Type Resort
The course at the Orange Tree Golf Resort provides an excellent game of golf in a luxurious setting. The Parkland-style layout features fairways lined with mature trees, which not only enhance the natural beauty of the golf course but can also greatly affect shots. Four lakes are situated on the flat terrain of the course, providing water hazards that come into play on five holes. Sand bunkers also surround every green. Orange Tree Golf Resort's course finishes with its signature hole, where water cuts into the fairway and proceeds to run down the left side all the way to the green. It also requires accuracy on the approach shot in order to hit the small putting surface that is surrounded by tricky elements.

One of my favorite courses.

Orange Tree is always a consistently good course. It's one of my top three choices when we're in Scottsdale.

Course Needs Help

The course was in really tough shape. This could be mostly due to the storms, or the summer season but the price tag should represent the course conditions.

Most of the tee boxes have sporadic crab grass. The fairways were very patchy (season and weather contribute to this, no fault of the course). Rough and surrounding areas weren't kept up very well (although weather has an impact, the grounds crew should at least try and clean up a bit). Greens were decent, a little long and slow but rolled true (grounds crew were punching new pin placements on the green as we were putting, never seen that before). Bunkers were compact (probably due to storms).

I usually like this course but attention to the smaller details would go a long way for the current price tag. The grounds crew should be advised to pick up trash as they see it on the course. Maybe explain to them again what the flag colors mean when punching new pin placements (also wait until players are off the green).

Waste of money

I have played here since 2002. This is the worst I’ve ever seen the course. Trees are over grown everywhere. The grass was so spotty we would laugh and comment when we would see a good spot of grass. Weeds out of control. One tee box look liked I was teeing off in a weed test zone. It was horrible. Simply put I was not impressed.

Great Course

Orange Tree is a nice little course. The summer excessive heat has taken it toll on the whole course which is totslly understandable. The greens were slow, fairways decent, sand traps (too many for my liking) were actually pretty nice. Over all this course is well worth playing.

Sloppy

Played early on a Sunday. The course had standing water and puddles on almost every hole. My playing partner and I both lost golf balls in the middle of the fairway buried in the muck. The greens were the slowest I have played in a long time. I know they are transitioning to bermuda for the summer, but so is every other course in the area and they aren´t this bad.

Play was slow, player assistance only seen on 2nd hole and never again.

Fairways poor, greens marginal. Overall poor course maintenance.

Not bad — Not good

Course was in ok condition for the price but the greens were overall very slow. However more than anything they were inconsistent. Also fairways were half dirt and half grass. Played this course in the fall and it was like I played a different course.
