Beautiful course. Near perfect greens and fairways. Only complaint is being reprimanded for slow play. Even threatened to be removed! Ranger must have been confused. We even had to wait for group in front. Good help is hard to find.

I chatted with a golfer up in Phoenix who told me when I’m down in Tucson I need to play the course. Great recommendation. Greens looked great as well as fairways. They run quick. Scenery is top notch as well. A course like this in Scottsdale would run $260 in season

A great experience. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The conditions excellent and the course what a Tom Fazio course should be. The day was everything that a day spent golfing to ought be.

Can't comment on the bar/restaurant amenities as we didn't have time to sample them. Maybe next time ... And the will be a next time!

I'm grateful for a beautiful, wonderful afternoon on the gorgeous green grass at Ventana Canyon. The couple I played with for 4.5 hours were quiet and quite excellent golfers. Played efficiently and accurately. Very interesting couple, really, which adds to the overall rewarding afternoon under the Tucson sun and blue skies. Perfection! Love this course.

Course was great, but no signage to find course. Finally arrived at course but couldn't find pro shop because it was behind the restaurant from the parking area, again with no signs to direct us. Food was good, although a bit pricey. We did get a great replay price on our second round.

The 2 courses at Ventana are both outstanding. Our recent experience was great. Paired with a few of the course rangers was a treat. Although the overall layout of the two courses and facilities are not the best, the experience is excellent.

Beautiful layout with changing elevations as you work your way up and down the canyon. Quite playable but all the challenge you could want if you choose the right tees for your game. Greens are fair but quick. Service is friendly but not as outgoing and helpful as typical at club of this quality. We finished our round and returned our cart but attendant told us we needed to carry our clubs up the stairs and around the clubhouse to our car as he couldn’t leave. No problem except he didn’t mention there were two clubhouses and the one we started at was a mile and a half down the road.
