Relaxing round!

We had a wonderful round. The greens were exceptional, the staff was accommodating and the overall the day was relaxing as we enjoyed each hole meandering through the course and gorgeous trees. It made for a completely relaxing day!

Rancho/Anza Nines Challenge

These two nine hole layouts are great. However the course seemed very wet and slow, possibly due to the monsoon rains. There was little roll out off the tee and mud on the ball. Fairways also showed some "brown out" areas which may be a result of fungus. Certain tee boxes needed attention and with aeration coming, maybe improvement will be seen. Greens were very soft and holding. Greens looked faster than they actually were which created some frustration on longer putts. Overall playing Tubac Golf Resort is a great experience especially the Rancho nine. And hats off to Tin Cup hole #4 on Rancho!

Gotta play here

Great course, great people, thoroughly enjoyed the course. Tee boxes were a little rough, other than that course in excellent shape, greens were in excellent condition. Would highly recommend playing here.

Tubac in July

Course was disappointing, tee boxes and fairways were spotty at best. Sand traps had not been raked and were crusty.
However, greens were in good condition.
If this was the first time I had played there I would hesitate to return.

A disappointment for a usually great course

Have played this course probably 30-40 times over the past ten years, and have considered it one of my favorites. A big disappointment this time. Many bare spots in the fairways, some tee boxes not mowed and some of the greens with bare spots. It's been about a year since I last played, and could not believe the difference. True we are in the summer Monsoon season, but so are the other local courses, and they are not in this bad of shape. I hope it turns around because the course is usually beautiful.

Fabulous Day!

I took my 2 daughters from Calgary to play the “Tin Cup” course today. The course was great, the staff was very accommodating and the weather was perfect. Stables Lounge was a wonderful “19th hole” venue! Lots of character. Just a great day.

Tubac, Az

My friend Wally and I had a great time this am, first time Wally has played the course and thought it was an easy course until we played that is!! Recent monsoon activity has the staff scrambling , lots of flooded areas and tree branches down! But they are doing a great job. We met our wives for lunch and the girls shopped while We played. Win, Win! Did I say the price was super low thanks to Golf Now and Tubac. Thanks everyone for our fun round of great gold, Pat and Wally

Too hot for golf today!

Temp today is 108, so okay that course was dry and hard. All things considered for southern AZ, it's normal. No drinkable water on course, but staff provides it before, mid-point, and after. Course reminds me alot like Eastern courses. Almost every hole is just straight. A little boring vs most courses out here. But still enjoyed the course and had a nice day.

Great course

Tubac has 3 nines, and all are beautiful and moderately challenging without being punitive. The fairways were a tad dry, but that's to be expected in Arizona in the summer. Added attractions are the occasional horse or cow grazing in the rough. This is the course where they filmed "Tin Cup." It's one of my favorites.
