Wet but fun
Went after a big rainstorm and the course was soaked - like moving water in some fairways soaked. That significantly reduced pace of play and I can’t blame the course for that.
Overall I really enjoyed it though. The scenery alone beats the heck out of golf in the city, and I’ll be back next time I am in the area.
A tale of two nines.
Paradise Valley is good value for the average golfer. The front nine is relatively short, flat, and simple. In contrast, the back nine is longer, hilly, and challenging. Back nine has some very picturesque. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
Bad Pace, Good Course
The course was great condition, staff was awesome. Pace of play was awful. I will sh they would’ve yelled at a few groups in front of us.
Review of 7/6/2012, Paradise Valley
Greens were in good shape but a little slow. Fairways were ok but there were rough spots here and there.
Overall it was OK but I am not sure it was worth 38 dollars.
Greens were nice
The condition of the greens were the best part. Very pleased with that and the staff. The course layout is a bit odd. Takes some course knowledge to play well here. I would go there again compared to other courses in the area for the money.
Nice, challenging course with good elevation change and hole variety. Some areas of bare dirt but minimal. Most of the fairways in good condition. Greens were in excellent condition.
I've played this course a couple times a season over the past 3 years. Although I keep leaving disappointed, I believe this course has potential. The location and course layout is great, although the maintenance and upkeep on the course is less than par. They've had water hazard project on the 17th hole that has been ongoing for the past couple years without completion. With that being said your shooting around an odd hazard of a half empty pond and 3 foot excavated dirt on the sides.
Today was dry with a only 2 fairways potentially wet from the rains from last week causing a cart path only rule that not only my group was left in confusion about.
The greens are good, on the weekends they offer an outdoor grill that's good as well.
Pretty good shape for being soggy
The area has just been hammered with rain of late.
The play was cart path only. So, play was a bit slow. However, the greens were in great condition. Not much roll our in the fairways. So, everything played almost a club farther than the yardage showed.
One note, the GPS reading on the first hole always reads farther than it is. I got readings of 160 when I had to be more like 130. Otherwise my readings seem to line up well with the course markings.
Staff was very pleasant; had a good time.
Not Worth The Time
I saw the reviews for this course and it seemed like a good idea. Around $30 for a nice afternoon to golf. Let me tell you when I say I regretted the whole thing. First couple of tee boxes had literally just about 3 patches of grass. I know that the grass has been struggling this year, but there wasn't even evidence that grass was seeded. I would say 70% of my shots were hitting off of dirt in the middle of the fairway and the tee box. The only decent thing about the course was the greens which were in really good shape. But when I go to a par 3 and I have 0 grass to hit off of, that is definitely an issue. Plus the pace of place was extremely slow. We had a threesome in front of us playing 2 balls each and wouldn't let anyone play through. There was no one monitoring the pace of play and it showed. Definitely a beginner course and will not be returning. Way to much money for that kind of conditions.
Course management is working hard to improve conditions. Greens were In Very good shape, rough was filling in nice and some fairways may fill in by July. The course is very playable and an enjoyable layout.
Enjoyed the golf with nice weather but could tell weather had been hard on course. Zoysia fairways look ragged. heavy rains have washed out a bunch. Sand traps were hard. Many trees have been cut down and over seeding is much needed. Anxious to see it early June after some work is put into it. I've always liked the lay-out.
The entire course with exception of the greens has been hit hard with wet conditions.
While the price was right for this time of year. the course conditions leave much to be desired. There are other better values for the buck in our area.
Par for this course
Nothing too good or bad to say about the course itself. Employees/amenities are not great. Players on course seemed tense/quick. Probably wouldn't go back unless a deal popped up.
Enjoy this course.
I truly enjoy the layout of this course. You can make your round challenging or moderate depending on how you play the course. Great value for the money. Greens were excellent today and the course was in very good condition, except for a few of the tee boxes.
Greens are in excellent shape for this time of year.
Greens in very good shape
The staff here is always the best. Pretty good value and they are making strides to make this place better every time i play.
Greens rolled very well and this place can be quite a bit challenging from the back tees. Fairways are better than last time, but there are a number of trouble spots, same as a lot of STL courses this year.
Love playing here and this place is always fun gambling since you can take some chances on a number of holes.
