The Aquila Golf Course facility offers two golf courses; one is a championship length course while the other is a par-3, nine-hole course. The championship course provides an excellent game of golf for an affordable price. There are scenic views of mountains and downtown Phoenix as well as a challenging layout featuring several water hazards and bunkers. Although the terrain is rather hilly, it is still relatively walkable. The course has an excellent range of holes that each have a unique character, the par 5's are especially notable. Native grasses and wildflowers are also present on Aquila's Championship course, further adding to its natural beauty.

Great course design

For a muni, this course has a ton of interesting holes. Short, strategic par fours and long, demanding par fours in addition to some challenging par threes. Conditions were very good. Ball checked up and greens fairly fast. Plenty of room to spray it on most holes. We played gold tees due to recent surgery. Can’t wait to play from silver and possibly black tees. I will certainly go back although it is 45 minutes from my house.

Tough course. Slow pace.

Greens were hard and fast. You had better keep it in the fairway. If your not hitting your driver well. Leave it in the bag and play from forward tees. Lol. No jk. This course can play very long. Course handicap was 12 and I shot 12 strokes over that. I was a single paired with another single and double. They were good partners. Had white tops up our butt with nowhere to go. 4hr 45 min round.

Great value

We played on a Monday afternoon in about 4:15, so pace wasn't too bad. Course had some nice elevation changes and the greens were relatively quick. Played the walking rate of $49, so at that price will definitely come back.

Tees and Fairways are nice but fairways were cut very tight and were quite fast. (Good runout). Greens were also cut crazy low and it didn't look like there was that much grass. These were more like summer conditions than the typical lusher conditions of winter. Very skinny track which is quite challenging and fun. Bunkers also had a decent amount of sand (not compact dirt) :)

Pace of play nightmare

Pace of play was absurdly slow. After four hours and forty-five minutes (in carts!) we only made it through 16 holes before it was dark. When we got back to the club house it was completely locked up (including bathrooms) and no staff was anywhere to be found.

Ideas for improvement: hire a ranger to enforce faster pace. Make cards that explain pace of play along with how to play faster and put them in all your carts. Do not completely shut down your entire operation while paying customers are still on the course.

Great Value, but needs Rangers to Keep Pace

Greens are very fast without much break. Fairway hazards are occasionally in play. Many 300 yard drives and artificially low scores with rough being dead or in hybernation. Rangers are really needed to keep pace of play.

Top notch course

After playing courses like Legacy and The Raven in this area Aguila is by far a better course and the best value by a long shot. You’ll also save a lot of money playing here instead!!! The course played firm and fast and the greens were spectacular. We walked and played in 4hrs. The practice facilities are great with multiple putting greens and chipping areas. There’s even a par 3 course that’s in equally good shape. Highly recommend this course to anyone!
