Needs work

The staff is very good but it’s obvious the maintenance budget has been cut. Course is in poor condition—tees, greens, traps and fairways. Too bad because the course has potential.

Where's the sand?

I love the layout and elevation changes, but the course needs some TLC. The traps need sand and many of the greens are in very bad shape. They also need a ranger out helping groups keep pace. Our group was more than a hole behind (due to the twosome we we're paired with never seeing a fairway) and no one ever came out to move us along. The group behind us must have been very frustrated.

sort of ok

Lovely setting with some nice views, no tees or pencil in cart, some of the fairways were in poor condition and a couple of the green were in very poor condition, all were slowish with plenty of unrepaired pitch marks and bare areas. Have played on better for the price.

Nice return visit!

I returned after 6 years to play this course again. A couple greens need some work but otherwise course is in good shape. I really enjoy the layout and variation of holes throughout the round. Will definitely be back before another 6 years.

Tee boxes and fairways were in good condition. Greens were horrible. Rough, bouncy and some had no grass. Not a good value for the money, Would not recommend.

A little rough

Tee boxes and greens were a little rough, pace of play wasn't bad. With golf prices the way they are this course would be a descent play for under $50.00

Foothills - Phoenix Review

Course was not in the greatest of shapes. Played with a person who had played a few weeks ago and he said the course was better then. There were patches of dirt in the roughs and some of the greens were patchy as far as grass goes. Made it more difficult to putt. Would not recommend a friend until the course conditions improve. Also there were workers with tractors close to the 9th hole.

HUMILIATED

My frustration is directed at the starter on duty the day we played. My group purchased range balls and we were directed to pick them up from the starter. We went to the range to hit them and apparently we went to the wrong tee box. The starter came out to the tee and scolded us like we were insubordinate children and was relentless in reprimanding us in spite of us apologizing to him.

The first impression of a course is the staff that greets you at the door and sets the mood for the round and makes you feel welcome or not.

We made an error in not understanding which tees to hit from and he made an error in humiliating four old guys that wont be back to play golf at your golf course.

Boring & Slow

Best part of the court was the Starter. Friendly guy. Good conversation.

Otherwise,, pace was 4:40. Never saw a Ranger. Rocks in green side bunkers.

Greens choppy. 15 was a mess. Had to play "2 putt max" here. Why put flag on 15 amidst the multiple bare areas on this green? Think about what you're doing.

Don't recommend. Better choices around.

Above average

Fairways in great shape. A couple of greens have some bare spots. Not a good course for beginners as anything off the fairway or the small amount of rough carries substantial penalty. No tall grass to speak so any errant shots are exaggerated.

Nothing’s Changed

This used to be my home course when I lived 2 miles from it. That was 22 years ago. Instead of improving it has gone downhill. The course was in poor shape as the fairways were rock hard and the rough was terrible. A little course maintenance would go a long way in increasing the enjoyment of this course. The greens were patchy and hard. All in all, I wish I had foregone my nostalgic urge to return to this course and spent an extra $20 to play a much nicer course.

All right course. Needs some work

Greens and bunkers need some work. The greens are bumpy and a little slow. The plentiful bunkers need sand especially those around the greens where you should be blasting out not trying to nip the ball off hardpan. The course layout is good and pleasing to the eye. It has a good variation of holes. The fairways are green and the dormant Bermuda rough was very playable; however, on some fairways and greens there are areas of exposed dirt.

Generally an OK course, I just wish they put some effort into getting the greens into better shape.

Not in the best shape

The greens were hard to putt on since they were very bumpy due to uneven grass. There were some VERY thin places on the greens and fairways. The course should have been in better shape for this time of year and the price they are asking.
