Very nice! Greens were 8-10 on the stimp! Lot's of roll out past the hole on most putts! Fairways were nice! A little thin, but lushy nonetheless. Rough areas are dry, but that's expected this time of year; winter dormant grasses + water conservation. First time on the Pine! Played sister course Palm 4-6 x's already.

Love the green elevation changes & undulations! Well bunkered too! Fair but challenging layout! Lot's of doglegs make for numerous tee shot choices!

Repeat visit in the works!

Greens rolled true but were spotted up with ball marks. Fairways in decent shape. Rough was dormant bermuda but price reflected these facts. Decent layout. Saw a couple bald eagles in a tree on the 4th hole so that was cool.

Our whole group enjoyed the round. The pace of play was good, busy but not horrible. We waited on a few shots but overall things went smooth. I think we finished in about 4:15 or so. The course was in good shape, except it seems no one who plays here knows how to fix their ball marks on the green. Several of the greens had taken a beating although the pin placements made it so these did not interfere with my putts. We saw the cart girl once between holes 3 & 4 and not again until the 16th. Seems like it should be more frequent, especially on a Saturday. We were thirsty! Other than that, a great round on the Pine course that I look forward to playing again.

Spotty rough. Fairways grown a bit long. Greens pretty good. Not a great course, looks like the superintendent just doesn’t have the budget, but a decent play at $40-45.

Old parkland-style tree-lined course, a rarity in the Scottsdale area. Greens are very small and have a lot of undulation, and many tee shots require a well-shaped tee shot, not just a straight one. The first hole is terrible, requires a 30-50 yard fade just to hit the fairway. Remove a few trees and it would be playable.

Conditions were good, not great. Greens are pretty good speed, just a ton of ball marks on them. Tee boxes were pretty beat up, everything else was good.

I have played this course several times. In my view it is a terrific, nuanced golf course. It was built in the '70's I believe and you can see these architectural nuances all over the place - From the small greens to the location of the bunkering and the positioning of the water hazards. The fair ways are generous and greens are a bit slow but very fair and readable.

I would recommend this course highly and it is in a great location in central Scottsdale. I have taken a few of my friends there - we are all snowbirds from Canada - and everyone has enjoyed their golf experience there and will all come back again.

The course was in beautiful condition.

Numerous ball markings on the greens

were indicative of a class of golfers insensitive to proper green care.

There are lots of courses to choose from in the area. I had never played this course before and I did not have high expectations as I knew it was an older city course. There is no doubt it would have been a great course in its day, but there are many higher tier courses to choose from. If the price is right then this is a good choice. I would suggest not paying more than $50 for a round here as there are many other options that would provide a better course and therefore better golfing experience.
