Thye Need a Sarter and a Marshal

There are a number of un-watered/maintained areas on fairways and a few greens. I had a 9:30 tee time and was scheduled to play with a twosome. As I got to the first tee at 9:25, the lady member of the two some was teeing off and another twosome drove past them and went to the second tee. I was left to tee off alone and play as a single at a very slow pace. At the end of the round there were 6- to 8-carts and all the players noisily loitering at the 18th green. Why wasn't a marshal somewhere to get them take their noisy party to the parking lot or the cantina.

Great value for time of year

The course was in absolutely great shape. Very little summer burn at all. Greens were fast and smooth. Played 18 holes by myself in 3 hours. Well worth the drive.

great condition

Given that we are in the middle of the AZ hot desert summer and in a pandemic, the course was green and lush. Very impressed how well its maintained at this time. Pace of play was excellent, most likely because it was a tuesday morning. staff is good, no complaints, no starter that day but inside clerk was nice. beverage cart was available so that was a plus given it was a tuesday. I had a very early tee time so i paid high, but no complaints with that given the course condition.

I just bet McCord and Mickelson that your caddie could knock it on from here

Other than picking the literal hottest day of the year (and probably most humid) I had a blast playing here my first time. If you're lucky enough to play the Rancho side, look for signs along the way that have some famous scenes from "Tin Cup." Easily one of, if not the MOST beautiful course in Southern Az. With all the green and trees around, it really doesnt feel like Az at all.

Key tip: spend the couple bucks and pick up a yardage book in the pro shop (and an extra dozen). Aside from being the most beautiful, its possibly also the most unforgiving. The thick trees and bushes eat balls alive.

Tin Cup...A lot of fun!

I grew up on the courses in Houston where the US Open scenes of the movie Tin Cup were filmed, so I have played those before and they are some of the best courses I've ever stepped foot on. I recently learned of the Tubac Golf Resort course being the location for the scenes that were shot of the charity tournament and the qualifying rounds. This course is a lot of fun. The Tin Cup locations are marked with signs and you can even try to make the 240 yard 3 wood shot that Costner made in the bet right before he was fired by Don Johnson's character. I highly recommend this course if you're a Tin Cup fan and like a well-groomed course. The staff are very nice in the shop as well. I'm definitely coming back.
