Friendly staff, wonderful views of the mountains and foothills. Great place to play! Snack bar needs some more choices.

Golfed here with my Pops and Had a blast! It's got a lot of duck poop but that's a small price to pay for such a unique experience. If your looking for a fun course that's stood the test of time, this is your baby.

Good value with well maintained fairways and greens. Would recommend this course to anyone who lives in Phoenix area and has not tried it out.

Overall the course was nice; I highly recommend you use a cart when playing here makes it easy to get around. Course is a nice layout; there aren’t cart paths to follow except at the start of each hole. They also let you get pretty close to the hole with you carts which made the round much faster. Not much... More

Great track for the price. Unbelievable greens and an interesting layout golf-wise. (There are lots of more expensive courses with more scenic appeal in the area).

Can be slow.... More

We came at a very busy time and no tee times were available but noting our circumstance, they worked really hard to fit us in with another twosome. Having... More

Papago used to be a great muni and we could play ALL DAY for about 15- 20 bucks. Often we would play 36 or 54 holes in one day ! Fun and challenging golf course. Now, it cost about 38 bucks for only nine holes ! This is the number one reason golf is not growing. It has become much,... More
