Inexpensive

Good inexpensive golf. A little rough but for people who go a lot and want to save money. My problem was I paid more through Military Tee Times than they charge at course.

Nothing changed in the last 12 years...

Didn't played here in the last 5 years - nothing changed except it is much more expensive. I remember when we paid 10$ and later 12$ for 9 holes. Good times...
I would not play here for more then 16$. The Tee boxes are still not level and hard to put a tee down. You better hit the greens or you are challenged with a bare lie for your up and down! Pace of play was 2 h 09 min for 9 holes. Still enjoyed to play here since it brings back a lot of good memory's....

Little gem

Had fun playing here for the first time. Good for a beginner like me. Fairways were nice and so were the greens. Played at a very comfortable pace, never felt rushed. I like this Course and will play it again with a friend

THIS IS WHAT MUNI GOLF IS ALL ABOUT! THANK YOU FOR BEING WHAT YOU ARE, WE NEED MORE OF THIS!!!!

First time playing, didn't know what to expect. I FREAKING LOVE THIS PLACE! Checking in was quick and easy, staff was super friendly! Yes if you have your nose up in the air all day, you'll hate it. But, if you're taking your kids out, teaching or just wanting to get a quick round in with some buddies this is the place! I LOVE the way they stack it up on the #1 tee box and "get in where you fit in" is the BEST way to start a muni course! Can't wait to go back! Yes the driving range is short and the course isn't in "tour" conditions, but this is a place to get people EXCITED about golf and GROW THE GAME!

Great if you have nothing to do the rest of the day

We didn't tee off until almost 25 mins past our tee time because they were so far behind. We then were forced to be paired with another two-some because they were so far behind. It took 90 mins to play 5 holes and at that point our entire foursome quit after one of us got hit by a ball. I would recommend going mid week when it hopefully would be less crowded. Friday at 1pm was a bad choice.

Straight shots to the greens but bring your short game!!! Greens are REALLY nice and pin placement was tough. Driving range is nice. Terrific value!

Convenient and cheap, but very mediocre

One of the few courses we have actually been able to get on in the Phoenix metro, and it’s obvious why. This is definitely a bottom tier, limited golf options course. BORING layout, painfully slow pace of play (1:50 for nine holes on a SHORT course with nowhere to waste time looking for balls).

Greens were in good condition (fast and smooth), but the rest of the course in mediocre condition — not terrible, but very dry with sparse grass in the fairways and none off the fairways.

If we lived in Phoenix and had to play courses like this, we’d give up the game.
