One of my favourite tracks in the GPA. Always in great condition with scenic views. Nice practice area included in fees. Don't let the short first hole fool you, the fun begins after that. Generous fairways with some tough approaches. Fast tricky greens need proper reads. Play the track before more homes are built. Notice prices are increasing each year. No clubhouse but lots if places to eat in Fountain Hills on your way in and out.

This course may seem like it’s in the boonies- but I assure you it’s worth the drive! The layout has a great mix of holes, plays firm and fast, and has the best greens that I’ve seen in the Valley. You won’t loose many balls, as this is really not typical Arizona target-style golf. In fact I didn’t loose any balls! The greens are true, fair, and generally quick. A number of greens have shelves, tiers, and pockets that make for some fun putts! The vistas are amazing with the mountain range that includes the scenic Four Peaks. Pay attention to Four Peaks because many putts will break towards these majestic rock formations. Can’t wait to come back and try my game on this enjoyable test!!

Vista Verde is truly one of the best golf courses in Arizona. It has been softened since inception, but what a great track. The scenery alone is worth the trip. The course condition is usually always good and the greens are wonderful.

Found out about this hidden gem around a month ago. FInally made the trip out last week. This course is flat out great. Really well thought out-fairly easy off of the tee, but I found it very difficult to hit the greens here. A lot of the greens it seemed dropped off in multiple directions. The pins weren't difficult, but you better be sticking your approach. It did get a little frustrating one, compared to other courses, because of this. The greens did roll true though and were very well kept. I am a big pace of play player and this course was almost empty. I made it through in about 3.15 and never pressed or saw someone on the tee behind me. There are some warnings on the carts too about pace of play, but it looked like they would never have to worry about that. I had a very enjoyable, scenic round and would definitely go back! (giving the amenities 2 stars because of 2 things-range was in good shape, and a cart girl that came by 3 times. no clubhouse)

Frankly, Vista Verde is a great value compared to neighboring courses in N. Scottsdale without compromising views, desert scape, etc. (Sweeping views of Four Peaks, Weavers Needle, etc) The course reminds me of a cross between We-ko-pah's Cholla course and Talking Stick. Greens roll great and fairways impressively well kept for July. If you really want to treat yourself to a nice piece of humble pie, play from the tips. Fare warning-this course will eat your lunch if you don't watch out. Personally, I like the challenge. Why pay more for punishment when you don't have to?

Vista Verde is a very scenic course with only one house on the course, which makes it a very peaceful experience. This course always seems to be in great condition and it appeared they are reconditioning the sand traps with new sand. The only downfall I can see is that there is no club house to grab a bite to eat at the end of the round. Overall, I would call the course a must play for the avid golfer who dosen't mind a little drive to play a great course!

Excellent golf course. The greens are large and fast. There is no clubhouse so make sure you know what to expect when you visit. The rates are very reasonable. It was a very enjoyable round of golf. The scenery is beautiful and you will use every club in your bag.

This course has a lot of blind greens that punish the long ball hitter. Greens are also incredibly quick. The course is well maintained with stunning views but lacking in amenities until the clubhouse and bathrooms are built.

Vista is one of my favorite tracks and by far the best one you can play for less than $100 It is a great test of golf for all levels. Vista Verde provides ample room off the tee but has some very tricky elevated green complexes with subtle breaks that can be tough to read. It truly is the Scottsdale are hidden gem. The only issue if this sort of thing bothers you is the lack of amenities, with no real clubhouse resaraunt etc it is not for the golfer looking for the country club experience, but it will reward you with a great round of golf with even better scenery.

Nice to get away from the city. Great golf course, one of the only TRUE championship style courses in AZ. A must play for anyone who appreciates real golf.

It's beautiful. Great layout. Great conditions. It's challenging yet user friendly. Not real tight off the tee, gives you some room to hit it. But the holes are challenging. The views are awesome. It's down by the Verde River out there. Every hole is like a postcard. Just an overall great value. Good price. Great course to play.

I really liked the open space and that there were no houses around. This course is a challenging one so be prepared.
