Conditions as great as ever, POP too slow

Wick Ranch has consistently been the best maintained course in the Phoenix area since it opened several years back. The greens are quick but putt very well. They are, however, quite difficult, in no small measure because of how quick they are given how much slope they have. The only downside to this round (aside from the weather, which - hey, it's Arizona in July) was the pace of play. We teed off at 8:00 and it took nearly five hours to finish our round, which is just not acceptable for such an early tee time. I've never played a fast round at Wick Ranch, the greens are too hard and the course too spread out and hilly, but five hours is absurd when so few people are on the course early. Worse, we were playing with a member and he mentioned the slow pace to a ranger at about the 12th hole. The ranger figured we were "on pace." If they are comfortable with that slow of a pace that early in the day (meaning for the rest of the day every round will be at least that long or longer) then perhaps I'm comfortable playing elsewhere.

Disappointed with indoor staff and pace of play.

I talk about how great Wickenberg Ranch all the time...I tell everyone I meet that it is my favorite course in the state. But today I was very disappointed. I originally booked a foursome but one backed out. I modified the reservation Friday morning and when I arrived I was told I still had to buy the 4th spot. Then we are forced to suffer through a 5 hour round in a 107 degree heat. I will not be going back anytime soon.

Dear Mr. Carrick, We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with feedback on your recent experience with us. Looking back on the information provided, you were within our 48 hour cancellation policy, for the tee time in question, as sent with the email confirmation. Despite being within the window of the cancellation policy, the team did offer to extend a credit for the value paid toward a future round of golf with us. Looking back through our pace of play records, pace was approximately 15-20 minutes behind which I do greatly apologize for. I assure you that moving forward this will be improved. Kind Regards, Steve Outlaw, PGA Head Golf Professional

Spanky's review

Excellent conditions, fun course...but you gotta play it more than once to know where to hit it. For some reason, there is a 2 club difference..use the extra clubs! That's Spanky's tip of the day on this course!

A gem in the desert of Arizona

This is a fantastic course, challenging and a lot of blind shots. Be sure to read the handout book they give you before each shot. My favorite hole is # 14 with the water running all the way down the left side of the hole, simply "breathtaking". Yes, totally enjoyed this wonderful "gem in the desert".
