The Arizona Grand Resort boasts a challenging golf course, blending desert target golf with traditional links, playing par-71 over 6,336 yards, closing on an island-green 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.

Tough course and tests your abilities as a golfer. Fairways were okay but I didn't care for the greens. For the money spent I expected better. However this course should be played at least once...

Everything about our experience was a disappointment . We teed off 30 minutes after our scheduled tee time due to overcrowding on the course. The course has no practice facility , the conditioning was terrible , the layout was very disappointing (particularly the first 5 holes and the second nine holes) with several holes poorly conceived and designed, with insufficient landing zones and “Mickey mouse “ features. And to cap everything, the pace of play was terrible! After being at the course five hours from our initial tee time and only completing 15 holes, we had enough aggravation and drove off the course. I will never go to this place again!

Very nice course, Challenging and fun to play.

Very poor conditions for the price, pace of play was good. staff and amenities are great!

Again Very disappointed in conditions. Fairways were patchy and greens are torn up pretty good.

I will give it another try later in the year.

Lots of "cancer" spots due to lack of watering (although they used a lack of water for the reason, although the other courses in the area were fine). No yardage markers that could be found. Few directions to the next tee box. Confusion with the starter with tee times, etc.. Just not a good experience with a course and resort that could have made it great.

The views are great, but the fairways and greens are crying for attention. The greens were sandy and didn't roll well. The fairways needed water and seed. We hit off of dirt in the fairway more than grass. In order to keep carts off of the fairways, most were marked with rope so that it was really cartpath only. That made for a longer round of golf and the pace of play was slow to begin with. I don't think I will be back until they fix these issues.

Average resort course at best. Just a touch over $100 for a Saturday 10am tee time. Course lacks a decent range, old range is still there just not open, not sure why as its ztill right by the parking lot. Hitting into a net off a mat with no way to pick up balls, no bad rubber tee and in an off location with no staff present is a poor representation of what a great resort course used to be... the place seems to be living off past success. Course was in below average condition with many holes path only...fairways at many other valley courses in far better shape and the greens were mostly terrible with no consistency in speed and roll. If youre going to spend this type of money for an average course go to Wild Horse pass or any other valley course, dont waste your time here

Course is nice. Pace of play is a little slow.

Practice cages are very poor. Mats have no rubber tees, have to gather up practice balls by hand, ie: nothing to pick up practice balls with (not even a rake, etc.). Have to pick up by hand to get balls to practice with.

A lot of the fairways are roped off, not allowing power carts. This slows play.

But one of our favourite courses in the Valley for the price.

We have a conference at the Arizona Grand every year, so we've played this course a few times - always very enjoyable. The pace of play can be slow at times, but it does seem to pick up a little on the back 9. Would be nice if tee times were spread out a little better, and would love to see some improvements to the practice "cage", but overall not a bad place to play. Love the weather!!

We tee’d off at 7:52AM the Friday that the WM Open was in town. My other 3 players were a bit hung over but now I get why this was the earliest tee time available. Course was in good shape but I’m from Maryland so there that. Bunkers were kept well with mostly sand. Some dry spots on fairways but not bad. Tee boxes were nice. The price was a bit steep but it’s the Phoenix Open so there’s that factor. I’d go back as it was close to ASU and the Moxy hotel.
