Starfire golf outing

Cart path only made it difficult for us due to health limitations... also king course being closed made the outing less fun but we were led to believe thus was only temporary...

18 holes - Mulligan & Hawk

Signed up through GolfNow. Course had us commit to 2 separate 9 holes. We were not told on website that the 1st Nine holes (Mulligan) was only an executive type layout. Very disappointing!

Thank you for this information. We will contact GolfNow and have this clarified on their booking site. Overseeding will be completed in a couple of weeks, The King - 18 hole par 70 will be open then and we hope to see you back soon.

Avoid this course

after waiting 20 min past tee time for 18 holes of golf they started us on Mulligan which is their new 9 hole course which consist of 8 par 3s and 1 par 4 WHAT? this was not what we were promised on GolfNow On the turn when I and other golfers complained they said this was stated on our reservation Ummm no it was not Pace of play was very slow and very over priced To make matters worse all 27 holes were open. AVOID this place at all costs

grlevy-

Our sincerest apologies on your experience. We have been in the over-seeding process since September 16th with only 18 holes open. Starfire has 27 holes, when we over-seed we close one of the nine hole courses at a time leaving two courses open offering golfers 18 holes to play. It is our goal to let every golfer know what the rotation is before they come to Starfire. We are sorry that this may not have been communicated to you properly. We do appreciate you playing Starfire and your feedback, if you have the opportunity I would like to discuss this personally with you, please contact me at 480-948-6000. Thank you very much,

Mamie Wood, Director of Golf

Great golf course

Today was the 1st time playing here and can't wait to play this course again! The course is in great shape with some pretty good challenging holes. From the clubhouse to the starter (Walter) and cart girl ( Miranda)the staff made it just an all around great day.

Great value

Course is a little rough. Fairways aren’t in good shape and around the greens the grass isn’t consistent. Having said that it was a great value. Greens rolled well, we played very quickly (under 3 hours for our twosome) and had a good time. As lots of other reviews indicated, there are lots of trees, so it is easy to find shade, an important consideration for our afternoon round.

If you are looking for great conditions, go elsewhere and pay a lot more. If your looking for a fun, inexpensive round, try here.

Fun course, fast play

Although the course was wet ins some spots, we enjoyed our round very much. Friendly staff, off the course in a little over 3 hours. I would recommend the course and will play again.

Best course great game

We start with King and end with Hawk, eventhough it was hot there was plenty of trees and water to keep cool. Gordon had an eagle we both shot 80. Thank will recommend this course to everyone.

Terrible

The fairways were...dirt with some spotty grass (?) thrown in. By far, the worse condition of any course we have played. Greens were ok.

Play was crawling. no help from the Marshall on course pulled up to the first tee only to find

d a foursome in front of us waiting on the foursome teeing off waiting on the foursome in fairway waiting on the foursome on the green. after two hours we finally reach the sixth tee box the 5 hours was bad but the fairways less grass and hitting out of mud areas where there should be grass was as bad. I know it's hot and dry and summer time, but this is the worst time I've played this course . The extremely long play just made it seem worst
