Snail's Pace

Tee time was 7:40 a.m. From the first hole, there were three groups per hole and it stayed that way the entire round. Not a marshal to be found. We waited on every. single. shot.

At the turn I told the starter about the situation. He ignored me - he didn't say a word and turned away.

This experience has made me re-think about returning to this course. The only reason I didn't give the overall course rating a "1" is that the condition of the course was good.

Awful Customer Service Experience

Was in a foursome as one of the first few groups to go out in the morning. Conditions were what you would expect for overseed prep, a little dry and burnt out but still very playable. On hole 8 we saw the ranger and he told us to step it up because we were about a hole behind the group in front of us. I told him that we hadn’t seen the group behind us at all and in a very condescending tone stated “it doesn’t matter if anyone is behind you, you are wayyyy behind the group in front and need to hurry it up”. As we were making the turn the starter again in a very condescending tone told us that we were way behind the group in front. There is a 4:29 pace of play policy there and we got thru 9 in 2:03 (a hole better than pace) but he stated that it didn’t mater, we had to be directly behind the group in front. We rushed through 10 and caught up with the group in front on 11 just to find out that there was a threesome in front of us which of course should be playing a bit faster than a foursome. Unbelievable. I have played over 75 public courses in the Phoenix area and this was by far the worst customer service that I’ve experienced. The course itself is great but I would recommend thinking twice about booking here unless you’re okay paying $80+ to get talked to like a grade schooler for doing nothing wrong.

Great place - strange policies

The course is great and the staff were good too. As a single I walked if i could have my own cart - $25 fee for my own cart, so i chose to walk. It’s not as flat as it looks. Lots of up and down hill on each hole and from green to tee. I was beat. The greens are difficult and i never figured out how to tell if the flag was front, middle or back. It didn’t appear to simply be a rotation.

Back to the course, interesting holes, good condition, challenging. Nothing not to like, except local knowledge is necessary on several holes.

I like playing here and will return.

Southern dunes

Pretty nice track. Middle of nowhere though. Carts are dog slow but cart girls make at least two passes per 9 so get ready to drink

A few days after aeration.

Course was in great shape! Greens were better than expected and just a few days after being punched. We had a great time!

VERY CHALLENGING

The "recreational" golfer will find this course very difficult. No doubt the temperature which hovered around 115 degress contributred to this challenging design. Lots of bunkers in landing area of tee shot for all levels of players and all greens heavily bunkered. I agree that the course is ranked #4 in Phoenix area. Well deserved reputation. GREAT FOOD and SERVICE with inside dining now being offered. THANKS

Perfect!

The course is in absolute perfect shape. The staff is always friendly and very knowledgeable. The practice faculty is always maintained as good as the course. I can’t rave enough about ACSD!
