3 new Courses coming to Mesa, AZ

One of the locals here that was responsible for the installation of Greenfield Lakes is at it again. He has 2 projects in the works.

- 2 courses are currently being installed at Red Mountain Park that are being paid for by the city and a $20K grant from Timken Aerospace.

- Fundraising efforts are underway to install baskets at Fiesta Lakes Golf Course. They are looking for people to purchase baskets in exchange for a lifetime membership.

If anyone is interested in purchasing a basket, PM me and I will get you contact information. They are asking for $50 down (which will be refunded if the course is cancelled), and the basket costs are expected to be $325-$350. If the course decides, for whatever reason, to pull the baskets, you will get to keep the one you bought.

This is amazing! I've never played the courses in Mesa. When is the expected date of completion for the Red Mountain courses?

Yes, but not sure how likely/unlikely it is that they will actually pan out. There is talk of one going in Cave Creek, and a possible pay-to-play in Maryvale.

When u say two courses are being installed at Red mountain park, are they each 18 holes or two nine holers or what. It would be awesome if there ready when the memorial takes place. I would love to play them when I'm down. Also I love going to Beer World in Mesa AZ. It's like a win win.

Two 18 hole tracks. Apparently, one will be short and technical, the other will be longer. I checked out the park yesterday. It is pretty big consisting of areas with a lot of trees, a fairly large pond, grassy areas, soccer fields, and wide open desert. I'm not sure where exacty the courses will be in the park, though.
