The Encanto Nine Golf Course lies to the west of Encanto Park, and offers an executive-length golf course perfect for anyone who seeks a fast-and-loose round, with tee times passed out first-come-first-served. About an hour and a half is usually all it takes to play through the golf course.

The Encanto Nine Golf Course sits in the heart of Phoenix, and claims the honor of being the third-oldest golf course in Arizona and features a casual vibe, perhaps due in part to the foliage. Abundant natural palms line the golf course, and between them golfers can catch beautiful glimpses of downtown Phoenix. The course was designed by William P. Bell.

speed walk

Course is well maintained and staff courteous. Layout is convenient for walking , Unfortunately, over-booking has created congestion and long waits at tee boxes. Recommend presence of course marshal to facilitate playing tempo. (motorized carts are superfluous, as most fairways are are relatively short and do not include hills or rough terrain) Greens and tees are exceptionally well groomed

Nice 9-hole

I lived the course. The fairways were so green and free of divots. My only issue was the greens were cut so short it felt like putting on floors. Not just our group but several around us had trouble with the greens.
