First class golf course that is part of Arizona State U and not far from Sun Devil Stadium. course was in excellent shape and very challenging with undulating greens and rolling fairways. The tees, fairways and greens were all in great shape.

nothing else was even adequate. We've play a ton of courses in the Scottsdale area and this was, by far, the worst. Bad range balls, no short game area in sight, can't even chip on the putting green, tee time was delayed because no carts...More

Challenging on more than one level. The course itself is challenging enough with it's undulations and challenging holes. In addition to that, the round took 5+ hours. I'm not certain why, but the ranger said there wasn't anything they could do about it. I'm assuming...More

Great track with a lot of history tied to ASU. Front 9 is target golf where accuracy off the tee enhances your ability to score well. Nice pace to greens and well manicured course. Back 9 is a totally different golf course. Longer, wider fairways,...More
