Arizona Traditions Golf Club offers a parkland style golf course that has panoramic views of the White Tank Mountains. An enhancement project for the course in 1998 put in an abundance of trees, shrubs, and flowers on the course. Although it has a short layout, the golf course is quite challenging with difficult sloped greens and rolling fairways lined with forestry. Rolling hills, extensive greenside and fairway mounding, and water hazards provide an interesting game. Five sets of tee boxes ensure that golfers of all skill levels can enjoy the course. Arizona Traditions Golf Club also has a driving range, chipping area, and putting green for golfers to use.

AZ TRADITIONS

Fun course I've been playing here for many years. I never saw the beer cart, that was disappointing! Carl the starter is a great guy, the greens were a little dry, fairways too for that matter! But heck, its only 20 bucks to play 18

Always Love This Course

The staff always is the most impressive part of this course. So personable and feels like they’re working their dream jobs. The course was great, you could tell it’s obviously not their ‘prime time’ season but definitely one of the better kept courses over the summer, especially in Surprise. If you’re deciding between a couple courses and this one, play this one.

What happened

I hadn't played here in a while and used to play here all the time... my wife and I decided to try again.
We are NOT slow players and frankly both play pretty well... me low 80s and her high 80s or better. They just send singles and twosome out at random, there are people driving up on you and trying to pass constantly trying to get in a two hour round.
By the third hole (par 3) we pulled over to let a twosome go through after teeing off, the twosome said sorry the group behind us are pushing us, meanwhile the ranger who's driving around picking up balls picks up my ball to the left of the green while he sees us all there after teeing off and after I yelled "dint pick up that Bridgestone"... too late.
He comes over to us to apologize and hand me my golf ball, now the next twosome is coming through and they said "we didn't want to wait on 10 so we came around the front again" this is the twosome pushing... do you think the ranger would say something... nope, too busy thinking about golf ball hunting.
We played on to witness young party groups driving up on greens and all over the place, we were on 8 and the sixsome (yep 6) on the 6th hole with their stereo blasting and all out there yelling and singing held up groups behind them... it was a joke and we left after 9 holes.

Years ago I never thought AZ traditions would turn into this kind of course but it has, I guess when Villa Depaz and Falcon golf course closes this is where they go.

Now two weeks later mid July at 115 degrees they raised their rates to $35 after 11::00... brilliant, at that price I will go to a better quality course.

Fairways need improvement

Love traditions layout, my favorite course! Fairways are quite brown and some greens beat up. Tee times too close together, waited on foursome in front of us entire round. Staff is great, Kelly, Carl, and Pam are super friendly!
