The sun shines 350 days a year in Phoenix and you can enjoy this factor at Ahwatukee Country Club. "Ahwatukee" is Crow Indian for "house of dreams", but this could easily be the "golf course of dreams".

The semi-private Ahwatukee Country Club offers an 18-hole golf course designed by John Bulla in 1974 that is open year-round and includes a driving range, as well as a cart included in the greens fee. The golf course is par-72 and measures 6,713 yards from the championship tees.

The Ahwatukee Country Club golf course features a fairly wide-open layout, but has out-of-bounds areas on either side of the fairways - including some with houses, so watch out for those windows - as well as water hazards on some holes. The putting greens play fast.

After a tight front nine on the Ahwatukee Country Club golf course, things open up on a razor-sharp par-4 dogleg 10th hole, with no chance to cut corners: there's a towering forest to the left.

The fairways were in nice shape, but the greens were really in bad shape... Some with very little grass on them. Tee boxes were in rough shape too. this time of year it should all be in good shape.

The layout is fun. The greens were not as smooth and fast as they could have been. Tee boxes were pretty chewed up with sand filled divots. The traps were perfectly prepared though a little wet from rain previous 2 days. We got off early and did not have to wait on a single shot.

Staff was very friendly. Only mats to hit off of at the range. No on course beverage cart. Course conditions were not real good. Greens, tee boxes, and fairways could all use some tender care. Pace of play was OK. Very long from the red tees! My wife found course more manageable from the gold tees. Overall good value for the price we paid.

I always enjoy my time here. Plus 100 golfer(lol) course isn't to hard. Great fairways greens are fine. Got backed up after the first hole but picked up as round went on. Only request is to see the beer cart more often. 1 time in 18 holes(tee time 11) is not getting my round better. Will definitely be back again soon. Staff is great and knowledgeable

I never write reviews. However, I looked at the scathing assessments of the Ahwatukee CC. I called the club house for some level of encouragement. I was assured it was in “pretty good” shape. Clearly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you like slow play, thin, never true ball marked greens, lots of dust, expansive areas of burned up concrete like hard pan, rutted rough areas, damaged cart paths, this goat park is for you. It is very apparent there not been any kind of upgrade or modernization done to this track since it opened on 1974. It needs to be shut down and have a comprehensive course and club house renovation. No matter how cheap, say no and save your money. In 40 years of playing golf, I’m not sure I have ever seen such a pathetic excuse for a golf course. Very sad.

Someone turned off the water, and the greens look like they are spray-painted green. 75% of the tee boxes are terrible. The speed of play is far to slow and there was no Marshall to keep play moving. Very disappointed and won't be back. Truly a $20.00 per round course, providing you have 6 hours to play.
