Expect to lose some balls. Lots of big, forced carries off the tee from the blacks which is not a problem other than on quite a few holes you can't see much of the landing area and sometimes small misses are penalized severely. Wasn't a fan either of all the par 3's being 200 yards from the blacks. Course conditions were great and there are water coolers on every other hole which is welcome when it's 103 degrees! Overall a beautiful course with great Mountain and city views.

The course was in great shape. Played from the middle tees so driver could not be used except on the long par fours and par fives. Ball placement was very important from the tees as the fairways sloped severely from side to side.

I would definitely play again when in Tucson.

Wonderful layout, friendly staff from outside services to Pro shop and on course Marshall and Starter.

The Rattler is a great test of Golf, the only drawback today was the recent aeration of the Green and the sand applied to them made them somewhat slower and bumpier than the second nine that we played.

Looking forward to playing this course again and again.

Starr Pass is a gem for real golfers. The fact that you have to occasionally have to carry your tee off over some patch of desert is actually huge plus.

Layout is great but no gimmicks.

With Arizona National, those are 2 best modestly priced courses in Tucson.

Great course, very friendly staff.

You do need to pay attention to the entire hole layout.

There are some forced carries and a lay-up may be the best option.

Really enjoyed playing the Rattler and Roadrunner courses. Rattler is fairly generous off the tee, but just every approach had a carry to the green, w/ little bail out room. The non-green desert area's dense and unplayable. Forget about looking for a wayward ball. Was a fun course, in good condition, looking forward to plying it again.

This combo of 9 hole courses proved to be quite the challenge, but it was gorgeous and a good test of skills. Would like to have not lost so many balls, though.

We are not low handicappers and still had a great time on this course. The course is definitely challenging and although there are holes that require carry and you can't see the green the staff will provide you with a course guide to help you. If you enjoy a challenging course I highly recommend this one. The Marriott facility is very nice and the bar/restaurant had great food.
