Comments

Malibu: We played this course on a windy day, making it more difficult to play than usual. The trees are large and are everywhere. The greens were tough. They wouldn’t hold shots. Balls in rough, difficult to get out.

Bone: Very hard greens. Tees were in poor shape when we played. Commercial building constructed to right of the 1st hole has ruined it. There are some challenging holes (especially #3, a long par three) but the course is generally very flat. Practice facility is sub-par due to the space limitations (course is connected to San Marcos Resort). Clubhouse/Pro Shop needs upgrade.

Stone: Small, granite hard greens; Grand Canyon deep rough. One of the oldest courses in the valley and close to neat restaurants downtown Chandler after golf. Looks like it should be easy, but our scores never end up that way. Practice greens okay, but range only has cayman balls. Updated January, 2013: Some things never change; tee boxes and some greens in poor shape, but greens were soft from overseeding unlike the summertime. Beautiful course with local brewery and good restaurants within a stone’s throw of the course, but for some reason they just don’t spend the money to keep the course in good shape. Still worth trying just for the experience.

QuickBuck: Rough grass was deep. This course will never change. This course plays more difficult than it looks.
