Affordable municipal golf course provides tree-lined, rolling fairways - atypical for the majority of desert courses in the area.

Nice place to golf

Nice but could be better cared for. Greens are nice. Traps are very hard. Layout has a number of unusual holes. Par 3's are very long even from white tees. I have a 14 index... read more

Nice but could be better cared for. Greens are nice. Traps are very hard. Layout has a number of unusual holes. Par 3's are very long even from white tees. I have a 14 index and was challenged by the white tees. Overall I was disappointed in the condition of the course and expect it to get worse as it... More

We were looking for a scenic course to golf while near our hotel and while doing our research this one is what we picked and we were not disappointed with the views while on the course. A little spendy compared to the other courses we golfed at while in the area considering the ammenities offered with the others. We played... More

Golfed with a friend here because of the proximity to the airport. Everyone made us feel welcomed and the course was fun. I would like to play when the course is drier and get a little more roll on the fairways but all in all it was a nice tract.

I'm struggling with this review. Positives...Great staff, nice greens, bunkers were good, price was great, tons of potential. Negative...pace of play with no one out pushing foursomes that were two holes behind, no memorable holes as most were pretty bland, clubhouse still not built (running out of a small hut). Arizona State is moving their home course there once the... More

I started trying to play a different course every week so I had to try this course nestled up against the Papago mountains (hills). Had a great time on this course. Took me a while to find the course. Google maps wasn't very helpful. The starter was great. I didn't pull up to the bag drop since it was early... More

Played here with two foursomes on a weekday morning. Course was in great shape...nice green fairways and well manicured putting surfaces. The views were terrific and unexpected on a course in the city. Staff were very friendly and attentive...the marshal even helped us locate a couple of errand shots. Prices were affordable. Overall a very good municipal course.

Nice layout with playable holes. Nice views, set in the Papago Mountains. Pace of play was 4 hrs 15 minutes for our 4some. Greens were good speed. The amenities need to be spruced up (add cart paths and spruce up the areas between greens and tees; pro shop isn't much). Would play again.

While at Baseball Spring Training, I was able to play Papago Golf Course. It is a municipal course and was in great shape. The fairways were in good condition, the greens were perfect and running at about 11.5 according to the greens keeper. I found the staff to be courteous and helpful, particularly the starter and the guys in the... More

This is a desert golf course. There is not a lot of car paths. You ride on the bumpy dirt path. I will have to say everyone that worked there was very friendly. If your ball goes off the fare way it will just be in the dirt and rocks. Easy to retrieve. It is a busy course. Right now... More
