The executive-length course at the Adobe Dam Family Golf Center is mostly made up of par 3s and par 4s but there is one par 5. The golf course is suitable for beginners but it is also great for more advanced players who want to work on their short game. The course has small greens typical of older, traditional courses and they require accurate shotmaking. The last two holes are the most difficult. The Adobe Family Golf Center is also home to the Phoenix Golf School. There are also practice facilities including a lighted driving range with 50 all grass hitting stations, a pitching green that has bunkering, and a putting green.

Took a hot deal for 10.00 which included all the fees. Course isn't much but I like the practice range and the 9 holes are good iron practice but it's not worth much more than 10-15 dollars

Booked for $20 total for 2 walking. Played in 75 minutes. Greens are small but good, especially after being cut. We were just looking for a place to warm up. Great little practice area and okay range with real grass. Great place to take kids. They also offer foot golf for 1st timers who want to try or for the kids to play along with you while you get some shots in.

A very basic beginner course. Price is commensurate to this. However, if your time is short and you want to get 9 holes in, this works very well. Also, the driving range is good for a warm up. If you are looking for great AZ scenery or a challenging course, this is not it. For those that are spending a week in the sunny south and haven't swung a club in a few months, it was perfect to knock the rust off.

With elevated greens, short par 3’s and some straight par 4s . You think this would be an easy course. This layout really defines your short game and if you’re on - you’re on. Greens are always nicely mowed and smooth rolling. Great practice course if you need work on GIR from 150yds or less. This will test your skill.

Takes me back to one of the courses I learned to play on back in Vermont. Short, simply laid out and a great place for beginners. Also better players can work on elements of their game on course. There is also a range, though I did not use it.

A friendly young man checked me in and pointed out the window toward the first tee.

I like to squeeze in a quick nine from time to time so I thought I would play Adobe Dam. Well what I got was some pretty poor playing conditions. I played Encanto 9 last weekend and the greens and fairways were pretty green. This place however was yellow with green spots. The pace of play was hindered by kids goofing off on the course. The only thing that was a positive was the greens. The ball rolled nicely and they seemed to be the only thing kept. Overall if you want to play a quick nine go to Encanto or somewhere else and don't bother with the kids and poor conditions at Adobe Dam.

I just got my rear end kicked by Quintero yesterday. I wanted a quick easy nine to regain some confidence before I threw all of my clubs away. :) This course was in excellent shape, except for the greens. The Tee boxes were mostly flat and had good grass. The fairways were in great shape (better than Quintero). The greens were smooth and had great grass. They were just incredibly shaggy!! Like putting on my living room carpet.

The only issue I really had was hat the round was not a bad price. $8.50 for 9. The cart, on the other hand..... $10. Then I finished my round in 45 min. I asked if I could play another nine. I was told that it would be an additional $6 for another nine. Ok no prob. But, If I wanted the cart still, it was another $10. That would have made it $34.50 for 18 holes. WOW!!! They also did not allow any warm up balls for free either. It was another $4 for that. All in all, I paid $22.50 for nine holes that are so short, I finished in 45min.

They need to reevaluate there pricing and they would have a whole lot more people playing. Not many people want to walk, even a short course, in 109 temps.
