Especially when the Valley of the Heat is too hot for even the most veteran summer golfers, Pinewood offers welcome relief in the cool meadows and pines of quaint Munds Park. From the back black tees the course offers surprisng challenges especially on the back nine where the par 5 signature hole #12 is a wide open tee shot followed by one of the narrowest approaches through tall pine trees in Arizona if you want to go for it in two. Many of the greens are tilted back to front so you must stay below the hole to avoid a three putt and give yourself a shot at birdie. Especially in late summer the greens are receptive but fast - rolling up to an 11 or 12 on the stimp. Environmentally sensitive wetlands wind their way throughout the course and serve as formidable hazards on most holes along with a strategically placed pond or two. 17 is a particularly tough driving hole. Don't expect too much in the way of luxury or gourmet food in the clubhouse but the eats are just plain good and head pro Brian's hospitality in the pro shop is second to none.

It's 100 degrees in Phoenix so we decided to drive to Munds Park and play golf in 75 degree weather. What a great day. The curse is in terrific shape - the greens are beautiful, played a little slow, but were very consistent. The course is forgiving if a ball is hit a little to the left or right. Although I didn't visit any sand traps, they were well kept and very playable.

What a great escape from the heat of Phoenix. This is a great course that is very fair and fun to play. The people are really nice and it has a nice variety of features to make it a very good round.

Played twice in late June. Flat course, lots of adjacent fairways, not a lot of trouble. In terrific shape, lovely scenery. Pace of play is a huge problem. In our first round, as a threesome, we got stuck behind a mind-numbingly slow foursome who wouldn't let us play through. We flagged down a marshal, who basically did nothing about it. On some holes we had three groups waiting on the tee box. By the time we finished, there were 3 open holes in front of the foursome. Second round was also slow -- just too many old folks who don't know how to play quickly (you don't have to be good, you just need to play "ready golf"), and marshals who won't enforce pace-of-play rules.

It's a forgiving course. A great bar after the round. Your ball carries forever because you are at 7,000 feet. Greens are in excellent condition. Cart girls do not have a good selection of food or drink.
