Loews Ventana

The greens were so perfect they looked unreal, which doesn’t always react well to amateurs. Great course with gorgeous layouts and greens.”

Awesome anniversary present

My husb has played this course in the past, but it was my first time (i just rode along). He has been wanting to play again so i surprised him as part of his "spoiling" day. Since most places are closed we decided to each take a day and spoil each other for our anniversary. This course was AMAZING!! The views of the mountains and city were breathtaking!
We had a wonderful day together, which led to a memorable night

Great course.... except....

Great course, great layout! Condition is immaculate other then the Inconsistent greens. Greens were in great shape but in the front 9 6 out of 9 were really slow. The back were all fast which was great. All in all I’ll be back again!

Another Great Day On the Canyon Course At Ventana Canyon

If we would have been able to make any putts during our round our Review would be perfect. The course is in great condition, as always. The fairways are like carpet and unlike many other Tucson area courses, Ventana has sand in the bunkers. Outstanding golf course, and very well run!

interesting

greens on course much faster than practice green. dormant areas around green overwatered and can be muddy or bare. greens very slick. fairways and traps in good condition other than that greens very firm and require shot to be on correct side to get good look for putts to hole.
should have a full driving range(only 225 yd max)

Canyon Course

Lovely setting with spectacular Mountain views. Longggg cart rides from green to tee box. Come early because the first tee is a long cart ride from the range and pro shop. Save some energy because 18 is a challenging hole with a well defended green..

Ventana Mountatin review

Course is in great condition and the views are very good. Tees, fairways and greens are all great. A strange layout because two 18 holes courses are shared by a private club and a Loews resort about 1/2 mile away.. It is 1/2 mile cart ride from check in to the range and 1st tee for the Mountain course. The pace of play was terrible on the first nine, taking 2.5 hours. A group ahead dropped out, presumably because of slow play, and we still waited behind the group ahead of them!

Lovely

Only a woman would describe a round of golf as lovely, right? :) My husband and I were paired up with a local gentleman and his son-in-law on the Canyon course. One beautiful golf hole after another. It was a gorgeous sunny day in January. I must add:
my husband eagled a short par 4 on the back!!!
Will definitely go back to check out the mountain course.
