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.

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.

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.

Of the 5 city courses Silverbellisnimber 2 on my list behind Del Urich. It has a nice flow to the holes. It is seriously lacking in yardage markers and the bunkers were pretty much unplayable either due to being full of water or being hard as cement. Some long challenging par 4 holes if you are playing from either of the back two boxes and mid range par threes. All in all Silverbell is always an enjoyable and challenging round of golf.

The course is moderately challenging but the sand traps were cement. There needs to be more yardage markers on the course. Pictures of holes need to be on scorecard. If you never played this course before you would not know where the green to Hole #11 is.

It's a great layout, the only problem being the condition of the sand traps, which are close to unplayable.

Since the weather was cold/rainy, the course was wide open which was great, since the weather became good quickly. The greens were in great shape and the fairways were also in top shape. I got a very good "Hot Deal" so the entire experience was fantastic.

This is not my favorite course in Tucson, but it is always a good and challenging time.

Friendly staff and a windy day made for a pretty fast round as there were not a lot of golfers out. Course was a little dry and bunkers were mostly hard packed sand/mud, but not too bad otherwise. Greens were in good shape. I paid $40 including tax and a cart, so for the money, it was a pretty good deal.

Greens, fairways, and cart paths were in good condition. Only negative was that the bunkers had virtually no sand. Fix this and the course becomes a four rating. Also, Silverbells has an excellent practise facility superior a great many non-municipal courses.

I hadn't played Silverbell for a while and I was pleasantly surprised. We got off on time and played our round in four hours, with no long waits at any tee. The fairways and greens were in good, if not outstanding condition, no worse than many of the surrounding courses, and better than many. I played off the whites, which suited my handicap, although I found a few holes quite long. I didn't use it, but the food cart came around about four times over the eighteen holes. Although I rode, I've walked other times and can attest that the course is very walkable. Like other Tucson public courses, Silverbell has helpers who rush to load and unload your cart. They seem unnecessary and inappropriate to me.

Down from the NW for some sun. Played with a wonderful couple from Illinois. A little slow but we were in no hurry. A couple of times it was not obvious where the next hole was. Could use more yardage markers.<br/> Staff was wonderful<br/> Will definitely play again.
