would stay away from like someone with the flu.

Why? First, it's another course managed by Arcis, the heir-apparent to absolutely horrific golf management as was initially established by American Golf Corp. A secret for you: If you want to know what a company is really like, take a look at the web site GlassDoor.Com. There you will see employees and former employees discussing what works and what doesn't within the company. Yeeeouch!! What was once Evergreen Alliance Golf Limited LP became Eagle Golf and then Arcis. In Phoenix, the Arcis portfolio are courses which were once American Golf Corp. properties and generally, pretty awful.

Designwise the course is iffy: One and two are both kind of goofy and the greens are ALWAYS incredibly thin, grass wise. Six is just ridiculous, a poorly designed hole, again with a green that rarely seems healthy. Eight is.... impossible to describe other than: "Really?" Ten is similar... with a green complex that defies explanation. The rest of the holes are not really notable, at all.

I first played this course years ago in what was the Western States mini tour and was unimpressed then. Nothing has changed since then. I could point you in the direction of 5 or 6 other courses you could play for similar money and promise you that you would have a better experience. Aguila, Papago, The Legacy, Grand Canyon University, Wigwam Red or Gold... and there are more. Do your due diligence and you'll find that to be true for you, as well.

Wet

The course is still very wet from the recent monsoons. Greens started drying off by late morning. The course is well maintained. Staff was great.

Last played here a year ago. Greens in pretty good shape for this time of year. Fairways a little thin in a lot of areas. Overall, a great value when you consider a cheeseburger was inclusive of the greenie! Course still requires thoughtful course management off the tees and approaches. Especially the par 5's. It's always nice to play a nice course close to home that challenges you! Will be back soon!

Ratty Fairways

The fairways have far two many bald, and balding, areas. Greens were fine. Even at this time of year, too many other courses at comparable prices, in far better condition.

July 18th round

The course layout is excellent. Many holes force you to think about your tee shot as you stand on the tee. Do I lay up or try to fly it over the trouble? Will I go into the hazard if I hit driver?

The greens were in fairly good shape, but were pretty soggy and very slow. Bunkers were just mediocre as some had nice sand but others were crusty and hard...too inconsistent. Not sure why, but the course was very soft and looked well watered but there were large areas without grass and appeared pretty scruffy. Almost as though there had been a flood recently and much of the grass died. This made for an overall average at best experience to play here.

With better conditions, I might play here again. But Stonecreek will really need to elevate the overall condition of the course in order for the player to get his money’s worth...too much competition with other courses that offer a better experience.

Stonecreek Golf Course

Course is set up nicely. Bar and grill is a good stop before or after your round. The pro shop is very friendly. The range unfortunately was only set up for irons on todays round and not sure if it's like that always but that didnt affect the round. The course is layed out for more skilled players but a beginner can find his or her way around the course. Would definitely try this course when the weather is not as humid. Fun course.
