Comments

QuickBuck: Above average subdivision course, more like a resort course. Homes rarely come into play. The greens were a serious issue. Just plain bad! Check the pro shop about the greens. This summer it will be impossible to have playable greens. Long drive from Phoenix. $50.00 is the right price.

Subette: The desert is really gorgeous, especially in the spring time when the flowers are blooming. Tee boxes were very flat and the fairways were in outstanding condition. Would recommend “sky caddy,” as yardages were well-marked but not always accurate. Bathrooms were a little scarce for a desert course. There is no shade.

Malibu: This is a desert target course that had nice fairways. Views were okay. Greens were in bad shape, most in need of major repair. Sand traps were in poor condition. Course layout is nice, but could use maintenance.

Stone: Long drive, but nice views and quiet. Fairways and tee boxes beautiful, sand traps a little below average, but the greens were just awful. Number one was obviously unplayable and should have had a temporary green. The rest were not a whole lot better with inconsistent green speed and poor maintenance. Subette missed a putt because it jumped when it hit the old cup placement which had not been properly repaired. Many tee boxes to fit everyone’s game. Also easier than Grayhawk, with better views. Fix the greens and it will be a great place to play!
