Wow, first time playing and I loved it
I love the 3 nines concept. I had a nine out in the trees and then a very open (newer?) concept nine. Greens and fairways were in excellent condition. The water ponds gave just enough challenge that it made you think about club selection to try and navigate them.
A Very Enjoyable Day
My brother and I played the Rancho and Anza courses and thoroughly enjoyed the day. The staff and facility were terrific, practice facilities very nice, the pace of play very reasonable, and the course was in excellent condition. I would highly recommend it to anyone regardless of your level of play. I particularly liked the Blue/White option of play, which was something I had not seen anywhere else and gave me a few extra yards. Very enjoyable day and we will certainly return.
Beautiful day in Tubac
What a lovely course! Staff was great and the course is in great shape. Can’t wait to come back.
Played the Otero and Rancho nines. Course was in good condition. Golf Now rate was $10 less than the course online rate. Will definitely play again.
This course has great features.
We have played this course several times and is always a challenge but we have such a great time. The course is beautiful and well kept!! Some times we even see beautiful horses just grazing along side the greens.
I gave this overall a 2 star rating. The golf course I would rate a 3 or 4 star course but the staff a 1.
First, staff messed up our tee time and didn't have us on the tee sheet (we just made the tee time 2 days before with the same golf shop employee). Then he was VERY arrogant while checking us in. Made us feel like pests for wanting a tee time at their golf courses. Proceeded to tell us how busy they were and didn't know if we could get out (first tee time starts at 8am there). We finally get an 8:30am tee time only to be rushed to the tee box at 8am by ourselves as a 2 some. They were so busy now all of a sudden no one is here and we can play as a 2 some? Interesting. The shop didn't let us know we needed to purchase range balls, no insight on the golf course what so ever, and forgot to mention the 1 time we would see the beverage cart that they were cash only. I have played many different courses and have never see a golf course so unorganized from the tee sheet to everyone scrambling around telling you different information.
We did get to play the Rancho course were the famous Tin Cup hole was shot. What a let down! They really hype up Tin Cup and that must be what is saving this golf course.
There are much better golf courses in the Tucson area and I would recommend trying another option!
Great variation to usual Arizona golf
Real trees along the course make for a very nice change to the normal rounds played. Great to try the “tin cup” shot also.
I'm a winter visitor. I was really looking forward to my first ever round at Tubac. I drove down from Tucson. Even with a nice discount from Golf Now I feel the course was overpriced given the condition it was in, compared to other courses in the general area. The grass on the tees and fairways was really long, more like rough (not cut for several days), well normal rough, here the rough is still dormant. Many of the fairways were inconsistent ranging from clumps of grass to individual blades to bare spots from unrepaired divots, again more visible due to not having been cut lately. Maybe they also got a mixed batch of overseeding grass seed. Additionally, the greens didn't roll very true. Green speed was average. Another problem is that some of the hole plugs have been put in lower than the surface of the green, making them obstacles if they are in your line. The cart guys have to get you your ice water and there are very few refilling places on the course. There is also no beverage cart or Marshalls. There are some good holes, multiple tee boxes and nice views, but I was expecting a better conditioned, better serviced course. I'll be happy to play Randolph later this week. It's closer, less expensive, better serviced and in better shape than Tubac. I won't be returning.
Well worth the drive...a bit “rugged” but fun
My wife and I spent five days in Tucson. Friends told us about the shops and artists in Tubac, which was about 60 miles form our hotel. We decided to take a “day trip” to visit the shops and play a round of golf. The course is located in a very nice resort and housing development in a rather remote part of Arizona. We had a terrific time playing this course. It has 3 9 hole courses. The check-in was efficient and friendly. We went off as a 2-some and since the groups ahead of us were a bit slow, pace of play lagged a bit. The course was is pretty good shape. It is a fair and fun lay-out. Sign-age on the course could have been better. And, we didn’t notice any water (drinking) on the course nor was there a refreshment cart making the rounds. Overall we had a great day. Worth the trip to play this course.
Will be back
Played with wife and friends via the Stay and Play offering. We all really enjoyed the course, interesting holes. tremendous surroundings, and for some reason we all mentioned how cool the trees were in placement and just as scenery itself. Tee boxes were a bit neglected, fairways excellent, rough well kept and perfect for my game. Greens putted a bit differently from what I was used to and more than a few putts were missed due to a bumpy ride to the hole. Would give the course 5 stars across the board if not for the bumpy greens and piles of grass clippings in some of the fairways. Exceptionally friendly staff always a big plus in my book. Will return
Great course friendly staff. The pace of play was great 4 hrs. 10 min. Round . The sand traps were the best I have played in a long time. Only problem was the wind. Other than that we had a great time.
Good course...good condition except for a couple of greens...good pace of play and pleasant playing partners. Like a lot of courses in this area it is over-priced. Just because the word "Resort" is in the name doesn't mean the greens fee has to be in the $100.00 range.
Greens were not as good as they were when I played in the past,
Wide fairways, nice size greens, playable bunkers
Fun course but play was somewhat slow so enjoy the weather and relax.
The course was in fairly good shape.
The course is flat and wide open and the greens were in good shape. There are a few holes with water that come into play which is rare in Arizona on the courses that I have golfed. I would personally not pay full price for the course.
Enjoyed my round very much. I was a single & enjoyed the company of the company of the other 3 golfers. Surprised to find cow patties on the course.
Tubac courses Anza and Otero
Loved the courses! The challenge was in my first time playing Blues as my partner preferred them.
The only downside was the excessive amount of duck droppings that were on a number of the holes with water. The droppings were in my cleats, on my club face, and made navigating to the greens circuitous. These ducks MUST go!
