Pace of Play Atrocious
Golfed here for the first time after passing it a ton. From the first tee, pace of play was terrible. Snowbird couples everywhere and not a ranger in sight. Course was in great shape and would love to give it another shot in the summer.
A nice course
Really enjoyed the course. We will definitely play it again.
This course was cart path only but the course was in good shape.
Slow afternoon of Golf
Course was in good shape, would have been easier to walk given the cart path only requirements. Play was very slow - started at 1430 and only got 12 holes in before darkness.
I was pleasantly suprised to find this a fairly challenging and scenic course with some shots longer than they look. Greens and traps were in outstanding condition. The only negative was that we were following a tournament and it got bottled up on the 15th hole and subsequently played the last 2 in near dark. All in all...want to come back again soon.
I like this course alot
Stone Creek never disappoints, this condition of the course continues to change to the better. A very good golf course
Nice layout, pace of play too slow
On pace for a 5+ hour round on a Monday. Need I say more.
Hello John Ryan,
Our apologies that pace of play did not meet expectations. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can address your experience personally.
Done with Stonecreek
There are four of us. Two near eighty and two in their mid-60’s. We do not play “ cartpath only” golf. When I booked this round I was not told we would have to stay on the cartpaths. We didn’t learn until we got to the course. Come to find out the course had been overwatered and the rough was incredibly high because the head maintenance guy was sick. If you went off the fairway you couldn’t find your ball unless you stepped on it. We got soaked walking through the high grass. We agreed that this was singularly the worst day of golf we ever experienced. Thinking we were with a tournament that teed off the backside, the ranger came out to tell us we were two holes behind the group in front of us even though we turned in two hours. He apologized when he realized we were the lead group. We play every week year round. We are done with Stonecreek golf course.
We truly are sorry that your group was unaware of the CPO rule. Unfortunately, since your group booked through Golf Now we were unable to inform you of the rule personally. For future reference if you check your online tee time confirmation email any unusual course maintenance or cart rules will be posted in the tee times notes. The rough was certainly higher than we would like and has been addressed. The wetness of the course you experienced was from dew as your group teed off at 6:36am. It typically takes a few hours to dissipate. Again, we apologize that your experience did not meet expectations and hope you try the course again when the CPO rule is lifted November 10th.
Well, the course was scalped for overseeding. Didn't know that until I got there. It was a typical hot Phoenix day-not the courses fault, obviously-but the pace of play was the worst I have ever seen. I am a Phoenix native, been golfing for about 40 years all over the valley. By the six hole, other foursomes were giving up and driving back to the clubhouse. There were three or four foursomes waiting on the holes in front of us. We gave up on number seven and headed in. There was a Cold Beer and Cheeseburger restaurant around the corner so the day wasn't a total disappointment.
Good layout and challenging course. Getting ready to shutdown in a couple of days for over seeding Therefore it was not in great shape. But even the greens were in poor shape. Hopefully after they reopen everything will get back to good.
During this time of year in Arizona be diligent in your choice of course to play. CALL the course and ask how conditions are. This place was scalped in preparation for over seeding. I would never play a course in this condition. I checked their website and found no mention of current conditions. Waste of time and money and gas.
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.
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.
Great service. Greens were bumpy, Sam in the grill is the BEST!!! You have to Get a Crush burger.
Stone Temple Pilot
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!
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.
