The Par-3 Course at Aquila is a perfect complement to the original championship course at the facility. Although the nine-hole course is easier, it still has a unique and challenging design. Conveniently located just outside of downtown Phoenix, the golf course offers an affordable option for golfers to work on their short game. Numerous bunkers and native grass roughs add some interesting elements to the game. The serene desert landscape also provides majestic views of the Estrella Mountains and the downtown Phoenix skyline. The course has two teeing areas per hole as well as driving ranges and practice greens.

Spray painted greens

Great 9 hole executive course. For the last 3-4 years, they have stopped over seeding and just spray paint the greens. As a result, they do not roll true and are like putting on concrete....slick. No grass, crazy roll. It’s is a shame that the city is too cheap to have real growing turf on the greens.

Used cart

cart girl and food service is back

very glad to see that Aguila finally has a cart girl back out on the course and serving food again in the club house. Unfortunately I have seen the course in better shape...seems like they might be losing their greens. Very bare and not as receptive as usual, still rolled true but bone dry. Fairways, tee boxes and much improved sand in the traps all looked good.

Great Iron Course

This pAr three course has excellent greens and very grassy tee boxes. There is no green grass on any fairway, but being a par three course, golfers are expected to hit the green with the tee shot. Distances range from 46 yards to 178 yards and varying distances in between. We got a hot deal for $5 each through Golf Now and could replay as much as we wanted. We did 36 holes. This was a walking rate and the course is quite hilly so I would recommend it for those who enjoy a good walk for exercise. Pace of play was excellent. This is a great course for practising short irons and putting!

Nice par three

The cours3 is a great course to practice iron shots. All holes are par 3 but one is 184 yards so it is challenging. There is also a 165 yard hole as well. The tee boxes are level, larg3 and well watered. The greens are very large and consistent with well cut and smooth greens. There is no green fairway grass but since it is a par three, your tee shots should be able to travel from tee box to green rendering the fairway watering unnecessary. The pace of play was excellent. Never waited on any holes. Very enjoyable dY!

Good value for the money

Overall this was a good course. Small, but typical of a par 3 course. Tee boxes and greens were well maintained, nice and green. "Fairways" leave a bit to be desired as they werent very green, but it's a par 3 course so most people dont spend a lot of time hitting from there. I was told I could replay as many times as I wanted so I played twice. Overall a very good value for the money, especially if you replay once or twice.

what is with city courses not offering drinks and food

the course is in excellent shape, greens were fast and true and held approach shots. The bunkers are much improved. What is going on with city courses not having food or drinks? no snack shop or beverage cart on the course.

A real gem for short game tune-up !

Almost always only a few players out there but conditions are fantastic. Greens rolled very well & had good speed to 'em, a couple/few feet extra roll-out 2watch out4.

The contours and undulation of the course truly add to the challchallenge & certainly help working on the short game ! Thanks Folks.

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
