“Golf Road trip..Blowing in the wind”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Had fun playing this course. Not easy or too hard, but challenging enough to make it a nice challenge. Only down side was 30 mph winds. Bunkers were in nice shape. Greens were fast but playable. Hotdog and chips were tasty. Would recommend anytime in the area you should play it. Good value at $45

“Pure Gold in Everyway! Solid Gold Value! Must play!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Fantastic track in beautiful condition. Could be the best sand I've ever hit out of in the bunkers. Unbelievable deal! $119 for 36 holes, a dozen crested pro V1s and lunch. Wow! This is a can't miss track if you are in the west valley. A fair and challenging test with some fantastic holes including some very challenging Par 3s. Course was in immaculate condition and pace of play was fast at about 4 hours. Played this course for our 2012 golf trip too, but it was in much better condition this time around. Will definitely be back.

“Golf Club of Estrella”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

It was recommended to us that we play here, and it was well worth it. The course is a Nicklaus layout that has wide fairways, deep bunkers and challenging greens which were fast. The views are beautiful with the mountain backdrops. The staff was very friendly, and they made us feel welcomed, prices are mid-range for the Phoenix area, and they offer discounts to community residents. Great course that offers a good place to play and enjoy your day of golf.

Fun Nicklaus layout that offers wide fairways, deep bunkers and challenging greens. Views are beautiful with the mountain backdrops. Fairways are in great condition but greens are a little bumpy. Bunkers well maintained. Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy this course. Staff is very friendly. Pro shop went out of their way to accommodate our family. Junior golfer friendly to say the least. If you have a golfing family this is the place!

“Worth playing.”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

Not up to the standards of WeKoPa or Grayhawk but still for the money a good course. Not a lot of elevation changes. Good starting course to work out the kinks.
