Great value

Have enjoyed this course for 7years,. In my opinion, it is secret and a gem of a Red Lawrence course. It would be super if the grill would reopen. Ghosts of John Wayne, the Granger's, Lee Marvin, and other Hollywood actors would rise. Be fair to yourself and enjoy the landscape and nature that surrounds you, when you play. It is not a fancy place, bot real, . thanks

quirky but lovable

Have made this course a must-play whenever in the Tucson-Green Valley area.. Overall course conditions in Jan. Feb are average. Routing is intriguing: 9 of the holes are pretty straightforward , but the inner 9 are an experience you have to have to believe. Great staff, too. Come on down and enjoy a track out of the ordinary!

Don't let this course go away

This a great track - one of my favorites in SW Arizona. Considering they shut the course down during the summer - it is in good shape. There are a few greens that need work but I'd go back.

better not miss this one!

Just an all-out fun course to play. The 9 holes after Dante's quote are a bit quirky but worth the trip! themselves!
Great staff, good on course service. Riding can be rough at times; fairways a bit thin, too. Take a chance: you'll have a lot to talk about afterwards ....

Tough course, but still fun

Blind shots and narrow fairways, but still a fun course to play. Weather delayed everyone’s tee time, but the starter spaced everyone out well and we only had to wait a few times. Will definitely be playing again

Best Bargain Between Tucson And The Border

Played twice in the last 2 weeks. The layout keeps your interest: no two holes look alike. Staff is very welcoming. Fairways in great shape; greens are a little patchwork, but run true. Lots of wildlife (javelinas and deer). Well worth the drive from Green Valley.

Great track, fun to play.

This is a good ole country golf course.
Not too fancy but everything you need,-good fairways decent greens.
It has really interesting unique holes in a beautiful setting, the kind of course you want to play all day so you can get a second chance at the holes that kicked your butt.
The staff were friendly and helpful.
When I was checking in I asked where the carts were and one of the workers said "It's parked behind your car. ready for you".
That my friends is how it's done.

Unique, Exceptional Experience

Kino Springs GC is very good. I’ve never had a bad experience. Today I took my 5 year old son & his mom. Cart was old but roomy, and management didn’t ding me with “rider fees”. Friendly & helpful. Fairways were mint, and greens really good considering this course is literally in the middle of nowhere. That’s one of the things that makes it so special. You don’t have cell service much of the time, and the cart girl (cute!) was super-attentive (even remembered my boy’s name!). A really amazing round for anyone who wants total submersion in golf.

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.

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.
