Good experience

Fairways and greens were well manicured.
The greens were fast and I love fast greens.

Good Track, reasonably l-maintained, Friendly Staff

I have been playing this course almost weekly since May. I have responded to the survey at least twice. However, the it seems the feedback has not gotten back to the course. Nothing has been done to improve the items I had mentioned in previous surveys. Once again, two things must improve at this course as a base requirement. Improve the sand bunkers and repair the divots on the tee boxes and on the fairways. Ball marks on the greens are getting worse over time.

Good Track, reasonably -maintained, Friendly Staff

Short, but rather challenging lay-out. Water comes into play on 14 holes. Holes, 2, 4, 10 and 13 are especially tricky. Careful planning is a must on these holes. Fairways and greens are in good condition considering the finicky weather we are experiencing. Overall, very good course. Two items of concern: 1. poor condition of the sand bunkers. They are rock solid and clubs are likely to slide over the surface. 2. The tee boxes and roughs immediately close to the fairways are in poor condition.

Bumped out of reserved tee time

They bumped me right out of my reserved tee time. I had a copy of my confirmation but did no good. According to Tee Off someone from Glendale staff deleted my tee time. Worst part is I traveled thirty five minutes each way to the course. I will say the staff was trying to be as accommodating as possible with the mix up.

Sand Traps are like concrete

The course overall is well maintained, nice greens, nice fairways but the sand traps are atrocious. They are mostly dirt with very little sand. Most of the time I have to pull my ball out because it's unplayable. I did complain after my round and they showed me a plan to renovate the bunkers which is fine but why the Heck can't they get a few yards of sand and at least put a fresh layer over what's there? Additionally their COVID-19 foam doughnuts are way to big. I've played many courses this year and these are the worse, the ball skips over the hole when it should drop. Cut a smaller diameter piece and lower it another inch. I've been to courses with an alter flagstick, no foam which are great maybe look into that? I also despise the fact that you can't take the golf cart out to the parking lot to load and unload. I still think this is a nice place to golf and would be even better with those improvements.

Glad I booked it

A group of us were looking to play and tee times were going fast so I booked this course on a whim. Boy am I glad I did. The course was beautiful with a challenging but fun layout. I will definitely play here again.
