The executive-length course at Continental Golf Club is a popular choice due to the friendly staff, convenient location, and challenging game. The course features undulating greens that are in excellent shape, as is the entire course. Unique mounding surrounds the narrow fairways. A drainage ditch and two lakes also come into play on the golf course. The signature hole is the par-4 18th hole, which calls for not only a tee shot but also an approach shot over water. The course plays fast but it is still quite enjoyable. Continental Golf Club also has practice facilities including a large driving range, putting green, and practice green.

Worst course conditions I have ever seen

Do not waste your time or money on this course. I have never seen conditions so bad on a course. I would give it zero stars if I could. Here is a quick list if things wrong with the course:
- Tee boxes- many of them were not flat and most of them were not mowed and covered in weeds
- Chunks of cut grass from days ago all over the course.
- Forward tees (two beginners in the foursome) had not been cut for days
- Driving range in terrible shape.

I expect slow play for a par three course with beginners and that was there as well. The grass was so long people couldn't find their ball constantly so it added to the wait times at each hole.
If you want a par three course in great shape try the 500 club in North Phoenix both of their courses are great (full regular 18 and par three 9).

Not bad ….Not good either

Played here many times over the years, but have not been back for a few years. All the grass around the fairways needs to be cut and maintained, the tee boxes are very unlevel (as in at tall mound in the middle so you are standing in a hill when teeing off) and also poorly maintained. I have seen this course in better condition so I know they are capable of making it a bit nicer. It is a fun inexpensive executive course , just wish some basic maintenance was done to take it to the next level.

Quick game between little league games

I am new to the sport, so it was a good course for how green I am. Only thing I noticed was the t boxes were a little rough. Also the greens were punched and sanded so putting was a challenge. Still a great course to play

You get what you pay for

Course was mediocre but acceptable for the price. However, the staff was incredibly rude and did not offer the meal that was included with the purchase.

One of the worse experiences golfing I've had.

Went late in day so pace of play was no issue , but other than that nothing positive to say about experience ! Cart attendant was pushing his agendas and not listening to customer requests , clubhouse said unable to provide ice machine broken , all tee boxes were in horrific conditions , multiple greens were damaged , no driving range net to protect golfers playing 1st hole , pushing in golfers to get off course by pullking flags and sitting on holes well before dark , apt neighbors roaming course wt pets and jumping on course for free practice wherever they feel like it !

Good course - Fair price

This course is fun to play during the week, where the pace of play is good. Weekend pace of play is slow. Course is in decent shape for the price. Anyway, always a fun place to play.

Great course to play your irons

Greens and par 4 fairways were in nice condition. The staff were very friendly. The play was super fast- about a 2 1/2 hour round. The price was right for the time of year.
