Played Sunday 10/27, 10:34 tee time, starter let me and one other single out 30 minutes early. Course did not seem that crowded, but POP was still 4.5 hours. CC has just finished their fall overseed, so holes 1 & 10 were cart path only and the rest were okay to drive in the rough.
Definitely want to keep it on the fairways, were coming in nice and lush...the rough, such as it is, does not get seeded at all, so balls hooked or sliced can find themselves with an unplayable lie in one of the course's many gulleys. Tee boxes were in good condition, as were the aforementioned fairways. The greens have not yet been cut, and were extremely slow, like croquet mallet slow. My playing partner skulled one shot from 15 yards off the green, and, by all rights, the ball should have ended up 20 yards past the green. Instead, it settled in on the green, maybe 20 feet from the hole. Once they start cutting them, I'm sure the speed will pick up. Other than the extreme slowness, they were in very good condition. Bunkers had plenty of sand, very playable.
As for the facilities and amenities, this is a city of Phoenix course, so don't expect TPC Scottsdale when you pull up. There is a huge driving range on the other side of the parking lot (and it is a long walk with your clubs to the hitting area, as well as putting green and chipping area. Carts are motorized and in need of service, and do not come with coolers, so bring your own. Friendly service inside the clubhouse and from the cart girl, seems to be a course the locals play over and over.
The course itself is a decent challenge for the mid-to-high handicappers. While the yardage is not overly long (6772 from the tips and 6199 from the Blues), with all the fresh grass and moisture in the fairways the course did seem to play a little longer on many holes. Cave Creek is a nice course for the price, but not one I'd go out of my way to include on my itinerary.

Quick update for October 2013: Course reopened after fall re-seeding, still cart path only for a couple weeks more. Fairways are in beautiful shape, lush but still allowing for rolls. The tees are a disappointment: many are still crowned, and already showing signs of wear, in complete contrast to the immaculate fairways. Bunkers have a hard crust, but you can still get under shots for a decent sand save attempt. Greens were a bit bumpy, and the Par 3s already have many ball marks from those who don't repair them. This is one of the best value courses in the Valley in the Fall/Winter season, and it attracts a ton of snowbirds from the Midwest and Canada. Prepare for 4.5-5 hour rounds as the norm.
