Go to Aguila when you have an extra 30 minutes to get to and from the course because you don't want to rush your experience as this course will deliver from all tee boxes and for all ability levels. Plan to walk when the weather is cool and you are in decent shape as the fairways have more slope than you would imagine. Break 80 from the one up tees and you will have had a good though challenging day. The Gary Panks design fits right in with his other South Mountain corridor courses-Legacy/Raven- and will require you to make smart choices especially on the risk reward short par 4's. Bring your best flatstick if you want to score on these receptive though beguiling greens. Play this course in the early AM or in the late PM for best views of South Mountain and downtown Phoenix. You will be back.

This course is a gem. The fairways are superb, sand traps excellent with very soft greens that are a bit slow. A great value. The one thing I missed was vertical yardage markers on the fairways.

Aguila is one of PHX's best muni's. Played the course a week ago and the greens were smooth, fairways cut tight. The twilight rate for walkers is a must as you experience the late afternoon beauty of s. mountain.

How about the weather today??? Spectacular, to say the least. I played as a single at Aguila today and paired up with a great guy, native to Arizona. Great story from DH to hear about growing up here. The course was great! Greens rolled well and smooth. Aguila is one of the best values in town..great course from any teebox, challenging greens and long if you play the tips. Very fun day with DH who, by the way, has a swing like butter. Highly recommend Aguila!!

It's a muni, so don't expect Augusta National. It is a good muni and a good test. The Gary Panks design has a good mix of holes. There are some long tough par 4s and a short risk-reward par 4 on both the front and back nines. The short par 4s include long carries over water to well protected greens. The last two times I've played out there the greens have been great ( both fast and true.) The bunkers provide much of the course defense. They can be deep and tough to escape. You're not getting the frills of a mango towel or the Taj Majal clubhouse. The fairways can be as hard as the desert rock and the rough is dead bermuda. Still I really like the course. It's got a great backdrop set at the base of the mountains with some nice views.

I don't really have anything negative to say about this course. You have to be very smart about ball placement on all shots. The greens are always in good shape with a lot of undulation. I like it because it lets me use every club in the bag. For the municipal courses in the area it's gotta be one of the best! The rates are always very reasonable and the guys are always really nice.

It's awesome in distance, the greens are in good shape. The view of Phoenix and the moutains to the South is beautiful. The air is clean there and it's a course you have to keep it in the middle because the bunkers are deep.
