My wife and I played Foothills on 11-2-16. We had an 8:56 tee time and were able to start a few minutes early. The course was playing with cart paths only due to recent over seeding. We were paired with a local couple that were able to give us some course knowledge. The course is generally wide open off the tee but has some hidden trouble closer to the greens. The course was in very good condition. The tee boxes were lush and generally flat. The fairways and rough were very lush and had few divots or bare spots. The greens were medium/slow but were very true putting. The breaks on the greens were clearly visible which made reading putts fairly easy. My only concern with the course condition was the bunkers. They were very firm with a thin layer of sand on top. The staff was friendly and helpful. Even with the cart paths only we were able to complete our round in under 4 1/4 hours. This course was well worth the $28.00 per player rate on
I played the the Squire and Hawk nines on 10-31-16. The staff from the pro shop to the starter and rangers was very friendly and helpful. We had a 1:02 tee time but we able to start about 15 minutes early. The course was just coming out of over seeding and was playing with a 90 degree rule with the exception of 3 holes. The fairways were in very good condition but were wet in some areas due to the recent watering of the over seeding. The few divots in the fairways had been filled with sand/seed mix. The greens had a few ball marks (most had been repaired) and were playing slow but rolled true. The bunkers had plenty of sand but were crusty on top. The tee boxes were mostly very good but several of the 3 pars had severe divot damage. The course is flat, narrow, and tree lined with seven holes having water in play. While it looks fairly benign the course provides plenty of challenge with four tees to choose from. This is a course I would gladly play again when I am in the Phoenix area.
My wife and I played Cave Creek Golf Course on 10-25-16. We arrived half an hour before our tee time and were told we could start at any time. We chose to practice on the putting green for a few minutes and started 15 minutes before our scheduled time. The service in the pro shop and on the course from the Rangers was very good. The course is a Phoenix Muni but the fairways and greens would be acceptable at a moderately priced private club. The tee boxes were generally okay but a few had either divot damage or uneven lies. The rough varied from thin dormant bermuda grass and bare dirt to lush thick overseeded rye grass mixed with common bermuda grass. I was not in any bunkers but they looked to be of average condition. The course is just coming out of the over seed process and is allowing carts only on cart paths or rough. Check for updates
I played Arizona Grand on 10-21-16. The service at the bag drop, the pro shop and the starter were all excellent. The course was cart paths only due to over seeding but a check of had me prepared to do some walking. The tee boxes were in fair shape with some being uneven and others having numerous divots. The fairways were inconsistently mowed with patches of grass 1 to 3 inches in several fairways. The greens putted slow but true with no significant damage. I was not in a bunker all day but the bunkers looked well groomed with moderately firm sand. The front nine of this course is a resort type course but the back nine becomes a true desert course with forced carries, water in play, and elevation changes. The front nine is mostly bordered by the resort but the back nine has many natural desert views. I would play this course again but I would wait until the fairways were open and look for a discount on or
My wife and I player Desert Canyon on 10/19/16. The course had been open for about 6 days since over seeding so it was cart paths only. We were ready for this since we checked prior to reserving a tee time on The staff was friendly on our arrival and were were able to use the range and begin play 15 minutes before our scheduled tee time. The course has many elevation changes. There are several elevated tees as well as several elevated greens. There are many views of the desert and the mountains. The condition of the course was very good. The fairways were lush and well mowed. The greens were rather slow and still had some sand on them which made putting a little inconsistent. The tee boxes were in very good shape. I was only in 1 bunker and it was smooth and firm. The course has multiple tee boxes that will allow each golfer to select his or her own challenge level. Overall I found this to be a very enjoyable course that I would play again. My only suggestions to the course management would be to put laser reflectors on the flag sticks and to have more drinking water available on the course.
My wife and I played Bennett Valley 8-10-16. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We had an 11:30 tee time and started on time with two friendly young men. The driving range is large and has both grass and mats to practice from. The mats were new and gave a good cushion to hit from. The practice green is large and putts the same as the greens on the course. Most of the tees were in very good condition with the exception of the par 3 tee boxes that had quite a few unfilled divots. The fairways had some dry or bare areas but were mostly lush without much divot damage. I think the bare areas were caused by water restrictions rather than poor maintenance since they were mostly in areas that were on slopes that would be hard to hold water. The bunkers had good consistent sand but, like many muni courses, were full of footprints and poorly raked. The front nine has some holes with significant elevation changes while the back nine is nearly all flat. The course has very many mature redwood, pine and oak trees. The fairways are reasonable width but a shot into the tree line will frequently require a chip back to the fairway. This is a very scenic and enjoyable golf course. I will return to play here again.
I played with the GK Guru group on 8-4-16. We started on time and played at our own pace. The course is in great conditions if you are able to stay out of the bunkers and the native areas beyond the rough. The greens were a little slower than I have usually seen them, probably due to the past 2 weeks of 100 plus temperatures. The tee boxes and fairways were as good as I would expect to see on a far more expensive private course. I did not have to play from a divot or bare spot during the entire round. The course is fair if you pick the correct tee box to play from. There is a sign at the starter's shack the gives you recommendations for which tee to to play depending on your driving distance. The sand in the bunkers was okay but the bunkers are deep and many of the faces have thick bermuda growing down several feet into the bunker. Playing out sideways is frequently the best choice from some of the bunkers. The practice area and driving range is large and well designed. This is a course I would recommend to any one that is in the area and looking for an inexpensive round of golf on a quality golf course.
I played Old Back Nine Golf course on 9-28-15. It was a little late in the season for central Oregon but the weather was in the high 70's with no wind. This 9 hole course has three tee boxes so it can be an interesting round for golfers of different skill levels. I was able to play around twice and found that the second time I was more aware of the trouble spots to avoid. The course is set in large Ponderosa pines with about half of the fairways being fairly narrow. The fairways, rough and greens were in near perfect condition. The course did not have any bunkers (hence the good rating) but did have a number of ponds and streams. The views of the Cascade Mountains were spectacular. While some early reviews of this course were critical of the staff and management of this course I found everyone to be very friendly and accommodating. The pace of play was a little slow but I was a single playing behind 3 groups of local seniors and still was able to finish each 9 holes in under 2 hours. While there are no discounts available for this course the regular price of $22 per nine holes was reasonable for a course in this condition and with this beauty. My wife was able to ride along with me for no charge.
Meadow Lakes is a very well kept and scenic golf course. The greens are as good as any I have played in quite a while. The fairways and rough are well maintained and without many divots. The bunkers are fair with some gravel mixed with the sand. The course has many holes with water in play since the course was built as part of a water treatment plant. There is no odor but there are warning signs to avoid contact with water in the hazards. The pace of play was very good and the local golfer I played with said that the course is seldom crowded. The course was well worth the price on, and worth the 50 minute drive from Sunriver.
My wife and I played San Vicente today and had a great time . Pace of play was good even though the course was busy. We finished in a little under 4 hours with a brief break for food at the turn. The course is in very nice shape for this time of year. Many of the other courses in the area have dormant fairways but San Vicente is green and lush. The staff is pleasant and helpful. This course is a challenge to play with a fair amount of water and some tricky terrain. Discounts are available and make this a great deal.
This was the first time I have played Twin Oaks. We had a 11:00 o'clock tee time and started on time. Pace of play was good at just over 4 hours for 18 holes. The course is in reasonably good condition for the winter. The bermuda fairways are dormant but have a good amount of cushion so they are playable. The greens are running about 9 on the stimp meter and are mostly smooth. A few greens are soft and have ball marks. The bunkers are okay but have occasional pebbles. The course is a little tight and gives the straight golfer an advantage. All in all we had a good time and found it to be a bargain using the coupon.
Mt Woodson is a rather short course that puts a premium on accuracy. Many shots are either blind or forced carries over heavily wooded canyons.
The greens are fair but require close attention to surrounding terrain that can influence breaks. There is some water on the course but generally does become a factor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Very scenic and enjoyable course.
