The course was recently over seeded but played well . It’s a yearly thing here in Tucson . The staff was great, felt right at home !
Pace of play
The pace of play absolutely needs to improve to play a full 18 holes dont make any other plans for the next 3 hours overal the course is in great shape the greens are slow and need to be mowed slightly down to make it a little faster but i will still play this course its a fun course
Course is only playing Front Nine twice at present time. That created backlogs at numerous holes. Constructions has been ongoing for months at end! Really wish they could finish up the project as this course is really one of my favorites!
On 9/6/20 we showed up and were told that 1/2 the course was closed. Not the front 9 or back 9, but physically they closed 1/2 the course and made 9 holes out of the 1/2 that was open. This was not anywhere on the website when making the reservation. We were to start @ 808am and we didn't tee off until around 830am. It took 5 hours to play 18 holes. The scorecard didn't match the holes we played, so it was difficult to know if we were on a par 4 or 5. Then, after 9 holes of waiting before we could hit our 2nd and 3rd shots, the attendant told us 3 times to hurry up and tee off because he "had people waiting". We knew there were people waiting, as we were waiting the entire time we were playing. It is never nice to be told to hurry up and wait. The pair my friend and I were paired up with were great, and the greens were good. I would only play this course again when it is back to 18 holes, whenever that may be. I will always from this date on call before making a reservation, regardless of where we are playing.
Good low budget course, back nine was being worked on so that was the biggest downfall.
Dirt fairways. Not mowed around greens. Standing water in fairways from watering grass. Tee boxes not mowed. No distance markers on course.
Got charged twice for the round. First by tee off then by the course. I told them it was prepaid and they said they don’t do that so I gave them my card and got charged again. Then the round, conditions and pace was so bad I left after 9 holes.
Maybe a just a off day
Paid for a full 18, got there and they only allowed to play the front 9 twice. Wouldn't have been so bad if a lot of the holes fairways were completely mud.
Work in progress
Getting ready to open the back nine and start on the front nine. This will soon be a great course. Great staff. Friendly professional
No reference on Tee Off when reserved about only 9 holes available and cow pasture fairways. Nines were switched so my SkyDroid distance tool was useless.
Staff was friendly but I would not have reserved if knowledge of these deficiencies. I understand there were winter grass issues.
Staff was friendly enough. Should have had a “caution warning” when customer reserving. We quit after nine holes.
This has always been my favorite course to play. Over the years I have probably played here over 50 times. Even though you guys are still working on the course it still looks pretty good. Every time I play there it gets better every time. Can’t say enough about the staff there either very happy all the time and makes playing there better.
Good price but overcrowded
They only had 9 holes open so with a 7 am tee time you end up running into the 9 am tee time players when you come around to play the same 9 holes again. We quit after waiting in line behind a couple of groups. I have figures out that whenever you see a really cheap rate that there is definetly a reason. We had fun though and still played 3 hours of golf
Almost not playable
The course should notify Golfnow that 9 holes are currently CLOSED due to the city of Tucson fixing a drainage ditch. The back 9 was the only side open. Additionally, the course fairways were literally dirt and mud with very few patches of actual grass. Disappointing and further disappointing from golfnow with no alerts.
The. Course is only open on the back, which I did not know when booking. The course I'd in the worst condition I've ever seen, I withhold nor recommend playing this course until at least the end of the year.
