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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.....

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. 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.
