Designed by Scott Miller, this course is located in the southeastern foothills of the McDowell Mountains and is an innovative departure from the “target” style courses constructed in the desert in the recent past. Its layout takes advantage of a variety of land features: rolling hills, ridgelines, lush valley and washes, with a backdrop of prominent mountain outcroppings. In many instances, long extended views into untouched desert landscapes and area landmarks, such as Camelback Mountain, will be afforded. It is a strategic design, which asks the player to make choices relative to skill level.

Worst greens in AZ

We want you to know that our agronomic team is working tirelessly to get the golf course back to the exceptional conditions Eagle Mountain Golf Club is known for. The greens are recovering quickly and should be back to normal by the end of July.

Greens need work

The course conditions where ok for the money. The worst part was the greens. Also they’re doing lots of bunker work.

not a good value - the greens were in the worst shape of any course i’ve ever played in AZ in 30 yrs. also had bunker work in progress with areas roped off and closed. I would not recommend this course until Troon has at least a year to turn it back around

Playable challenging mountain course

They are reworking the bunkers and some of the fairways - so conditions not ideal now but it did not detract from enjoying a great round.

Upside

This is always a fun course, and the condition of the greens didn’t change that. I saw many reviews as to how bad of shape the greens were in and had to see for myself. Are they in good shape? No, they aren’t, but I attribute that to attempting to manipulate the winter grass in to living longer. This year was a tough transition for golf courses. The tees, fairways, and areas around the greens were more than solid so I have no complaints. Most folks leaving poor reviews couldn’t 2-putt from 45 feet regardless of the condition of the greens. I’d recommend this course to anyone who enjoys a good, solid challenge as it is a second shot golf course.

Bad Greens!!!

The course was generally in good shape EXCEPT for the bad greens!!!
tee to green the course was in very good condition and I could live with the numerous bunkers under repair but the front nine greens were terrible and the back nine, while they were somewhat better they still need attention. not sure if a fungus got em or what.

Poor Course Mgmt

GREAT COURSE LAYOUT. So many burned out areas in fairways they couldn’t mark as “ Ground Under Repair “. Greens so Burned Out we had to invoke “Max 2 Putts” LUMPY & BUMPY

Yikes

Played June 2021. Don’t PLAY even if they give you a free round.

Find a new greens keeper ASAP. This is by far the worst greens I’ve ever played. Such a beautiful course ruined by un-puttable greens. The staff has sorts of excuses why their so bad. STOP, no more excuses. It never rains in Phx, turn on the water like the other courses do.

Greens

The greens had a major issue and are the worst I've ever seen. A couple of employees said they had some "blight". They have painted many of them green but in a lot of cases you are putting on what is essentially hard wood flooring. There is no grass in many parts or it's brutally clumpy. It's not worth $10 playing here until they get it back in shape. The fairways were below average as well. I really like this place but call ahead before booking.

I paid $100 to play this course and the greens weren’t even greens. It was like putting in the desert. I loved the other aspects of the course just feel like I got screwed out of a $100 unfortunately

Greens are need to be replaced

My wife and I enjoy this course a lot and we played it a few times but this weekend when we played course is in need of desperate repair. The greens were so bad it looked as if they painted it green. Areas around the green dried up in crackling and the sand traps were so dried up that you couldn’t even make a mark and then with your shoes.
The views are amazing and the layout is very fun to play we were looking so forward to playing this course and walked off very disappointed.

Blight Issues on Every Green

We were told a by starter that a couple of greens had blight. That was not correct EVERY Green had blight! Holes 17 & 18 had construction equipment actively working on course in line with greens. Worst was full price was charged...I have played this course over the years. This time was the worst condition ever...Would like a refund!
