“Course in very good shape”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

I read the comments about the course, and those would have been appropriate 2 years ago. I found the greens in good to very good shape, the course has been watered. A couple of the holes are odd, but overall a very good experience.

We had lunch afterward, and the food was good.

Very slow play, almost unplayable greens that were slow and patchy. Actually charged extra to use the driving range. This was a great course years ago but not anymore

“Great surprise”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Prior to coming to Tucson I was looking at the reviews of this course and was very nervous. We were actually very surprised wit the course and amenities. The course was well watered and greens were very good. The cart girls came around often enough and kept us hydrated. We also ate after we played and the meals were great! I'd go back again if I had the opportunity!

“What a disappointment--in last couple years has gone from being my favorite course in town to "I won't go back!"”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 via mobile

What a shame! The course has such a nice layout and stunning views, but seems to have just had no money put into it...and everything from the time I showed up screamed financial crisis--there is no inventory in the pro shop...there was only one box of high quality golf balls for sale, the air conditioning wasn't working, the restrooms were dirty and unkempt...what used to be a nice included perk, range balls...now cost extra..,and they used to be in good shape...now they are worn out and need replacement. The grass on the greens has been replaced again, but the greens are in horrible shape, bare patches and grooves, so the ball doesn't roll true. Even the staff in the pro shop seemed defensive and unhappy. It's so sad to see what used to be one of the premier courses in down dying. I really hope someone rescues it, as it's too nice if a layout to fall into this kind of disrepair...it's almost like having a Monet painting left outside hanging on the porch in the weather and left to just fade away.

“Great but tough course”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

This demanding golf course has some outstanding views of Pusch Ridge and the Tortolitas. Hopefully, the views will help distract you from the difficulties of this course. By varying degrees, narrow fairways, blind tee shots, washes crossing the fairways, and even water hazards make this course a stiff challenge. Fees get pretty high during the snowbird season ($150), but it is a great course.
