Decent grass...fast greens, NO RUSH...
Tons of gophers and their holes, so staying where it's green is pretty important.
Snack shop offers a variety of food, including breakfast anytime. Not expensive and fast service.
Carts are in good repair, clubhouse restrooms very clean.
Not a professional course, but fun to play!

The course was in decent shape ... thought the greens and fairways were kept well ... great course if you need wider fairways ... decent price compared to most courses ... all these factors draw a crowd which does affect enjoyable play ... unfortunately, all it took was one inconsiderate foursome to clog up the whole course ... course ranger was ineffective ... we were not able to finish before sunset due to the super lag of play

Beautiful Golf course but really needs to manage the tee times better. Golfed twice, first time almost every hole was backed up and second time was over 40 minutes behind even though they opened the course on time.

Over the weekend I purchased their summer card for $100 which gives you a hat , shirt , free round of golf and a small discount off rates ( $5 when I play which is ALWAYS late afternoon). Played a later round(not sure when I teed off if it was before or after 4pm).

Went there today , practiced and wanted to go out at 4pm...FOUR PM IN LATE SPRING/SUMMER. Front side was closed because of the time and only the back 9 was open. TOTAL BS! NEVER stated this and why the hell would I think that to be the case when I purchased the summer card. It's summer...you know late afternoon rounds when you can work on your game!

This course is tied into Las Colinas and I have noticed several things there. They are picking up the flags at 6pm , again...nonsense. And a lot of the members are PO'd for the way that course is being run.

I don't play much at Apache Creek but during the course of the year I will put in 60-80 rounds plus range balls at Las Colinas so I spend plenty over the year.

I might ramble and make no sense. Played here 3 times within last year. First time pro shop staff told me there is a league starting soon (shotgun) and that I, as a single person, had to let them play thru. After being reminded by marshall and one of the groups, I sat for 45 minutes. Second time I played no problems. Third time did it for me. I signed up online. When I arrived for a 5pm time, I was told by pro shop staff carts needed to be in by 6:30 and gates close at 6:45. What? With an hour of daylight left? Rude staff. He said I could get cheaper price by calling. I told him I tried the night before. His response? "Sometimes we leave leave early if not busy." He also mentioned he agrees it should have been mentioned on web page. I will NEVER play here again. I will drive a little further and play a course with an awesome staff- Superstition Springs Golf Course on Power road and Baseline. At least there I can ply until dark.

I booked this course on GolfNow.com - another rip-off - and read the reviews, which were way too generous. The staff at the course are really super nice people, which makes anyone a little too generous with their reviews. There's barely any grass on the course. More than half the shots you take are on gravel.

Your ball will be destroyed and the bottom of your clubs ruined.
I will say that the greens were in pretty good shape and the pace of play reasonable. And, the staff are very friendly.

I cannot recommend this course no matter how low the discount.

GoldNow.com totally ripped me off. Gave me a rate. I paid them their fee. When I got to the course they charged me more than I was quoted on GolfNow. The guy in the pro-shop told me I should have read the fine print. Gee, Thanks!

One of the best deals you'll find in the winter months in the East Valley. Interesting layout, well kept fairways, fast greens. Lots of dirt in the waste areas, so if you miss the fairway, your ball will take off for who knows where. On the other hand, you might hit the first 350 yard drive of your golfing life. Nice staff, nice views to the Superstition Mountains. Easy drive, straight east out the 60 to Ironwood.

I want to pass this on about Apache Creek Golf Club, The course it self is unlike most Courses, It is mostly flat, lots of sand so use a older set of clubs so you don't beat up your good set! The course is in good shape other then the driving range which was really beat up. The biggest problem we had was we had a 1:35 tee time, we were able to get to hole 17 because they were so backed up there letting people out with on 5 min intervals! when a worker came to us and said that this is our last hole, our comment: why? there comment: because i said so! the cart needed to be in by 5:30! They don't tell you that when you pay your $45 to play 18 holes! One of our people said why don't you have a ranger out here pushing the play action and his comment was YOU CAN THANK THE SNOW BIRDS FOR THAT!! Never in my life have seen anything like this!! If you get a tee time after 1:30 you will not get 18 holes of golf in and Apache Creek Golf Club does not care!!! They have no problem taking your money and care less if you are a satisfied customer!

Traditional desert course with a couple holes with water hazards
Reasonable cost for the level of play
Couple greens were hard, dry and bare.
Starter system was very good, you knew exactly where you stood while waiting
Marshalled course prompting fast play, target is 3 hrs 50 minutes. We fell behind and were reminded three times to continue to speed up. The Marshall was firm but wasn’t miserable about it, never felt threatened by him.
Liked everything and would recommend to the average golfer.
Weaknesses are:
- Cart paths are in very poor condition
- Signage between holes are terrible, not truly sure you are heading on the right direction to next hole
- beverage cart does not sell hard liquor, only pop, beer and wines

Sure there are better (and much more expensive) courses out there but this is a nice track with some challenging holes. Many are very much desert links holes but if you know anything about golf in AZ you will have your "desert club" so you don't destroy your good clubs. Can be slow at times but hey - if you're in a hurry why are you golfing? We always found the course in ok condition and the staff great. Prices are reasonable as well.
