Getting ready for overseeding

As always, fun and pleasant to play. Staff and facilities are top notch. Condition was as good as could be expected, given overseeding starts this weekend. We play here whenever we can and our home course isn’t available, but it’s a long drive. Thanks!

Fun playable course

This course is a blast. Definitely challenging yet rewards you with forgiveness when you need it on a few holes. Greens where in amazing shape although on the slow side. Fairways were overall in really good shape with the exception of some dirt patches they had blocked off where they where in the process of laying sod. They had about 6 or so people out there working to put sod in though so looks like they are trying to improve the conditions. I'll be back to play again, worth the $30 for an early tee time.

The greens were above average but the rest of the course was sketchy at best. I like the layout but would not recommend it at this time.

Poor Conditions....Great Price

I got a great deal for this round and early tee time. Now the bad, poor bunker conditions, bare spots in fairway and tee boxes in terrible conditions. On a positive note the greens were in great condition. This is not the first time I played this course and informed the staff in the past that the bunkers were in poor condition and apparently this fell on deaf ears.

Great experience

Course has beautiful views and very challenging holes all in all a great experience. Hats off to a very friendly and helpful staff especially the two young gentlemen working as the Starter. On the down side a number of fairways had dried brown sections but I expected that this time of the year. I will definitely play this course again.

Used to play course a lot. It is always challenging. Typical summer course grooming problems but no worse than most better than some.

What a round

I got a great rate to play 18 at this wonderful course.
It was my first time playing and the starter couldve been a lot more helpful placing me with my group, but once I was out golfing I really enjoyed the experience. Its a very hard course to keep the ball in play unless you know the course well... laying up is recommended!
The course was in summer rehab, so the conditions werent great but that was fine as the price was low and the course was great even though under repair.
The views are incredible, absolutely stunning. the layout was fantastic... just a lot of blind tee shots which is tough for a first timer. The golfers I encountered were friendly, pace was great, overall great vibe... I think they should just train their starters and cart jockeys to treat first timers as new customers instead of “newbies” Then I wouldve given the place 5 stars... I would definately reccomend.... oh and you can drive the green on #1.

AZ National

Wonderful views of the East side of Tucson nestled in the Catalina mountain foothills. This course is where folks like Annika Sorenstam, Jim Furik, Lorena Ochoa, Rory Sabatini practiced for the University of AZ.
Bring extra balls. The course layout has several blind tee's and quite a few 200 + yard carries from the back tees. Large greens with lots of breaks that ore not obvious around the cup. This course is a challenge even for scratch golfers.
Did I mention the awesome views?

Challenging course

One of my favorite courses, as it sits at the foothills of Mount Lemmon. The course is fun, yet a little challenging playing for the back tees, from beginning to end. Most holes have elevation changes, tough bunkers and tucked away pins. Overall a great course as the staff is friendly, they keep up with maintenance, and try to keep pace moving; course is well worth for the money.

Is this the best golf deal in Arizona?

They were renovating some of the teeboxes and had recently punched the greens thus the average rating for conditions otherwise I would have rated the course good.
It's a good track, difficult from the tips but very scorable from the whites.
Playing a Robert Trent Jones course in the shadow of the Santa Catalinas for 22 bucks, could be the best deal in Arizona.

Good course, horible bunkers

Overall thecourse was in good shape. Many of the tee boxes were under construction so had to move to a forward tee. The bunkers were very wet, compacted and not in playable shape.
