The course has a lot of par 3's. There are a lot of range balls on 1, 6 and 9. So don't hit it to the right or use a white or yellow ball on those holes. The cart paths are worn out and need repair. But in all, the course is decent for the price and well laid out. I like golfing there. I will return many times in the future.

Not in best condition

We actually had a wonderful time playing this course with some Minnesota friends, but we were pretty surprised at the condition of the course compared to two other courses we had recently played. The ground was hard as rock in places, and wet in others. The greens were extremely bumpy and had lots of crabgrass, or something similar on it. The staff, however, was very friendly, and we were happy to see that they followed Covid protocols.

Overpriced for the value

It nearly $50 to play pasture if you will. Fairways had weeds growing in them you can lose your ball in it. There was no rough in a few missed what was supposed to be rough you were in dirt. I like the layout of the course. it's fine for an executive course. but once you start charging fifty bucks for a round, things ought to get a lot nicer. I hope this helped!

Good value

Started at 1145 got done with 18 at 220. The first 9 was a little slow then we got ahead of a slow twosome at the turn and sped up. Good course. Greens and tees were good Fairways about What you'd expect for a public course in AZ

Paradise Valley

It was our first day in AZ and our first golf in six weeks. We wanted a warmup and a par 61 fit the bill. The course was playable and rough around the edges. Do not expect resort conditions and for the price very reasonable.

Weak

Poor course conditions. The greens were not grass as I understand grass. Do not use a yellow ball - the driving range uses yellow balls and the groundskeepers do not clean up the errant range balls. There are yellow balls all around the course adjacent to the range and this includes many holes on the front nine. No starter was present. When we came through the front nine a foursome decided to jump right in front of us and start on the back nine. We had enough and left. I don’t recommend this course.

Poor man’s golf

It’s a $26 dollar round during peak season so my expectations where pretty low.
