Pace of play

Extremely slow, they needed a course Marshall, waited at least 5-10 mins a hole on every one!
Course was rough, greens were ok.

Course is pretty good shape

I have played this course many times over the last 20 years. I have always enjoyed it. My only issue is that many of the areas are dry and or dead. I understand that this is the desert. But over all, one of my favorite city courses. 2 thumbs up.

Overall experience great. Greens in good condition and ran true. Bunkers a bit hard and crusty. Pace of play was quick for the time of year. Would play again when price drops.

Just OK

It did not help that there was an hour and half frost delay. Greens were slow. Traps inconsistent. Pace of play ok. Temporary green with no advance notice.

Course needs some TLC

I enjoy the layout of Silverbell, but the course could use more attention to maintenance. There are too many areas of bare dirt on the course and the bunkers could use a little more sand.

Bataan Death March

The course had very little control over the number of people playing, and the course was overloaded. No Ranger, so play was intolerably slow on a Friday afternoon. It took us three hours to complete 9 holes, so we walked off the course after nine, so we could make our dinner reservation. Very disappointing!

They didn’t tell us it was cart path only until we got there and paid $40

Upon arrival is when they told us that it was cart path only today, no sooner. Being over 100 degrees and walking more then expected, turned into a 5 hour round in the sun. They should’ve told us at he booking or at least lower the rate, since I paid $40 to walk all day long. The pace of play sucked and I was exhausted by the 14 th hole. Then there was no beverage cart person at all on the back 9, and the water fountains were in very poor conditions

Very neglected course

Fairways are largely dirt. Greens are overrun with a yellow, purple flower. Several tee boxes under water.It took marshall 10 holes to catch 4 guys playing with one set of clubs. 5 hours to play 18 holes. No ettiquette, had to yell at forward golfers to rake traps. Not a cheap round . Last time there. Too many great courses in Tucson.

Winter conditions at the moment

Nice facility in a beautiful setting, without the typical desert rough. Greens starting to come in and in fairly good condition. Fairways hard-pack to OK. Fist cut of rough, mostly muck. Pace of play slow. Lots of couples.

Dry nice design and layout

Greens need care. They are bump and not true. Bunkers need sand and consistency. Fairways were OK. Tee boxes were also OK

good course for the money

Had a lot of fun at this course.The course had a few bald spots around front edge of greens and around bunkers and those were very hard to play cause of how hard but other then that it's a great city course to run out on and sneak in some holes...when I went at 130 in the afternoon it was dead weather was rain and thunder in the area but a few people still out...I got done in about or less than 3 hours.
