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.

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.

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.

I played there June 10th, 2018 and the course was not very well maintained at all. It also smelled pretty bad which may be from the recent storms. It looks like the course is in a run off area as every heavily wooded area off the hole had a ton of trash in it. There were a ton of inconsistencies in the grass and dead/ dirt patches. The greens were really slow, I mean really slow. The course is very challenging however and could be a little more fun to play during a time when the course conditions are a little better.

I have played this course numerous times, since it first opened as a Pete Dye course called Anasazi (then later redesigned and called Mummy Mountain, and now redesigned again and called Stone Creek). While I am partial to the original Pete Dye design, this is still a very good course that will challenge players of all skill levels. The greens had been punched and sanded recently. While they putted fairly true, there was a lot of sand on the greens. These were some of the softest greens that I have played this summer in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. I had to repair ball marks on almost every approach shot to the greens. The sand traps could use more sand, but overall, the conditions for Phoenix in the summer time were very good. It took us about 4 hours and 40 minutes to complete 18 holes. I always enjoy playing this course. A good value for the money.

we did not realize the course was played through a water retention area and you followed it all 18 holes. the cart paths were tore up and cracked, there was a huge two peeked cracked part between 16 & 17 you could loose control of your cart if you had any speed. I didn't enjoy the large mud holes in the middle of the fare ways, didn't know if we would get the cart stuck or not. I have never complained about a course, but this one does need some work....

There was a large group ahead of us. About 12-15 players. They said they were going to play in 3-somes. It did start that way. However by the 3rd hole they were all joined up at the tees, talking and joking around. Then split into a couple 4-somes and a 6-some. This was by the 6th or 7th hole. They split up so as not to be bunched going by the clubhouse on the turn but by the 12th hole were a group of 6 again. a single player and a 2-some ahead of us gave up and quit at the 13th and said they would report this to the clubhouse. We went around them and skipped 2 holes because it was taking about 35-40 min per hole on the back 9. With skipping 2 holes it still took us over 4.5 hours to play. We didn't see a Ranger before or after the players quit to report the slow/large group.

Grass was good for the most part. Several holes had muddy and wet areas. Most sand traps good sand but few (I was in) had hard sand.

I'll play this course every chance I get.

The pace of play was 3 hours for the front nine, 2 hours for the back. 5 hour round. Middle of the fairway and all of the rough had dirt patches that were unplayable. It's a shame. Please water the course.

Course was in pretty rough shape. Very disappointed that they started on both nines. We book The 5:30 a.m. tee time so we can finish in 3 hours. When we made the turn they had 2 fivesomes in front of us. Finished front nine in hour and 45 minutes. Back nine was over 3. Will probably not go back
