Practice Facility

Lone Tree Golf Club has a decent practice facility with a large two-sided driving range. The range has a big grass tee and mats at the end, which are used about half the time. They do have a large putting green right behind the range but no chipping green.

Lone Tree does offer a chipping green, with practice bunker, on the South end of the range. You’ll need to be a member, part of an annual plan, or join the range plan to get access. However, if you live in Chandler and love to work on your game, it’s worth it. 

Course Overview + Conditions 

Lone Tree Golf Club is usually in pretty good shape as they do have a small membership base. This ensures the course is usually in decent condition year round except summer, which is standard in Arizona. 

I’ve played the golf course for multiple qualifiers and AGA events and it’s a fun layout. It’s very wide open and hard to get in a lot of trouble off the tee. The greens are relatively flat for the most part, but they do have some fun holes. 

It’s a par 71, so there are only three par 5s and one of them is nearly unreachable in two shots. Lone Tree is a fair test of golf and you can definitely go low when the greens are rolling pure. 

8th hole at Lone Tree Golf Club

Noteworthy Holes on Lone Tree Golf Course 

Hole 5: Par 5 – 555 yards 

The first four holes are pretty straightforward and not overly difficult. The 5th hole gives you a good chance of making birdie as long as you can keep the ball in play. It doglegs left slightly and can cut off a good chunk of distance if you can drive over the rocks on the left side of the hole.

The second shot is somewhat challenging as the green is pretty narrow with a large bunker guarding it. Missing left is okay and leaves a pretty straightforward chip.

Hole 8: Par 3 – 198 yards 

If the wind is blowing, this is one of the hardest holes on the golf course. The green is very oddly shaped and tough to get a long iron or hybrid to stop quickly. 

Anything short of the green will likely roll back down and leave a challenging uphill chip shot. The front left and middle part of the green are the best target regardless of pin position. 

Hole 9: Par 5 – 574 yards 

The last hole on the front nine is a true risk reward finisher. If you hit a good drive, you’ll likely have a chance to attack it in two shots. But it’s a difficult shot with water and sand left. 

Missing short and right is okay, but the green is very tough too. There is a large ridge on the back third that makes a back pin nearly impossible to get close too. 

Island green at Lone Tree Golf Club

Hole 12: Par 3 – 181 yards 

There aren’t many island greens in Arizona (other than Poston Butte or Seville Country Club) and this one is a tough one. When it’s tipped out it’s 180 yards which is a mid to long iron for most golfers. 

Regardless of the pin position, the middle of the green is always the go-to spot. Anything left of the green rolls into the drink and right might end up in the sand. Take a par and run to the next hole. 

Hole 16: Par 4 – 342 yards 

The 16th is one of the shorter par 4s on the course and plays less as it’s often downwind. Longer hitters might try to go for it in two shots and if so, encourage you to miss left. If you can clear the bunker on the left, you can get close to the green.

The green is slightly elevated and leaves for a tough pitch if you end up short and right of the green. You can always lay up and hit a wedge too, as long as you miss the fairway bunkers. 

Hole 18: Par 5 – 572 yards 

The final hole at Lone Tree is difficult with OB, water, and bunkers coming into play on the tee shot. You have a ton of room left, but will leave a weird angle on your second shot. I’ve seen a few guys hit on in two shots and it usually requires a massive drive and great second shot.

If you try to get near the green, miss right, as water guards the entire left side of the green. There are tons of room short, right, and long which leaves for a straightforward chip. The green is massive – last time I had a 100-foot putt where I hit the pin, but sadly it didn’t go in.

  • Overall Recommendation – 7.8/10

Lone Tree Golf Club is a solid course, it’s just not my favorite. It’s pretty repetitive, with houses lining every hole on the golf course. The course is usually in good shape and it’s one of the better deals in the valley too.

Plus, anytime you get to play an island green, it’s always a good time. If you live near Lone Tree, they have some great monthly or annual pass options, not to mention good practice facilities too.
