Played The Links at Queen Creek as a single around 12:24 pm off GolfNow for $22 Friday May 8th. This course located in San Tan/Queen Creek off Ironwood and Ocotillo presents itself pretty hidden behind a shopping plaza and Big O Tires.

Off the bat, it kind of feels like an old-school municipal course with the parking lot and grill patio/bar situation going on when you walk up. Carts were a plenty with sanitized pre-cautions and the customer service inside sufficed. I was given a course booklet and was on my way. To note, there is no driving range, just a few mats that direct into a net but there was a decent putting green adjacent to the first tee with 4/5 holes to warmup

The Review

The course is very short, at 5787 from the tips and only 5172 from the forward’s men tees at a par 70…the USGA won’t be bringing the US Open here anytime soon. The tees were all pretty well lined and trimmed, nothing outrageous as far as divots or being uneven. The fairways were manicured and had an aesthetically pleasing stripping to them. The rough was rather minimal; notably longer than the fairways but nothing penal and fear inducing from hiding your ball if the fairways were missed. The bunkers were in good condition however there aren’t a ton out there. The greens were rather amazing, very smooth and playing difficult (fast and rather firm, though a solid wedge shot or iron will have some bite). The aprons and everything lining the course (trees, water, etc.) were free of substantial eye sores and didn’t obstruct play in any way.

Upon my first play, the front nine was where you have to score as there was two par 5’s and some rather tame par 4’s. This whole course isn’t long except one par 3 from the tips however I did use every club in my bag and I was definitely challenged by it’s greens whether it was to put my approach shots pin-high or to keep from three putting every green. I wasn’t ever bored to say the least. It’s an easy course that’s short and in present conditions…in good shape.

The Bottom-line

You won’t be astounded by its elevation changes or architectural width but it will be a fun day out in the sun for a good rate.
