Course was in okay shape, rough and fairways could have been mowed. Greens were in decent shape for this time year. All around still a good experience...

Although I'm not the best golfer-and in the grand scheme of things, descent at best-this course was a perfect steal! I got it for $10 HOT DEAL and just had to suffer through the heat. WELL WORTH IT! The wildlife was enjoyable and made my bogeys a little more tolerable!

Must play for a good, fun round.

We went off very early in the middle of the week to beat the heat. The pace of play was great and the course for the amount we paid was perfect.

The course had a few bare spots on the fairways but overall the were in good shape. Only complaint would be that the greens still aren't in the best shape and are very bumpy.

I have played Randolph-Dell Urich courses many times and always have the same complaint. Slow play, large gaps between groups, and no Marshall to be found. I believe they have the staff since I had guys there to carry my bag to the cart and clean my clubs after the round. I don't expect that, need that, or want that. This is a city course not a resort. I would much rather put one of those guys to work keeping pace of play going. It was over 100F when we played and sat in heat waiting to hit most shots due to the group in front of us who were out of position most of the day. In the end, they were two holes down. I appreciate that the new management is making great strides in getting and keeping the courses in excellent shape. Now take the next step and give us a Marshall not a bag jockey.

For being a city course, this is probably the best in Tucson. I do have a caveat to this, for the price, you can play better courses. Hot deals are not all that great. But, for being a city course, it's pretty good. Really easy to play. Pretty flat greens, not a whole lot to this course, just a good course in the middle of the city. Check it out if you want, but you aren't missing anything if you don't.

Having played this course while it was under the management of the City of Tucson compared to today...it's worlds apart. From course condition to the professionalism of the staff, it made for a wonderful experience...I will surely be back and will not hesitate to recommend.

One big criticism though...horrible bunkers...where's the sand?

fun layout. great to play a course with mature trees. fairways good, greens were good and fast. don't get too far off of the fairway as there is little to no rough-meaning bare lies. aprons around greens were pretty tight as well. a lot of putting from off the green. nice to be able to walk a course in this area.

My first round here this winter and the course is in very good shape. Quick check-in and starter paired me up with a couple of other singles for a threesome. We waited a bit on many holes with two foursomes ahead of us but that's to be expected. 18 in 4 hours.

I went there last Friday morning. The tee time was 10:44. They put me with 3 other strangers in a group. Looks like they tried to put everyone together, at least two groups before us and the two groups after us were foursomes. We finally teed off at 10:55 and waited every single hole since then. I left at 3:45pm and I didn't finish the last hole because I had to pick up my girlfriend. I can't believe I spent more than 5 hours playing 18 holes. And I can't believe they don't have a marshall to control the time and just let everyone wait in the line. If you don't feel comfortable playing with strangers or you don't like to waste your time, this is not the place you would want to go. I will never go there on a busy day. I have to say the course condition is in a great shape though.

A decent course. Maintenance seems to be slipping. No sand in the bunkers. Restrooms out of order. No beverage cart. Overall impression is that fees are going up but conditions are going down. You can now get better value elsewhere.

I believe that you should shorten the women's tees! I am known as a long driver, but the distance on these holes were frustrating to me, let alone girls that play with me, who are much shorter in hitting distance. We will not be back, unless we hear you have shorten the distance. Our husbands agree & will not be back also!

This course is always in great shape and under amazing management. I was very disappointed this round seeing as how they were delayed 2 hrs behind schedule die to a frost delay in the A.M. This caused backups during my paid round causing a non finished round. I was upset that the course was unable to refund my purchase being outside their website. I would love to play again in the future, if, they are able to warn of non finishing tee times.
