Played there many time because of the location. Depending on the time of year it can be a bit of slow play, especially on the weekends. This round it was wide open and me and my partner played through quickly and one of our better rounds.

The course is in really bad shape. Grass is very thin can’t distinguish the fairway from the rough. Play was fast. One thing to note is tons of range balls all over the course. Especially holes 1 and 9. Almost got hit walking up the ninth hole by an errant range ball.

Got to 5th green when hail, rain, wind, thunder, and lightening came and stayed for an hour. This course is not well drained and the grass is long, so it was ruined for the day and we were soaked before returning to the club house.

This course does not offer rain checks, so we were unable to recover our excessive fees for the day. $33 fees on this course, tho GolfNow didn’t charge a booking fee, is way too much for this poorly kept goat track. We play it because it is otherwise convenient.

Dry, poorly kept greens. Weeds on edge of greens, such as 11, make putt or chip a no win situation. Weird layout parallels front and back nine around 2 and 15 hard to tell which hole is next. Poor sign markings. Nearly all ball washers dry , damaged or missing. Poor conditions on many tee boxes. Snack bar always seems to be closed. Needs overhaul. Don’t worry about missing the fairway on most par 4’s, it will just roll across dry dirt for the length of the hole. Only good things are middle of north Phoenix access and price and practice greens.

Two months ago this course was very brown & dry. If it had been over-seeded in the winter, the seed did not germinate well. The Bermuda grass is now greening and the fairways are much improved; greens are fair at best.

An ok course for the money. The greens were hard. Back nine was fun with the long par 3’s. We played right after a couple of windy days in the city. So there was lots of leaves and debris scattered everywhere. In the past this course is nice in the season. If you love to play golf for the sake of the game. Then this course will be good for you.
