We really enjoy this course and wanted to get in a round before they close for the summer. All staff members are always super nice & friendly. Amazingly enough. The 107 temp wasn’t even bad. We’ll look to being back in the fall.
Greens were the best I have ever seen! Fairways had brown areas, but overall playable. Greens rolled true and were soft. Would play again
Oh, them trees!
This is a fun course for playing with your favorite foursome. Worth the trip from PHX or TUS. Trees provide welcome shade, but they also create some tough obstacles. Greens need attention. Overall, great value and fun to play.
Been playing Francisco Grande for thirty years. I have never seen the greens in better shape. Well done!
2some played in 4hrs
Not a good day 4somes all out in front of us
Fairways still brown spots in all holes
Great Time! Great Day!
Great value for the price ! The course was in great shape & all the staff were super friendly & courteous!
Blue tees 6500 yds, a little over my preferred distance. Course in decent shape, greens excellent.Most holes straight forward enjoyed overall feel for course. This track is closed for summer soon, as it caters to snowbird crowd. Really like the open, but established course feel.
Nice course and long.
Course was in very good condition. Greens were really nice and course overalls well groomed. Definitely will play again.
Got out early
Fairways nicely cut. Still brown areas in every fairway
Overall nice course
Best shape in ten years.
I have been playing this course off and on for thirty years and it had fallen in disrepair until this year and it's in great shape again but they are closing again for the summer. They won't reopen until Oct.
Course has nice features
Course is very well maintained and groomed. Most greens were in great shape with nice roll. A few of the greens had a few bad areas but not a real distraction. Course is longer yardage than most I've seen in this area and thoroughly enjoyable. Look forward to playing again soon.
4some in 4hrs
nice shape except the fairways have brown spots on every hole. Sprinklers need better alignment?
Greens real nice
The course is in great shape. They done a great job on the greens .Too bad they close June 1 -September.
The staff are all great. Pace of play was good also.
A busy Sunday morning
Slow greens. Back nine even more so
Need to route the sprinklers better. Some brown spots in the fairways
3 1/2 hrs for 3 some
Something totally different
I have never even seen a course like this in Arizona. It harkens back to a 1960’s style resort. Elevation changes, huge trees and tablecloth sized greens. The pro shop almost seems to be a time machine...
