Lots of fun, needs work though

This course was a lot of fun to play. I am no talented golfer but it was a fun challenge! It wasn’t busy this time of year which was nice because I didn’t feel rushed while playing. The amount of trees on the course were a fun challenge and great laugh since my husband seems to never miss a tree!

The course has great potential but the condition was rough. It was very hard to push a tee into the ground at the woman’s tee box and some of the greens were really rough. There are a lot of rodent holes all over the ground, which provided a great laugh when I stepped in one and face planted (I’m okay don’t worry)

In all I plan to play this course again. Casa Grande is the middle meeting area for my brother and I to get to spend some quality time in the course together so this will likely be a regular we will visit.

It appears that the watering is over since the course is turning in dust, oh thats right they are closing in 2 weeks for 4 months, why water. This used to be an excellant course year round, my have times changed. with all the people moving to casa grande, you would think they would wnt to keep it up, but it looks like soccer in king now..

Decent for the money

Title says most of it. Hard to beat 33$ with cart. That being said, little heavy on water and had bugs pestering on most holes, and that price point brings our BEGINNING GOLFERS,

Always like playing Francisco

Greens and Tee boxes in better condition than the last time I played here. Weird how some fairways are dry and others are soaking wet, sometimes in the same fairway. I typically just give myself a free drop if my ball is on hard pan or in mud. I don’t mind.

Course has good layout

Overall, the course was in good Shae. Well maintained except for the bunkers. The bunkers were hard packed and difficult to play out of. Just got a fleet of new carts, very nice.

Great time

Whenever I play Francisco Grande golf course, I have a great time. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The cost is fair, not like many others that try to take advantage of senior citizens.
I will always recommend Francisco Grande as a course that cares for seniors!

First Time Playing

Terrific greens

Went early on a monday. Pace of play ? Played as a single in just under 3 hours. Greens very nice. Too bad more players don't fix their pitch marks. Mostly flat but a few hilly holes. Fairways ok. Some bare spots. Tee boxes not very good but it least nice on the par 3's. All in fall a pretty good place that I would play again. Better than Robson Ranch right now by far and even cheaper even with their temp greens.
