Course for retiree
My group of 8 decided to play on a Sunday afternoon. Most courses around Avondale / Gooodyear did not have tee time available. I expanded my search and found Desert Springs and had a reasonable price for non-residents. Course was in a big community with multiple courses. This course maybe designed for 50 and over retirees. As soon as we got to parking lot, a few of residents/members gave us the looks like we were in the wrong place. It’s one thing if it’s just me noticing it but all 8 of my guys felt unwelcome. The clubhouse lady was very nice and again with some patrons inside giving us the looks. We decided to just ignore it and enjoy our day. After our second hole, the Marshal visited us and looks like he was tracking our pace of play. My group are good players and knows golf pace of play. On our 6th hole, we see the same marshal driving towards us on the tee box. It was my turn to hit my tee shot so I stopped to wait for him to clear. He then drove his cart just right front off the tee box and parked, pulled his tee sheet and waved me to tee off. I play a high draw so I tent to aim more to the right but with him in front of me to the right, I had to change my aim and over drew my tee shot to the left. This was not the last visit by this marshal as we saw him again on the 8th or 9th hole. All this visit , not once he asked or told us we were behind pace. What was the reason for all this visits?
If your going to open your course to the public, I would hope everyone is treated the same way. The course clubhouse, practice facility and the course itself was great but the marshal and the members are not too welcoming of random brown skin folks. never have I been so uncomfortable and upset on a public golf course.

This course is fairly open and pretty easy overall. I have not played this course for various reasons for a few years. I see that the summer price has gone up post covid and after renovating one of the other courses here. The course was very green for summer. The fairways had plenty of grass. There were a few burn spots but nothing drastic. The rough was very thick, long and dark green. You do not get much roll out in the fairways, but I would rather have plenty of grass under the ball than extra roll out. The only take away was the putting surface. They still have not recovered from aeration. They were bumpy, jumpy and lumpy. You had to hit a firm putt and just get close to the pin. The ball would sometimes turn harshly as it slowed down.
Very playable for high handicaps
Have not played this course in several years, mainly because of the expensive green fees. We did manage to book a rate that we were OK with. Probably the resident twilight rate, so decided to take some friends that had not previously played the course. We did have a later tee time and were not sure if we would be able to finish, but the pace of play was fine. Not a lot of character for the course, but still enjoyed the round. Would play it again for the right price, but not the rack rate. There are more courses in the area that are better courses for less money.
Played for the first time here and the course was in awesome shape. Very wide fairways and lots of desert. Water on a few holes and some nice mountain views. Teed off just before 2 so we got a great rate and we got around in 4 hours on a Sunday. It was getting dark but I was surprised we got in 18 holes. Definitely going back.
First time here and it was a really nice course. Started off not too we’ll because of those 2 older ladies at the front desk because they had a little attitude but thank God for John which made our day a lot better. Everything else was awesome after we met John.
Those 2 older ladies in the front complicated everything for us and almost ruined our first time being there till John made our day but after John took care of us our day went beautiful. Everything was AMAZING just the 2 ladies were the down fall part. FIX THE ATTITUDE AND RESPECT YOUR CUSTOMERS
BIG BIG THANKS TO JOHN AT THE STARTER STATION.
It being a Saturday and as busy as it was play was slow and back nine. But course was in great condition and was challenging. Loved playing here
Wonderful course, great service ,great shape, brand new golf carts, A big thumbs up.
This is a golf course that I can play every day! Great condition, great pace of play, friendly staff.
I play this course during the summer a number of times. Total enjoyment!
Difficult but Fair
Room to hit the driver. but plenty of shot making required. Great SC West course. Always worth the drive out here.
Nice layout and condition.
Excellent course and friendly staff.
All you can ask for.
Really enjoy playing this course. This course is in good condition almost every time I have played. The greens are still recovering from being punched but they are rolling pretty good.
Desert Springs is one of my favorite courses. We happened to play at a time just prior to the course aerating, so the conditions weren't the best and the bunkers were not maintained. Nonetheless, Desert Springs remains one of my favorite courses!
