First the man checking me in tried to change the conditions of my play from riding to walking and from 18 holes to 9. The greens were rough, like playing plinko, the ball bounced around. The fairways were practically non existent, more sand and weeds than grass. I was the only one on the course so the pace of play was really not an issue.
Not worth your time
Course very run down. Broken, leaning flags on greens worse than most fairways. Most off green shots are on gravel. One green was half sand, and most greens don't appear mowed and have weeds growing in them. Don't waste your time here.
Short Iron work!!
Quail Canyon is so bad it is almost not even a golf course!
However , while the greens are really bad they are very small and great for getting your Irons dialed in. If you can hit these greens you can hit any greens. Another positive is that there is almost never anyone else there you can hit two or three tee shots at each hole if you would like!! It’s also great to bring new golfers without the pressure to hurry along.
Quail Canyon GC was not in good shape. It looked like no one cared to keep it up!
Could be a fun little par 3 course if in better shape.
Peaceful and no pressure from other people
The only problem I had (besides my game of course!) was #5. Turns out #5 & #14 are the same T box. From the cart path I was on I could see the info for#14 and the back of another rusty sign. Finally on a different path I discovered the front of that rusty sign was #5 info. It would have been nice if this was shown on the map or explained to me. Also would have been nice to know the white markers were the first nine and red markers the back nine.... could have figured out my T box dilemma much easier.... because the front and back nine are surrounded by each other.
Not So Good
This is the first time that my wife and I have played this course and it will be the last. Very simple executive part three course which we played in under two hours. Good as far as all that goes but the condition of the greens was terrible including one which was partially covered with sand for some reason. Could be so nice as it is in its own secluded little valley but no effort has been put into maintaining the course.
Every hole is between 100-150 yards
Bring your desert set.
Tee boxes are mostly dirt, with dead grass and markers to hit between.
Fairways? Non existent, but it's a par 3.
There is a dirt cart path somewhere, but you can't tell if it's the path or what supposed to be the fairway.
Greens....well, they are green thanks to the paint. All dead grass.
The "greens" are very small. There is only 1-2 cups per green and I'm sure they switch positions yearly. The cups were all dug out a few inches wider than what they should be.
No ball washers, and the only trash can was overflowing. Probably hadn't been emptied in weeks.
Mostly regulars play, and they know the deal. We played through 4-5 groups and finished 18 in 1:30.
This course could be good
I feel like this course should be part of a KOA camp ground , the greens are spotty and patchy , the flags don't all stand up straight in the hole , I think that is due to the wind which in turn has made the flag stick elongate the hole . But on a bright note this is a cheap east way to work on your short game (145 & less minus putting ). It's like playing target golf and the greens are small so you have to be right on
Golf now advertised fee included cart. There were only 4 carts for the entire course. We were provided pull carts with some handles not properly drilled to fit the bolt needed.
Unless I missed it you failed to disclose that this was a par 3 course. The property was poorly maintained.
Different but challenging
This course gave an opportunity to practice our iron shots and putting on not so perfect greens. We enjoyed the challenge and it only took 2 hours. In the Az heat, this is a good thing. We will go back. How can you go wrong for the price?
This course should really be taken off Golfnow list and whoever is giving this a good review is not being honest. Not mentioned in the information is that this course doubles as a "Frisbee golf" so that you have to wait for them to "hurl off" before you tee off.
I can only describe it as 'the worst Golf Course I have ever played" but I am sure it is probably rated as the best "Frisbee golf" course around.
The reservation has a cart involved, and when we got there they said they were out of carts. I ended up paying a lot more for a round and didn't even get a cart. Bad service, terrible greens. There was sand everywhere on the greens, and spotty grass everywhere.
Quail Canyon Golf Course Review, Tucson, AZ
The course was the worst condition I have ever experienced. It was as if it had been abandoned. The fairways, greens and tee boxes were in a state of disrepair. It was apparent that the course received little, if any, water. Greens were totally unplayable. The owner should either shut down the course or spend some money and make it playable. I would not recommend this course to anyone, even if you could play on it for free. I would also suggest to GolfNow not to bother including this course as one of its offers.
Failed to meet my minimum expectations
We checked the web site before booking and didn't have the highest expectations. We were greeted by a less than engaging man at the pro shop, who said our cart may or may not have enough power to make it sound the course.... Who said he didn't know if there was anyone working "if" something did go wrong. Who said the restaurant has not been open for 3 years.....
For a par 3 course, sometimes it is the people who make a difference and we did not find this to be so at this GC.
