AHWATUKEE COUNTRY CLUB (480-893-1161)
Arizona Golf Course Review
Ahwatukee Country Club is a par 72, 18-hole championship design that is recognized as a good value golf experience in the south Phoenix area. It is owned and managed by the
Foothills Golf Group... the same group that also owns The Duke Golf Club, Foothills, Club West and The Lakes at Ahwatukee, promising fun golf at great values! The adjacent
Lakes Course (an executive layout) is the annual host of the Arizona short course championship. Memberships here include play on both of these courses. But these two designs
are also open for public play. This course is part of the Foothill golf group – click here for information on the Gold Card, with guaranteed best rates for Ahwatukee, Club West. Foothills and The Duke at Rancho El Dorado.
Ahwatukee presents wide fairways along a fairly level terrain with some scattered trees and mounding. The course winds through a residential community and offers a good test
for mid to high handicappers and beginning golfers, and is also women friendly. The green complexes are medium in size and mostly flat, with open fronts that invite low running
pitches and chips.
Many of greens have sand traps positioned on one or both sides, and in total there are approximately 32 bunkers scattered about the course. Lakes come into play on six holes,
and these hazards are particularly daunting on the par three 4th and 14th holes, as well as the par four 6th.
There are three sets of tee boxes that play to distances and slopes measuring 6713 yards/120 slope, 6103 yards/115 slope, and 5506 yards with a slope off 112 from the red tees
. On course sprinkler heads are measured to the center of the green, and 150 yard stakes are positioned on the fairways of all par fours and fives. The pin placement sheet on all
scorecards provides info on the day's hole locations.
On property is a clubhouse with pro shop plus restaurant that is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch, and dinner menus are featured as well on weekends. There are
locker rooms with showers for men and women, and a targeted grass range plus two putting greens round out the practice facilities. Lessons of all types are available at this
property, which serves host to the local high school golf teams.
The fairways and tees are Bermuda turf and the green complexes utilize TiffEagle grass. Each cart is equipped with a cooler, and air conditioning units are available fro $3 per
golfer. For more info, visit our page for the course, visit our page for the course, with direct link tot heir website by clicking here.
