Course is ok. The GPS. originally said we were 11.3 miles from our location.

However it was closer to 30 miles not sure who’s error but some what disappointing.

Our plan wasn’t to travel that far. We wanted to travel as little as possible.

Tucson open held back here in the 70’s

Open fairways. Medium speed greens.

Bunkers hard dirt.

Plenty of trees for shade and staying out of sun. Good drive out of city

Fair price to play to gem around 20- 30

Checked in a little early and they already had my name down with the starter and a golf cart was ready. We tee'd off a little early and had a great day. This was my first time at the 49'ers and I couldn't have been more impressed. This is a beautiful course that is very well maintained. I'll definitely be back.

Greens were very fast, but rolled true for the most part. Rough was cut down and extremely thin, which made a challenge to get under a ball. Fairways were in great shape, could even putt from well off the green without many issues. Sand traps were in good shape and played fairly.

The scorecard reads from the back tees it is 6669 but it plays much shorter due to the hard fairways and greens. The ball really rolls out on the fairways and greens. Some of the holes have a significant downhill portion which also shortens the course. Played on an extremely windy day and the wind also played a factor in many of the holes.

Busy tee times thru 1300, but Kenny as usual had things moving and there was very little waiting, even on the par 3s. 4:30 total time, including stop at the turn for hot dogs to go. BTW, if you want a treat the Grill serves Big City, all beef hot dogs and they are to die for!!!!!!!!!!

My first time playing this course. It’s not a memorable layout, but a fun round. The pace of play was too slow as there were too many twosomes backed up behind a four group or two. The course is clearly cutting back on watering-a good idea In a drought stricken desert. It does make for considerable hard pan lies away from the fairway, though. I also thought the greens were too dry and fast. The sand traps were inconsistent- some too thin, others full. Fairways, for Arizona, were very good and consistent.

But, the rate was excellent from Golfnow and the staff was extraordinarily friendly and helpful. In my experience, this was the most welcome I have EVER felt at any course, anywhere. I would gladly play here again-but only with a good rate from Golfnow.
