Course is currently on the market for sale and as a result it has been neglected and in very poor shape. Would not recommend to anyone to play

Needs help

I have played the Foothills many times but this is the worst condition have seen it in. The fairways are terrible. The course has so much potential- really sad to see it go down!

Course was in decent shape for late July. Greens were a little slow but consistent.
Tee boxes can use some work, unable to find a level lie on many of them.

Rainy Day but course and service was great!

Thunder storms throughout the Phoenix area during the week. Hoped we would get in a round of golf between storms. Not so lucky and the during the first nine we got very wet. Stopped before back nine and was very comfortable the rest of the round.
In spite of the rain, we had a great round. The course is so much better than the last time we played here! The staff at the entrance where you get your cart, and at the first tee where you check in, are very friendly.
We are looking forward to our next round here and will try to plan better for the weather. ;-)

Not now

Don’t play here for 3-4 months…. Needs a lot of work. Greens are terrible. Fairways are worse.. bunkers are the best place to be. I’ve played here this year and have had some good times but this was a poop show. Hope it comes to for this fall. Too pricey for that quality in the summer.

Dilapidated would be a compliment

The pictures on Golf now of Foothills Golf Course are an absolute lie. The course looked like it was victim to a flood or something. The fairways reminded me of a balding person. Very thin grass, not manicured at all. Overrated, not just from the rain the night before. Many bare and dead spots in the fairways. The greens were furry and pretty slow. It did make chipping onto the green easier. It looks like the course has been neglected. The cart paths were missing asphalt on most holes. Lastly, the gas powered carts were pretty annoying. I'd be embarrassed to present this Golf course to guests if I were a member. Foothills located in a nice neighborhood too. Its a shame because the layout is fair and receptive to good Golf play. Id strongly hesitate to play this course again. Luckily I got a hot deal price as that took off some of the sting of overpaying for this run down course. I know my wife won't go back there again.

Conditions

The fairways are in horrible condition each green was different as far as speed and condition...it was a holiday I guess that can leave an excuse on the pace of play and at least the cart Marshall was very helpful in trying to speed up the pace of play. aside from the beautiful views I would not recommend this course if you want to play..

Please use my $85 green fee to buy the fairways a drink

I used to love this course and wanted to love it again. It has a nice layout with many tee options and great views. Many holes need some tic though. From dried out fairways to random unfinished maintenance projects, the course does not feel near as premium as the rates were for this time of year. 5 minutes from my home, and yet I will continue to travel 30 minutes every Sunday morning to courses in much better condition at much better rates. I hope they can bring it back. I'll take another look in the fall.

Hidden Gem in Phoenix

While turf conditions were typical but tolerable thin fairways in June in the desert, the greens were solid with quick speed, great course design and reasonable green fees with good customer service will make us return and should attract more golfers from Phoenix.

Dirt Patch

How can people say this course is average . !st hole fairway flooded with water around the green allowing no shots to make it to the green . The other 17 fairways are water starved . Hitting fairway shots off dirt. The fairways are BROWN. It is like they scalped the fairways and are ready to over seed for the winter grass and it is only JUNE . Moving onto to the greens they are green but need cutting because they are so slow . Really have to wack your ball to get it moving toward the cup. . Tee boxes are so uneven . Need leveling . No cart person 105 degrees outside . The clubhouse and bar is closed Mon - Thurs . After playing this course you need a good stiff drink and the bar is closed . The person taking the bags and the starter were exceptional in their job. Overall I would not recommend this course till winter arrives and hopefully you can afford to play it .
