Fred Enke Golf course

The worst course I have ever played.
Very poor condition, greens were extremely slow, no signage to direct you to the next tee, no amenities, not enough drinking water in the course.
For s few dollars more, you can go play a quality course.
I would not recommend this course to anyone.

Horrible round of golf

The fairways were awful, 1 restroom on the course per side, over priced for a city public course, had 2 carts break down on us and the clubhouse closed at 3 before we made the turn to get a snack or go use the restroom. Poor operation. I will never go back not even for a free round.

Great course, needs more drinking water on course.

Played many times *
The course is very nice. It is evident that the new management has been pouring lots work into Fred Enke. The staff is friendly and helpful. My only suggestion, management needs to add better drinking water options along the course. I understand money can be tight with public courses, however when the only drinking water is old, out dated drinking fountains, many people are forced to bring their own water. Not to mention, the fountains are placed in direct sunlight and the water is blazing hot. A simple fix is to add 9 or so large water jugs at every other tee box.
I generally bring my own drinks, but having the peace of mind that I don't have to ration my water throughout the course would be greatly appreciated. That Tucson sun is brutal, water is essential when you golf in Southern Arizona.
The ice water in the Club House is nice,
especially as you approach hole 10. Although many players don't like to stop after 9. Having water jugs along the course can be very attractive to those players.
To close, the course is in great shape and I love playing here. Just add some good drinking water along the course.

Target Golf

Fun golf course even though there are a few holes that seem a bit quirky. I've never been a fan of par 5's that take driver out of your hand. The two front side par 5's are just weird...but don't let that discourage you, three shot par 5's test your patience and can be fun as well! The sand traps should be filled in and just made to be grass bunkers, they are never playable...concrete!

Overall, this course grows on you and is a good test!

Best Tucson muni

Greens were very slow. Otherwise, course is in good shape and the only true desert muni in Tucson. Couple of forced carries that can be tough for seniors. Otherwise, a gem.

best bang for the buck

the course is the best muni I have played in Tucson and the price was right. I would pick this one far more often if it were a little closer to where I stayed.

I found the staff to be friendly, but not really forthcoming and I saw the cart girl just once. The cafe/bar was closed when I finished my round at 4:05, alas.

fun course to play

I enjoy this course; each hole is different and some have extremely challenging features (like, you can't see what's ahead of you without driving up and taking a look and there are some St. Andrews bunkers!). You'll have a good chance of seeing wildlife, too. Now, the disadvantages: poorly marked holes and limited directional signs (showing where to go for the next hole); would be challenging to walk, as there is some distance between holes; cafe closed by 4 pm; only one bathroom (hole 7 and 15), but lots of cover you could use if needed! Greens were in great condition; fairways in moderately good condition. Overall, well worthwhile to golf here.

This course is fun and has an interesting layout.

For a city course, this is a great buy as well as having some very interesting hole layouts with varying elevations, doglegs, and green play. They don't have a yardage book but you can print a course layout on the website or just consult the map at each hole. Enjoyed playing here several times and will continue.
