Played this course for the first time on 1/17/18. Fairways were in excellent shape and greens were running fast and true. Course winds through a pleasant neighborhood. We were following a slower foursome. Marshal was helpful and advised us to jump ahead of them at the turn. Cart girl was friendly. This is not the swankiest club around, but the course was very playable and in excellent condition. And at $50 it was a good value. I would happily play it again at that price.

Some reviews show long long times to play. Our 4-some done in 4:15 and I played with 3 high handicappers. You will not be blown away by course and surrounding aesthetics, challenge, etc. But for the price and ease of location to where I was staying it was a very fair price for the round.

I've played Orange Tree Golf Resort in Scottsdale many times in the past but this was the first time in several years. The course was in perfect condition. The greens were moderate speed and running smooth. Although the course was very busy, pace of play was under 4 hours for our foursome. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I will play Orange Tree again in the near future. It's a great value for the money in the heart of Scottsdale.

Pace was near ridiculous. All groups of four backed up all day. Tees off shortly after 1:00 pm and only got 15 holes in. Course in great shape but very flat. Typical Arcadia area layout. Partnered with players who take long time to tee up. Talked during swings and putts. Had to to put in ear plugs ( not connected to anything) to get some quiet.

After playing mostly desert courses in the area it was different playing a parkland type course. The fairways were quite nice, but if you missed the fairway you were usually hitting off of dirt in the rough. I guess it is similar to hitting off the desert if you miss the fairway on a desert course. The greens were pretty nice - just a touch slower than what I am used to. All in all it was a good experience.

Fairways good shape . Greens rolling true. Just enough hazard to make it interesting. Fairways are wide enough , but need to hit reasonably straight. Our companions lost a few OB.

The fairways were green, greens were ok. Plenty of room to miss. The only little negative is that each hole seemed to be the same type of hole. Not much difference in par 4 holes.

perfect strangers- we had a great round. Had to wait on a few holes, but not for long. I brought a friend who had not played the course and she was very impressed with the whole experience.

I have played Orange Tree before and enjoyed it. The course is very forgiving off the tee, traps are well manicured, and greens are good.

This day ( two days after Christmas ) it was booked solid and excruciatingly slow.

This is not the norm.

Orange Tree is a nice facility.

We always enjoy Orange Trees' park-like design as a change-up from our desert-style courses. We've played it twice since overseeding and they keep the fairways so wet that they border on muddy. You're hitting a muddy ball a lot. Greens are good. They're lacking distances on all but very few sprinkler heads (or they're covered with water or mud) and the carts aren't GPS. This slows play. 150 yard markers are +/- 10 yards. Range is pretty beat up. Outside staff very good.
