Great time out!

We really enjoy this course! The staff are very friendly & we appreciate that they don’t force a twosome to have to be a foursome. It’s such a comfortable, casual atmosphere!

Great golf value

The course is in great shape right now and the price is right. This is an ex PGA course from the heyday of some of the greatest names in golf and is still a very challenging course for anybody's game. Afterwards there is the Duke's Bar in the hotel situated on the course aptly named after it's famous visitor who's ranch was nearby. The food is excellent with the Stagecoach Burger and Fish Tacos at the top of my favorites, plus plenty of draft beer to rehydrate after a round of golf.

Long fairway grass

Middle of the fairway and the ball is almost hidden. Grass is long in most of the fairways. Greens a little slow but playable

Wet and slow, but worth a visit.

Course was wet, probably as they come out of overseeding. Green were still very slow, especially earlier in the morning before they dried out. Course was challenging and fun, but nothing that wowed me. Placement off the tee is key, greens aren’t that big. All in all worth a trip from phoenix once.

Francisco Grande Resort and Golf Course

Course was in good shape, a few wet area on the fairways. I can see why people say lots of mosquitoes didn't have to deal with mosquitoes. Over all good course layout I would play there again.

Lots of mosquitos

The course was in pretty good condition for just being over seeded. Several areas were pretty wet. Mosquitos are terrible on the back nine. Greens are slow, but roll pretty true. The course should be in excellent playing condition in a few weeks. Friendly and helpful staff.
