I always enjoy playing this course. It is a great design and is very challenging. The greens were very good (fast and true). I found too many bare dirt lies in the middle of several fairways. They appear to be having trouble growing grass on several fairways despite heavy watering. I hope that they get the problems with the fairways corrected soon. They had new golf carts which was very nice. We played 18 holes in less than four hours.

My friends and I drove in for a golf weekend in the Phoenix area and the Foothills course was the lowlight of our trip. The fairways are in terrible shape, I know it is summer in Arizona, but they were by far the worst I have played this year. Some holes were really soggy and others were dry as a bone. The greens were in fairly good shape but everything else left us desiring more. I will never play this course again.

Tee boxes and greens were in very good shape. Fairways had a few burn spots, could use a little more water. Sand traps were atrocious, no sand in them, like hitting of hard pan. Overall though a good experience.

The course was amazing and the staff that I interacted with were very attentive and friendly. The tractor driver on the 3rd hole could have stopped and moved off to the side while we played through instead of continuing down the fairway right in our way though. Very nice layout and the best greens and tee boxes I have seen in the state. I look forward to playing here over and over again. The bag drop was nice and they wash your clubs after your round which is nice. All in all this is a 5* course. Wonderful practice facility as well.

This is a typical desert course with nice expanses of green and occasional water. Not exceptionally hard...but not easy.

It is now hot so having plenty of water is important and the course has water on almost, if not every, Tee Box. The hospitality cart driver was great, and came around frequently, which was nice for drinks and ice refill.

Front nine was slower than it needed to be because some Knuckle head was on his phone whie trying to hit a ball. Waiting on a twosome hole after hole watching this guy dig up the turf because he's missing the ball with his phone in his hand, Unbelievable. This is when they needed to have a Marshall. Thank goodness they must of stopped and had a break at 9, we got a head of them and had no wait. Also with the weather being hot it would be nice if there was a cart person coming around. I guess with the lower prices it's not feasable.

Went 2pm on a Friday. It was a holiday weekend so thought there may be a rush, but it was a hot day. I was looking for a quick round on some nice grass and it was delivered. P

I have played the course when it was busy and love the course. Always sucks waiting for other golfers but this course did a great job of organizing.

I long for the days when it was a tough decision to either play Foothills or Club West. There is no longer a decision to be made. Foothills, while in a great spot with a nice layout, is a sub-par golf course that doesn't live up to the greens fees. The fairways have little grass and what grass is there is uneven, spotty, and in poor condition. The greens are playable, but again, in below-average condition. The staff was friendly and overall very pleasant. Pace of play was a little sluggish, but that's to be expected on a Sunday morning. I'm not looking for lightning golf anyway. :-) Spend your hard-earned money elsewhere! Foothills used to be a nice gem - now it's a forgettable track with many other courses providing much better value.
