Pace of play at this course is not managed. Everything about this course is half assed. I've given this course many opportunities (even in their downfall last season) but I played nine holes and walked off the course for the final time today. If you are going to play this course, DO NOT pay their ludicrous in season fee's. Find a GolfNow hot deal and just show up whenever you want. I'd typically book a 7:30 tee time, show up around 7:10 and see the others that booked the 7:30 time we're already let out as a double or a single. Nearly every time I'd get out, the earlier tee times of foursomes would already be holding up the poor pairings behind. They don't care, just show up and go, if you're lucky you'll be ahead of the other groups. As a 14 HCP golfer, it is irritating as all hell to not land a pairing and go out as a single, then have to deal with the other hacks on the course getting pissy when you're behind them. Today at the turn I dealt with the starter saying, "Well you teed off at 7:30 and you've already played the front?" Let's do some basic math here. I was let out as a single, I was on the box by 7:15 and I was back at the starter by 8:50. This is not a long course, the front nine is only 3076 yards from their gold tees averaging 341 yards a hole. Even a below average golfer will hit driver, an iron, a wedge, and be relative to the hole at this point. I played here with a retired friend from back east with a 26 handicap last year, in a foursome, and we were done in four and half hours with only a few groups on the course. I was playing as a SINGLE at 10 and a half minutes per hole, in a golf cart, and the green to next tee at this place is no more than 100 yards with the exception of a few holes. Courses with a SLOPE rating UNDER 135 can be played in three and a half hours and NOT be considered FAST PLAY. That would average 11 and half minutes IN A GROUPING. Foothills has a slope of 122 from their gold tees, with golf carts, and no unreasonable distances between holes. This is a typical case of catering to the elderly and high handicaps playing incorrect tee's, I've never seen a ranger on the course to correct this or hold groupings at the tee box until appropriate pace of play golfers are let through. Had I actually been landing pairings (I have, one other time before) it can work out pretty well, so long as the players playing with know and understand their handicaps and play the correct tee's. Overall I'd suggest against this course unless you and three other people you know are going, land a hot deal at 15 bucks a player, bring a case of beer, a box of cigars, and expect a six hour round of golf. Their in season rates are insane, their website lists $110.00 US DOLLARS currently and it goes up to $130.00. I've played $130.00 dollar tracks before and this is not one of those courses. It's one grade above a municipal course with the condition it's been in the past 14 months that I've seen it. I've never written a course review before but this has frustrated me too many times and I felt the need to warn other golfers. SUGGESTIONS: CLUB WEST: It's only a few more miles down the road. It's owned by the same partnership, however I find most people to be too lazy to drive the extra distance to get to this course. If you book a tee time before 8:30 you're typically safe to play a decent round of golf. God help you in you book a tee time after 10, same issues over there after that time. THE RAVEN: Worth the money, you can typically find a 40 dollar round. Kept in great shape and moves along nicely. THE DUKE: Quite the drive south of Foothills and owned by the same partnership of courses, but this place KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE DOING. Appropriately spaced tee times, decent track, great clubhouse and you can find fun games played by the locals midweek with a tee sheet time that is allotted for large group play. Side note: I remember very few course Pro employee names over the years, but Steve has been a name I remember here. Always friendly, accommodating, and makes sure your experience is acceptable.

If you are going to play here bring a piece of sod with you as you won't find much grass in the fairway. Horrid conditions. We had to make a special rule that you can move your ball to a place with grass in the fairway. Greens not good. Fairways not good. Tee boxes were the only place with consistent grass.

Very friendly staff in club house. That is the good. There was no drinking water on the course until 10 am today & only because we called the clubhouse several times. It is after all summer and you can only carry so much on the cart. The tee boxes were beautiful, they seem to be the only part of the course that is well cared for. The greens were abysmal to be kind. I have never seen so much sand in one place except maybe the beaches in New Jersey. Balls maybe would roll 4 feet if struck with a lot of force. We played two putts per hole and then would quit no matter where the ball was. Great views only go so far.

10/25/2014: It was a bad experience from the get go. 1-They don't have an ATM??? Sooo no cash bets were taken that day. 2-No exaggeration; it took over an hour to get our food AFTER we ordered it. All we ordered were some burgers and there were only like six people in the cafe. 3-They did a poor job managing a company group they had golfing so our tee time started 30 min late...so instead of teeing off at 1:45pm like we were supposed to we teed off at 2:15pm. The course was super slow because of their poor management that there was NO way we were going to finish 18 holes before it got dark...so they forced us to pay for 18 holes with no chance of finishing. 4-I understand reseeding...I understand golf path only...but if you are going to have this rule, at least make your fairways NICE...they were horrible. Huge brown spots, etc. It looked like cancer. 5-Finally when I spoke to the bag boy at the end about some of these things he said, "I don't know what to tell ya." How about, "Sorry sir I understand it was a tough day, my apologies." 5.5-Oh and their pro shop was horrible. I waited for 5 min just to ask a question..and the question was, "Do you have an ATM?" lol Won't be going back.

Several times we have taken our grandchildren to golf. We learned at their ages and they expressed a desire to learn. We booked several times, paying full price for the course. We never had a problem until last week. A gentlemen (and I use the term loosely) in the gatehouse was rude, insolent and without reason. He was looking for excuses to stop us from taking our granddaughter onto the course, as she was a week shy of her 6th birthday. Now bear in mind, we had had her with us on the same course at least five other times since last year, and the same man, who never showed any signs of discontent previously, never said a word. In fact, he rarely engages the other guests we see nor does he smile. He makes rude look promising. As grandparents, we were embarrassed for our grandchildren who honestly just want to learn to golf. We have always been kind and followed all the courtesies of the golf course, choosing to teach our grandchildren golf etiquette at an early age. Needless to say, with so many golf courses in the Valley of the Sun, and so many closing, this man is a disgrace to the golfing industry. The course needs some work, and some customer service training. The highlight of our day was Katy on the course and the gentlemen ( a true one) who gave us our golf cart. Shame on this course for treating a family with such deplorable service. This is not a championship course and it does need some work on its greens. So raise the community awareness and train the staff toward a better experience so future generations want to golf on this course.

As a resident of the Foothills I was embarrassed and disappointed that such a beautiful golf property would be allowed to fall into the level neglect exhibited by Foothills Golf Inc. Turf conditions are horrible and have been since 2013 through present, May of 2015. This Tom Weiskopf design deserves better.

I can't help but love this gold course. The prices are typically very reasonable, the course is maintained well and the views of South Mountain are all around. This is not a difficult course so you will leave with a good score.
