Where’s my beer!!!

What a great course. Very confusing at first to find your way around. Beautiful views. It was winter so the grass was in pretty good shape considering. Cart path only because of over seed but still great. Saw the cart girl once in 18 holes. Greens were fast and unforgiving. Love to play it again.

Played with my son. Booked through GolfNow. Staff was great. Playing conditions perfect. Overseeding best in town. The on course marshalls kept everything moving. Finished in four hours.

Mountain course

A little pricey but well worth it warm up area and practice green were in great shape as was the course. Staff and starter did a great job getting everyone out on time. 4.5 hour not bad as it was cart path only. Greens we’re nearly perfect a running probably close to 12

A favorite course

One of my favorite courses. Pretty much every hole is interesting, and a few are spectacular. Greens are normally fast and difficult to read (at least for me). You need to stay below the hole on most holes. Enjoy the round and scenery.

Lovely course in a lovely location

I played this course during a work conference and was very impressed. It is nestled at the foot of the mountains in Tucson, AZ and is simply beautiful! The grass was a perfect lush green, the greens themselves were fast and challenging. Would definitely play the course over and over again.

Ventana Canyon Mtn. Course

Beautiful location. Course had just opened after over seeding. Fairways grass was
long, but playable. Fairways were very wide and allowed room for wayward shots. Greens were excellent and consistent. Would love to play here more often, but my budget won’t allow it. One complaint I had was most of the holes especially the Par 4s were just straight away. Not much different one from the other.

First Time

This was my first venture onto Ventana Golf's Canyon Course. The course was challenging but very fair and was in excellent condition. I will be returning to this course for future rounds and will also try the Mountain Course.

9/8/19 Course conditions....near perfect!!

Played the Mountain Course 9/8/19 in the Sunday a.m. shotgun start. Rained for the first 20 minutes but the course drained quickly. Fairways and greens were absolutely spectacular. Green speeds were a little crazy with some very tough pin placements near the edges, but still very fun to putt. A great Sunday round.
