Vistal Golf Club is one of the better values in all of Phoenix, and consistently delivers a great round of golf, and most of the time even with a pretty good pace of play. Vistal has some great elevated tees and holes giving you nice views of downtown Phoenix, and the Valley of the Sun. It also has a player... More

A tad above average because of the beautiful setting and the very friendly staff. The fairway grass is suspect to be polite and the greens, depending on which day you play, need closer attention. It is a thirty to forty dollar course but certainly no higher. The course does have the best beverage cart service I have had the pleasure... More

Played Vistal for the first time last week, and I really enjoyed myself. This is not your typical groomed Phoenix golf course. They seed the rye when the weather turns cold, so it looks dry and barren with just the dormant bermuda to play on. The course is well-maintained, so this not a problem unless it disturbs your aesthetics. A... More

I played this course by myself but got paired up with a couple and had a good time. The course was in good shape and the greens were pretty good but your ball rolled real well. The course had some dry spots but for the most part it looked good. There some fairway bunkers and some hazards but the weird... More

$15 for 18 and a cart? Yep! Rented a great Ping golf club set w/ 6 balls and tees for only $30! Incredible views of the mountains and the city of Phoenix.A few challenging holes for you scratch golfers and many very playable holes for us 90-100 handicappers. Greens and fairways were average, kinda public golf course feeling. Sand traps... More

For our 2014 golf trip, we decided to return to Vistal, a course we had not played in the past 7 years (primarily since we have been focusing more on the courses in the Goodyear area for the past few years). We had relatively early tee-times on a Friday, with our two groups starting about 8:20 AM. I booked the... More

Played the course last minute on business trip to Phoenix. Guys in the club were most helpful and went out of their way to make us at home. We payed @ $80 for club hire , cart , range balls and 18 holes and we're very pleased. The phoenix area had a lot of rain the day before so bunkers... More

Wonderful web site, just off south mountain next to Mystery Castle. Nicely manicured greens. If you miss it you will be playing from rocks on the some of the par 3s. Narrow fairways have to be contended with if you are new golfer. Membership is a good price for the year. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly and supports... More

Golfed today and we both enjoyed the round. The course was in surprisingly good shape for the time of year. The views are spectacular with the mountains and the skyline of Phoenix. Carts are allowed on the fairways. Staff are all friendly!! Course is challenging but still great for all levels of golf.
