Maricopa Meadows, Arizona

Our group played Maricopa Meadows this last Sunday.

This is not a review, just my experience and I'm hoping to read a little bit about yours.

The course has free form shaped cement tees that have two large rocks that frame the front end. The back of the tee box has the hole number, par and distance. The course is mainly wide open with very few trees that really come into play. There is water on a few baskets and much of the course is along a street on one side, houses on another.

For a first time to the course, I played a 68 (the course is marked as a 66 Par, I typically play all holes are par 3 for a total of 54) however the course is marked with par 4's and 5's I think next time I play it, I will play it as marked and use the score card.

I went OB into the street twice. My drives are generally controlled but there was some wind and I misjudged it and added two strokes.

Great course for driving straight and narrow, a good roller course and well, a couple of baskets are near children play areas so please be careful.

I enjoyed the front 5 for around the water. Tee 4 over the water into a tight lie at the basket was fun. The doglegs on 13 and 15 are good but in all, this is a long straight course.

Holes 4 (285'), 5 (245'), 10 (246') and 16 (298') are the shortest at less than 300'

Holes 3 (385'), 6 (358'), 7 (526'), 9 (423'), 11 (425'), 13 (426'), 14 (480') 17 (493') and 18 (463') are par 4's and 5's

Have you played it?

How did you do?

What where your favorite holes?

We will probably play this course every third or fourth weekend as it is a 40 minute drive from Phoenix but worth the effort. I think next time we may hit the Casino for a few after the round.

Maybe we will see you there, Sunday mornings...

I haven't yet had a chance to play it. I've been hearing good things, with the exception of the close proximity to the playground. I may try to play this Saturday, though. Definately not this Sunday, as the Superbowl is practically a religious holiday for me. Looks nice. Thanks for the write-up.

I was supposed to play this past weekend but ended up sick. I am gonna check it out soon (possibly this weekend). I have heard from others that the tight proximity is questionable but that they like the course overall. I also hear that the course par is rather generous. The teepads and Arizona grass look great. ;-) Hangwind, be sure to post before you play so others can try to meet you out there.

Ok, I'll do that.

I primarily play FH, Vista and now MM is in the rotation. Our 3-4 group typically rotates between the now three courses.

Haven't made it there yet, but I do plan on it. I think a mini day trip to Casa Grande and then Maricopa would be pretty darn cool.

Hangwind--I notice you see to like the park courses....what about Buffalo Ridge. You do live in AZ, desert courses should be on your rotation!!!

Yes, I am evolving.

Long story short, one of my card plays desert courses and we will start soon. I'm going to play early on Saturday too. There are a few desert courses that are far more challenging than the parks I play.

I like a good challenge and now that I've got a good fore hand AND back hand, I'm good.

AZ native, just hard to walk in the desert on my leisure time but I am headed there, I have to.

Nice morning for disc golf.

I played a 60 total, 6 over if I were playing every hole a three, if I'm playing by the card par, that would be 6 under. Every OB shot gets a stroke penalty so I got a couple of those...

Pictures to follow later.

Fun course.
