If you are looking for a real golf challenge, you will be served, especially if you play from the black or back tee. Very great course design! A must to play if you are staying in this area.

A little tight and the greens could have used some work, a tad slow and bumpy but overall a spectacular layout. it helped a lot to play with a local as there are many blind shots.

Played the Blacks (70.7/135/6331) on the Rattler/Roadrunner 9's in 3H. The weather was overcast and well into the 90's by the time I was finishing around 9:30.

The customer service was excellent from all encountered, especially Mac the starter and Adam in the Pro Shop. Nice grass driving range that is included with your fee complete with a good chipping/practice green area.

My 1st time here, I was advised beforehand that this is not the course to play to lower your handicap. Even though this course is not long, it is tight with lots of semi blind shots. The 135 slope from the next to the back tees was well deserved. Many forced carries over nativescape hazards, and every hole has red or white stakes down both sides. Also numerous holes where you cannot see the green from the tee, having played the course before would be a huge asset.

The Bermuda tees were mostly good, however several had large patches of hardpan.

Same for the Bermuda fairways. 95% was good bordering on excellent... the other 5% was bare ground, with nothing in between.

The Bermuda rough was lush and penal because the ball usually sat down in it.

The sand traps were a clay dirt mixture that looked good and they played excellent, immaculately maintained.

The mostly elevated green complexes still showed the effects of a recent punching. However, they putted better than they looked, medium speed and fairly smooth. I saw the lines well on these greens and had a good putting day.

This is desert target golf on steroids. A course to play if you want to be tested. Definitely not a course for beginners or someone who cannot get the ball in the air or hit it fairly straight. Recommended with all the above in mind.

We have played several rounds on this course every summer for the past 5 years. The course today is in the worst condition we have ever seen it. Perhaps it's the new minimum wage and sick time accrual laws that took effect this year in Arizona.....but clearly the grounds staff have been cut to a bare minimum AND the greens truly suck (there's no other way to describe them). Clipped grasses from mowing covered the roughs, the fairways were okay, but the greens were in horrible condition.....several were browned out and recently painted, they had lots of roughed up areas on them. In the past the greens had always been the best part. We won't be back again this year and perhaps not next.

My foursome has always enjoyed playing Starr Pass, but this time was disappointing for a couple reasons. First of all, the course was beat up and the driving range was closed because of the rain, but that couldn't be helped and is understandable.

The two issues were asking if there would be beverage cart service and then we never saw one. When we made the turn they told me the cart person was off at 3 and we didn't tee off until 2, so if we had known that we would had ordered things to drink and taken them out with us.

When we went into the bar at the turn we stood around five minutes waiting for someone and I finally walked over to the restaurant and heard laughing coming from the entry way to the kitchen and I asked if there anyone working in the bar and they said he was back there and would be over.

All in all pretty poor service in both instances.

Course was great. Teed off at 7:10AM. First thing I noticed, the staff. They were great! The starter was entertaining and made us feel welcome from the minute we got to our tee (which was a good hike away from the pro shop). This course is a challenge. I'm an 18 and finished with a 95 (4 lost balls included). I've only been in Tucson for 6 weeks and have played 4 courses, so my sample size is small, but the greens here were the best I've played. They rolled fast and true. The views were great and each hole, for the most part, felt like its own experience. The last par 3 on the Coyote 9 was my favorite on the course. Overall, a quality experience and for the summer rate price, I'll be back a few more times this year. Kudos to the staff and the grounds crew.
