Passing the time
Course was in good shape, greens were fast and firm. The bad news is it was cart path only. There was a lot of movement on greens which made it extremely difficult when trying to read greens. Very challenging. The cart path only made it almost not worth the drive. It was a long day and a long trip home. I was a little disappointed that the staff did not do a good job of announcing when you were due at the first tee. I know its my responsibility but they had you hitting practice balls at the back of the range which puts you very far from first tee and they had no clock back there. Easy to lose track of time.

Interesting course, great conditions
Very beautiful course with challenging but playable holes. Conditions were great, greens very fast. Superb, friendly and efficient staff.

beware cart path only !
That's the only fault I could find with Jack's baby, that and I didn't realise how far from Scottsdale it is ! I presume the course must have just been coming off overseeding as to why we were put through the misery of cart paths only ! I'm used to walking a course but this is just soul-destroying ! Course otherwise is 5 star. Wish there was some way for Golfnow to ward it's customers - it's a constant gripe with reviewers.

Pro: Since this is in Arizona, this course gets year round play. I like the fact how course was set up with wide fairways even though it was in a desert climate. Bunkers were in great shape and the course overall was decent at best.
Con: The greens were okay but they rolled smooth. I would not recommend playing this course when it is above 100 degrees. Also, if you go off the grassland and into the desert watch out for Cati which your golf ball might end up next to.

Great day on the course
We had friends vi siting from Canada who wanted to experience a true desert style course and Estrella meet with their complete satisfaction. It was a great experience and the traps surrounding the greens made it very challenging. Out one friend shot a 77 and was so thrilled. We purchased the exclusive offer which was great value for the dollar and will be back again.

I played Estrella with nine guys while on a golf trip to the Phoenix area. All of us loved to course, Hole 17 is a great signature hole. Course conditions and facilities were great.

A Gem in the west valley
I thoroughly enjoyed the golf experience at Estrella. The course staff was very polite and courteous and made me feel comfortable. Well worth full price. Nice practice range and chipping facility. Two very nice sized practice putting greens as well. It was nice to have the yardage cards with pictures of each hole provided as well. I will definitely be back. Thank you!

Moderately challenging desert style course
This golf course was in excellent condition for this time of the year. The staff was courteous and helpful. The fairways were lush and the greens were very a bit slow but rolled true.. I had an enjoyable round and will be playing here more often.
