Only played because I had a $20 reward for being a returning golf now VIP. Only one of two courses that I could use the reward on. Funny how Golfnow gives new members a box of Taylormade TP5 golf balls and only gives returning members two $20 rewards which can only be used after 2:00. In the entire Phoenix area there are only 2 hot deal golf courses with tee times after 2:00 and one is an hour from my house. Not really much of a reward from Golfnow. Would have much preferred the golf balls.

The course is fairly narrow and getting ready for winter overseeding next week so condition was less than perfect. Once it is overseeded might be worth playing.

I've played this course over 250 times over the years ( yes I live close by). It rarely changes. Greens are Great, and they do have really green fairways (because they water alot). Be prepared to have mud on your shoes and you will get several muddy lies.

Overall just another Great Phoenix Course that you can play with ease.

Tough course. Sand traps could use some sand. Greens were good, but slow. Fairways inconsistent.

Course needs some attention.

All in all, would rather spend money on other courses in the area.

We had a 6:04 tee time on Saturday August 19, however course had no idea because they had a problem with their system. After getting out and playing 9 holes, we found ourselves in the middle of a tournament. After about 2 plus hours on the back alone, we finally left after 15 holes. Of course there was nobody to complain to as there was no ranger or club services attendant around after the round. Not the first time I had this issue with Stonecreek, we used to consider this our home course until joining a private course nearby. If you are going to play this course, choose a nice day, and not on a weekend as the only thing you'll enjoy is the weather. It's too bad too, the layout is fantastic

My first round at Stone Creek was super challenging. Sacrificing fewer strokes all day to avoid hazards. Accuracy is required on every hole. From what I remember the greens are all elevated slightly and surrounded by bunkers. It's an overall excellent course. I fully enjoyed my time here. Staff were friendly, don't remember seeing a cart girl, it was quite early though.

I did not enjoy my round. Had not played there in several years. The course grass .... a lot of crab grass, bare spots, and bumpy fairways .greens were ok. Would not recommend.. the only consolation...it was only 19.00 on golf now.

Got to play as a single and went around in just short of 3 hours. Course was in good shape...some of the fairways were a bit rough, but that is to be expected this time of year. A nice blend of holes that do challenge ones shot making abilities. Will be back to play again.

3 hours with a 5-9 handicap as a single? really? That doesnt sound like a good pace of play at all. Maybe you were walking .

I rarely write bad reviews but I felt I had to this time. First in defense of the course the greens had recently been punched so the greens being bad in that regard couldn't be helped. However the fact that some of the greens actually had large barren spots that actually had created depressions in the greens can be helped. A couple of them were so bad that we joked they should have put up ground under repair stakes. The tee boxes were so chewed up you had a hard time finding a level place to stand. While it is summertime in Arizona and I know things can definitely dry out, having multiple fairways with multiple large areas of grassless barren dirt is unacceptable On the positive side the cart girl was very friendly and the staff when we returned the carts was as well. Bottom line for me is this course is in such terrible shape right now I can't recommend it to anyone at any price. None of the other courses in the area I play at are in anywhere near the poor condition that this one is now.

Stonecreek has a great layout and nice mix of doglegs. Holes 10 and 17 share a green and if it's your first time playing here you could get confused as to which pin to aim for. It is a fairly open course and only challenging due to the below average conditions. Reminds me of all the other Arcis properties, which all have great layouts, but aren't taken care of enough to be in good shape. If you can get a good deal on a tee time here and are a double digit handicap, then play it all day, but if you are a single digit looking for tournament practice you will need to go somewhere that is a step above.

Nice course. Some traditional style set-ups built in with some more difficult layouts. It is a resort course, next to Embassy Suites. In the wintertime it gets a lot of play from the guests there. Not easy to get a tee time. For locals like myself, I can only really play in the summertime because of the rates that are charged in the wintertime.

Course gets good irrigation, but can be pretty soggy in the morning hours. Greens get quick in the late morning. Greens are readable and average without too many undulations. Enjoy!

It's a mature course, is showing age and wear.

The greens need attention. Elevated greens makes it
