    I have played this course for 45 years.

    It has had it's ups and downs.

    Currently it is down.

    Can't even put trash cans on every hole.

    Bathrooms are very dirty. Both in pro shop and on course

    Fairways and tee boxes are Dry with bare spots.

    Greens are pretty good.

    General feeling is City of management are letting the course go down.

    Greens are the fastest in the Valley now. Very pro rolling greens. Trees make this course hard...been around a long time, really cool to see the air national guard planes take off An. Reminds me of Top Gun. Airways has some kinda cool nostalgic feeling to it. Fun Course.

    This course doesn't pretend to be anything it's not. Fairways are very poor but greens have been healthy and lush all four times I've played here. Flat, non challenging greens that roll true. Very little break from anywhere. Great course for beginners, and a fun "scoring" course for those with lower handicaps. Great staff and food too.

    okay yeah so it's a short course 60 hundred yards so why there's lots of trees yeah there's a lot of dirt patches so what there's plenty of Fairway it's not an easy course all these reviews are stupid.

    The greens are actually an excellent shape probably some of the best public golf course greens you can find anywhere. the traps they suck cement sand like most of the courses around. it's a difficult course and these crappy reviews make me sick hey hankster want you back where you came from

    OK, so it's not much. It was a short course with old equipment; it's shorter now. But with all the trees you'd better hit it straight and the greens are tiny, so you'll want your wedge play to be on. Greens are usually just fine for putting, maybe a bit slow. You should go away happy, having made a birdie or two.

    Want to make sure it's a good day? Have yourself a hearty lunch. Airways makes a good sandwich!

    I recently moved to the Fresno Area and as a golfer I started to play the local public courses. My first course experience in the area was Airways. The course is poorly maintained and there's lots of areas in the fairway that is dry with no grass.

    It's very sad that the municipal leadership will not invest in this course, the layout favors new players and could be a very attractive course for beginners. If you are a mid handicap player you will not be challenged with this course. Very Flat course, course defense are the multiple tall trees thru out. Greens are in ok shape however no challenge.

    For $25.00 with a cart you pretty much are paying for what you get. City leaders should invest in getting this course back up in shape, it will be a gold mine if they do. Located next to the Airport is a plus.
