Greens a little slower than some of the other courses we played in the area but in good condition.

Pace could have been a little better. We caught up to a single player and played as a 5 some on the back nine and had no trouble keeping up with 4 somes in front. Never saw a marshall on the course.

Prepaid green fees for my wife and myself however the day before RT off time I received a notice of cancellation! I called the club and was told that my time of 944 was blocked off and would he move back to 950. No problem as we were only a twosome and we would be booked with another twosome, again no problem! When we got to the clubhouse we were told that if we wanted to play at 9:50 I would have to pay for three other times as there was a group of 12 players who were booked, meanwhile I had booked a week ahead for a time. When we rushed down to the starter he very fortunately got us to tee off ahead of the three other foursomes so that we could catch up to the Twosome we were originally to be played with. Naturally we were then rushed with 12 players waiting for us to tee off and it was a very uncomfortable experience with the 12 players wanting their beer which is understandable. After the second hole it was a great round no problems on course it's great it was just the young guy in the golf club who was obviously overwhelmed with the stress of handling a busy day? Perhaps the first or second day on the job is all I can think of!

My son and I like to explore the valley and try different courses. Picked this one and enjoyed the course very much. Traditional desert course, keep it in the fairway, stay out of the rough and desert. The rough was short but very gnarly to hit out of. Course was overseed about 2 weeks before, but fairways were in good shape. Practice green was super slow, but the course greens rolled good and were average speed, not lightning fast for sure.

The over seeding job was well done.

This course challenges you with a number of interesting holes with changing elevations. I recommend it as it makes you use just about every club in your bag.

Booked The Foothills Golf course through GolfNow at a ‘hot deal’. Did not expect the amenities (washrooms, water stations, ball wash stands) or the good condition of the greens with such a low cost. Great value and lovely day of golf. We really lucked out with the weather, company and course condition.

Course was in good condition. Fresh grass after seeding. Rough was a little thick and I unfortunately spent some time in it. Greens were a little slow, but in great condition. Course was busy, pace of play was a little slow but not too bad for a holiday weekend.

We thought the course was ok. Only because they are in the middle of overseeding. We expect that this time of year so it was not that big a deal. Greens were slow and fairways could have been mowed. But again we expect all of that this time of year.
