Fountain hills is reasonably priced, somewhat challenging and usually well maintained. My only complaint is that you can get some slow play. The day I played me and a friend had no one in front of us so it played like a country club. Several of the holes are a bit narrow with virtually nowhere to miss the fairway . Holes 2 and 3 make it easy to go OB left. Number 7 is a 145 yd par 3 but anything left of the center of the fairway will run towards the pond on the left (OB right here is out on the street) . Hole nine is a tough par 4 and longer hitters can reach the pond at the end of the fairway from the tee. The course is generally pleasing to the eye and worth giving a try. It's a walkable course as well although I almost always take a cart.

I was there 20 minutes early as a single but they gave me a key for a cart on I drove to the putting green to practice. When my tee time came they wanted to put a twosome ahead of me. Then they wanted to put a foursome ahead of me. Then they asked me to give up my cart which I questioned but complied. They said they were short carts but I counted 5 carts empty. A threesome was late for their teetime but the pulled up in two carts and the starter told them I was going to use the cart with one person in it. This was a family with the husband and son in one cart and the wife alone in a cart that I shared. She was not at all happy with this and I don't believe the other two were either. Very embarrassing for me...I won't be back. The women i was a beginner and it was terrible 9 holes.

course was wet in spots and most of the traps had water due to the morning and previous days rain, but on the whole it played fairly well. We just moved our balls out of wet spots and traps. Have played this course several times. Usually play it when I can only shoot 9. Got a great price from golf now.

A very good 9 hole course for a golfer of my experience ( mid 40's). First time I pared a par 5 hole! The course has a little of everything. Course is not to long or too short, it is a very good challenge for an intermediate golfer.
