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.

Enjoyable day, but

The staff were great, pace of play was great, the fairways were great, but …. the greens were not in good shape. Perhaps the monsoons had left their mark but they need a lot of work Have played here before and will return

2nd Time at the Grand

Course was in beautiful shape for a mid January round. Course offers a lot of water on the front to challenge your placement and the back puts you in the mountains. Lunch afterwords on the patio overlooking #1 tee box was icing on the cake for us. View on 18 is nothing short of amazing!

Slow, slow play

Have played since 1992 and it is getting worse every year. I like the layout and view. No practice driving range and other facilities makes it a bad value for the price they charge. A resort course for guests only not for golf enthusiasts. If they want to make the course better get marshals that keep the game under 4 1/2 hours. Very few good golfers want to play this course.

NOT SO GRAND

I'm not sure where previous reviewers were playing that they rated this a Good/Excellent golf course..At best it is below average course and definitely not worth what they are charging. Pace of play was so slow that we had 1-2 group back up on every hole. Can't blame the golfers or rangers for poor tee time management. Course condition was so bad that most fairways were roped off with cart path only. Greens were brown in spots and poorly maintained. AVOID THIS GOLF COURSE.

Very nice Desert Mountain Course

Always a challenge and always in reasonably good shape. Fairways are excellent and most tee off boxes and greens also in good shape. The pace of play was 4 hours 15 minutes. We will come back soon

Course in Good Shape

AGGC was in generally good condition. Fairways very playable, though some areas were a bit over watered (thus little roll). Sand traps (which are numerous) were in the best shape I have seen. Tee boxes could use some TLC. Some of the back tees were too close to the edge, with only a club length to swing before hitting adjacent branches. Greens were in good condition (a few exceptions were visible) and fast. Too many roped areas causing some delay in play, though we did finish within 4 hours. Good value with TeeOff booking.

Promising but needs some TLC

Played with a friend, who plays there often, and I must say it was both fun and frustrating. The staff did a nice job making us welcomed but the pace of play was abominable. Not a ranger in site while foursomes lagged behind hitting multiple tee shots and fishing for golf balls. My friend said he has never seen this. However the layout is fun and challenging and would give it another try

tees and greens not great

I like playing AZ Grand-normally- but yesterday the tee boxes were mostly bare of grass where the markers were and the greens were mostly brown and really dried out. Most courses we are playing out the greens are all really green and in great shape, but not here.
Time of play was 4+55, and with it being cold, windy and some off and on rain made for a very long day. Saw no marshal until hole 15 and he said that "members ahead of us were playing extremely slow" and members or not, you have to tell them to pick it up as the group 2 in front of us had fallen 2.5 holes behind the group in front of them and was stacked up behind us.
