Nice Municipal course with very nice staff. Course was in better shape than Club West(played day before this), and enjoyed the layout of the course. There is not a "true" set of red tee boxes(Red tees are 5900 yards), so people that are used to playing these should play the Dell Urich course which is located on the same directly next to the North course. Tree lined on some holes, not a desert course, but more like you would see from a traditional course.


Player Tip: Pay attention to the wash area/hazard in front of the 9th and 18th greens!

New OB Sports Management has made a tremendous impact at the facility. Carts with GPS system were a nice surprise for a municipal golf course. Course conditions were much improved making this a real deal with overall satisfaction for tees, fairways and greens.

A golfing oasis in the city with your choice of courses. Randolph North is slightly longer 6,436 (white) and mostly flat fairways compared to Dell Urich. The greens are moderately fast and play easier for an intermediate golfer such as myself. Overall a beautiful well kept course that I can expect a par once and a while...fun to play.

I enjoy the dell urich courseonly a this facility, the layout is interesting for me, I took my friends and they said it as the best of all te munis in tucson.
The need more direction signs to some tee boxes as t was not clar to my fiends as to which way to go sometimes.
A great day.


Player Tip: the desert rough is open and the greens were undulatng and can cause long 2nd putts f you don't watch your speed.

OB Sports has taken over the city courses and lifted the bar for other Tucson courses to strive for.
Now if they would just go take over AZ National.
Thanks O. B. Sports.

I brought a guest to Randolph North - finding a good deal on GolfNow that fit hos schedule. I had not played it in years and found many improvements: a much friendlier staff, assistance with bags, course in better condition, good food and beverage service. The driving range is well used but with better ball machines than in the past. Greens are also better. It is a good value municipal golf course.

It is amazing how much the Dell Urich course has been improved. The fairways are completely green with good lies.. The greens are fast and roll true. The rough is dormant grass, which is tough to play out of and a fair penalty for those who can't keep it on the fairway. Congratulations to the city of Tucson for doing such a terrific upgrade to their course.

My hats off to the employees at randolf and dell uric golf courses. Play both courses over the past two days and was very happy with course conditions compared to this time last year. Greens and fairways are in the best shape in years. The outfit that is now running operations is doing a great job. Please continue what your doing, it is not unnoticed.

Only problem I have with these 2 city course is the grass cutting. I've played there 3 times now and it never fails that a guy is cutting around the greens in the middle of the day and he stays with you for at least 6 holes. If I wanted to cut grass I would have stayed home.

Bravo for OB Sports. Amazing what can happen when a course is turned over to private management. The course is in great shape, the staff upbeat & the Tucson day, clear as a bell & 70 degrees. Picture book mountain & course views. The only negative was 'no marshal to keep the players moving. Not a biggie since it gave us time to chat with two player, one from Toronto & the other from Vail.

Obviously, the previous comment left out some very important information. We had a 2 hour frost delay. According to our GPS, the pace of play was 4:10- 4:19.
