"Not a walkable course"

The Greens on both courses at Omni are fantastic, the staff and practice facilities are fantastic, but the Catalina course is by far the preferred 18 here.

This is simply not a very walkable 18, with some awkward holes (15) not conducive to high handicap players. In addition, some of the forced carries in the middle holes are unrealistic given the low course rating and slope.

That said, if you want to sandbag your handicap for your next club tournament, this is the course for you.

We enjoyed a great round of golf. Played quickly, greens and fairways in great shape. We reached a twosome in front of us, must had been a member with his girlfriend hitting three balls each which was the only negative. Slowed us down otherwise we would had been done in under 4 hours.

I was very disappointed in the Omni Tucson Sonoran course. The layout of many holes is "uninspired" at best -- comparable to an average muni. Flat, no distinguishing features, no interest in the layout, course condition was poor-to-fair at best. Of the six courses I played in the greater Tucson area, this was the worst value by far. I will not play it again.

Summer golf in Tucson is like a bar date, hot and cheap and you better be sure to stay hydrated.

Tucson National is top of the line golf and while the Catalina course is my all time favorite, the Sonoran Course is definitely in my top 10. Course conditions are always outstanding and while the greens were a bit slow after aeration, the course still didn't disappoint. If you have a chance and have never played it, do so and you will not be sorry.

VERY NICE GOLF COURSE. I BOOKED ON GOLFNOW.COM AS A SINGLE BUT GOT PAIRED UP WITH COUPLE GUYS. THE ONLY THING THAT I DIDN'T LIKE THAT MY TEE TIME WAS CHANGED WHILE I WAS ON THE DRIVING RANGE. I RUSHED TO THE FIRST TEE ASSUMING THAT I WAS GOING TO PLAY AT 7 AM BUT GOT BUMPED UP TO LATER TEE TIME. I DON'T BELIEVE THIS EVER HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE.
