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 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 !)

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.

Very nice layout, challenging but not too difficult. Condition of course was O.K. but not great. Course lacks the quantity of water needed to improve condition.

Enjoyable day.

Was staying in nearby Patagonia, AZ and was certain I would have to drive to Green Valley to find a decent golf course. Was pleasantly surprised to find Kino Springs a short drive away. Was greeted by Keith and given a cart and shown the practice facilities. Was teamed with another singleton player of similar skills and we had a great afternoon. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in great shape. I found the greens speed and slope to be challenging. Price with a cart at $33 was very good. Even found a few souvenir deals in the pro shop. Just need to get the grill back open.

The course continues to be in very good shape with tee boxes and fairways being very green and playable. The greens are firm and rolling well and quick. I would say that golfers should do better in repairing ball marks on the greens. Otherwise I highly recommend playing Kino Springs before the summer arrives and drys out the course.

We play here a couple times each year and enjoy it very much. The staff is always very friendly and the course is always in pretty good condition.. The greens were just rolled when we played and not quite as nice as usual.. Indentations from this process made your ball jump at times. Overall the course was in good condition other then the sand traps need work.. Most were pretty hard and need a rake run through them at least every other day.. Would definitely recommend playing here though.. Expect some wind here for sure..

Kino Springs is a challenge, especially with the the wind we had. First 5 holes are pretty plan and ordinary and then the fun begins. Lots of elevation changes, tough doglegs and small greens.

Course was in good shape.Fairway grass was think and greens were very firm and rolled true. Would not hold a wedge shot so lots of bump and runs.

Local course knowledge is a big advantage. The layout is deceiving for a first time player.

Looking forward to playing Kino again soon.

Having played Kino Springs for several years, yesterday's course condition was the best I've seen. Tee boxes and fairways were in excellent condition and well maintained. The greens were in good condition, fast and firm, making holding incoming shots proving to be a challenge. The only issue noted was slow play by groups ahead of our group, which was frustrating at times. In any case KIno is well worth playing and enjoying in its current condition.
