The Arizona Grand Resort (formerly known as Phantom Horse Golf Club) boasts a challenging golf course, blending desert target golf with traditional links, playing par-71 over 6,336 yards, and a 7,000-square-foot practice green with a bunker and chipping area for a pre-round tune-up.

After a round at Arizona Grand Resort, head to an onsite drinking or dining spot: there's Mexican food, and then there's Southwestern dancing, and then there's a sports bar so you can catch up with someone else's game indoors or outdoors on the patio.

The Arizona Grand Resort also offers several packages, ranging from stay-and-play to family deals to getaways for women to romantic suite packages, complete with breakfast in bed.

Terrible

Course was not well maintained - shoddy tee boxes, bumpy greens and the whole course is littered with duck poop. Back nine’s layout gets a bit interesting but for the price of $120, it felt like we were getting ripped off at a local poorly maintained muni. Better to pay more and play elsewhere. All staff members were nice except for the lady at check in.

If you can’t find anywhere else.

Back nine is not bad but front nine layout is awful. Conditions could use a huge improvement. Greens were Rough. But it is golf so if you need a place to play it will suffice but beyond that stay clear if you can.

Found the course to be in less than acceptable shape with rough and bare fairways. Some tee boxes needed reseeding. Pace of play was unbelievably slow and we became so frustrated that we quit after 12 holes. I have played this course in the past and was looking forward to playing again. I was very disappointed.

Such an incredible course

Incredible is all I can say!!! Fairways are excellant, greens are quick. Front nine is fairly open, back nine is tight needing a long tee shot to reach fairway. Overall, an incredible, fun course to play!!

Fantastic Views

Several holes from the tee box had beautiful views. The greens could have been in better shape. Overall it was a great course, we played in four hours and felt the value was very good. I would recommend it and will play it again.

Beautiful Challenging Course

Tremendous facilities, excellent course conditions and friendly staff adequately describe this course. The course is challenging both from the layout standpoint and from a physical standpoint too. A lot of water on the front 9 (which was fun) and a lot of elevation and uphill walking on the back 9, which was not so much fun. I would love to play this course again but wife will not. Too physically demanding for her.

Overall course condition, especially the greens and tee boxes was in poor condition. This used to be a top quality, well maintained course, but currently is not.

No driving range

No driving range. 3 mats to hit into net. Tiny practice green with 3 cups. Took 4 and half hours for round. Target golf. Very tight. For the money you can find a better course.
