A Gem in the Desert

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.

Kino Springs is well worth playing...!!!

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.

Beautiful area and a nice 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..

A good challenge in southern Arizona

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.

Best Condition Ever

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.

Fun course!

Fairways were great, greens were fast, but just a little thin. Ball rolled true.

I have played this course a number of times over the years and it has always been a fun day!

Kino Springs

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.

disappointed

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

Down Mexico way

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.

nice day for a great course

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.
