Had visitors in from it of town and they loved it. One of my favorite courses in Arizona.
Had a great time
We booked this trip to Tubac knowing it was still under some covid restrictions. That being said we had a great time. The pro shop staff was friendly and kind. And very helpful. The course was in pretty good shape. The fairways were in good shape and well maintained. The greens could have used a little work and ball marks needed repair. The bunkers were not too bad but a little hard. The frustrating thing was the tee boxes were not marked. We had to count at every bow to find the white tees. I don’t understand why they didn’t have markers labeling the boxes. That’s not a covid restriction. It really that was our only complaint. The food at the cantina was amazing. I had the Torta and my husband had the burrito. Both were excellent and the fries were crispy and tasty. A couple of days at this resort has been a wonderful get away. Can’t wait to come back when everything is opened.
Perfect golf outing
The Anzo / Ranchero nines we played were in terrific shape, the greens were perfect and the course was in great shape. Will definitely play this track again !!
The course was in great shape for the time of year. Staff was awesome. Appreciated them letting spouses ride together during the whole social distancing thing. Common sense. Always a treat to golf here and stay.
Never pass this course up
We play this course quite a bit and enjoy our golf time there. It is challenging without wishing golf was not one of your favorite things to do. We have had the opportunity to meet people to play with from all over the Arizona area, the staff is great and friendly and always helpful.
Beautiful Golf Course
Wow! The golf course is fantastic to view and play. The cleanliness and beautiful green all around the course, flowers and maintained trees and plants make you feel like you very fortunate and blessed.
Excellent Resort & Golf Facility
The golf course was in excellent condition as we played the Anza/Rancho courses. Fairways were well maintained, yet a little slower in run out due to moisture. Greens were well maintained and putted well. Overall a great round of golf.
Bird Sanctuary NOT a Golf Course
I have always enjoyed playing Tubac in the winter.. Not anymore. Some of the faraway's have a fungus on them - not good. The greens were inconsistent . The biggest issue I have with Tubac is the number of ducks that now make this golf course home. There are holes that are covered with feces... I MEAN COVERED. You want to take a shower after playing each of these holes. Totally out of control. I'm not a germaphobe but it truly is a health hazard.
Great courses. Played the Avra and Rancho. Course is in prestige condition. Kudos to the maintenance crew. Would have never guessed hole #4 at Rancho was the tiny cup hole.... didn’t look like it. Either way, great time!
A true Gem
Course was in really good condition especially the greens. I always enjoy playing this course.
Very fun course to play
Excellent layout with numerous strategic options. Friendly helpful staff. Only down side was the amount of bird droppings on the Anza 9th green.
we always try to play a round at Tubac when we visit southern Arizona in the winter. The staff is more than friendly and very helpful. The course always seems to be in good shape and has plenty of challenges.
The best part is having lunch or dinner here too. Very good food.
Otero/Rancho day at Tubac Gold Resort
Today was day two for me at Tubac and I played the Otero 9 then the Rancho 9. The Rancho hole four is the one featured on Tin Cup and I did hit from the famous spot but unlike Costner I didn't land it on the green with a three wood, which seems to me impossible not as much because of the distance but more so because I can't imagine a ball flying that far that wouldn't just skip off the far side of the relatively small green. Anyway, I posted a good example of the mixed green fairway and tan rough. The picture makes the rough link a bit like dirt but it's not, it's all grass and very playable. The other picture is the Rancho 9 from the white tees. Your drive crosses the Santa Cruz river and there is about a 45 degree dogleg right with a big old cottonwood sitting right at the bend. I ended up slicing it around the bend but at the last moment my ball grazed that cottonwood but dropped right onto the fairway and left me a clear 9 iron approach. Lucky shot!
A challenging course that is also forgiving
Tubac is made up of three nine hole courses, Otero, Anza and Rancho. Today I played Otero and Anza. As a beginner I don't have a lot to compare to but this was the nicest course I've played. I've only played municipal courses before today. The fairways seemed relatively narrow but they were surrounded by larger, well maintained rough in most places making everything in bounds very playable. I tend to have a pretty good slice and didn't have too much trouble. There are several bunkers on the course and a couple holes that seemed to be mostly a line of bunkers leading up to the green so it's good to have some practice with your sand wedge. The water on the course is not a major feature but when it occurs it's pretty much always between you and the hole. There is one island green on Anza 9, which is a shortish par 3.. The greens were the hardest part of the course for me. I don't think any were flat. They aren't crazy but they all have tilts and folds that left me over or under shooting the hole for several three, and some four, puts but they were well maintained.
Better than ever could have imagined. What a wonderful course. I plan to play here everytime I am visiting Tucson. Great course layout; senic and fair challenge on every hole.
