Tres Rios GC at Estrella Mountain Park (formerly known as Estrella Mountain Golf Course) 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.

No safe during pandemic

In the current pandemic situation, Tres Rio has decided to charge an extra $5 per person to have their own cart. Every other course in the area promotes players to not share carts to keep everyone safe, yet Tres Rios is all in it for the money. VERY disappointed in this decision. I will go to Wigwam, El Mirage, Sundance or Coldwater to golf safely and pay less at a much better course.

Tres Rios play

Tres Rios is a very fun course to play, it has everything you want as a goler. If you hit the ball long it plays great, has really good par 3's. You can't beat the affordability of this course.
The greens are better than most expensive courses

Good for the price and would go back

Sometimes hard to tell where the next tee box was. Most greens really thick grass some were a little worn down. Good value for the price and would play here again.

They wouldn’t even give you a pencil,

They won’t give you a pencil. Fairways where either dry and hard causing balls to bounce funny or over grown slowing down low runners. Greens where hard, but slow very sandy very. Haven’t played there in years. Will be a few more before I go back.

Tres Rios

Similar to golfing on a construction site, not much of a fairway, lots of weeds all over, lots of dirt patches mixed in with the fairway, greens were awful, course looked like it was on it's last legs, no scorecards or pencils were give to to virus? No ranger and a foursome snuck in front of us so we had to constantly wait on the front 9.

Cheap, get what you pay for...

The staff was awesome! The course was a bit rough, the pace of play was horrible. They were triple booked from the app Golf Now. But the we felt pressure from people behind us and we were pressuring the people in front of us. No houses so great for new players. Fairways and green are ok, but if your in the rough, it’s very rough lol. But lots of fun and some what challenging. Would not play again. But the $30 value was the best in town.

Greens in transition

The pace of play was a little slow with a foursome, followed by 2 twosomes, then my twosome. Took about 4 hours 20 minutes. I like the layout, although the greens are in the transition between the winter rye and Bermuda, so they weren’t in the best condition. However, the tee boxes and fairways are in nice shape. The course is doing a good job with social distancing and keeping people from touching objects.

First time playing here.. last time..

I truly hate be so negative, but the only good thing about this round was the gentleman I was paired with. We waited on every hole, and of course, no marshal to be found. The greens were terrible. The course layout is boring, and missing a shot put you on hardpan. There really was nothing good I can say about this course.
