LONE TREE GOLF CLUB (480-219-0830)
Arizona Golf Course Review
Lone Tree Golf club in Chandler is an 18-hole user friendly championship golf course featuring generous fairways that wind through a Del Webb residential community. Located
about 8 miles off I-10 down Riggs Road, Lone Tree is one of the areas best value courses, with 2017 rates topping out at just $138 in prime time and it is continually rated as
having some of the top greens in the valley.
Golfers will find level lies along rolling fairways that often provide a "bowl effect" due to mounds and desert waste banks, that often slope towards the middle. Gorgeous mountain
backdrops are present on many holes, as evidenced by the photos above. Over 50 sand bunkers line the fairways or are positioned greenside - many high lipped and penal in
nature. An equal amount of green complexes provide easy entry however, allowing for bump and runs and easy recoveries. Five holes have water in play, although an additional
two also had water hazards on our visit, as the metro Phoenix area was hit with a steady dose of rain for nearly 3 straight weeks in February.
4 sets of tee boxes are sculpted from the landscaped desert, with yardages and slopes measuring 7007 yards/123 slope, 6465 yards/118 slope, 5941 yards/113 slope and 5001
yards with a slope of 123 for ladies playing from the forward tees. On course yardages are marked to the center of the green on sprinkler heads, and 150 yard stakes are visible on
all par fours and fives. Red, white and blue flags indicate hole location on the greens.
The clubhouse includes a pro shop plus The Grille at Lone Tree, a restaurant/lounge with a sportsbar atmosphere that features full breakfast and lunch menus with daily specials
. Grille hours of operation are sunrise to 7 p.m.. The practice facilities are comprehensive, with a targeted grass range, large new putting green, chipping green, plus short game
area with sand bunker.
Lone Tree was the home of 2005 and 2006 Arizona Golf Association Stroke Play Championship, and again hosted the FBR Open PGA Tour qualifier from 2007 through 2011. The
course is an annual stop of the Gateway Tour and has been the location of the Waste Management Pre-Qualifier since 2010. It is an enjoyable course, especially for mid to high
handicappers. For more info, visit our page for Lone Tree with direct link to their website by clicking here.
