Tres Rios GC at Estrella Mountain Park is rich with dense forestry including eucalyptus, mesquite, and pine trees as well as cottonwoods. The course has a parkland-style layout with rolling fairways lined with trees and undulating greens that are medium-sized and fast. To add more challenge to the golf course, water hazards and bunkers come into play on several holes. The par-4 seventh hole is considered the most difficult driving hole on the course. There are stately trees off the tee and the second shot is to a narrow sloping green. Tres Rios GC at Estrella Mountain Park features multiple tee boxes for a variety of different golfing options.

Wet Play

Sprinklers spraying when I'm trying to play. Greens were aerated and I wasn't told that the course was being repaired.

Horrible condition

Course is in really bad shape. They should be more honest to the public. Post pictures of the current course conditions. Dry fairways, greens and tee boxes. Debris everywhere. Edges untrimmed etc.. I've been coming here for years and the course has always had its ups and downs but, this by far is the lowest I've seen it, enough to make me never return

Great course layout when kept up.

Today the course was in horrible condition. The tee boxes are all dead grass or dirt. The fairways are dead or dying. Hole #2 has a water leak.

Dried out

Aerification delayed, course probably hadn't been watered in 2 weeks, drives would roll forever (good) but greens wouldn't make a ball mark even if you dropped a ball from an airplane, but given the price, ok I guess.

Poor Greens and Tee box

Majority of tee boxes in which you want to use an iron it is difficult to find grass to hit off of. A lot of the Greens are bumpy and bald. If you just want to get out and play the price is good But the course is a little rough around the edges.
