Then course needs a lot of work
This course is not ready it needs a lot of work especially the greens.
My rating is 0 and we only played 4 holes because of then condition.
This course is a message. Nightmare greens
This course has a no cooler rule that caused my family to become dehydrated and had to leave the course early. 100 degree weather and you must rent a cooler from them that only holds 3 bottles. This is after I just dropped over $300 between tee times and pro shop purchases... They wouldn't let me bring my cooler that only had ice and water. Plus they didn't have enough golf balls for sale. The staff was friendly enough But it didn't make up for the terrible greens and asinine rules. If there Was a beverage cart coming around I could understand the no cooler rule. We won't be back
The staff are the friendliest and kindest at any course I’ve ever played.
The course could use a major amount of TLC starting with a lawnmower on the tee boxes. Then the fairways. And the greens need a ton of work. This is like a municipal course not a casino course.
Don’t go There
Course is horrible! A cow pasture would be better. Unfortunately management hasn’t been able to maintain any kind of consistent staff so the course has turned into a cow pasture, even the greens.
For this time of the year when fairways in the mountains are dormant the greens are in great shape. The Greens really held approach shots.
Excellent layout. Too bad course has no maintenance. No green grass to be found. Fairways and greens all dead bermuda. No wonter seed planted. Bunkers have little sand. This course has the potential to be excellent but with no care from management down this course is in horrible shape. Really sad.
Course is great layout
Needs different grass on fairways. Needs a food service. Use to have water available on the carts and on the course. Both gone now.
The course is still improving. Not bad for winter conditions, but water for the golfers on the course would be helpful.
Very friendly staff, fairways are in pretty poor shape
Very friendly staff, fairways are in pretty poor shape As are a a lot of the greens
Apache Stronghold ok - enjoyable
Love course layout. Natural desert type course. Needs some tender loving care. Not place to golf if you enjoy relaxing after your round with your playing partners and a beer or two. “clubhouse” was closed when we completed our round and were only cars remaining.... almost appeared that person came back to golf course to put our two carts up for the day.
This course has a beautiful setting. However, it needs new grass, improved bunkers and at least some gravel on cart paths. Employees are friendly and worth going to at least once maybe. A few more signs to help direct hole to hole would be an improvement. Unfortunately, the management switched the hole numbers and they no longer line up with any GPS. However, to compensate they do have GPS in the carts.
Love the layout but....
The course has a real strong layout and it very scenic. The staff is outstanding and the course just excites you with it's architecture and vistas. But you need to put aside your need for pristine conditions and enjoy the course.
There is no over seeding, other than the tees. The greens putt true and are of average speed. The fairways are dormant and the bunkers are well, abysmal. There is no 19th hole and no water on the course.. The greens are over watered and that creates some very soft conditions short of the green.
But, the course is fun and the holes are well designed and a joy to play. There were 12 of us and we had a great time. We thought the greens were fine, the views were solid and the course layout was outstanding. We all agree that we would be back and accepting of the conditions. Make the drive and give it a try.
I can see efforts of improvements and hope this continues. The Tom Doak design is a hidden gem. Turf conditions could use some attention especially with the over watering of the greens and approaches. There is no bouncing the ball onto the greens with the wetness. Greens putt surfaces have shown improvement and roll nicely. Rudy from outside services is one of a kind and is a real plus to the operation. Cristina is the GM and has a great vision for the course. Keep up the good work.
Apache Stronghold November
Played 18 through golfnow for $25, regular green fees are $45 at the moment. Course was cart path only due to the recent rain so course was muddy. Fairways are turning yellow but the greens were ok and rolled fine. The course itself is challenging with strategic corners and angles, carts have gps. Keep it in the fairway and you’ll be ok. Par 3s appeal to all skill levels and are fun. The negatives is that they do not offer complementary water bottles on the course and their snack back / bar is closed right now..
This is a great course. Today the fairways were wet in many places. Made for mud on ball most to the time. Greens were very good. Sand traps were typical Arizona, terrible. Staff weas very friendly and helpful.
Stronghold has a great design! Such a shame that it is not kept up. All but one green were quick and fairly smooth. For $30, I think it is a good value but you probably need to move the ball in the fairway. Last, driving range was closed and it is a fairly common occurrence.
Good Course with Average Maintenance
Good course design overall.
Greens are getting better but still need more work.
The weeds and bushes in front of the tee boxes need to be cut immediately, as they represent an unintended hazard that interferes with drives! Some are over five feet high.
