Nice Links Course

Fair pricing, great people and 19th hole for refreshments, cart person made the rounds nicely. fairways and fringe to greens in good shape. Ranger needs a course in time management ... We were 2:10 at the turn and finished in 4:15. Just because the group in front pulled ahead, we were not holding up those behind us.

Great course to walk and enjoy the Phoenix "winter" weather.. Flat and wide open. Greens and fairways in great shape. Very few hazards.

This isn’t the old Encanto

I’ve been playing Encanto for 50 years now and have never seen the course in this good shape. It’s amazing. The green’s were in perfect condition and were as fast as any green I’ve ever played. The tee’s and fairway’s were perfect too. My hat’s off to the City of Phoenix for restoring this classic.
