Paradise Valley Country Club
Decent course at a good price
Course could have been in better shape, especially the tee boxes. Pace on a Saturday afternoon was really good, and the price was right.

The greens were in good shape, but the fairways are very thin. Not a great deal of grass in the fairways. ..
Aso, the tee boxes were rock hard. Tough getting tees in.

Course was a good value
Wide fairways greens in good shape all the rain made for some rough spots in fairways but overall in
Pretty good shape .
Front nine is easier to score on than the back which seems to play longer.

Great course. The front nine plays very quickly and while the back is a little longer. Greens were well manicured and quick. The tee boxes needed some leveling and work overall.
Thank you for a great morning Paradise Valley.

Never going back...
Course was in horrible shape, but for the price I guess you "get what you pay for"

This course is what I call a 'fill in' course. This is somewhere you play only when your favorite courses are booked and/or you can't find a good deal anywhere else. Every course does become 'worth it' at some price point and this one is around $20-25 for PEAK times.
The course layout isn't terrible, the trees are mature and can offer some challenging holes/shots. It's a par 70 with the front being a little shorter, more par threes and you won't need a driver on more than 2-3 holes. The back is much more challenging and has more distance. Most tee boxes and bunkers need a lot of work/grass, but the greens & fairways are in decent shape.
The facilities appear to have not had a dime invested in them since perhaps the Reagan era. The upstairs bar/restaurant has a bit of a stale odor to it and at night could probably host a wake. There's plenty of potential though if they'd start over -- but I guess they are hoping people ignore the lack of investment and feel like they might be at bushwood from caddyshack. Also don't expect too much from the staff. They obviously have driven by nicer courses and see how life 'could be'.
All that said, it's a good course if you can play for cheap. Perhaps a great course for kids to learn? I wouldn't drive too far to play it though.

Worth the Drive
Course was wide open with limited number of players. Great price from a hot deal. Greens were in great shape. Fairways were well maintained. We plan to return soon.

Good local course
This is a great place to play after noon on a week day. My wife and I played on a Monday and had the course to ourselves and only let one single go through. The course is in good shape with great greens.
