The best place to play, in Oro Valley, for the money

Courses are in great Troon managed shape. Price was great. Former Country Club courses play great. Not crowded. Played in 3 hours. Great.

Great day, terrific courses

Played both courses and love them both. We’ve been coming here from Colorado for years and love being here from time to time. I hope the local politics doesn’t affect our returning here in the future.

Nice Day Playing The Helmet

The pace of play was good for a holiday weekend. The course is in relatively good shape, but the greens were very furry and slow, and there is not enough sand in the bunkers. Given the time of year, all of that can be forgiven, because the La Canada course is so much fun...

Great course

Overall a great course, well maintained and fun. Friendly staff greeting you at bag drop, pyramids of range balls to loosen up, practice greens played exactly as the course greens. Played La Canada today and it had plenty of elevations changes and strategically placed bunkers. Will play again.

Pleasantly surprised

I have played this course in previous summers, but this was the first time this year, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it is being maintained. The greens were good and the fairways and tee boxes were decent, especially when considering the hot Tucson weather and the toll it takes on golf courses. The bunkers have also been improved. Kudos to the maintenance staff. I will not hesitate to play it again.

Canada Course Horrible Condition

I've played the Canada Course for years. Before Troon was hired it was typically in poor condition, but last couple of years Troon has improved it. However, played it yesterday for 1st time in months and greatly disappointed. Greens terrible, some had minimal grass, bumpy, every one putted differently and it wasn't die to aeration. Fairways spotty and pace of play had us wait on every shot. Backed up ever more on back 9. (Teed off about 10:00am.) Ended up quitting after 17 holes. Would not play this course again.

Dog Leg Right !

Over all the course was in great shape. The fairways and also the greens were well groomed. The greens were soft enough too get the ball to stick as well as get back spin on the ball. The only complaint which is a minor one was there was no starter outside to show or tell us which course was which and that we could tee-off, seeing this was are first time at this Golf Course. If a golfer with a slice will Love this course or some like myself who can bring that element into my game once in awhile makes it fun. It's a course I would definitely play again and love too try and play the other course as well, wondering if that course is Dog Leg Left !

Beautiful

This course is beautiful and fun. Elevated greens are fun to play but the greens were SO slow from them recently being maintained. Pace of play was super slow too but there’s lots of stuff to look at along the way.
