1st time out this since the shutdown.
Good spacing. Could have more hand sanitizer around the clubhouse and perhaps on the course itself.
Paid for the round indoors and staff member didn't wear a mask. I saw two other staff with masks. One at the food area and the other cleaning carts.
Driving range lacked grass to tee up on.
They cleaned carts when they came in but there is a lack of direction as to which carts are clean or not.
Course needs some TLC. I suspect it will get better in time.
Wow course looked great!! Best I’ve seen since I’ve ever played it !! Wanted to play another 18 .please go and play this course
Great course for the value
This isn’t the Omni by any means. The course is in great shape though. The fairways and greens were all lush and green. This is an extremely open course as well. This is nice for when you hit off center shots because you always have a decent lie to the green. I’ll be back.
Staff is always very friendly and make you feel welcome
Course under construction
Just a heads up, it was under construction when I last played it. I wish the fairways had some more give.
Good friendly staff
The staff is berry good however was filled rushed by the group behind us over all very good course
El Rio Tucson
Tucson has 5 city run courses with this being the least desirable. Personal are great, but it's just a old course that has run it's course so to speak. Several years ago our city council had a chance to sell this land for a new Private college. that did end up in the Phx. area. and doing extremely well. One more reason why this city will not excel. Save your money and play elsewhere.
Great city course. Has tee boxes for all levels of experience. Friendly staff . Greens in great shape. Played course 5 times enjoyed every round
Go somewhere else
I don’t mean any disrespect at all to this course and the personal - and I may be spoiled from going to starr Pass or Dove Mountain, Ventana Canyon and Arizona National - but this course just feels like something the city should be giving away for free. The staff was nice, but the course is a 1 out of 10. Sand traps are more like concrete buckets, and the holes are so close together that the chances of you either hitting someone or you getting hit by a ball is pretty good. Greens were actually pretty decent, but the layout was awful.
This was a decent course to play for a straight flat course.
Lots of sand.
Robert, Manager is very welcoming. All staff were very friendly. Very good lunch--much improved
Fairways and structures in need of TLC.
Greens and green aprons are in very good shape. It would appear that management is concentrating their resources in this area. Sadly, fairways are a different issue, very thin turf with weeds growing up above the grass. Rough is bare packed dirt in a lot of cases. My best description of the fairways is over grazed pasture. El Rio Clubhouse and other structures have been in place along time and show their age. Maybe some more money in the maintenance budget would help with fairways etc. However, finance for Municipal Courses is what it is. I would not mind paying higher green fees if course was in better condition. However, as it is, I will not be back.
