range and putting green closed, bunkers were hard as rock, course in bad shape due to rains...
What’s wrong with this GPS
Got there early and the driving range was closed so we went out right away. There were a couple of holes where
the ground was under repair before the greens. That was not a problem, our biggest concern was the cart gps. The graphics were like a bad video game. The distances took forever to get close to what they really were and to show where the flags where. I had my own gps, but did not take it because they were on the carts. I would play either course again, but would avoid using there gps because it would only push my handicap further up then what I am playing at.
THE RANGE AND PUTTING GREEN ARE CLOSED
Was very disappointed when I showed up 45 minutes early before my round on the day off and was looking forward to hitting some balls and putting prior to the round just to find out at the range and all practice facilities were closed! BULL
Great Fun, manicured, pleasurable round
People super, and customer focused The grounds keeping crew do a super job. Super green. Fast play...and fun with generous fairways. .
Very good course
We played the south course which was in very good condition given its summer. The fairways were exceptional. We found playing off the gold was more challenging than the black due to the hazard placements. Although insignificant I also liked having water coolers at every other hole. Would definitely play again.
The course was in great shape. The greens were good a little sand on them, but over all good.
Great course, but bunkers unplayable.
First time playing at Talking Stick. Played South/Piipaash for around $40, great summer deal. Was surprised by how nice the course is and the fun layout. Greens, fairways, and tee boxes were all in great shape. Unfortunately the bunkers basically don't have sand and are filled with packed dirt. I know bunkers are hard to maintain so I usually don't complain, but the complete lack of sand at Talking Stick makes them almost impossible to play because most of the greenside bunkers have high overhanging brims. After a 6-shot bunker experience we started taking a drop for all bunker play. This really changed the feel of the game and was pretty sad given the quality of the course. It would be a favorite place for me as I live so close.
Practice area and facility is top notch. Was suprised. Pace of play was rather slow, and this seems to be a constant theme in the reviews. Was playing in a two-some and we got through in just over 4.5 hours, waiting at every tee. Not sure if they need to space out the tee times more or what.
Will probably return to give it a second chance because this place is so convenient for me, and has a uniquely fun/playable desert layout. Please work on the bunkers and update the public so we know!
Wait a month before you play
this time of year I always call to check on the condition of the greens. Which I did the operator was somewhat confused about the timeline. (that should have tipped me off)
Well long story short she informed me wrong and Monday was the first day of off of aerification!
So the greens were awful
the kid in the shop tried his best to tell us they were going to be great but they weren't.
Probably won't ever play there again.
