it is every bit of a "you get what you pay for" course. Attacked by a swarm of bees near the 15th hole, found a dead bird right off the green, pretty nasty so it has been there for awhile. I am not the greatest of golfers so i had a challange with the course but for the most part it was still enjoyable. Keep your head on swivel, because stray balls often find there way to you.

Can't complain much when the cost for two people, including the cart was only $32! The front desk young man was very friendly as well.

There were a couple things that could have been better: No water/cleaner in a majority of the ball washers, there was no one manning the cafe when we were at the turn, and the area between the tee boxes and fairway were in very rough shape. Also wish that the course was better marked as the layout can sometimes be confusing!

However, the fairways and greens were beautiful and other than a few weirdly placed holes (really difficult!) we had a wonderful time! Thank you!

The first thing I noticed was how poorly the greens were taken care of. Some were slow and bumpy. Others were scalped and sanded. Nothing was consistent and we found craters in greens. NO CARE. Competent grounds keepers do not live here. Teeing off on 7 someone rides up on a 4 wide mower kicking rocks and dust and circling a tree 30 feet away. When I notified the front desk on the turn I was told the GM would be "notified". Nothing else was done. Can you imagine teeing off and having rocks and dust and grass kicked on UNREAL. Gophers holes everywhere. To top off the nightmare they are running sprinklers on the fairways as you are playing. This was not a good experience and the staff has a lot to learn about customer curtesy and caring for a golf course

Although in better shape this year than when I played it last year, it's still in rough shape. The fairways were at least green this year, but the greens were brown and the ball rolled for days. I never had to repair a divot, the green was too hard!!

With the slight improvement over last year, I'll wait another 2-3 years to play it again and it might just be a diamond in the rough by then!!

From others I heard this course had been getting a bit down trodden lately, so I did not know what to expect. Well I was pleasantly surprised as the course is pretty green and in pretty good shape. According to the clubhouse, the new superintendent has them putting lots of water on the course and apparently they have an ample water source. This has helped the conditions and I would not hesitate to go back to Tres Rios and play again.

Greens and fairways were good. If you get off the fairway at all expect to lose a ball in very tall uncut grass or be hitting off bare dirt. No cart service but you can't have everything for these prices. They do have ice chests on the carts which is always nice here in AZ.

The course was as I remembered it. Layout is nice. Grass coverage was thin. Greens were very fast with thin grass coverage. They really need to find a way to charge a couple of bucks more and put the money into improved course conditions.
