Challenging Yet Rewarding

The course has made a great comeback in conditions since closing a few months ago due to water and cash flow issues. Tees and fairways are in good condition. Some tee shots did not run out much due to wetness of grass on certain holes. Shots into greens were holding, however due to wetness around greens, some shots coming in did not run out at all. Green speeds were good, but certain greens did show need to improve "areas in need".

Overall this is a great golf course especially the inner 9-10 holes with great vistas awaiting the player.

Fun Round

Our first time playing this course. Fairways and most greens in good shape. A few greens had some rough areas but management accommodated this with a local 2-putt rule. A number of holes on front 9 were in the mountain areas and had severe uphill and downhill combinations. Pace of play was great at 3 and 1/2 hours. A fair amount of blind shots so make sure to review the scorecard which provides some tips.

A good day unspoilt

A lovely day, very quiet, few players, we had a 3 1/2 hour round, some problems with the overseeding, they are working on it, I expect things to be perfect soon.

OPEN AGAIN!

The course has reopened after problems with water costs and maintenance, and is in very good shape. Course layout is one of the best offering many varieties of shots at all levels. Fairways were in great shape with tee boxes being worked on and improved. Green speeds were mostly good with some variance on certain greens. The course is well worth playing and enjoying the vistas as you proceed through the middle section of the course.

Kino Springs

This course recently reopened after reseeding and filling in well. Fairways more than decent. Greens fast and true in spite of a few patches. No restaurant , good beverage cart service.

OPEN AND READY FOR PLAY!!

Glad to see the course is open again and available for play. Fairways and greens were in great shape, but fairways needed some mowing. Tee boxes were rough. Green speed was good. Course condition has greatly improved and should continue to get better as maintenance crew continues their work.

Glad to be able to play there again.

This is my favorite golf course. Very relaxing and the scenery is spectacular.

They do a great job of keeping the course maintained with the limited budget they have..

Would love to see a nice restuarant or something to draw more people there.

WHEN WILL KINO SPRINGS REOPEN???

I was very disappointed a few months ago to hear the course had closed, but may reopen in October...??? This course has a great layout with many various types of shots required. Very sad to about the course closing. If at all possible hopefully Kino Springs will reopen and allow play. And hopefully they will also correct and maintain course maintenance from tee to green. When this course is in good condition, it's a great course!!

HOPE TO SEE KINO SPRINGS OPEN AGAIN!!!!

Course Showing Lack of Water

One of my favorite courses when course conditions are maintained. Over the last 3-4 months, course was showing very good maintenance tee through greens. As of yesterday, course is showing signs of stress most likely from lack of watering especially tee boxes and fairways. Grass around greens remains watered and greens were in good shape, hard and firm, and rolled well. If the watering issues continue, it will be sad to see the course in a few weeks.

I love this course !!!

I now live in Arivaca in the winters and thought I would have to play in

Green Valley or Tucson. I was at Haven in October and someone said "I bet you'd like Kino Springs"

so I checked it out. Wow were they right,

I love everything about the place.

the greens are fast and a challenge. (gotta be below the hole dummy)

the layout is fabulous......especially the secluded 5th through 13th

miles of hilly desert around you, with holes up over down and through arroyos

trees, deer, javalina, skunk, gophers, and tons of birds.

its heaven man.

Yes I have to drive a little over an hour to play

but it was so worth it every time.

check it out.

(there is even a rumor that the grill will be opening next season !)

Kino Springs. An interesting course.

Nice challenging layout. Accuracy off the tee from hole 5 thru 13 are a must. Validated by the warning sign that indicates if you enter, abandon all hope. Once you know the angles, it’s a course you can enjoy.

Most unfortunate that they don’t have a restaurant because there isn’t much near it. Pro shop and beverage cart staff were very polite and accommodating.
