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?

Regardless of the wind, gusts to 25+, the pace of play was very good and pin placement was friendly. Have played Randolph many times; it has been and remains one of my favorites; well maintained and a challenge for every golfer.

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.

They REALLY need to put in another set of forward tees. I'm an 18 handicap but playing at 5952 yards is just too long. The game was less enjoyable than it could have been had there been an option of playing from tees Round 5200-5400 yards. I will not be back due to this.

It is unfortunate that they have foursomes going out every 4 minutes. It takes a lot of fun out of the game when every tee box is stacked with at least one foursome waiting to hit.

The course was in good shape. It was cart path only so we expected the play to be moderately slow but it was compounded by a threesome that was extremely slow. It took us over 5 hours to play the round and we had to wait at least 10 minutes for them to play our shots on almost all of the back 9. There wasn't a group in front of them for the last 8 holes. We never say a marshal on the course monitoring speed of play.
