We left after nine holes, as the pace of play was incredibly slow. The Starter/Ranger did nothing to speed up a foursome two groups ahead of us. We had three groups stacked up behind us. Finally, my husband gave up on seven out of frustration,, and I joined the group in front of us to finish at least the front nine. They were equally upset as we were. An expensive nine holes, as we were looking forward to playing 18.

Nice course, good shape, however, I was shocked that my tee time was part of a shotgun start, and not part of a tournament.... no mention of this during my booking.... I would not have booked if I would have known that in advance as I prefer to start at hole 1.... maybe that's why they don't tell you.....

We are so sorry to read that your experience was less than exceptional. Your comment has been forwarded to upper management, and we do apologize for any miscommunication. We do our best to advise of shotgun starts whether it is on the internet tee time or if one was to call in to schedule a tee time. However, sometimes the "hot deals" on the internet do not list the tee time as a shotgun start. Hopefully this is an issue that can be resolved soon. We do hope you will give us another chance sometime. (For future reference, we have regular tee times Fri - Tues with shotguns on Wed and Thur.) We look forward to seeing you soon.

I like everything about the course. The only negative was when I checked in for my tee time I was informed that there would be a shotgun start. My group was to start on 12A. In other words, we were the first of two groups starting on hole 12. The hole in front of us had 2 groups as well. I have no idea how many holes were that way. The pace was fine as we played in 4.5 hrs but if I'd know it was going to be a shotgun start I probably wouldn't have booked a tee time at this course.

Nice course, friendly staff. 2.5 hours to play front nine, I left after, despite paying for 18. No course marshalls. I had an 88 year old man in my group, and he was complaining about slow play.

Recommend course management puts a marshall out on the course to maintain pace of play. It really was horrible, and there are just too many other options here in Tucson that are under 5 hours.

The place is aptly-named, though. It's gorgeous.

the course was in great shape. traps were good. greens were fast but true. tee boxes were level and cut just right. need a cart as long distance from green to next tee box. 5 different lengths on each hole, mid length was best for challenge and quick play. DO NOT go on WED afternoon at 1pm as they shotgun start cause course is closed in morning for mens league. we had to start on hole 7. no choice ! finish on 6 then drive in. little crazy !!! golf good start stinks !!!
