Granite Falls Golf Club offers two courses, the North Course and the South Course. Rolling hills sprinkled with stately trees and large greens define both courses. The South Course has a challenging layout that appeals to all skill levels with four sets of tees and subtle but effective bunkering. Water comes into play on 10 holes. The golf course offers a scenic finishing hole that has two lakes, joined by a cascading waterfall with a fountain in the background. In addition to the two golf courses, Granite Falls Golf Club boasts extensive practice facilities including a short game area with a practice bunker, two putting greens, and a grass driving range with target areas.

Great course, tough rough!

We enjoyed the course layout and it's condition in comparison to other courses in the valley. The greens were cut really short, so they were really fast. We will return as its a nice course to play.

Still good

Still lots of grasshoppers on the course. I got pelted by flying grasshoppers while driving the cart. The birds are enjoying the free meals. It was fun watching them as I waited on the group ahead of me to clear. The course is in good shape. Greens are still hard and fast. The aprons were wet on several of the approach shots to the green. If you hit the apron the ball stopped dead and made a deep ball mark.
Fairways are good. There is sand in the sand traps. This is an oddity in AZ. The island green is fun. That is probably one of my favorite holes.

Grasshoppers

Lots of grasshoppers on the course. Not a problem, just lots of flying bugs.
The course was in decent shape. Greens are hard, fast and slick. Putts would slide by the hole. Seems like the greens are packed sand with too thin of a grass base. One thing I will mention is that a group of members that I caught up to on the back 9 played incredibly slow. They spent 20 minutes searching for balls on each hole and then slowly finished the hole. I was only behind them for 4 holes, but they took longer to play these 4 holes than I did for the entire front 9 and a few holes on the back 9. C'mon guys. 3 minutes is the rule. Even if you took 5 minutes maybe, but 20 minutes at each hole? If you know you are that poor of a golfer (with absolutely no etiquette) you should bring extra balls with you. They are not a long lost heirloom that would justify the extensive and exhaustive search.

decent course, the only thing I didn't like was the greens. They were very hard and its hard to land on the green and have it stick. A lot of rolling off the back . The good thing was the bunkers , they had real sand.

Very good course, not great

Course has some great holes and a few that are average at best. No ball washers and some holes without garbage container is different.

Overseeding

I wish I knew before playing that the greens had been sanded. The greens were fast which is fine but they wouldn’t hold on most shots

A nice, easy, quick round

The course is extremely forgiving, there isn’t a whole lot of trouble and where there is (looking at you #15 and 18) the areas to play safe are quite generous. The course was in good condition, although I found the greens to be pretty slow but consistent and true, and pace of play was very good.

Love playing these courses. Have a variety of tee boxes to challenge any golfer. As a single, I have found the others to be enjoyable playing partners.

Fun golf course. It flows nicely and has very few gimmicks.
Probably a little overpriced.

Definitely recommend

My wife and daughter take lessons at this course, and I have hit on the driving range more than a few times. Pro shop staff are great! We are able to get a reasonable time today and specifically because we were doing a ride along, was able to talk to the pro shop and get a tee time that was early to where we weren’t eating up the day, but also where we did not have anyone in front of us. Course is not overly complicated and everyone is an absolute joy to work with. Rangers are driving around making sure people are acting right, but also handing out ice towels, especially in greater than 105° weather. Exceptional crew and great place to play. Will definitely be back.

Very nice course

Our first time playing. We played the South course. We played in under 4 hours on a weekend. Conditions were good. A challenging course. With four sets of tees so any level of ability would enjoy. I would play again.

Fun Course

First time playing this course and it was very enjoyable. Tee boxes and fairways were a little shaggy but not bad enough to effect ball spin or club selection. Green were hard and fast which was challenging but fun. Got stuck behind a foursome on the back nine that wouldn't let us pass which slowed down pace of play but no big deal.
