Slow play killed the round

Extremely slow play with tee time prior to 9 AM. We were unable to play the back 9. Starter was nice guy and let us play the front nine twice just to get 18 done in less than 5 1/2 hours. 3- 4 groups on several holes. No ranger, no cart beverages. Embarrassing that I brought a guest.

You get what you pay for.

Great golfing value

I've always liked this course. Fairways and greens do have a few bare areas but that's to be expected this time of year. Great value!

Certainly not the best in the area...

I only live a mile from Foothills, so it’s really just the convenience factor playing there. But I believe if Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish would return today to this course they designed 30 years ago they’d be very disappointed in its condition...unless you like putting on greens that are slower than shag carpeting. Is $25 the right price to play here? Maybe, if they throw in a bucket of balls - the range balls are actually decent - and maybe a Kiltlifter after the round.

Foothills Aug09

Overall the course was in decent shape. The greens were a bit inconsistent, some very slow others a bit faster. They did not roll true most of the time. Another week and they should be in better shape.

The sand traps were very wet due to over night rain but they tend to not be in great shape at any time

Will play it again.
