Arizona Golf Course Review

Aguila Golf Club - Arizona Golf Course 08

aguilalogoThe municipality of Phoenix is the owner/operator of a nice variety of quality and value oriented 18-hole golf properties, including Papago, Maryvale, Encanto Park, Cave Creek and Aguila golf courses. There also are three 9-hole layouts. Besides the fact that these courses are easily accessible, golfers will also appreciate the pricing structure that makes a round on these properties a good value on an Arizona golf vacation. Visitors can click on the following link, to find pricing and to book a tee time online at any of the Phoenix municipal golf facilities http://phoenix.gov/recreation/rec/facilities/golf/l

The photos in this review are of the Aguila Golf Course, which is the latest addition to the Phoenix Municipal courses. Gary Panks designed this 6.5 million 210-acre facility which features both an 18-hole championship course and a 9-hole par three course. With scenic mountain views and Phoenix's downtown skyline as backdrops, Aguila provides a wonderful golf experience for all levels of players. Both layouts feature significant bunkering and meandering transition areas filled with native grasses and desert wildflowers.

The championship design features continuous cart paths and 4 sets of tees, with three lakes providing hazards on five of the holes. Tiff eagle greens and 419 Bermuda fairways provide outstanding playing surfaces along a very rolling terrain. The 59 sand bunkers located greenside and near the landing zones of the fairways are quite deep and penal in nature - particularly off the tee. Land in one and you may as well add a stroke. During winter months, the Bermuda rough goes dormant, proving an aesthetically pleasing color contrast throughout the course.

The putting surfaces were in outstanding condition during our December visit, and the raised green complexes, like the landing zones on the fairways, are player friendly. Mild undulations are evident on the greens, and though mounds and bunkers often form the perimeters, there is usually plenty of room for recovery. Four sets of tees play to distances and slopes measuring 6962 yards/129 slope, 6403 yards/123 slope, 5952 yards/115 slope for men and 124 for women, and 5442 yards with a slope of 118 for ladies playing from the forward tees. On course yardages are posted at 100, 150 and 200 yards, and daily hole rotation placement information is provided on the 1st and 10th tees.

Located off I-10 south of Phoenix and north of Tucson - this is an outstanding golf course - and our favorite of the five municipal courses. It is a value experience that is worth the drive! On property is a well stocked pro shop featuring apparel, shoes, clubs, bags and golf accessories. The Eagle's Nest Cafe features a grill menu for breakfast and lunch and is open from sunrise to sunset daily. Beer and wine are also available. There is indoor seating for 50 people, while an outdoor tent can accommodate up to 144 guests for outings and events. Practice facilities are extensive, and include 30 turf and 24 artificial turf teeing stations on a 350 yard long range, a short game area with sand bunker, plus putting green. Golf clinics and lessons are available, and the Aguila Youth Learning Center is a state of the art facility that provides instruction in all facets of the game.
