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.

Great value!!!! Several par 5s so a full course. We were able to get on early - 730amish. Course was not crowded at all. It looked like the course was being reseeded in a few places and the greens were a little sandy. All in all, a fun, challenging course for us.

We played here a few years ago and were disappointed with the overall condition of the course. Thought we would give it another try but we’re once again disappointed with the condition. Example: hit a drive right down the middle of the fairway only to find the ball came to rest on hard barren dirt IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FAIRWAY. Try using some water. Greens were in ok shape with a few exceptions. Don’t believe I will be back any time soon even for the low greens fee.

Not going to lie, this won't be the nicest course you've ever played, but you'll still enjoy it. The layout of the holes is fun, but challenging. Decent food at the proshop kitchen, easy access between the back and front 9... and you will only pay $10-$20 per golfer in the summer. Like I said, the course isnt in the best condition, but you won't find anything cheaper! One of my top 3 favorite courses in Arizona!!!!

This is I nice little (short) track that clearly lacks the financial resources to keep it in good shape...but I’ll give them credit they’ve kept the fairways and greens playable as the temperature has risen. It’s good value for the money which contributes to the number and types of players it attracts...expect a slow round

The course was in ok shape. But the pace of play was very very slow. And the group of golfers ahead wouldn't even let you play through. Players kept playing on the greens after they finished the hole. Hitting second shots and messing around.

The majority of course was in good shape with only a few areas around a few greens overgrown with weeds. Approach shots held the green, putts rolled and fairways were in good shape. Course was not PGA ready but did not expect it at the rate. Staff in the shop and on the course were amazing. Will be back.

When you first arrive, the driving range tees are on mats, but have no place to tee up a ball to use a driver. The course has a great layout, but is poorly maintained. The fairways were comparable to most rough areas and the rough was almost non existent except for weeds and crabgrass. The Greens were a checkerboard of grass and sand patches which made them impossible to read and distorted the roll of the ball. The bunkers lacked sand and when played out of left mud attached to your ball.

This is unlike any Country Cub I have ever played.

Interesting course, fairly easy but the wind made it more challenging. Considering how cheap it was the course was in good condition. We enjoyed it, but bunkers were awful. SO AVOID THEM!! THe birds appearing around the course were really beautiful too.

If you are looking for a round of golf on a D level course this is the place. The greens are horrible lots of burnt out areas .There are some greens that the mower hydrolic lines had broken and they were still used to cut greens while they spread fluid all over greens. That tells you all you have to know about course maitanance Save your money don't play there go else were send them a message maybe they will take pride in there course .

Will not play again. Staff was rude. We arrived 1 hr early and the cart staff said we should be able to get off early. Went in to the pro shop to get a small bucket of range balls to split amoung the 4 of us. Told the starter we would be ready in 10 min. He said he was in charge not the cart boy and it was their policies that people who paid in advance would not start early. We went to the putting green that was nothing but sand and gravel. 2 of our group walked over to stand in the shade by the first tee. The starter anounced over the loud speaker that he had not called anyone to the tee box and we should move off the tee. We did and waited another 10 min before the starter called us to the tee. Overall the course was dry and dying. One would have thought it was Aug. rather that Apr. Tee boxes were pea gravel and sand. Greens had large dead patches in them. We were not made to feel welcome. Will not be back. Can not recommed at all.

This is a nice place to get in a good round of golf. It's not overly challenging, but a fun experience. The greens are always in bad shape. This time, the pace was exceedingly slow -- almost a 6-hour round. They need to a marshal out there to keep people moving. I still enjoy playing here, but will be cutting back during the summer when I can get on better courses for the same money.
