Fun, challenging course

Lots of hills and blind shots, hard to see the fairway and pin. Plenty of water on the front nine and sand on the back to test your accuracy. Course was in great shape with a super friendly staff.

Poor review

I was upset that they don't advise prior to booking that it was cart path only for a100.00plus round you should be able to at least 90deg by then, the t boxes were disgusting condition and the bunkers were rocky sand/dirt...not impressed overall. Dont know if i would play this course again

The entire staff is LOST

Searched for a morning tee time at a nice place and selected Az Grand Resort. Played 5 years ago, outstanding experience foot to door. Yesterday, from the moment my feet hit the parking to the moment I left the property was a comedic tragedy. Starter was extremely rude TELLING me to hurry. Pro Shop sends outside services out to me after hole #1 to tell me that my round was not paid for on Golfnow and I needed to come in immediately and pay. You’re kidding, right? Can’t settle up at the turn? I was of the belief that I’d pre-paid. Guy takes my MasterCard then returned it next hole. Wow. The Marshall was on his cell phone and actually “shushed” when I asked him a question. Hah. In the present times of uncertainty and so many great choices, the resort GM had better evaluate his staff one by one by one. No one I observed gave one hoot whether or not I was their GUEST. I doubt I’ll play there for another 5 years and frankly, they could care lees than I.

Highly recommend

Staff was very nice, even down to the golf cart girl. Course was awesome! Drinks were a little expensive for only a shooter size of liquor which isn’t even a normal pour size. But other than that I would come again!

AZ Grand

The course did not allow carts on the fairways at all. They should have had this posted on the site before people get a tee time. I am 4 weeks post hip replacement surgery and really did not need to have all that walking. Fairways, tee boxes in good shape. Greens were terribly slow.

Grand but Not Grand

It’s grand as in, it’s a big course in terms of acreage, however, the play isn’t. Green is not maintained well, lots of duck feces everywhere on the first 9. The layout is pretty and hole 18 has a beautiful view for a par 3. Not really worth the money to play here.

Cart path only ok but there should have been a lower price for this inconvenience which slowed play and made it difficult to select clubs.

Great day of golf!

They had just over-seeded the course the week before so condition of the course is hard to rate. The fairways were in good condition for a course going through an over-seeding and most of the greens were in pretty good shape. However a few of the greens were really torn-up - far beyond what you would expect for an over-seeding.

The course has no "turn" so you're golfing 18 holes with no services other than the beverage cart. We saw the cart 3-4 - times and that was great - but the offerings were very limited. A few drinks, chips and pretzels. With no turn, I would think they could do a better job of offering a few things on the cart - maybe breakfast burritos or something.

Also, there was nothing really available at the pro shop before we stared. We were told that they had limited services due to COVID, but frankly, I'm tired of hearing that. They were running a full schedule and no problem pairing my friend and I with another 2-some. The course is run by a major hotel and it seems like they should be able to find a way to offer breakfast and other food items to customers. If they aren't going to find a way to serve their customers, they should find a way to inform them when booking - we would have planned to grab a bite and/or brought some snacks.

But all said, it was a nice course at a good rate and we had a great day. We'll be back!

Fun, quirky layout in good condition

Resort course at Arizona Grand Resort is convenient if your are staying on property but I would probably choose to play elsewhere if you have the time/budget with so many great courses in the Phoenix area.

It's fine but definitely not spectacular. Layout is little bit quirky -- i.e. some oddly constructed holes, semi awkward in places, tee shot on #1 is blind uphill. Feels sort of squeezed in to the confines of the resort property. Be prepared for long drives in the cart between green and next tee -- particularly after finishing #18. Would suck to walk it. But overall it was fun, lots of variety, and overall condition of the course was excellent. Most holes are lined with condos but there is a small 3-4 hole break on backside where you plunge out into the desert and it's beautiful.

Good Course

Conditions were very good. Weren't able to finish starting at 2:18. Very congested on the back nine due to the more difficult fairways....
