Fun layout

Very nice resort course. Fairways are wide and well maintained. Greens are a bit challenging They are fast with subtle contouring and in excellent shape. Be sure to look at putts from behind the pin or it is easy to end up 5 feet past. Staff was very friendly

Disappointed expectation

Always wanted to play the course where “Tin Cup” was filmed. I expected a much better maintained course. Although the greens were in good shape, the fairways were in need of mowing and in bad shape with inconsistent grasses on every hole. It was very hard to figure out where to tee off on every hole as there were no tee markers set on any hole. We had to get out of the carts and look for the cement yardage markers on every hole. This made for a frustrating day as I have never played a course without tee markers. Truly this course reminded me of a cow pasture with bent greens that have a lot of Po Anna on them. Course has been mostly neglected and needs a lot of work to get back in playing shape. Disappointing experience. Sorry Tubac, hope you can recover.

A well layed out course that's a treat to play.

This has been a favorite course for many years gaining fame when it was used in the filming of Tin Cup. When we first played, it was 18 holes. Since then it's become 27 holes that are rotated daily. The views are incomparable with occasional wildlife sightings. Compared to other resort courses, it's a great value for the money.
The course is kept in good shape and we've never had a problem with pace of play.
There is an excellent restaurant on site along with a snack shop next to the pro shop. Overnight accommodations are available.

Excellent Course

Tubac golf course is a excellent course especially during the prime season .. The layout is very good and in most cases the course is in great shape. Very fair course with 4 tees for all ages and player capabilities. My biggest concern with the course is the price. During the prime season in my opinion it prices out the average golfer to play there regular.. Yes it is part of the resort so I am sure during the prime season they are catering to a whole different group of golfers. The facility is very pleasant and the staff always very friendly and helpful.. We have golfed here many times but we pick and choose the best times to do it...

Southern AZ Gem

Play here a couple times a year when friends are visiting during winter. Interesting layout with much variety in holes. Condition is OK, but fairways and tee boxes have bare spots. Bunkers are consistent. Greens are fast and accept an iron shot well.

Great golf for the money

Tubac is a quaint, well-kept course in a beautiful desert setting. Beautiful desert and mountain views are abundant, making it a very enjoyable golfing experience. The fairways allow the ball to sit up nicely, and the greens are fast and true. And, there is a good chance you will see horses, deer, coyotes or other wildlife to enjoy on your round. And where else can you take the Tin Cup challenge? An overall fun but challenging round of golf.

Course was in excellent condition. Greens were well maintained and cut low making them very fast. Would recommend the course to others.

Disappointed

Rental clubs were very ‘used’, 1-2 needed new grips the rest were pretty beat up and a couple hadn’t been wiped down.
Amenities with cart included 1 cup of water, no coolers on carts, 3 tees, no balls. That may or may not be a typical experience but in my limited experience did not meet my expectations for a highly touted course.
Drove from Tucson to Tubac, AZ drive wasn’t bad but regretted losing the day for the experience wish we had stayed more local.

Historic place.

Always have a great round here, remembering the scenes from Tin Cup and the pro golfers included in the cast. I always point out to people where some of the scenes were filmed and they are usually interested in the details. Most end up reseeing the movie to reenact the fun of Tin Cup. Also interesting is the cattle ranch history dating back to the 1800's depicted on the walls of the on site bar
