The Aquila Golf Course facility offers two golf courses; one is a Championship length course while the other is a par-3, nine-hole course. The championship course provides an excellent game of golf for an affordable price. There are scenic views of mountains and downtown Phoenix as well as a challenging layout featuring several water hazards and bunkers. Although the terrain is rather hilly, it is still relatively walkable. The course has an excellent range of holes that each have a unique character, the par 5’s are especially notable. Native grasses and wildflowers are also present on Aquila’s Championship course, further adding to its natural beauty.

Surprisingly cool early on this morning. Overcast that soon went away caused it I suppose. We went off the back 9 for Aquila’s reasons I’m sure.  I was enjoying the round with Mike Clark, Richard Brooks and Tom Hebert. But 1st place lurked in other parts of the course in the presence of Dan Christiansen who won the 1st place glory with a great 64 net. Way to go Dan seems you are always close to the dough. Tied at 66 nets were three other golfers who scooped all the remaining prizes. Richard Brooks in my group took second place on a scorecard playoff. One heck of a good lefty player I might add. Third place went to Jeff Rhodes also on a score card playoff. Good job Jeff.  In there for the Atta-a-Boy and 1st place among losers Harley Ewing much to my chagrin.  Apologies go out to Jim Bays for temporarily leaving his name off the winners list for the Superstition Springs list last Wednesday. Bad proofing for sure. Venue for for this coming Wednesday has changed from Ocotillo to The Foothills so see you all there. Rest of the field’s scores below. Sorry for this being out so late.

The Foothills Golf Club truly represents what desert golf should be and caters to both power and course management-minded players. The par-72 Championship, links-style course, was designed by internationally acclaimed architects Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish. The Foothills Golf Club stretches to almost 7,000 yards with lush rolling fairways, blue lakes, and 65 bunkers set against rough rocky desert terrain. With four sets of tees, The Foothills Golf Club has appeal for golfers of all skill levels and has earned a four-star ranking from Golf Digest, along with being listed as one of Phoenix’s top golf courses.
