Type Resort
The Arizona Grand Resort (formerly known as Phantom Horse Golf Club) boasts a challenging golf course, blending desert target golf with traditional links, playing par-71 over 6,336 yards, and a 7,000-square-foot practice green with a bunker and chipping area for a pre-round tune-up. After a round at Arizona Grand Resort, head to an onsite drinking or dining spot: there's Mexican food, and then there's Southwestern dancing, and then there's a sports bar so you can catch up with someone else's game indoors or outdoors on the patio. The Arizona Grand Resort also offers several packages, ranging from stay-and-play to family deals to getaways for women to romantic suite packages, complete with breakfast in bed.

I like the course layout The condition of the course is better than usual. The fairways have a few bare spots but greens were firm and in pretty good shape.

Arizona Grand Golf Outing

Arizona Grand Golf Course is a beautiful and fun course. Elevation changes are the norm, but holes are not too long. Iron shots are the key to success. Greens were in great shape and challenging to put. I would definitely play this course again. Views of the desert and city of Phoenix are very special!

Arizona Grand Golf

The greens were in good condition although were not consistent speeds from one hole to the next. There are several blind holes where the green is out of view. Some fairways are very narrow and require an accurate tee shot. The first five holes were cart path only and because of the hilly nature of these holes, I would not recommend this course to anyone who struggles with walking. We finished 18 in just under 4 hours and found the pace of play excellent.

Good value

Paid $39 per player; would still be good value at $60. Not a premier course in the valley, but nevertheless a decent course. The first 5 holes, and that last 6 or 7 holes makes for a fun track. Conditions were OK for this time of year, I’ve seen far worse on other courses.

Good track to play on

A little difficult navigating around to find the Pro shop, however the staff was very accommodating in helping us out. A couple of the holes were still wet from heavy rains and shortened to par 3's. Still a well groomed course. Could tell it was older than some of the other courses we played. Still quite enjoyable.

Very Disappointed

I was aware that the course was cart path only. No where on the web site was mention made of 3 holes under major construction. The course was very poorly marked. The first hole was very confusing with no signs of direction at all. Very poor, I would not play here again.

Nice condition but..

Course was in great condition but they didn’t tell you 2 or 3 of the holes were changed from par 5’s, and a couple par 4’s to short par 3’s. Playing as a par 68-69 in reality.

Great course layout

The course has a great variety of holes and has gorgeous views. The only issue was the pro shop cashier was extremely rude. He mumbled his words and when asked to repeat himself gave an attitude. Very unprofessional and needs a lesson in customer service big time.

Lack of communication...

Great layout, friendly staff and another blue bird Phoenix day would have been enjoyed had there been better communication from the booking app and golf course when I spoke to them. No mention that the course was cart path only, that two of the holes had to be shortened due to flooding or the fact that they overbooked. Add in a 40min delay to our start time, things could only get better. 5 hours to play 14 holes is a little excessive in my opinion...

All that aside, a replay is in order once the overseeding drama is done.

Arizona Grand Golf and Resort

Have played this course many times and up until today had always been very good to play. Grant it alot of other courses are in the process of re seeding and letting the courses change over. Over booking is not to the delight of any golfer or helps to pace of play. This seems to be a norm for this course and they dont seem to adhere to why players want a comfortable pace of play. Course is great when its healthy but right now the dry conditions are not worth the hassles.
