The sun shines 350 days a year in Phoenix and you can enjoy this factor at Ahwatukee Country Club. "Ahwatukee" is Crow Indian for "house of dreams", but this could easily be the "golf course of dreams".

The semi-private Ahwatukee Country Club offers an 18-hole golf course designed by John Bulla in 1974 that is open year-round and includes a driving range, as well as a cart included in the greens fee. The golf course is par-72 and measures 6,713 yards from the championship tees.

The Ahwatukee Country Club golf course features a fairly wide-open layout, but has out-of-bounds areas on either side of the fairways - including some with houses, so watch out for those windows - as well as water hazards on some holes. The putting greens play fast.

After a tight front nine on the Ahwatukee Country Club golf course, things open up on a razor-sharp par-4 dogleg 10th hole, with no chance to cut corners: there's a towering forest to the left.

Testing patience

Over seeding in progress so I knew the course would not be in normal condition.
Shot gun start tournament going on and no one who booked a tee time knew about it. My tee time was 12:22 did not get off till 1:00 Course was over booked.
Took a little over 3 hours to play 9 holes. Paid way too much money to have had to go through the wait. Waited 10 to 16 minutes on every tee box Would not have been able to finish the back 9 before the sun would set. Many players in front and behind my group were becoming extremely
frustrated and quit playing. Not a Marshall in sight. Would not attempt to play this course again at this time. Years ago this was a beautiful course and was well maintained. Has not been the same for over 10 plus years.

Baaaahhd. Baaahhhd

Course conditions were deplorable and not noted during booking. Dirt tee boxes and dead spots on the greens.

Asked if the starter would call us, the shop assistant said she, “she didn’t know.” The carts were filthy with dirt, bird poop on the scorecard, etc. Starter had a poor attitude. The bev cart girl was very friendly and came around three times, good.

Good course overall

Nice conditions. Traps had sand for once. Fringe still a little difficult to find your ball. Greens had some skull parts. Overall, good effort. Let's see what happens with overseed.

Bad

About a 45 minute delay due to a lack of available carts, and no staff seemed to care about the problem, almost as if they had expected it and dealt with a similar situation before. No refund was offered despite the long wait, and an inability to regulate pace of play meant long waits at every tee box. Finally, the course was not well kept. I’d rather pay someone $50 to punch me in the face than play here at that price point again.

Needs Help

People continue to provide best part of this course, which itself needs much help. Rough is now being cut in anticipation of over seeding, but we hope that it, the rough, will get some of the new seed. Back 9 greens still need help, could gain from the overseeding process.. Two players

Had a couple slow players in front of us which slowed play because fairways were off limits, but the course was in good shape. Will definitely play it again.

Ok for the price

Ok for a reasonable weekday round. Greens were good and fairways ok. There were a lot of potholes full of water all over the course and wet areas which is odd in the desert. It seemed really overwatered. It’s an older course so you get what you pay for

Slowest Round of Golf Ever

Played this course on Saturday for the first time ever. I am not sure if I will ever come back. The round took 5 and a half hours. They allowed a 5 some of beginner's play two groups ahead of us. The starter was very rude about it when anyone asked about it. The layout here is very basic and straight forward. If the pace was better the price would be right.

Ahwatukee Country Club, if you are trying to improve your pace of play I would start with getting a ranger and a starter who can read a clock so he can get people out on time.

Not worth the price

I spent 45$ on this course, however it should be more like a 15-20$ course. Theres divers everywhere, very muddy (for not raining in weeks) and some of the sprinklers were on in the middle of the day. the grass is completely torn upon and some of the greens and had large dirt patches throughout.

Very good value

Despite summer temperatures in the 100s, we enjoyed playing the course with its mix of challenging terrain, thick rough and some water. Be prepared to spend time looking for balls in the thick rough. Although some greens and fairways were not perfect, we enjoyed their extended greens as you could practice your long putts to the maximum..
