Gorgeous facility and course. Greens were a little hard and fast. Will play again now that I know where to not hit it
A true Jack course. Amazing facilities and prime conditions. The greens are some of the toughest I have played on. Very quick and tough to hold a shot on. The course itself is a challenge with strategic shots needed throughout. Need to hit fairways and play the slope of the course for success. It’s a developing community and the course gives off a very peaceful setting up against the White Tank Mountains. Play this while you can before it goes private. A gem.
Great track, but beware
Super excited to play this course for the first time as I heard a lot of good things. Definitely didn't disappoint. The layout is great. The greens are definitely a challenge. I played with two members and it was way too hard for them. I think this course is going to be amazing but they probably need to enforce pace of play a lot more, especially with how difficult it plays. No one wants 5+ hour rounds of golf. Will definitely be back to try and to score better next time. Would recommend to anyone looking for a challange.
Worth a Shot
I tried out this course for the first time this weekend. I was very excited. We showed up a little tight on time but everyone was very nice and didn't rush us to the first tee. We got paired up with a single who was nice to play with. The layout of the course was alright. Nothing special but nothing to complain about. The reoccurring complaint here is how hard the greens and even tee boxes are. No balls are stopping on these greens. Putting a tee in the tee box your tee would break most of the time because it was so hard. Putting the drive able par 4 followed by a longer par 3 was a poor design. This causes a bottleneck wait. The tall grass where they tried to make it look like a link style course is not attractive. The tall lush green grass is strange in the desert and doesn't look aesthetically right. Overall it was nice and was ok. I don't really think it was worth about $90 to play right not but I would consider trying it out in a few years to see if it has changed.
Will be better in time
Beautiful course with a great staff. The greens were tricky and the tall grass eats balls but that has more to do with my game than anything else.
Great all around
I drove from Scottsdale and honestly by far one of the best courses. Worth the drive
This course only opened to the public in February and it shows! The tee boxes, fairways, traps, and greens were unbelievably pure. Yes, the greens (especially holes 1-6) play very fast, but the layout is really fun with a nice mix of par 3s and a couple drivable par 4s. There's a great set of practice facilities and the staff are super friendly. We finished in just under four hours on a Wednesday afternoon and I would have happily played it again if I lived in the area. Get out and give it a try before it goes private!
Great opportunity to play a very challenging Nicholas course. Overall in terrific condition. One exception was the greens. Numerous greens had patchy areas, with some exhibiting disease or blight. We played during a fairly steady wind, which added to the challenge. I would definitely play this course again.
Being such a new course, you have to be ready for some things; construction pretty much everywhere surrounding the clubhouse, patches of the course where the grass hasn't fully matured yet (on greens in some cases unfortunately), but generally the spots that have been well-manicured are in fantastic shape.
The layout is much different than most desert courses. There's ample room off the tee and not many tricks with blind shots and hidden hazards (except for 11), but the place stands out with it's greens. Most severe I've played in Arizona, in some cases it's better to miss the green and be chipping that hit the wrong part of the green. Played on a Saturday and the pins were placed generally fairly alternating between hard-to-get-to spots and spots where you could get it really close with slopes. Makes for a really enjoyable day as long as you understand how to use the severity to your advantage approaching and around the greens.
Played in a foursome with carts, 3 from blue tees one from black, finished in just under 4 hours with very little waiting. Practice facilities check every box, and had no issue with any of the staff. Will definitely make the drive back from Scottsdale again (if I can get on for less than $140)
Sterrling Grove will be a staple for us going forward...great start for them
The greens are hard as rocks and way too undulated. Shards to the middle of the grain either roll off the back or off the sides the greens are way way way too hard. The rest of the course is very good nice layout and fair. Until the greens get softer and more receptive it’s just way too high a slope.
The greens are the challenge
Beautiful layout, don’t miss the fairways. That tall grass is brutal. Approach shots and puts just keep adding up if you’re not careful. Serious putters only on these undulating greens.
Must play destination
Played this new course today and was glad I did. Every part of the course was pristine. There are still some amenities under construction but the course is ready. Being a new course, greens are firm and fast so be prepared for shots bounding away or putts rolling twice as far as your home course. Allowing the course to come to you rather than trying to over power it will make your round much more enjoyable. Hazards are present but not gimmicky. Play your correct tees and you will have a great day.
Greens are very severe. Play the proper tees for your handicap. Lot of construction but should be a great facility.
Nice Course in the west valley
Played here during the preview. It was in very good shape for a course that opened within the last month.
Good mix of holes. Not overly difficult, while not being a push over.
For the price it would be a no brainer to play it if I were to get down there again.
