REVIEW:
The Pointe Golf Club is located right in the heart of Phoenix but because of the mountains in the area and the great scenery all around it doesn’t feel like the city is right around the corner. There are many top courses in the Phoenix area and The Pointe Golf Club ranks right up with the others. It is easy to get to from anywhere in the metro area. Hilton owns and manages some of the best golf courses in America and The Pointe Golf Club is another fine addition to that group. The staff at the course helped us get underway and off the first tee right on time even though we were running late coming from reviewing another course in the area. The layout of the course was really neat as the first six holes were similar in style to Midwestern courses and then we encountered the familiar desert style target golf with the last few holes going back to tree lined fairways. We were provided with a yardage guide to help us plot our shots but we would have liked to have had the use of a GPS system as is common at most of the high end courses in the Phoenix area. The course was in excellent condition and each hole was challenging. The elevation changes on some of the holes really made it interesting trying to determine our club selection but that really added to the fun we had playing this course. We had a great day of golf at The Pointe Golf Club and we can confidently say that any golfers coming to the Phoenix are will also enjoy a round of golf here.
