FOUNTAIN FAN

I am a part time Mesa resident and an 8.5 handicap. This course has an excellent combination of par 3's and a few par 4's and even a par 5, so you can definitely use every club in your bag. The staff is always very helpful and welcoming. The conditions were very good for the time of year with the extreme heat in the Phoenix area. This course is one of my Greater Phoenix favourites to work on my iron play and short game. A wide variety of par 3 lengths to play, a few well placed bunkers around the greens, great practice facility, and excellent pace of play. I would highly recommend this course to players of all levels, who are either just starting out, or want to sharpen their iron play and short game!

Good course, very good conditions

On a fairly hot day, I started early and did not see another group until tee 11. Course was really in good shape, greens were a bit longer than normal, but that is ok and they were very consistent. If they were cut shorter, they would have burned up. Tee boxes & fairways were in good condition for Arizona summer. Tee 10 was overrun by crawling weeds, others were fine. Green skirts were in very good condition also. Some fairways were pretty narrow and I may have hit a house or two ; (. REstrooms every 6 holes is nice. Drinking water on all holes is very nice! Ladies in the grill were really kind & attentive, prices in grill were wonderful. Very nice day.

Pleasantly Surprised for an Executive Course

First Time to Play this Executive Course. Happy to pull out my Driver on a couple long holes. Greens a tad slow for my liking, but hey, its summer in Arizona. The course was in Excellent Shape and I really appreciated the abundance of large Trees thru-out the course providing shade. Will play this course again... great for improving the short game! My playing partner and I truly appreciated the course! Kudos!

Great place to play

The golf pro was so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. The greens are excellent and the course is in very good condition.
We also enjoyed eating lunch at Birdies. Great menu, good prices and large cold glasses of beer on tap.

Great executive course

There are several executive length courses in the East Mesa area and I feel this one is in the best condition. Both the fairways and greens are both in very good condition across all 18 holes. Staff are very friendly and amenities off the course are also quite nice.

Definitely recommend if you are looking for a shorter layout track in East Mesa.
