Don’t spend the money to play this course

Looked at the photos and booked a foursome, paid greens fees online. Arrived at the course and the staff was fantastic, but they told us the course was closing for the season. No grass in the fairway and spray painted greens. The course conditions were a joke. Do not waste your money.

Neglected

I live in Casa Grande and have sadly seen this course steadily go downhill. The course has been neglected for several years because of poor ownership, and is either going to auction or is being/has been sold. But whatever is going on, it is not being maintained. I called a friend who lives on the course a couple weeks ago about the conditions and he said they were "poor" but you could score a cheap round. Didn't have anything going today and saw a $20 Hot Deal, so called a friend and thought "How bad can it be"? Well, pretty bad. It appears they simply left the Bermuda to die off and cut it short. No re-seeding. Actually appears no watering at all. Lots of bare patches in the fairways. Bunkers are hard packed. They tried to spruce things up by dying the the fairways and greens "green", but that has mostly faded off. If they don't do something soon, they are going to totally lose the greens; they were putt-able, but resembled the fairways. This is actually a pretty fun track and it is sad to see it in such disrepair. You have to feel for the residents who paid a premium to live on the course. We joked that it's now a 'desert view'. Until ownership clears up, or they decide to make a serious commitment, or whatever the issues are, don't waste your time.

I think this course caught the Covid-19 Stuff

The course is undergoing some big management/owner changes. It has not been watered or overseeded. Stay tuned!

Rough Shape

This course is apparently going through some tough times. There is very little grass on the fairways, the tee boxes are in bad shape as well. The greens are very sparse. There seems to be very little maintenance going on. The hitting area on the driving range has some grass, unmowed but the range itself is all dirt. The range balls are pretty old and don't get washed. The putting green is terrible. I don't think they have done any over seeding. Other courses in the area are green, the grass that there is is mostly dormant. They seem to have discounted the fees to reflect the conditions. Friday morning there were not many people playing......

Course has been destroyed!

They turned the water off and let the course dry completely up, even the greens. We were playing on dry dirt. Apparently there are staff issues and money issues that have caused this problem in the past few weeks. We were unaware and had a 1:00 pm tee time so we couldn’t leave and go somewhere else. Instead of brown spots, the whole course was one giant brown spot.

Golf Now and Golf Pass should take this course off their web sites until it is fully restored as playable. You are taking golfers money under false pretenses by leaving it on there as players will not see the conditions until they are on the course.

In danger of being lost

No overseed this Fall. Greens are unplayable. Chipping areas 95% dirt/hardpan. Entire course hasn't been maintained in quite some time. Unfortunate. Used to be fun track. Bargain rate still makes you feel like you have thrown your money away. Homeowners can't be happy. Sad.

Course Should be Closed or Maintained

New owners have not overseeded or provide responsible course and grounds maintenance. Fairways are brown greens have not been cut lack of watering tee box markers missing or not put in etc... Save your money you'd be better off at a Driving Practice Range than playing this course under current conditions. Was a beautiful course now it's a shame and an eye sore

Terrible Conditions.

The ownership has given up. The course conditions are the worst I have ever endured! Don't play this course until there is a change in ownership. I think they intend to sell the course to real-estate developers but the community is trying to purchase the course to save it.

The Worst Course in AZ I Have Played Ever !!!

This is such a travesty, I had not played this course in the last 5-6 years and it used to be in very good shape, this is now the worst excuse for a golf course I have ever experienced. I cannot believe that TeeOff or GolfNow allow them to be on their website, don't waste your money!! They should have paid us to play this "goat track" !!!!!

This course used to be fun to play, but it leaves a lot to be desired this year. It needs water badly (especially the tee boxes), the greens are extremely slow (they need to be mowed), grass on the fairways is either non-existent or is so deep/thick that it is next to impossible to hit a decent shot. I will continue to play here as part of the Tuesday morning High Chaparral group, but will probably not come back otherwise.

real disappointing

I asked cart guy how course was-said they are under new mgmt again, superintendent has left for Iowa and some holes needed water.
Well he was spot on, holes 1-3 were like dirt and dried grass. THe greens were also dried grass and bumpy all over. tee boxes from Gold on 2 were all dirt.
Then holes 4-14 were ok to fairly descent shape, some fairways actually had to much water on them, but at least the greens were somewhat green and rolled a bit better.
Then on 15, par #, it was all dirt and dried grass again, including the greens.
Then 16-18 were ok to pretty descent.
Only saving grace was we got ahead of the 3 slow guys in front of us at the turn and played the last 9 in just over in hour.
Course needs some work, and I would say even for $30 was overpriced.

What has happened at Mission Royale???

So we've played here multiple times over many years. It is a bit of a drive, but the course is fun and there is usually availability. Perhaps it is due to COVID, or the community has a large snowbird population of Canadians but the course is a disaster. The first 3 holes were completely dry, brown grass, even on the greens. On the 4th hole they evidently found the sprinkler valve and sparse grass at best. The following holes were hit and miss in terms of the grass with some of the greens on the back nine being completely dirt. I'm not sure why they decided to not overseed and why they are not watering but this course usually decent is a mess. Would not recommend for this season spend a little more and play on grass.
