Malibu: This is an old established course that could use maintenance. Overall it is in rough shape. Greens were in ok shape, fairways were spotty. Sand traps were ok. This Phoenix course for the money isn’t worth it.

QuickBuck: This is a municipal course not a destination. Only play this course if you have nothing better to do.

Bone: Almost Downtown Phoenix. A “locals with jeans” course. Greens can be tricky and some lengthy par 3’s. This is course is tired and, if visiting, to be avoided. City of Phoenix has real, ordinary, dated courses. $40.00 green is almost $25.00 too much.

Stone: Very flat, old municipal course. Nice views of uptown Phoenix, but that’s about it. Lots of trees, not a particularly interesting layout. Tough, long par 3’s to elevated greens. Number 4 course for the Phoenix municipals after Aguila, Papago, and Maryvale. Good walking course, but not particularly fun.
