I played the tips at a little over 6,900...shot an 83 ... was in the 2nd group off that day at 5:28 a.m... rarely saw the group ahead after the 1st hole ... the guys loading & unloading the bags were spot on and extremely nice ... the starter who also was selling drinks, was extremely nice and attentive... the course setup is good ... coursse condition overall was good... I happen to like greens that are fast and without grain so the grains, which though in very good shape, do clearly have significant grain and were running 8 or 9 ... but overall, a very nice experience... will definitely play again

We enjoyed playing at the Foothills today. The condition of the course was good considering the summer heat. The fairways and greens were well kept. I'm playing there again tomorrow and will play there again in the coming days.

I have played Foothills a lot. It has been awhile but it was in good shape. I took a friend who had never played the course. He enjoyed it and was very complimentary of the greens which ran well but fast. It is a nice layout and has some nice views of South Mountain.

The old adage, you get what you pay for holds true at Foothills. First off, I've always liked the course layout at Foothills. I also realize summers are brutal here, but there doesn't seem to be much effort to keep the fairways somewhat green with grass throughout. Too many burned out patches in the middle of the fairway, which felt like we were hitting off of concrete. Bunkers were also not well maintained, where you were better off chipping out than hitting a sand shot. The greens were in fairly good shape, but somewhat slow. The best thing about Foothills at this time is the price.

Me and my buddy had a 9:44 AM tee time & weren’t able to finish our round because of how backed up it got on the course. Additionally, when it’s 100 degrees outside the extra few hours of being out there start to take a toll on your body which resulted in a tiresome experience.

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.
