Fairways pretty much wide and not difficult. Greens are the challenge....undulating and the fastest of the courses we played on this trip. Nice views of the mountains. They are aerating the fairways. A good price point when booking on golf now.

This course was still coming back after the seasonal over-seeding, yet was in decent shape. The greens put true and fairly fast. The bunkers do need work (need real sand). The front nine has a number of wide open fairways and is reasonably forgiving. The back nine has more target golf elements, and requires a bit more accuracy and strategy.... More

We got an amazing deal on this course through GolfNow website. It was a warm afternoon but the course was in beautiful shape, fairways firm, tee boxes clean and well maintained. Rough was true desert but well maintained and apart from some damage from the torrential rains in September around the edges of the fairways, it was beautiful. Would recommend... More

Nice course. Good rates-be sure to check online because rates are cheaper there than calling the pro shop!

Great course to start your golf vacation as it is a little forgiving on most holes. It is well manicured and maintained. Eat before as there is no restaurant, but they do have snack food.

We've played 36 different courses in the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Mesa/Cave Creek area over the past 4 years. And Dove Valley is one of the more fun and scenic courses. There are more expensive courses that don't even come close. As many reviews say, the front nine holes are quite different from the back nine, which makes it more interesting. We were able... More

This course is always in great condition / well maintained. Driving range, pro shop and even the restaurant are all above average. Good green fees and the pro shop guys treat you like a guest instead of a nuisance.

Course was in good shape and there were some nice desert views. We were kind of pushed by the course marshall though on the back nine for no reason.....there was no one in front of us when we went off 10 so it only looked like we had fallen behind. The marshall stayed with us then for several holes which... More

I've played there a couple times on their DV Card. The front nine is nothing special but the back nine is pretty interesting. It's got lots of holes where the driver has to stay in the bag. Shorter holes in some instances, but with some challenging twists. The course has been in good shape this year. But the play is... More

Played this last week about a week and a half after over seeding. While it still was not in premium shape and greens were still fuzzy, slow and bumpy, the layout was great and challenging. As other reviewers have said, back 9 is a little tighter and more tricked up than the front 9. Got a great deal through stand... More
