They Say: "Pavilion Lakes Golf Club is a traditional-style golf course with seven lakes that come into play on many holes. The Pavilion Lakes golf course was originally constructed in 1948 and four of the last man made lakes were completed in 1994. Some of the greens are protected by sand bunkers. Continually updated, the course is in as good a condition as it has ever been. A favorite starter golf course on our Arizona Stay and Play Scottsdale golf vacations."
I can't even be bothered to research the Architect, even to ridicule him. We both rated it a 5 for being Flat, Ugly, and in Poor Condition. I had a 44-45=89, while Mr Science shot the same score he had at The Boulders, an infinitely more difficult and interesting course, 43-43=86. Even in pristine condition this course would lack interest.
The shorthanded staff took our pittance, then left us and everybody else on our own to tee off. The cafe was closed, but some of the regulars helped themselves to coffee -- made it themselves.
I guarantee you it doesn't look like this photo.
