Eagles Nest at Pebble Creek
What can I say...
The staff were friendly from the moment I stepped foot in the clubhouse and the course was in perfect shape, wish my game was the same... I will recommend this course to anyone. Both ladies in the Pro Shop were very very friendly ...

While the course was in fair to good condition, for the amount of rounds it must see, one Ranger can ruin your whole experience. Our group, a collection of strangers, was berated by a ranger for having 3 carts among 4 players, a rather minor inconvenience for the course. This guy should be isolated to the range cart so people can hit balls at him all day long, or some other position where he doesn't have to interact with the non-members of his semi-private club. The purpose of exposing this course via GolfNow is to attract potential new members, a crowd I would include myself into. Hearing the ranger tell another member of our group, "THEN LEAVE!", as he was explaining the reason for not dropping the cart at the turn. Thankful I only paid $24 on a HotDeal! Don't golf here, they don't want non-members here anyway!

horrible outside services.
Not friendly to outsiders. My good morning was met by a grunt. The warm up buckets were 8-12 balls short of the 25 to 30 balls we were told they contained and member range rats were Scrambling to make sure they didn't go off with me and my wife, who could easily beat any one of them.
I Chose this course because 90 degree rule was in effect according to the info when booked, and was confirmed by pro shop staff. We were told that only 1 hole was CPO, only to have the ranger start yelling and waiving his arms at us half way down the first fairway, then proceed to be extremely rude about it.
We were paired with 2 very nice gentlemen (not members) that were also very annoyed with the lack of tact of the ranger. One that had played there a lot said the staff was always rude like this and I was even worse at their sister course.
After we complied with the cart path only limitation the ranger actually had the nerve to tell us to pick up the pace of our 4 some and keep up with the 2 some in front of us. This after we had played the front 9 holes in 1 hour and 35 minutes CART PATH ONLY!!!! We actually completed all 18 holes in just over 3 hours, again, CART PATH ONLY.
Course was in good shape, so kudos to the maintinence crew, but I won't go back. There are too many courses in the Surprise area that want my business and treat their customers right. This place needs to get their act together along with an outside services staff enema.

Great place to play
The course was in great condition and was fun to play.

Too slow. Too wide. Too many old people!
We finished our round a touch under 5 hrs. I got a killer sun burn and dehydrated from our wait. It's a super easy course. You can't miss a fairway if you tried. Staff was nice but the facilities are under construction. With the amount of other courses in Phx, I'd recommend a different one.

Good News/Bad news
The fly in the ointment here was the older woman with a strong accent in the proshop. When we arrived, there were no carts staged for customers. They were all in a fenced off area. When we mentioned this plus the fact there was another golfer who had just arrived and needed a cart as well, it threw her into a bit of a tizzy. She was somewhat of a scatterbrain. She was none too happy to see us either perhaps because we booked a mid afternoon (2pm) tee time. No effort was made to offer any advice or sell any merchandise. She also neglected to offer to sell us a token for the ball machine at the driving range or to even mention we would need a token. That would have required a minimal effort on her part. Luckily, a member was on the range and offered to sell me token after hearing me curse the sloth in the proshop. I gave him $2, inserted the token and got about twenty balls. Wow, what a deal. The driving range was limited to irons only as well. The putting and chipping area was nice.
The pro shop closes at 3pm. The restaurant was closed for renovation. Bring extra water. Up to this point we were not at all impressed.
The outside service person/ranger on the other hand was friendly and helpful. He told us how to get to the range(not near the clubhouse) and the location of the 1st & 10th tee boxes. We saw him several times during our round. He smiled and waved at us each time. There were only a few people on the course.
The course was in excellent condition. Greens were rolling nicely even with the afternoon growth. Fairways were in nice shape too. There were some bunkers under construction. The course has a nice variety of holes and a wide choice of tee box combinations to accommodate any level of player. We were impressed with the condition and layout of the course. We will play it again for that reason.

Summer golf bargain
Took my two buddies golfing . Was a "hot" bargain, $30 total with cart for the 3 of us! Course was in excellent condition 2 days after heavy moonsoon rains. Fairways were in exceptional codition: lush, green & soft. Enjoyable round. Appreciated ice water coolers every 3-4 holes. Would love to play again when not so hot.
