Played Fri Oct 12th, our group messed up the email for tee times and luckily I was there an hour early for breakfast, which I missed and got right off. The last review was pretty accurate, greens half punched, and half not. They put the pins on the good grass side, so if you are on the correct side the greens rolled ok, if you had to go from punched to hole, you really had to hit the ball hard to get there, found that out on the first hole (3 putt) and learned, the only other 3 putt i had was I was on the good side of the green and hit it too hard, mentally forgot grass sides, so the greens weren't good but you could adapt. The other thing to consider is the approach, if the punched area is front and you play for rollout to back flag, it won't roll out , the ball pretty much stops. I had 32 putts so they are manageable. Other than the greens the course was ok.
Rode the Blacks (6706/72.1/130) in around 3H twilight using Forelinx. Started as a single, then with Matt for a few holes and finished up with Tom & Elliott for the last few holes. Sunny, fairly calm conditions around 85.

First time I have mowed back to the Blacks here, and several holes are MUCH tougher from the Blacks than the Golds. Traditional Dye runoffs around greens with mounds, water features etc. present. This is a more fun course to play then most Dye layouts I have experienced. Lots of OB & water, but most landing areas are generous in size. Approach shots on holes 7, 8, 14 & 18 have water barely off the greens.

The Bermuda tees were very chewed up and severely needed divot repair. Scruffy, however, the rest of the course was well above average in playing condition.

The Bermuda fairways were fairly lush and well maintained with few unfixed divots.

The Bermuda rough was semi lush and not overly penal. Good POP rough, mostly mowed low, usually good to play from.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand.

The Bermuda greens were firm and putted medium speed.

This course would be difficult to walk as numerous tees are a long way from the last green. No GPS on the carts. They could definitely use some combo tees here, as having no tee option between 6700 & 6100 yards seems too large a gap for me. Good facilities, complementary range balls although the range tops out @ 220 yards.

Plenty of water stations on the course and the Drink cart was out making the rounds. The customer service was excellent all around. Fun layout, Recommended.
Back out again this week, after finding out the tournament scheduled for today was cancelled. POP was 2.5 H. Fairways have greened up even more since last week. Still some "spotty" areas on some fairways, but not a big issue. Lots of roll and good lies during the round. Tee boxes all clean playable. Bunkers were all raked and cleaned, but still not enough sand in them (maybe a Go Fund Me account should be set up?). Found 1 that was playable and another one, not so friendly. Rough has been allowed to grow up and it is tough playing out of it (stay in the fairway). Greens have gotten better, for sure. Green/clean/smooth, good speed. Saw small issues on 9 and 13 but not causing any issues. Customer service is excellent at all levels. Course is in as good a shape (maybe better) then some in the area?
Played "The Park" yesterday first off at twilight and found the course in decent playable shape. Greens have come back fully from punching and rolled nice at medium speed. There are bare spots all around the course, mostly in places your ball shouldn't end up, including on green edges which is a bother if one prefers rolling the ball from the fringe as you will need to negotiate the bare dry spots. Bunkers were in good shape, some with new sand and the fairways were good to hit from. They are in the process of redoing some tee boxes so those tees may be moved up (it seems to counteract that many other Blue tees are all the way back). Good course for the price, reasonable to walk and with so much history . . .
Played General Old on THursday 10/11/18. Greens were almost back from aerify and the fairways have been overseeded. Everything looks to be on track for a great condition for such a bargain price. I will be back.
Booked 2 tee times for 8 of us for my buddies bday round. Right away I noticed they are getting into the maintenance process and well expected during this time of the year. A lot of dormant areas and really tight lies. The one thing that really stood out to all of us was there wasn't any sand in the bunkers at all. Also there were a lot of rocks in the bunkers as well. I've played here quite a bit and have never seen it this bad but again, maintenance season... tee boxes were nice and the greens were rolling pretty well. Won't be back for a while, until the course recovers.
Played a twilight round today and conditions are pretty much the same but the greens had been punched. The holes are not the micro holes or as big as I’ve seen but they are probably about the size of a pencil. It definitely impacted putts along with the ball marks, footprints, etc.

Like I said everything else is pretty consistent with the last review except it’s probably a little drier than last time. Overall the conditions won’t wow you but I’d certainly wait a couple of weeks until the greens are healed.
Finally got to play my first round of golf after hip replacement today. Got thru the round without any pain!

Greens-punched last week and were bumpy, should be in good condition within another 7-10 days.

Fairways - very good condition, few too many unfilled divots.

Rough - many bare spots.

Traps - raked.

POP - just over 4 hours.

Excellent driving range and two practice greens.
Not much to add from the previous review, but this is my favorite course. I love the layout, POP- 3 1/2 hours tee boxes level and lush, fairways to me fantastic, some may find them thin, just hit down on the ball. There is no rough, hazard, and the greens were perfect, but I’d hate to see them in the summer, midday. If you can get a deal I highly recommend this course.
Played today with an Underpar special with free replay. First time playing here especially being an 1.5 hour drive from OC. Unfortunately we only played one round as the course was booked solid, however good 4 hour POP. The course greens were in very nice conditions, however they plan on aerating the greens next week.

For a resort course I expected better conditions, maybe i am spoiled visiting the resort courses in Palm Springs. Some of the tee boxes were bare and uneven. The fairways were nice and some were overseeded. I just don't care playing on Kikuyu grass as the ball does not roll and your clubs seem to grab the turf more. Some holes were challenging, especially the 18th hole.

The staff is great and friendly. Worth visiting in the future.
We played 10/7, the last day before closing for overseeding. As has been the case all summer, the course was in excellent condition, the only real room for improvement is some of the bunkers need work. The new restaurant/pro shop had very recently opened and is one of the nicest facilities anywhere in the Phoenix Metro area. The restaurant has an excellent menu and beer selection, Along with having one of the very best views and setting in town, there are already non-golfers that are showing up just for the food and ambience.

The practice facility is ready to open and will be one of the best as well. It is fair to say that this is now perhaps the premier public golf facility anywhere in AZ. Between the old school William Bell layout, the conditioning, and the facilities, it can't be beat.
Played Barona a few days ago getting out around 1pm. Course was pretty empty and only one person on the range. Practice facilities are great, big grass range and good chipping and putting areas.

Read the most recent review and it’s pretty spot on. Tee boxes are great with no issues. Fairways were painted green and pretty dried out with lots of roll. Really reminded me of what Carnoustie looked like on TV. While it doesn’t look lush I never had a problem hitting shots, still able to take a divot and didn’t destroy my wrists.

Greens were excellent and rolled true. There was no signs of the recent punching from maintenance. Sand was great and easy to play from.

Course price is high for an AM round but if you wait till 12 when they start twilight it’s not a bad deal. I really like the layout and always enjoy playing here!
