Staff Unpleasant - don't go here

The staff at check in treated us like we were inconveniencing him. I have golfed all over the valley... skip this place. It's a dirt pit, we had to wait at every tee. It was so mismanaged that even by 9am it was backed up. Don't even try to ask a question... I found the guy at the counter seemed eager to put you in your place every chance he could and let you know how unwelcome you are. I'd pass on this place. You will be disappointed.

Disappointed

I know PV isn't the jewel of valley golf but the conditions today were horrid. The fairways are burnt out and the only green vegetation are weeds which are in abundance. Even for a hot deal price it's a disappointment, I play this course quite a bit because it's cheap and a good place to work on irons but the shape it is in now is just sad.

Very slow pace and late start

Started late and we were waiting for two groups after finishing each hole. Fairways had little grass, greens were okay.

Honestly, good value

Look, It’s good value for the course but if you’re lookin for a nice course to play this isn’t the best. Paradise Valley is a little misleading, it’s more of a Central Phoenix at 9pm kinda vibe... no offense.

Hot Deal!

There are plenty of fancier courses in the Phoenix area, but for the average duffer (capital D) this is a great little course. You can find plusher courses elsewhere, but the short layout is fun to play and with a "hot deal" ($10.00 for 18 holes with cart) cannot be beat! And very friendly staff to boot!
