Shadow hills

Pro shop personnel were quite abrupt when I checked in . When I booked tee time not informed of shotgun. Due to torrential rain the previous day about 5 holes were extremely flooded which we placed as par 3s or short par 4s.None of this was mentioned when I checked should have been given discounted green fee or a chance to cancel but I guess the money is more important than customer service , will not be returning to this course.

Good course - sow pace

This course is laid out nicely. The reason I know is that I had ample time to study each and every aspect of the course because we waited painfully for five or ten minutes on every shot.

The first six holes took two hours at which point we called the pro shop. They said they’d send out a Marshall. Yep, the Marshall showed up checking his clipboard- only to announce “”the course is playing on pace”. What does that mean? We just played a 2 hour and 45 minute nine hole round. Is that the expected pace of play? If so, COUNT ME OUT! They were kind enough to issue a nine hole rain check, but at this pace, who wants to play????

Shadow Hills fun

Course was in great shape. Greens were smooth and rolled well.
It can be tough when it’s windy. Staff was very friendly. I appreciate it when we can load our clubs into the car after our round by taking the cart to our car. Staff then took the carts back to clubhouse. I will play it again.

Slow pace, average fairway

The course is ok, but the pace yesterday was quite slow, many slow golfers on course I can tell. Marshalls were around but didn’t really push forward the pace. The front 9 is ok, but back 9 fairways were not in good conditions. One thing to note is that the green is very difficult. Fast green with a lot of hidden breaks, so be careful.

Too tricky

As a former member of the PGA, I am a little critical of this course. Far too much sand in the bunkers, too many high lips on bunkers. Almost half of the greens are too severe, with too many undulations and false fronts. Whoever sets the pins needs to be re-trained. You should never place a pin on the top of a mound, with severe breaks 360 around the cup, or less than 10’ from any edge. Grass is too short on the fairways requiring more maintenance. 10th fairway is atrocious.

Good, solid course

The greens, tee off boxes and fairways are in good shape. It’s a straightforward course with good bunker placements and some long par threes. Really enjoyed

Enjoyed playing this course. In overall good condition. What was interesting was that this course organizes two shot gun starts. My tee-off was 12:30. Saw all the players and thought this was going to be a long day. Thought this much like a golf tournament. I was presently surprised. Finished round in under 4hours. The club starter made sure everything moved at a reasonable pace. Very friendly staff.

Excellent course in this price point for all skill levels.

I have golfed many / most public courses in the valley and this place is my favorite in this price point. I’m a 9 handicap and my wife is a 30 and we can both enjoy this course. We have played it 7 or 8 times over the years and it still holds my interest. Back up to the tips and it is all you can handle.....move forward and it is very fair and playable for the higher handicaps.

Another Beautiful Troon Track

Booked this course as a warm up course for the beginning of our golf trip. It turned out to be more than an easy warm up course. It was in perfect condition tee to green. The greens were cut the same morning for the first time coming out of overseeding so they were a little bumpy but not a big deal. Easy course off the par 4 & 5 tees (We played the tips), but the greens were the equalizer. Not having a beverage cart was a disappointment and the turnaround shack wasn’t stocked with any whiskey at all (we’re Canadian so...). Saw the marshal several times. Highly recommend the course. Will play again.

Shadow Hills South- DONT miss it.

Several times I’ve played this course, and several times I’ve loved every minute. Treated well, course is superb and greens are a challenge, or is it me that’s a bit “challenged”. In any event, we loved it and will be back. Thx for a memorable round.

cart path only

Everything in good condition but recently overseeded for the season so cart path only was pretty tiring if you are in a cart on your own. Greens very slow due to sanding. quite a few marshals which 0potentially keeps things moving. All in all very good however.
