How long can you go without watering, Mr. Gee?

We've played Foothills for years. Always liked the layout, the challenging holes, etc.

But, since purchased by Mr. Gee, the course has lost its charm as the fairways and greens fall into disrepair. In fact, two holes have "temporary greens" as they "lost" two greens.

For the money we paid, this cattle track was what one would expect. Such a shame as it was a wonderful golf course for a long time.

Much under repair

A lot of ground under repair, and two temporary greens. Not a beginner course as errant shots are on desert terrain.

Nice course

This course has so much potential, but they are still trying to rebound from a few years of disastrous grass conditions. The layout is fun and challenging. The greens could use some work as some of them are burned out in places. I look forward to when they get this course back to its full glory.

Course has issues

Upkeep on the course needs to improve. Big patches in fairways and greens. 14th green moved temporarily which throws off GPS. I like this course and play it every so often and this is the worst shape I have ever seen it.

Great layout

Great Layout, poor condition all greens had bare spots . Two we’re almost lost , bare and white. Like salt or alkaline. . Sand traps were either dirt or mud. . Walls from neighboring subdivisions , paint peeling and in need of repair. HOA says Golf Course problem. Of course golf course says HOA problem. ( and were talking some million dollar homes)Weeds everywhere. Their reseed to Bermuda not taking well. In need of water.
People all very friendly. Will give it another try in a month or so. Hopefully grass will take better.

Fun course Teetimes are too close together, had to wait quite a while for the other groups to tee off and move ahead. Some greens and fairways worn

Staff and overall enjoyment are wonderful. I would be willing to pay a bit more to have teetimes farther apart

Sad

A solid well designed track that has been ignored by the owner for way too long. A number of greens are ravaged and missing grass, fairways are thin, and the traps (which make this course) are in below average shape making the tract not a very fun place to go play. Sad as in years past this was a top 10 course in the valley but it has been turned into a shadow of its prior self. Wish someone would buy it and bring it back to life.

Terrible Greens

This course is in pretty bad shape overall it looks like it’s on its last leg maybe going bankrupt. Many of the greens are diseased and they are not watering the course enough. I paid $35 w/cart and at that price it’s barely worth playing. It needs a lot of work!

Dry, hard greens and course facilities need TLC too.

Played here about 8 years ago and the course has seen better days. 3 or 4 greens were in poor shape, and all the greens were hard and dry. Course facilities are showing wear and tear. Fairways and tee boxes were good, and the people were friendly and courteous. I feel like the greenfees were about 20 dollars higher than the course condition warranted. I hope they invest in some facility improvements and improve the shape of the greens.

Great value, nice employees.

We are visiting from CO. Not sure what is normal here. The employees are great and the price was right. Fairways and greens we're very dry. Not sure I would have birdied the 16th without the square of dirt on the edge to roll through.

Absolute Incompetence

Theo course set up and conditions reflect a staff that neither cares about the course nor cares about the effort to fix what is obviously wrong.
The green on number 1 has a 6 foot by 4 foot section that has new strips of turf attempting to be sewn in - however, lack of proper care has caused the sewn strips to begin to die. Furthermore, the area is not marked by is relatively not playable.
Currently on hole 9 you can also view two 3 foot trenches which are not marked nor mentioned in the local rules
The 14th green is dirt, it is not over 100 degrees in the Phoenix valley and the grass is dying for lack of care.
Most of the greens have serious issues and the staff cuts the greens too short in respect to these issues. Several fairways have significant problems from a lack of care. A drive to the center of the fairway should not be punished with poor conditions, yet the staff at Foothills seems either oblivious or ignorant of the issues on the playing surfaces.
No greens on the course are flat, and all greens are extremely hard. Balls hit 120 feet in the air will still bounce and roll more than 30 feet from impact making even good shots at least a 1 stroke punishment due to conditions.
The set up of the course could overcome some of these if the staff cared enough to not set tee boxes in the most mounded areas available and put at least a third of the pins into reachable locations. Yet, the staff once agains seems to know very little bout course set up, turf managament, or general customer service. At the end of a tournament, which took even good (3 handicap) players 5 hours, all staff had gone home, locked the clubhouse, and players were not allowed to use the restrooms due to a private event taking place in the cafe.

Absolute poor attitude, worse execution of basic facility management. The course needs a change of attitude and a review by local PGA/USGA professionals for some of the playability concerns that have now fallen out of scope of the design.
