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.

Don’t hit driver on the back nine

Back nine is way harder than the front, due to blind tee shots. Play to the yardage markers on the fairway, skip the driver. Greens are great shape. Bare spots in some places in the fairway. Needs more yardage markers and signage.

Fast Play/Fun Day

Course is in good shape for mid July. Several fairways we're sun stressed with grass very thin. Likewise, several greens had bare spots. In spite of this, the course played well and was thoroughly enjoyable. Playing time was less than four hours. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Good grass

Course was in good shape. Very few light or burned patches. Fairways and greens were good. Traps could use more actual sand. The back nine greens need leveling. But good round, friendly staff, great pace of play.

Abysmal Pace

I have used GolfNow for years but have never felt the need to write a review...until now.

My first experience at Arizona Grand has left much to be desired. Driving into the resort/course, it is difficult to navigate. There are multiple signs for where to find a Lift/Uber but it is unclear as where the bag drop/clubhouse is. The parking lot has resort vehicles blocking aisles and turns, making it congested and tight to turn around in.

The practice facilities are also in rough shape. There is no driving range and the practice green is tiny with as much dirt/sand as grass. They do have a net to hit practice balls in, but no rubber tees for the mats and large holes in the net.

However the reason I am writing a review is due to the pace of play. We teed off about 7 minutes late (not a big deal alone), but by the time we made the turn and 10 cleared to hit it was a 2:45 front 9. We happened to see a marshal and explained we were frustrated with the slow play. He indicated that he was aware of the problem but there was nothing he could do. Technically, the back nine did pick up, we finished that in 2:35 for a 5:20 minute round. The course etiquette from the bachelor party that ended up playing part of the back 9 as a 6 some is hardly even factored into this poor experience.

They have 8 minute spacing between tee times on a course with many blind tee shots. Arizona Grand needs to space times out to 10 or 12 minutes and have effective marshals.

Beware if you decide to play, overall one of my most unpleasant golfing experiences.

Good Views - Fair Course Condition

Greens were spotted in parts and tee boxes a bit worn. Fairways were decent a bright green. Views can't be beat. Coyote on hole # 13 was a treat and no danger to anyone. bring water and food since hole #9 does not return to the clubhouse

EVERY HOLE IS DIFFERENT

Best bargain for golf! Every hole presents a different challenge you have shot from on top of a mountain dog legs left and right wide open fairways And the greens are very responsive and well groomed. There are beautiful water holes and great photo opportunities. Staff is very friendly. The food is delicious. It's my favorite golf course in Arizona for the past 6 years.

Grand Play Improvement

Nice course but has multiple blind shots. Hole tee markers do exist. Tee box markers are all white no matter which position you want to play from. Make sure you have some type of gps system to determine yardages. Not my first choice to play in Phoenix market.

Decent course for the money

Overall good layout. Some blind tee shots, greens rolled pretty fair. Pace okay. Cart girls were exceptional, a little slow to get us out of the gate. Couldn't get the person who works the desk to figure out how to charge a couple of sale items in the pro shop, gave up. Very rude waitress in the restaurant/ bar. Overall for the money on hot deal woth the play.
