The worse condition I have seen in the 25 years I've lived in the area. Greens have not been maintained. Grainy and bumpy. Many bare spots on the course. I understand this isn't a top end course but you can play many other courses in the area that are in much better condition for the same price. The staff is friendly and accommodating.

greens were not in the best of shape, inconsistent and well maintained. Definite lack of ball washers and some that were there didn't work well or were broken. Fairways and tee boxes good. There was a mix up in getting people out, someone didn't show up on time. Our tee time was delayed and we waited at almost every hole Over 4 hours to play 16 holes, couldn't finish the round because we started 15 minutes late.

Pretty decent track. We played during WM Open, so maybe it was busier than usual. The marshalls were out there pushing people along, so that's good as well. It's not a super lush course, but pretty decent, and challenging enough. Depends what you're used to playing

Stayed away from these 4 (Club West, The Duke and Ahwatukee CC) properties the past few years since they've all gone into the dumper. Understood there was an ownership/management change and things were on the way up. Was told last week that this place was in pretty good shape. It's not!

Fairways Ok.

Most greens had multiple dead spots.

Greens had multiple previous 'hole cuts" protruding enough to alter your putt.

Very thin lies off the fairway.

No ball washers.

Bunkers had a zillion rocks in 'em.

Stay away if you're smart.

First timers around this course are going to find the placement of bunkers inconvenient. Though it is not a nightmare after a once through, the lack of knowledge of bunker placements and the edges of greens and fairways are going to make scoring a challenge the first time around; they are just not evident when you survey the hole from the tee box and from certain approach angles. That said, the course was in good shape. The greens were very fast the day I played, but they were consistent. They lost speed, obviously, as the shadows grew and the temps dropped into the late afternoon. I'll be playing this course again.
