Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort
The golf course at the San Marcos Golf Resort boasts an impressive list of past players that includes presidents and celebrities. The golf course is nestled on a property in downtown Chandler that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Although it has a desert landscape, the course is still lush with a canal that runs through it, a lake, and plush Bermuda grass greens, the former two creating water hazards that come into play on several holes. The San Marcos Golf Resort course is challenging with each hole having at least three bunkers. The two most difficult holes on the golf course are two lengthy par 4s, the fourth and the 10th.

Visiting from NY
Absolutely beautiful day to play golf, The young man loading the clubs in the cart was extremely friendly and Steve and the clubhouse was just phenomenal. He hooked me up with some equipment that I was short of and also found out that he lived about an hour and a half from me many many years ago. The course and these two guys are the reason that we will definitely be back, it will be happy to recommend it to many others. Hope to see you all again soon!
Does anyone fix ball marks anymore at this joint?
We had a tee time at 228 and wish we didn't. The pace of play was horrid. People teaching others, folks playing from black when it should be white. Range drive by with his head down. Cart lady gets struck by ball. 7 to 8 min wait per hole. Greens so many fresh ball marks as if nobody know how to fix the. Putting was like going off-roading. Just a complete frustration. Maybe summer at 115 instead of 95 will be better. I hope so.
First grass course in AZ!
I’m a nerd. Had to play it when I read that it was the first grass course in AZ. I definitely recommend it but manage your expectations. The facilities are minimal, including the practice area. It is an open, tree lined course with plenty of sand and a little water. It was well maintained and definitely a value.
If you tend to spray the ball this is not a course for you. If you are to the left or to the right of the green they are typically bunkered on both sides. The greens are narrow and it is very difficult to clear the bunker and keep the ball on the green. Often you end up in the other bunker. Pace of play was painful. We waited on every tee box due to a foursome in front of us that were very slow and did not offer to let us play through. No ranger came around to speed up play. If this is what San Marcos wants the club to be I will not come back.
Nice place, great staff!
Very much like my home town course. The greens were firm and quick. Maybe not the sexiest course, but very playable and a good test of all phases of the game.
