Considering the dry spell we have had in southern Arizona, and particularly the Nogales area. The Kino Springs golf course was overall in great shape. The greens were lightning fast, with some nasty pin placements throw in for go measure. Unfortunately the wind picked up later in the day which is common for the area. Overall the mountainous scenery is breathtaking and makes playing or loosing a ball or two more easy to take.

This is the second time that we played here that golfers were playing music on the course . 5 players in a group and no consideration for other players. continue to talk and make noise while trying to tee off or put. No ETIQUETTE what so ever. WILL NOT PLAY THIS COURSE AGAIN. We have been playing this course for years, it has gone down hill. Greens in terrible shape

Greens and tees in great shape, fairways pretty good, traps have actual sand in them. A tricky course the first time around. Beautiful views and pretty remote setting especially at the turn. Carts and pathways need a lot of work.

Course layout is challenging for me (15 handicap). Course being away from it all was in great shape. Fairways green grass and greens smooth and fast. Beverage person was around several times during play . I will definitely be back.

Decent course if you don’t play it during the dry part of the summer. They don’t water the fairways in the summer so your are hitting off hardpan even in the middle of the fairway. The greens are always nice.

Had a great day golfing. We just happened to pick the coldest and windiest day. First time to play the course. Bring your straight shot or a lot of balls. Lots of hills and hidden shots. The greens were in good shape as well as the fairway even though AZ is going through a drought right now. The restaurant is temporarily closed for now until they find someone to run it again. Go and enjoy.

The course was in excellent condition with the exception of two greens. They were a bit dry and patchy, but they did not affect our round of golf. The staff is very friendly and the beverage cart lady is such a nice person! Love golfing in Kino Springs!!!

We booked a round on GolfNow and ended up meeting up with a friend who was just checking in. The course has recently undergone some maintenance, and golf carts were 90 degree only. We had good pace of play but our cart died at the tee box on hole 11 and our friend had to drive his cart in for assistance as there is no cell service and no marshall. We waited about 45 minutes before we could continue our game. No compensation was offered.
