Great Eagle Golf Club, rated one of the most affordable golf courses in Arizona, is a championship course in the West Valley. Although it has a traditional design there are several unique and challenging elements that come into play such as undulating mounds that cause uneven lies and well-guarded greens. Water hazards also come into play on four holes. The golf course offers three sets of tee boxes so that there is some flexibility regarding levels of challenge, but overall the course is suitable for any player. The Great Eagle Golf Club, in addition to the course, also offers both a chipping green and a putting green.

I have come to realize that a round of golf can good or bad depending the weather and who you play with. With that said, even with a frost delay, t/times were caught up by my 11:40 start time. The weather continued to get better as the day went on. Kudos to the staff and starter for keeping golfers rolling. As a single I was paired with 2 great guys, Devin and Jim. We got along fine and they included me in their friendly banter.

The course has fairly nice green narrow fairways and really hardpack dirt rough. So, keep it in the fairways.

The greens true but a little slow.

Pace of play was slightly slow—probably due to frost delay. Our round took about 4 1/2 hours

It was just a little drizzle for our front 9, it stopped, and we started the back nine, on 11, it started raining, I called the pro shop and asked if they give rain checks and was told not if you already started the back. So we played in the rain. Disappointed. I've never seen that when you only played a hole.

A few things... First - Breakfast - Biscuits and gravy are GREAT!!.. The staff is always helpful and friendly. This time of year the course is in transition from winter to spring. in all the fairways are groomed with a very few patches of brown. The putting greens are almost perfect and good for putting. In all it wasn't crowded... pace was good and nobody pushing your game. I use this course for when I need a quick 4 hr round of golf

Course has many dead and brown areas on fairways. Where they have sodded is completely dead. Need to water. Golf carts not in good shape. First one died in the parking lot second one on 13th hole. Many carts left over complete course. Course and equipment need a lot of TLC

I did not feel like I should be there. The staff was not welcoming at all. The driving range was closed and no reason why when I asked.

Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in very good shape. Surrounding area not very pleasing.Good place for new golfers as not much of a challenge.

First off they had no carts for us which was part of the deal. They then gave carts to groups behind us and made us wait for carts. When one of the players I was matched up with questioned why they got carts before us and teed off before us when we had booked the earlier tee time he was verbally harassed by the starter and told if he didn't like it to go back to the clubhouse and get a refund and go away. When I was finally given a cart I was told the brakes were bad, but they said they trusted I could maneuver it throughout the retirement village crossing streets and such. Then there were no marshalls on the course to keep the pace of play going which made for a long 5 hour and 15 minute round. Lastly the course though a nice layout was in very poor condition with rough fairways and poorly conditioned greens. I will not return.

The only problem our 2 some encountered was at check in at 0730. The nice lady at the front desk said that Golf Now had double booked them-again.

Something is wrong with the interface between your scheduling and their scheduling.

The starter got us out just fine and we were off and running. An ok course for a great price.
