Not worth the money
The course has a decent layout, the fairways and greens were in good shape. The greens were very fast with lots of subtle brakes around the pins....probably too fast for the pin placements. Lots of under developed areas and side hill lies.
We were a group from out of town (100 miles) and the Marshall would not leave us alone...constantly following one group or another....just out 3 groups. I asked him once nicely to go away and the second time in no uncertain terms to go away!
The course is an $18.00 to $25.00 course. I will not return!
Very good course
I love playing here and can't wait to do so again the only problem is the snowbirds really find any reason to complain about anything
This course has made many improvements
Nice to see and walk on the green fairways. A very interesting course but sandtraps lacking sand. Good vslue in afternoon.
A very fun course to play and everyone there is friendly and helpful. Love playing this course and having one of their great burgers and a beer after the round. Have booked again for Tuesday
It's not the well manicured course you would pay $250 for in Palm Springs, but it's great layout, challenging greens and reasonable prices keep us coming back!
Excellent value and very forgiving fairways
Had a great round. Play was somewhat slow - there's a considerable lee backlog at hole 2 which is a par three with an elevated tee box. Golfers were stack d up three groups behind.
Greens were very fast but it was a warm sunny afternoon so they were likely neeeding some water.
Beers were only $5 a pitcher!
We got a fist time discount so it was $20 per person with a cart! Can't beat that value.
Great Little Course
To glance at the scorecard or map of the course it looks pretty easy. Its elevation changes on the front nine and the very tricky greens make the front a challenge. The back is fairly level except for 17 and a gain the greens are a challenge. Overall a very good course to play
I am a snowbird and play this course 1-2 times per week in January and February. This is my 2nd year playing here. I sense that there is a clique at this course who have an attitude that the rules and golf etiquette do not apply to them.
On a prior occasion, I immediately followed a group of 30 or so golfers who regularly play a scramble on Sunday with the course pro. That day, the course was littered with cigarette butts, especially on the fringe around the greens. On one hole, there were orange peelings lying on the ground next to the ball washer.
In general, I have noticed that divots on fairways and ball marks on the greens are being repaired by golfers.
On this particular occasion, while waiting 20 minutes to tee off on Hole 1, no golfers went out ahead of me in this time. I was scheduled with another single. We never saw another group on any hole on the front nine. When we came to Hole 9, there were no golfers on the fairway or on the green. The flag was in. We played Hole 9 quickly and went directly to Hole 10, without stopping at the turn. When we got to the Hole 10 tee, there were 5 golfers walking off the tee. I gave them the opportunity to "do the right thing" without asking, as we were a twosome. They carried on without even acknowledging us. They played Hole 10 slowly. We waited to hit our drives. When we got to our drives, we had to wait again as this group was still on the green. We decided to skip the green for Hole 10 and proceeded to the tee for Hole 11, while the five-some was still on the green of Hole 10. As I was setting up for my drive, one of the 5 yelled at me from the Hole 10 green. I noticed that his cart was parked on the fringe of the green. He then came rushing over to us to say that we are to play Hole 11 AFTER his five-some group. I said that we would be teeing off right away and would be long gone by the time the rest of his group got to the tee on Hole 11. He became belligerent and proceeded to argue with me and tell me that he was going to report me to Rick (the pro). I replied that he can also tell the pro that his group is a 5-some and that his electric golf cart had been parked on the fringe adjacent to the green. We proceeded to play Hole 11 and never saw this group again.
On Hole 15, my playing partner got a phone call and had to leave immediately. I continued by myself. When I reached Hole 17, a man and a lady were just setting up to tee off. I asked if I could join them for the last two holes. To my shock, they replied, "We would rather not." WOW!
It is interesting to note that this Municipal course allows golfers to wear blue jeans on the course. At first, I thought that was okay, so I wear my jeans to the course on cold days when I am not wearing shorts. Now, in retrospect, I think that not having a dress code could cause golfers to have an indifference towards golf etiquette and other course and game rules. Hey, what do I know. I am not a psychologist.
Finally, I have never seen a Ranger on this course. I think they need to hire one.
After reading your review I felt that I had the need to comment on this situation. I was one of the fivesome and need to clarify exactly what happened with the situation regarding your review. Our foursome teed off at 10:30. There was a single golfer in front of us and we followed him through the front nine. Waiting patiently on each hole as he was waiting for the two some in front of him.
We then proceeded to hole number 10 on hole the single golfer asked if he could join up with us as he was waiting on the twosome in front of him. Knowing that the Golf Course allowed five somes we said sure that would be great if you joined us.
We all teed off our shot on hole number 10. Upon leaving the tee off box there were two men in golf carts waiting for their tee off. A comment was made that we were hoping to speed up as we were always waiting.
The one golfer looked at us and his demeanour was not very nice. No smiles or acknowledgment of what we said. We continued to play hole number 10 and as we were playing up towards the green the two drove by on their golf carts and the one man proceeded to set up to tee off on hole number 11.
His partner acknowledged that we were leaving hole number 10 green and said to him they're coming off the green now you totally ignored your partner and continued the set up process to tee off on hole number 11. It was then that the one person that joined our group approached you and said excuse me sir but it is our turn to tee off. You became very belligerent and accused us of not even golfing and just jumping onto the back we tried to explain the situation to you but you would not listen to any words that came out of our mouths. I finally asked you what your tee time was and you said 10:45.
You were very rude and confrontational. Even saying to us we had better not even try to hit up on you because bad things would happen.
After talking for a few minutes more you then said to me well you guys go ahead. I said no thank you.
I guess what you didn't realize is if you had only used golf etiquette and asked us to play through this confrontation would of never happened.
You totally took it upon yourself to butt in. You played the front nine with no one in front of you and thought you could do the same in the back.
You continued your fast pace constantly hitting up to the twosome in front of you.
So on hole 17 that twosome had teed off and you approached them on their second shot and asked them if they minded if you joined them as your partner had left. You were amazed that they both said yes they would mind. Once again your own lack of golf etiquette resulted in them saying no.
The final straw was your audacity to go into the clubhouse and complain about our fivesome.
Your review reflects so much negativity towards golfers and staff at Blythe Golf course. I have been golfing for 20 years plus and find this course very accommodating and everyone is extremely friendly.
I have golfed this course 18 times so far and have always seen the Marshall.
I have never in my life encountered a situation like that day and hope that I never will.
So this is the other side of your review.
Wildlife includes bunnies and roadrunners. Maybe even the odd rattle snake.
Really enjoy playing this course. Friendly staff, good rates on Golf Now which includes a riding cart. Only problem is sometimes it is very windy, at least this year it has been. Otherwise, great course, in great shape.
Great Golf Course
Although this course is somewhat challenging, it can be walked or you can take a cart. I continually struggle with reading the greens. There are 3 water holes that can't seem to get enough balls...mine anyway!! For the length and difficulty of this course, the price is very good and the condition of the course is also very good. You are sure to see bunnies and road runners on this course.
Ranger Free Round
And Maybe that's why the round was on pace for over 5 Hours! We paid for 18 but only could drag around that slowly for nine.
Surprised by the condition. Group of 4 friends thought it was a great course. Best greens that we played on since arriving in the southwest since Jan, 2016.
Played many top rated courses in Phoenix, this course was the best.Winds were blowing 40 mph. most of the round.I will take a 3 hour drive again to play again.
When your site works last minute golf is great but the mobile site is down too often.
A little gem in Blythe
I'm lucky to be able to play golf all over the world. This layout was very enjoyable. It's not tricky except for the tilt of holes 3 and 4, which was crazy but fun. Some greens ran crazy fast but we played with a couple who knew the roll. Everyone out there knows how to play proper pace. Fairways playable, rough dormant as you'd expect in January. Back 9 much friendlier til you face a 200 yard shot over a lake on 16 or the 18th, a par 3, 210 up a hill. Great stuff. We'll be back on our way to Arizona.
Pretty well maintained local course - nice scenery.
Great Little Course
We have played the course twice-enjoy the weather this time of year and the course is convenient and fun.
