Phoenician

Expected a bit more given the cost and reputation. Course needs some work and some views off of the course dampened the overall experience.

Great Round

Course was in super shape. The greens were the best of any course we've been to in the last six weeks. We were out early and made it around in three hours. We'll be back.

Resort course

Exclusive type of club. Front 9 wanders through condos (I think) and a few homes. The 10th hole is very far away from the 9th hole. Directions are not very good. The greens were in excellent shape. Looks like they will be putting in more condos around the 18th hole.

A tale of 2 courses within the same tract

The back nine and front nine are totally different ; they have craved up the front nine so to accommodate new buildings . Back nine was very enjoyable , but the front nine was disappointing .

Played better courses for less

They had recently punched the greens. Would have been nice to know that since we paid $140 for the round. I have played better courses for less money. The golf cart was awesome because it had GPS , music, scores. The course itself was pretty straight forward nothing crazy. Would not play again for $140 in June.

Mud Fest

Teed off as the second group off in the morning and played fairly quickly since we only had one group in front of us. Played 18 holes in 3 hours. That is where the compliments will end. The course was in sloppy condition. There was standing water in a few bunkers, the fairways were pure mud in some spots and the rest of the fairways were soaking wet. You would have thought it rained for 5 days with the conditions we played in. The layout is nice and it has some nice views, but just couldn't get into the round since every shot was a mud bath followed by wiping down your club for a minute. Several spots were so wet the club just went right under the ball. On top of that there were grounds crew members out watering all morning. You don't need to water water! For $89 it wasn't what you would expect and highly disappointed. We will not be going back!

Pleasantly Surprised

Was the first time playing here and wasn't sure what to expect. The two nines here offer differing contrast in golf. The front line is flat and winds through the resort. Most of the back nine is up on the hillside and runs through parts of the hillside desert before finishing back within the resort. The course overall was in good condition and greens rolled true. A good value and would play again.

Must Play

Beautiful course and lay out, it has changed a lot since refurbishments of new homes when they turned 27 holes into 18. Fairways and greens are in excellent condition. I expected the staff to be more professional,

Fun course to play

Bag drop guys were great. Pro shop cashier was very friendly and welcoming. We talked about changes in the course since this course used to be 3 nine hole courses and is now one 18 hole. Well managed crew. I thanked all 6 ground crew workers that I passed by while on the course. Greens ,sand ,fairways were perfect today. I thanked them for the hard work with maintaining this beautiful place. Cart girl was very kind and friendly. At the end the cart guys thanked me warmly and invited me to return soon. I will , this is a well run golf course, with nice staff working here at Phoenician.

Very nice...

Lovey place. The entire resort was shut down except the golf course and what a spectacular course it is. Everything is so nice and well cared for. Truly a very upscale locale.
Course is not overly challenging except the greens are pretty. I would play there everyday if I could.

Top Notch

Worth the money worth the time. 9/10 not a bad thing to say, yes there are nicer harder more expensive courses, it has nice views and tricky shots to shape definitely playing again. Went in early stage of covid and still had great service and friendly staff. Greens were fast and fun. A+

Perfect round of golf

My friend and I played The Phoenician for the first time since the redesign. The course looks great and was in outstanding condition. The staff was very friendly even in the crazy times we are in. There were some super fun holes with outstanding views, especially on the back 9 when you get up in the mountains. I am a 10 index and played the front 9, 2 over par. I let the seltzers get the best of me and blew up the back 9, +14!!!

37 on the front, 50 on the back. The back was a little tougher but I also got a little too loose! (He was driving and it was a Friday afternoon so I had a few)

I would highly recommend this course!
