Sad this place has gotten this bad

I have been playing this course for about the last eight years off and on due to it having good value. I don’t believe I will be going back unless they sell the place to somebody who cares enough to run a golf course. This place has so much character And has now just been neglected to the point of it being an eyesore. I believe the county owns this property, and the fact that they have let it get this rundown is in my mind a waste of taxpayer money

Pro Shop - Ugh!!

Poor communication skills
If you can get past the poor communication and condescending attitude of the pro shop staff, you can look forward to a great layout, fun to play, neglected executive golf course

The course is fun and acceptable for the price point.

I had a blast at this little par 3. At this price point I think its perfectly acceptable and a great little spot.

Neglected :-(

This is one of the most fun executive course in the valley. When priced between $10-$16 its a good value. Unfortunately, you will spend most of your time looking a around in dismay wondering why it is so so so neglected. A Real shame :-(

Decent Course for the Money

Decent course for a quick round. Keep in mind for the price point, you get what you pay for. I can normally get 18 in with two people in around 3 hours or so.

A Cow Pasture With Good Greens

Tees and greens are the best part of the course, the fairways not so much. Greens are cut and roll well. Tees are mostly grass. Fairways are a combination of grass and weeds and are generally hardpack so the ball rolls a little farther than normal. Back nine seems to be better shape than the front nine. Yardage seems to be correct. I recommend the course as a good place for a practice round or to play with a beginner. Friendly staff and a good eating area. Fore!

Bad management On

On course bathrooms and drinking fountains in scary conditions. Pi n placements are a joke. Big greens and the stick them on a slope or very close to the edge. Like 5 feet. No fun

Greens

The course is in much better condition than the last time I played it. The greens were a little slow though. It made it hard the get the ball close on chips and long puts.

Nice Little Course

Paradise Valley was a nice surprise. Great place to tune up your short game with all the par 3s. Used all my clubs but my driver and 3 wood. Well worth the money. Staff was super friendly and made us feel welcome. Would recommend to golfers of most skill levels.

Course conditions

This course needs some serious maintenance. The fairways are turning brown in some areas. Golfers are throwing their beer cans on the ground. Lots of wildlife that come right up to you.( that’s not really a problem). Lots, and I mean lots of weeds in the rough. Easy to lose balls amongst fallen leaves and weeds.

Fun Time

Being a beginner golfer I appreciate a lot of par 3’s. The course is fun although not in the best shape. The specials they are running are nice.
