Greens on back nine were in terrible shape. There were a couple actually closed and temporary greens were being used.
There should be some warning about these conditions so you don’t waste your money.

Arizona Heat

Very good layout had three very small temporary greens that wasn’t worth putting on. I still enjoyed playing this course and please remember the heat in Arizona this time of the year is brutal to the fairways and greens so I do understand why this course wasn’t in tip top shape. Very scenic surrounded by beautiful mountains. People friendly and a very good sale on golf shirts 49% off.

It really is a nice course with some pretty cool views. Staff is great and the value is probably the best in the valley. Summer time is hard to find grass in great condition so I was very happy with our round today. Thank you- and it was good to see staff out working On the course. Worth the drive, hands down!

Low Price, Spotty Course Conditions

This course has a lot of potential, as it's set up well and has beautiful surroundings. The course itself wasn't in good shape. The price was low, so we got what we paid for. I hope the course repairs finish up by the time the cooler weather season comes back around as I enjoy this course in general.

Nice course!

This golf course was fun and mildly challenging. There are some summer course repairs and maintenance spots but that didn’t detract from the play too much. I’ll play this course again.

Okay day

First time playing this course and had difficult time finding the place. Listing the positives first, the staff was very friendly and helpful, plenty of cold water on the course, wide fairways. The negatives, golf carts not so good, dry course lots of brown spots, greens were rough and several temporary greens. Probably will play this course again but in the late fall or early spring when it’s cooler and wetter. Good luck.

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.
