Comments

Malibu: For the money, and being a city course, this is a nice course to play. Course layout is interesting. Fairways were good, sand traps were okay. The greens were in nice condition. Updated March, 2012 This course should be fairly easy, but I couldn’t stay out of the trees. The fairways were in good shape, sand traps were also in good shape with ample sand in them. Greens overall were in nice shape. Great fun for the money.

Bone: One of the better municipal courses in the valley. Old-style with pines and cottonwoods which come into play often. Greens were in good shape and readable. Back tees 6,700 a challenge for average player. Close to freeways, convenient.

Stone: Nice Mesa municipal course. Lots and lots of trees. Need a fade and a hook to score well here. Restaurant closed for remodeling, not great before so hope it improves. Mesa does a better job maintaining it’s public courses than Phoenix. (P.S. Restaurant reopened and the food is quite good!) Updated March, 2012 Price was $43.00 (riding). Good condition and a beautiful day. Tough par 3’s from the tips, and a good variety of holes. Lots of trees and putting is difficult as none of the greens are flat to any real extent, and the greens keeper seems to take a fiendish delight in difficult (but fair) placements of the pins.

Quickbuck: March, 2012 Good shape for a Muni course. I struggle here, don’t know why. There are no flat putts. The greens are large and the pin placement can be brutal. Five hour round today. Most of the time it plays in four or less.
