Not well laid out
Palmer Course is not well laid out and hazards are of no effect other than a visual illusion.
Much more playable than the Wildfire - Faldo course. Still challenging though. Didn't like that all the short game and chipping areas were designated for members only.
The course was in great shape and pace of play was excellent. Good value.
Excellent shape for the heat
Greens and fairways were very nice given the summer pounding in AZ.
The rate of the Hot Deal was excellent for the type of course we played (Palmer).
Staff very froendly
Course in very good shape....greens are a bit quick but pretty true.....I played the Faldo course last week and that also was in very good condition....both good tracks to play..........
Whirlwind golf course is great!
Excellent course. Hadn’t played it in years, but will no doubt play it again soon.
Always a pleasure to play up at Wildfire, either course. The course was in great shape despite the monsoon the night before. The course is very playable, fair always enjoyable.
Staff was friendly, golf was fun, the course was in good condition for middle of August. I would play again.
Always a treat to play at Wildfire. Great course and staff.
Lots of bunkers and you better drive the ball straight it's a fun golf course
Was really looking forward to playing this course today but since they just punched and seeded the greens they were very difficult to play and most of the fairways had large dirt patches. It was frustrating when you made a great tee shot middle of the fairway only to be left in a dirt patch that was either muddy from the recent rain or super dry and hard. Im sure this course isnt usually this rough but I was very dissappointed .
Good but not great
They have issues with their fairways, large patches dead grass and mud that required a “bump” to grass to play approach shots. In some cases you had to move 10-20 feet to find grass, disappointing.
Still Love This Course
I had not played Wildfire Palmer for a few years. It has always been one of my favorite courses in the valley. It is a fun layout with a good variety of hole. Greens were in very good condition, fairways were burned out in high spots, which is typical for Phoenix courses in the summer.
Greens & Tees were great , most fairways are very patchy grass or just plain bare !! something has gone wrong with the fairways the grass is mostly gone , it's hard to hit off without grass there, won't be going back this year anymore
great value, great features
Played as a twosome 17 holes in 2.5 hrs. Skipped a par 5 with 2 foursomes that were slow and nobody ahead of them
Other than that really enjoyed our outing and look forward to more rounds this summer.
