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). But this sure beats other traditional Scottsdale tracks like Orange Tree and McCormick Ranch. Greens are unbelievable. Fast and true. Attracts lots of local mini tour pros (I played with three). Can be slow.... More

I visited here on a weekend golf getaway with a friend. We should have realized something was up when we were greeted at the entrance by attendants to take our clubs. 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

I played here on a cold January morning. The course was full but we still got around in right at four hours. The course has so much potential to return to its former glory. I am hoping that when ASU golf moves over here they build a decent clubhouse and pump some additional cash into the course. The greens need... More

Great course for a reasonable price. Staff helpful. Able to walk the course w/ full fairways and well kept greens.. When we visited sand not available on carts since staff personnel were walking the fairways and filling in divots. Highly recommended as must play along w/ all the other resort type courses in the area. Small snack restaurant and small... More
