Tres Rios GC at Estrella Mountain Park (formerly known as Estrella Mountain Golf Course) is rich with dense forestry including eucalyptus, mesquite, and pine trees as well as cottonwoods. The course has a parkland-style layout with rolling fairways lined with trees and undulating greens that are medium-sized and fast. To add more challenge to the golf course, water hazards and bunkers come into play on several holes. The par-4 seventh hole is considered the most difficult driving hole on the course. There are stately trees off the tee and the second shot is to a narrow sloping green. Tres Rios GC at Estrella Mountain Park features multiple tee boxes for a variety of different golfing options.

Horrible Cow pasture

First of all they are working on the course. Fairways are dead and punched. No putting green or chipping area. They are charging $36 dollars when $15 is what it’s worth now. Total disappointment with the course. I won’t be back this summer you can bet on that.

Rapidly improving course

I enjoyed my first round here. There is a new management company. Took over in the fall.
I understand the course was in terrible condition. The fairways grass was in great condition and greens very good. A bit slow for my s taste. There are many projects left to do. Improved cart paths and signage would help.
I look forward to returning to see the improvement.
Don’t let my remarks stop you from trying this course at $ 52.00 including cart it a great value.

NEW COURSE!!!

I heard to course was under new ownership so i tried it out...phenomenal turn around!! After the old ownership neglected the course and the customers the new owners have set a new standard!. This is some of the best grass coverage, tee to green anywhere in the West Valley..new sand in the bunkers and a friendly club house and snack bar staff. The new GM said they will be expanding the driving range to include a teaching program to include a Jr program as well as club repair. I look forward to seeing what they do.....I'LL BE BACK

Unbelievable

If your ball falls on the fairway consider it gone. The manager is horrible. He literally told us to speed it up when we were waiting on the people in front all morning. They set up the tee times spacing horrible. That manager should not be allowed to work there. There is a reason they are closing down!

Horrible

Prepare to loose your ball on the ruff. The ruff is 6in tall. Manager came up to us and said we need to hurry when each group was right behind each other. We were behind a 5 person group. The manager is an a hole. Each group had 3 minutes to play. Even when they reopen We will never return to this course they should stay closed.

This course is terrible.

Do not book. You will lose your ball anywhere in the rough. They need to mow the grass. Terrible course conditions. I will never play here again.

Still in Good Shape

Watering the course. The type of grass they have in the ruff makes it very difficult to find your ball. I last 3 and found 9. The greens have been aerated and are filling in. Makes putting a little more challenging. They were out mowing today which was nice. Note course is closing at 1PM, So you need to be in by then.

No safe during pandemic

In the current pandemic situation, Tres Rio has decided to charge an extra $5 per person to have their own cart. Every other course in the area promotes players to not share carts to keep everyone safe, yet Tres Rios is all in it for the money. VERY disappointed in this decision. I will go to Wigwam, El Mirage, Sundance or Coldwater to golf safely and pay less at a much better course.

Tres Rios play

Tres Rios is a very fun course to play, it has everything you want as a goler. If you hit the ball long it plays great, has really good par 3's. You can't beat the affordability of this course.
The greens are better than most expensive courses

Good for the price and would go back

Sometimes hard to tell where the next tee box was. Most greens really thick grass some were a little worn down. Good value for the price and would play here again.
