Type Public
Style Traditional
Par 72
Length 7002 yards
Slope 126
Rating 72.7

Hillcrest Golf Club possesses a championship length course that offers a great variety of game options with five sets of tees. The course has a traditional design that features open fairways lined with trees, which put a premium on straight shots. The greens vary greatly with some that are relatively flat and medium sized and others that are quite large and dramatically sloped or multi-tiered. In addition to several sand bunkers, water hazards in the forms of lakes and ponds come into play. The signature hole is the par-5 13th, which has been touted by the Phoenix Gazette as being on of the best holes in the state. Hillcrest Golf Club not only has a dogleg around a lake, the hole requires an approach shot uphill to a green that is guarded by eight bunkers.

Nice pace today!!

It was a great way to spend Easter Sunday. Not very busy so the pace was great! Done in a little over 3 hrs. Course, like many others is drying up due to the heat, but still in ok shape, greens were consistent.

Great day at Hillcrest

Hillcrest is a great value golf course! I love the layout. The fairways and greens were in good shape. Like many of the local courses, the sand is not good. The back nine is much nicer than the front. Good service from all staff!

Needs some TLC

This could be a really nice course with some TLC.Good layout, but... slow rough greens, fairways are in need of water and fertilizer, Tee boxes are also in poor condition. Not the conditions we had hoped for.

BIG Greens

After the first few easy holes, the course gets interesting, the greens get huge and the fun starts, then continues all the way foe the round. The clubhouse closed at 5, so rating is lower, but it’s really about the golf, which was terrific.

Good greens

For the money it’s not bad. Fairways are way too long of a cut. But the greens are firm, fast & true.

Nice Course Hard Greens

Overall a nice course for the average golfer. Price is right. Front 9 is pretty easy but good to start on. Back 9 is tougher. Fairways are in good condition with some dry spottiness. Greens also are in good condition with some dry spottiness. Only problem with the course is Greens are Hard. If you can really spin your approach shot then no problem but for most golfers the ball doesn't stick on the greens but just rolls forever. All in all I'd give it a 3.5-3.6. Staff was nice and considerate. .

golf now problem

We arrived for our tee time and found that we were not listed as having one on golf now. By combining a couple of groups were able to squeeze in 20 minutes later. The round went well with the exception of slow play caused my a Junior College tournament. Thanks pro shop folks!
