This experience was consistent with Ocotillo's normal high standards. Course was well maintained and well managed by the staff. The course and surroundings are beautiful and bring a new meaning to "Arizona Golf". On the subject of course layout, it would be helpful if there could be included a set of men's tees that are somewhat shorter than the current men's tees (that are NOT the ladies tees!). The issue is that since there are a great number of holes where the approach shot to the green is over water, many of us older guys are consistently forced to lay up rather than risking a long shot over water. This might also improve the pace of play. A similar additional set of tees might also be appreciated by the ladies.

Record temps didn't dissuade us.

Played Blue/White, t times 9:45, 9:54. I booked for 6 golfers.

Pace was slower than we are used to but the course was in excellent shape. Greens were true, dead patches nonexistent, first cut of rough fair.

We played with a gentleman who had some course knowledge which made the round even sweeter. Got to play the 3 wood off the tee or you are in the water!

Didn't enter the clubhouse except to pay for the round. $85.00 per golfer per 18 was fine.

Will return to the course.

Thank you for your review. I am so glad you enjoyed your round with us. I am curious, we have a time par of 4 hours and 10 minutes. When I looked at the tee sheet for that day, we were on that pace at your tee time. Is the information we are provided incorrect?

I played with three friends here for spring training and golf, and Ocotillo Golf Club was a great choice. The Course was in great shape and the staff was friendly. It was a great value for the price. The water hazards made the course challenging requiring shot making decisions to avoid the hazards. I would play this course again and recommend the course to all.

Course in excellent condition, layout somewhat challenging, and greens "tough" but puttible. Had a lot fun playing with our paired twosome from Canada. Starter and cart employees nice and professional. The only issue I have is the price of the "refreshments" .

Staff is very rude. Pro shop attendant had a terrible attitude... starter acted like he was lost when we got to the first tee for our morning tee time. Sent a 2 some in front of us then a 2 some behind us, we were a 4 some so of course the group in front of us is gonna take off and the group behind us is going to be on our tails... Got to the 5th hole was asked to pick up the pace by the Marshal when we were on pace to play the first 9 in an hour and forty five mins... finished the round at three hours and forty five mins... being in the business that's a very fast round for a 4 some... felt rushed all day with the Marshal breathing down our necks. Not a good experience, and definitely not driving 45 mins to play this course every again.

Awesome course in awesome shape. There is a lot of water but also a lot of beautiful green grass and beautiful greens. Fairways are generous so water comes into play when you hit a bad shot a deserve water anyway. Way better course than the desert courses with rock and cactus when you hit a bad shot. Staff is super friendly and welcoming and pace of play is watched closely by friendly player assistants. Plyed in 3:50 and teed off at 7:48am. I highly recommend and will play here every year.

This was a very enjoyable course to play. There is water on almost every hole, however it is very playable. The course setting is amazing as the water and the course weave through the homes in a most picturesque manner. Would definitely want to play again.

I used to love this course, however this year we noticed that it was not quite up to what we had come to expect. I heard it will no longer be a troon course and it was just sold. This could be the reason, hopefully they keep it well maintained.
