Overpriced!

$90 for a round of golf on a Par 3 course and a $12 hot dog? I know I’m frugal but that’s ridiculous. PT Barnum had a line about fools and we got fooled. Oh well, even at 70 years old I have things to learn!

Everyone needs to know this is a par 3 course

They should clarify this is a par 54 course for the price they charge would would expect a par 72 course

Thank you for joining us. There are several mentions when booking tee times on line and on our website. We offer an upscale golf resort experience and happen to have all Par 3's. We apologize that you weren't aware.

We're not your normal Par 3 course. The Short Course is a high end golf resort experience at the base of Camelback Mountain. We just happen to have all Par 3's. Given the golf pricing of area golf resorts, we believe our fees are fair. We may not be for everyone, but thank you for giving us a try.

Great Conditions, very slow play

Course was in good shape, just so expensive for a par 54 course. Waited a while on every hole. 3:20 to play a short course. Friendly staff. Beautiful grass.

Thank you for joining us as we strive for a friendly experience and nice course conditions. On a busy day, our average pace is between 3 hours and 3:20. Overall it's best to play in a 4some, as 2somes play faster and may seem slower.

Terrible pace of play. No effort to move people along. Party central concept means golf etiquette is terrible but this apply a most public course.

Sweet par 3

I was in town for a quick visit and was able to sneak in a round. What a pleasant treat! Staff was very friendly and helpful as this was my first time here. Course is in great condition and the surrounding views are beautiful! A very relaxing round. Looking forward to my next visit!
