Played 10/18 to scout the course and 10/22 in a 4-man scramble for charity. The course must be one of the first golf courses in the Phoenix area. It dates back to 1913. It’s a more traditional style course. It’s generally flat, tree-lined, and has small greens. It’s got some nice bunkering in the fairway and around the greens. It’s not a long course by todays standards. 6640 yards Par 72 71.0/124 from the black tees. It has some good Par 3’s. Two of them play long at 212 yards & 215 yards respectively. It has a nice mix of Par 4’s, with the two longest being 482 & 471 yards. It’s the Par 5’s where this course gives you a big advantage. Three of the four Par 5’s are less than 500 yards. The longest is #18 which is only 509 yards.

The course did a full over seed and it had only been open a week when I played it. Generally, the condition of the course was fair – good. They didn’t punch the greens during the over seed. The grass was a little thin ,but it was coming in nicely. The greens were soft and slow. You needed to putt them firm enough to hold the line and not try to die them into the hole. The fairways were very generous on most holes. They were lush but a little shaggy which was to be expected. The rough was thick and could give you a variety of lies. The sand traps had plenty of sand in them. The green side bunkers had the faces pushed up to block your view of the greens surface from the fairway. The good news is they are shallow and easy to play from. The black tee boxes were level and didn’t have much wear.

San Marcos has a good practice putting green. It has a nice pitching and chipping area with a practice bunker It doesn’t have a good driving range. You have to hit the yellow foam balls on the short range. They have outside service. The beverage cart came around three times. I heard this course had its problems in the past. It was reflected in the fact that there are no recent reviews. With that being said, I would say it is a good value for this time of year in season. I’ve seen online rates between $25 – $45 depending on day and time. I’d rate the course higher once the grass comes in more. I submitted photos so you can see for yourself. I also added some playing tips.

Side note: If you are standing on the 14th tee box, look to the right and you will see a big white mansion. It was Al Capone’s winter residence.
