The Future's Course is part of the 500 Club golf facility. The 500 Club is a championship length course and the Futures Course was built as a nine-hole, par-28 complement that is ideal for beginners. Although the course is enjoyable for players of all ages and abilities, more advanced players will probably want to use the lengthier and more challenging original 500 Club course. The golf course features beautiful views and excellent course conditions. There are also sand bunkers for some challenge. In the summer months, the 500 Club facility is perfect for families since kids play on a no-fee basis and adults can use the other course.

Fell in love with this course

First time playing here and was surprised at how clean the course conditions were. Greens were perfect and fairways were kept up great. The layout was what surprised me the most. Two holes involving a lake were my favorite, one with a bridge leading to the green on a small island. Amazing view in the afternoon. One hole is really challenging where you're going straight up hill, then you get rewarded coming back down on the next hole. Great golf, I'll be going here a lot.

Scary

Scary to play if you are concerned about Covid.
Absolutely no precautions. Cart sharing mandatory even if you don’t know the other person. Clubhouse no masks or screens even the employees taking no precautions to keep public safe. Pins and ball washers no restrictions only course I’ve played absolutely no precautions. Carts not sanitary even restaurant has no spacing or concerns. Stay away if you want to live

Solid Track

I played this course for the first time last weekend and was pleasantly surprised. The conditions were solid (not stellar. It was a little over-priced ($55pp + cart fees) for the course. I would play it a lot more if it was a little lower!

I Wave The Caution Flag At This Track

My retired snowbird buddies favor this public course near their part of Scottsdale. I tried to embrace their enthusiasm for Tom Sneva's creation. The conditions are good, but not great. The layout is good, but not great. There are a few elevation change holes, but much of the design is desert vanilla. Much of the ground is hard which gives amazing bounces, good and bad, depending on how straight you hit it. I thought $76 for 18 with cart was a bit high, but I guess the almost in Scottsdale address warrants that. The staff is robotic and not quite friendly. I am not a fan of the starter calling names to the tee over the Pro Shop PA system. It lacks the necessary interaction and question answering that good starters always offer. The 19th Hole is really a glorified snack bar and does not feel welcoming. I am glad my buddies enjoy The 500 during their winters in AZ. I think I would like to find a club that has a little more horse power to it.

Not worth

The course is always in decent shape but not worth the amount of month they try to charge you. There are so many other options in the Phoenix that is worth the money.

wear a helmet

my first time playing this course, and i would say on at least 7 times there were people from other holes in my fairway hitting their shots. and i have no idea where they were hitting or how they got there. but this is DANGEROUS. some interesting holes and some pretty ones also, but the greens were really in awful condition.
the greens fee is definitely NOT worth the quality and condition of this course. i will NOT be back

Narrow and bone dry

Very disappointed by the following:

Price was higher than expected. Price quoted on-line did not include taxes.

Was told fairways were wide.That is if you include the hard-pan rough and alleged desert (really just dirt).

Driving into dirt was forbidden and shut off carts.

Course was ultra dry from rough to fairways to greens.

Forced to have bag-boy clean clubs as they were being cleaned while putting on 18th hole. Adds yet another unecessary expense.

Great value

I have played this course for over 15 years and in all that time I have never had a bad experience. As far as golf courses go in the metro Phoenix area, this one is a gem. The staff is incredibly nice.

Mancation circuit

This course has been on my Mancation circuit ever since I played it back in '04. I have always returned to this course on regular basis because it is a fun track. The course is challenging, yet rewarding. The greens aren't ridiculously crazy, the fairways are generous and the elevation changes are mild. The course is a bit out of the way so that really helps with the pace of play. Great course to return year after year.
