First off it was not as bad as some of the reviews. There are a few holes where there is no grass on the fairways, a couple of greens with dead grass. I know they had some major sprinkler issues early in the year and likely have never recovered. But, full trash cans at 8 AM on Saturday and brush piles have nothing to do with the sprinkler issues. Need another person at the register and a starter.

What a joke

Show up, wait 15 mins as pro shop person could not figure out how to get rental clubs for a golfer. Course was in horrible shape, some holes had more grass /weeds in bunker than on fairway. Also noticed every tee box had overflowing trash cans, a few holes had beer cans on the tee box. There were branches down all over the course, and on one hole we had to move branches to hit a shot only two feet of f of the green. Greens in the worst shape I have ever seen on a golf course. Played behind some kind of a weekly group event. First nine holes took 21/2 hours, then group quit and second nine holes took an hour. Even had a mower left on hole #4 green and had put the pin right behind the mower. Come on, does ownership ever visit the course or read the reviews. What a JOKE!!!

Thank you for playing Arizona Golf Resort. We hope to see you again soon.

What's up at AGR?

I have played this course several times a year for the past 10 years and never seen it in such poor condition. The summer has been hard but this course has been seriously neglected. So much of the grass has disappeared. Tee boxes fairways and greens are all in need of serious attention. They are getting ready to overseed. Maybe that will help the tee areas and fairways. So many of the other courses I play are in great condition because of all the rain this summer. AGR is a puzzle to me.

Rough experience.

This course has potential and hopefully the new management will make improvements. The staff was so friendly but they seemed to be short staffed. There was no starter so people were on their own and the play was very backed up. The course itself is rough, maybe it was the time of year.

Overall this course is nice but the greens were mud, I understand that they are fixing all of that in October but to charge the hight price is alittle ridiculous.

Terrible conditions and slow play

There should be a warning about the condition of this course prior to booking a tee time. There is almost no grass on the fairways, the greens are packed mud with only patches of bumpy grass and several areas are swampy with standing water. I have never been on a course in worse condition.

Pace of play was miserably slow. No starter was present. We skipped a few holes just to get around the slow groups.

We all agreed we will not be retuning to Arizona Golf Resort.

What Happened?

I have been golfing this course off and on over the past 25 years or so, and this is the most disappointed I have been with the course conditions!
Talking with some of the staff, who are dismayed about the conditions as well, advised that hopefully the regular GroungsKeeper will be getting the course back into shape after returning from a severe mishap.
The fairways, some Tee boxes were bare of grass but did have a few weeds and mud!
I look forward to this course returning to its previous good to great condition!!
The staff remained cordial but the starter was MIA. Pace of play is usually slow and it was not disappointing with this visit!

Just a mess....

Showed up early. Their card machine wasn't working. This has happened before and they just said come in on the turn and pay no big deal. Well not this time, the guy was on the phone with his boss for 15 min with no luck. So he tells the new growing line of people to go to the atm and get cash and they will give us two beers....... I just walked out got in a cart and went to the first tee with intentions to pay at the turn like before. Well there was no one teeing off with me cause they were all stuck in the clubhouse. So I teed off alone behind two groups of 4. The group I was directly behind his 7 balls off the first tee...... it took me 25 minutes to play the first hole...... I turned around and left after sitting on the second tee box for 10 min waiting...... I love golf, but really don't have all day to play.

Mudville

Labor Day golf at 0840. Extremely busy. No starter to referee what nearly turned into an assault between the two groups ahead of us when one group cut in line at the tee box. Course is in atrocious shape like no one cares about it, no maintenance in a long time. it was either mudville or HARD PAN, very little playable grass. Not worth $32. .
