Challenging

If the course had a yardage book it would certainly help. Being it was the first time playing for our whole group we had no knowledge of the course layout or the best place to hit your ball, especially the tee shouts.

Play it for sure

Great all around course. Friendly staff, first 3 holes open, then wide fairways through residential before the ending desert holes through hills with the 18th having a fantastic view of Phoenix and surrounding area. A must play course. Only negative is their warmup/practice area. Just a net, carpet pads with no toes, shabby.

Nice Track

Very interesting course. Front is open with water around for errant shots. The Back is much more scenic and a little tighter. Although I didn't hit an bunkers my playing partners did and complained about the large stones in the bunkers.

The course was in good shape. The Greens were just about the perfect speed but there wasn't a straight putt on any of the greens we played. Hard to read but fair.

Yes I would play this course again.

Five hours !

Loved the course first two times I played it..... two distinctly different nines. But..... a five hour round, turns any good course, into a real piece of work. Guys we were playing with, were really bummed, I’m from Canada where it’s snowing.... I had fun, but still an hour too long.

Arizona Grand 2019

I have played this course for the last 4 years that I have come Down here for a winter break. It has always been in very good shape and the layout is lots of fun. Had my best round during this stay today! Pace was quite slow though had a very in experienced 4 some in front and the round turned into close to 5 hrs

Course is in great shape. Tee boxes are tricky as there are no markers on the cart path. A rock painted the color of the tee box would be great. Also as a first time player better signage as to the location of the next tee would be helpful.... there are lots of forks in the path??? Last thing which is a tad weird, nine and 18 dont end at the club house. So dont expect a snack and bathroom break at the turn. To get back to the clubhouse after 18 you have to drive back about 3 holes. They did have a beverage cart however. No womens wear in the pro shop and no one takes your clubs to the front of the resort for pick up.

Nice course. Nice location

Great course. Excellent setting at Arizona Grand Resort with excellent amenities. Front nine a little noisy as it is bordered a busy freeway/streets, but back nine very picturesque winding around South Mountain. Course is not too long and good for recreational golfer.

Great views but some LOUSY HOLES

Several of the holes are just down right awful. From a friendly staff I was instructed on 4th hole to play the ball to the right away from the water due to the slope of the fairway. I took this advice on this and several other holes, but even with the advice and a good shot, the ball still rolled into the pond/water OB. The design of these holes was so bad that a reasonably good golfer still has trouble scoring. That combined with cart path only and a paranoia of frost that delayed the tee times nearly 45 minutes 3 days in a row, make this course very Undesirable in my mind. The really nice staff and few holes that offer great city views don't overcome the start of the course. Most persons complain about "target" golf, but that doesn't bother me. I expected typical desert golf, but this layout goes beyond this on several holes, making the entire round not worth it. I played Legacy, and Lookout Mountain Courses while here and would definitely recommend both of those courses before I would even consider playing here again.

awesome course to play

Perfect conditions both with the fairways and the greens. A lot of narrow landing areas on the fairways and elevated greens to hit into. Low handicap golfers will love the challenge but it may be too though for the high handicapper. Greens were usually sloped and very fast so proper ball position is important. Love the round and will certainly play it again!

Better Courses to play in Arizona

Avid golfer, Spend 1 week vacations in Phoenix area 2-3 times a year always play different courses to get a favorites list. The Grand doesn't make the list. Not that it's a horrible course but nothing about it makes me want to play it again. Course was in decent shape, best part about it was the greens (very good shape I thought). I didn't care for the course layout, bunkers had rock pebbles in them, and 5+ hour round. I was excited that the tee time purchased included range balls, Showed up early to get a few swings in felt like I was back in college preparing for baseball game the range consisted of what look like a batting cage with five or six stations to hit from and 50 or 60 balls laying in the cage. . Practice green was a postage stamp with three holes. Price was good, looks great when you drive up, but alI down hill for me after that. There are better places to play in the area.
