Very nice course
Great course, nice layout, great condition. ...just way over priced. Can find much better values other places in the valley. Paid 92.00 +taxes and fees on golf now for a 2:00pm weekday tee time....that's really high priced.
Great Day at Wildfire
Wonderful layout, pace of play excellent. Definitely would play here again
Hot and Fast
Started at 1:00 by myself. No one around, didn't wait or have anyone wait for me. Played in about 2:45 taking my time. 104 degrees virtually no wind so it was HOT. Love the FAST carts and that you can drive virtually anywhere. GPS doesn't shut off the cart and make you back out. Makes for a pleasurable quick round. Water throughout the course. Fairways in excellent condition and greens were pretty fast considering the hot weather they were mowed fairly tight. Staff was helpful.
Not sure what going on just yet but it almost looks like they are starting to make you pay for parking? New gates installed that weren't working yet.
this was my first time on palmer, terrific layout. fabulous conditions. definitely a must play for anyone in the area
This Palmer course is without a doubt one of the best courses in Arizona!
Another Happy Day On The Course.
FIRST TIME PLAYING THE PALMER COURSE AT WILDFIRE. NICE TEE BOXES, FAIRWAYS WERE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE, WONDERFUL SAND IN THE TRAPS , THE GREENS WERE A LITTLE BUMPY ,BUT ROLLED TRUE. THERE WERE SOME NICE BLIND TEE SHOTS AND UNGULATED GREENS. LOTS OF QUAIL, RABBITS AND A FEW ROADRUNNERS.NICE SHADE. NICE TRACK
The Faldo course is in great shape, both fairways and greens. Pace of play was good and the staff was exceptional.
The only knock was the hard sand in the bunkers.. this could be deliberate
Course condition was outstanding!! Faldo likes bunkers so be prepared for a lot of sand. Tees, fairways and greens were in great shape. $49 was a steal for this course. Outside services gets 6 stars. Down sides no place to eat or drink after the round.
Excellent golf experience
The course is in excellent condition , the fairways and greens are in great shape . The course is not as tight and long as I am used to playing , but it is still a good challenge. I would recommend this course .
First Class All the Way Around
An absolute fabulous track. Beautiful surroundings- lush fairways- great greens and a 100% professional staff. Loved it!
Through Golf Now it was 34.00$ - I had a 10$ coupon through the GN app so I played this place for 24$. Amazing.... Get out there boys- you will love it....
I think this course is what other courses want to grow up to be. Everything here was top notch and first class. The course was in fantastic shape. The fairways were generally lush and somewhat soft. Hard to believe in August in Arizona. The ball stopped fairly quickly, but the fairways were not wet like a lot of other courses this time of year. The greens were smooth and true. They did have some subtle breaks, so you need to pay attention. Carts are newer and have GPS and coolers with ice. This is not a cake walk course either. Depending on which tees you chose it can be quite difficult. Choose well and have fun.
Fantastic Golf Round
A bit hot but played really well. Starter partnered me up with Anna from PXG golf and wow can that girl play some golf. Love those par 5's !!!!!!
