This executive course has some challenging, undulating greens that are difficult to read. The fairways are narrow and loaded with very unique mounding. Two lakes and a drainage ditch come into play on several holes. The signature hole is #18, a 340-yard, par 4, requiring both your tee and approach shots to be hit over water. Nine hole play is allowed on a stand-by basis only. American Golf Club members receive a ten percent discount on all posted fees. This facility also has league play and takes tournament reservations. Night tournaments are held here, but you must use glow-in-the-dark balls.

Decent low end course, May 15, 2005
from Scottsdale, AZ USA
|Continental GC is an 18-hole executive course (par 60). Many of the greens and tee boxes are elevated, but overall, this is a flat, open course well-suited for practicing iron play. Most of the holes are par 3s (100 - 180 yds), with the par 4s ranging up to 330 yds or so. The greens are in decent shape, though some of the fairways are a little brown (standard for AZ in the summer.) The course's biggest negative, for beginners anyway, is that the 1st hole runs along the side of the open driving range. My first tee shot hooked right into it. With apartments lining one side, and the range along the other, the net effect is a narrow practical hitting area. Also, the first fairway was covered in range balls. Fortunately, the Club uses yellow practice balls, so it is easy to find yours. The clubhouse is decent-sized, if a little expensive, and there is a restaurant on site. I found the fees a little high for a course like this, but it still falls well within the 'bargain' range. (Approx. $20 for 18 holes with a cart - summer prices a little lower, and morning play a little higher.) Overall, this course is good for people looking for a quick 18 without paying resort rates.|
