Weather shortened round
Nice to play on a course not surrounded by housing. South course conditions were excellent, staff were great. Only negative was getting our round on the GolfNow “hot deal” pricing. It was raining when we started and raining really hard when we quit part way through. The fine print says the only refund available is when the course is closed. It might as well have been closed with the number of golfers remaining when we quit. The only ones left must have been the “ hot deal” people who couldn’t cancel. Ah well, live and learn.
Let's tee off
Staff very friendly and helpful. Course was in good shape but a little overpriced for a basic layout.
Great course and friendly staff.
Beautiful course, rate of play was perfect and the staff was awesome. Would recommend to anyone in the Phoenix area to play.
Slow play and noisy
Over a 5 hour round. They let people ride that aren’t playing and play their music very loud.
Pro shop staff outstanding. Starter was rude. Pace of play was awful, 5 1/2 hours to play, waited on every shot for 18 holes. No ranger to speed up play. Course was in great shape. Loved course and layout but will probably not come back to play because of slow play. Par 3’s all had 3-4 groups on them. 19th hole was best of the day and great service.
Traditional Course in Desert Setting
This was a traditional course in the desert. Played the South course. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Course was in good condition. Only complaint was that it took 4.5 hours to play. There was a Marshall but it didn't speed up play any. Would play again...maybe not on a Sunday of a 3-day weekend.
Course was in good shape.
Fairways had some very sparse sections where the ball was resting on hard ground.
Greens are very tricky. grain is a big factor, more than many other local courses.
Pace of play on the weekend was 2hours 45 minutes for the first nine holes.
Back nine time was better, but over 5 hours for the entire round.
Talking Stick going done hill
The course is not in good shape and took almost 5 hrs.
Tough but fair
Papiish was a treat. Tough greens, fast and firm. You have to know this to play the course well. Interesting par five combos. Lots of variables in how to attack them.
Great staff, friendly and very helpful. Micheal at the bag drop was a true peach.
I would Play this time and again.
A fun round with a friend
Always enjoy playing Talking Stick. Great service and great conditions.
Too much traffic
Course conditions were very good to excellent. As there was too much traffic,
at the back nine we were held up frequently so that it took us 2 1/2 hours to finish the round.
Great day of golf
Enjoyed the course and conditions very much. Tough but not insane. Played longer than it looked.
