I wish a ranger came around to improve pace. There was a group of four in front of us. Very slow until we jumped a hole and then it was great !!

Since this was the first time playing this course the starter was very helpful in explaining the hazards of the course. It is a tight layout but very picturesque starting on the valley floor and going up the side of the mountain on a few of the holes.

Slow play, very few snack bars, and cart girl leaves at 5pm. Worth the time for the $$ spent.

Not a good course if you ever want to hit your driver. Definitely needs to be played once, probably badly, just to see the twists and turns before trying again. Pricey for a 2pm round.

Pace of play was a bit slow due to the group ahead of us, otherwise a very enjoyable outing . Great views . It would have helped to have played with someone who knew the course for a few helpful hints. A few areas around the greens were bald, but overall course was in good shape . We would play here again

Need to play this course a second time to know where target areas are on the course.

Tight fairways. Some holes are below you and some are above you. Yard markers are hard to find sometimes/ 150 marker is easy to find.

Greens need to be watered more.Dead areas around green with dirt spots.

Over all I like the course and layout. Can be intimidating the first time your play it.

Carts were in great shape and moved rapidily up and down the hills/cliffs. Great day of golf

Very nice course with great views but course had a lot of bear spots and greens were cut a little long compared to other courses in the area. For the price it was a nice place to play and has some very challenging holes.

Although it's mid summer and the heat is off the charts, this treasure is an ideal location for a summertime challenge. The course is well maintained despite the challenges of heat and monsoon damage. Every hole is unique with undulating narrow fairways or slopping greens. It's a par 70 and the distances from the white tees are perfect for non power hitters to be able to reach the greens in 2 on the par 4's. Every hole has some shade on it to briefly escape the sun and the staff ensure there is plenty of drinking water to stay hydrated. The drink cart is well stocked and very mobile! Tonto's Bar and Grill is not your typical golf course restaurant or bar for that matter! This hidden treasure is staffed with professionals who know how to create a unique dining experience even if you are just in from a grueling round under oppressive heat. The menu offers a culinary delight and the food preparation is phenomenal. I was blown away by the combinations of flavors, quantity and quality of my late lunch! This course will definitely become a part of my "must play" list and Tonto's will be added to my select choices for dining even if I'm not playing golf!
