Rating 72.8
Type Public/Municipal
The Aquila Golf Course facility offers two golf courses; one is a championship length course while the other is a par-3, nine-hole course. The championship course provides an excellent game of golf for an affordable price. There are scenic views of mountains and downtown Phoenix as well as a challenging layout featuring several water hazards and bunkers. Although the terrain is rather hilly, it is still relatively walkable. The course has an excellent range of holes that each have a unique character, the par 5's are especially notable. Native grasses and wildflowers are also present on Aquila's Championship course, further adding to its natural beauty.

Great condition and value.

My wife and I played the par 3 at this city course and it was in great shape. The staff said we could re-round for free, so we played it twice for 18 holes. It was easy to walk and we never had anyone in front or behind us. The grounds were very well kept and nice and green. We now want to try the regular 18 hole course next time.

Aguila Golf Course

The best municipal course in the valley by far. Course is fun, wide enough to suit draws or fades and your occasional slices. The course is nothing to complain about. Wish the golf shop would advise players before booking a round they have no cart service or an on site grill shop.Its been awhile since last played this course but last time they still had amenities. I was disappointed that they still have not upgraded water coolers around the course. Once they resolve this issue I can truly say it's going to be once more the best value for around in town.

Love this course. Interesting layout that keeps your attention. However, I was very surprised to learn (while one the course) that there is limited drinking water on course, no cart person and a very limited amount to purchase in pro shop. on a summer day in Phoenix, this borders on dangerous for the golfer. was told later that course doesn't have restaurant license so no cart person but no reason they cant have big water jugs on the course or ice buckets on the cart if you bring your own. love this course but will have to think twice before playing again before October

Muni gem!

Always enjoy playing here. Bunkers are much better. No snack bar and beer selection is weak. Not a fan of how they handle operation hours but those are the only negatives.

Nice Course

This course is always in fairly good shape. I don't mind driving around the mountain to ensure decent playing conditions. The bunkers were a little rough last time I played but they have sand in them now. They don't have a snack bar which is a little odd.

Great course. City needs to fix lack of restaurant/cart beverage service problem.

City of Phoenix City Council can fix this. Food and beverage service in the summer in Phoenix is a safety as well as comfort issue. Subsidies for foodservice now, please.

This problem has gone on too long.

Phoenix golf

This is a spectacular course for views and staff. No snack bar or beverages are available which stinks but the course shines. Tremendous vistas!! Greens and overall course was a pleasure to play. Definitely return

OK City Course

I played here 5 weeks ago and the course is in the same condition. The tee boxes, fairways, and greens would be rated at 4-5 stars but the rough and bunkers would only be rated at 1-2 stars. It was a 4.5 hour round so pace of play was OK although I'm not a fan of allowing people to walk while others pay for a cart and wait behind the walking groups.

One of the Better PHX City Courses

Aguila is one of the more challenging city courses and the fairways and greens were in decent shape. The bunkers are in disrepair and under renovation based on signage in the carts with a free drop during play. For $30-40 it's one of the better options for winter golf in Phoenix. If it wasn't a city course I'd give is a 3/5.

Great

If want a world class layout and fantastic course conditions then play here, it’s a monster worth every penny. And they don’t want many pennies to play here. Book your time and go, period, pound for pound this is as good a $30-$40 round of golf in the entire valley

Great City Course

We decided to get an early morning tee time (6:32 am) and it was awesome. The course fairways were very dry but they were shutting down in a day or two for overseeding. The greens were punched probably a week prior but putting on the greens were surprisingly pretty good. There are some challenges on the course, some holes had narrower fairways, others had hazards that required target golf. Bunkers are like cement also there were no rakes for them. Their concession was closed, and they do not have any ice because of permit issues. Overall great value and enjoyable course. 16th hole par 3 had a gallery watching us tee off. Roadrunner and bunny.....

Enjoyable golf.

I enjoy playing this course. It has a good layout and some challenging holes. Open fairways but you have to get the ball out there. Greens were a bit rough , but rolled true. Traps crusty. Will play it again, very good pace of play and a good value if you don't mind the AZ heat.

Nice Course

Nice course. Greens looked like they were plugged and sanded not long ago but putted good and fast. The course is pretty forgiving and pretty open but you still have to place your shots. I like the rolling hills and some of the shots were kind of blind shots so it made you think about club selection. Some nice long PAR 5's.

I would definitely play again

The greens were recently "cross-cut" and not very easy to putt on. I took a friend there for the first time he ever played there and we thought the course / greens in particular were not in very good shape.
