Good day

The course was in great shape

No dead spots in fairways and the rough was also in good shape.

The greens were faster then the ones we normally play on and they rolled true so that was nice. All in all we had a good day at this course

Ventana Canyon

A very fun well maintained course. Fair, not tricked up. If you’re looking for a “desert course” this is not for you. Played the Canyon Course, getting around can be tricky. Great variety of holes. This course is at least $150.00 in season, so for $39.00 with balls and a cart, a great value.

Ventana Canyon (Mountain)

Rode the Greens (6537/71.4/139) in 5H mid day. Paired with Rob, Brian and Marge. It was in the high 90's, overcast and calm.

Tom Fazio design. Many holes have severe elevation changes. Common them is that you climb long distances in carts, then play down hill, then repeat the process. No holes were severely uphill. The layout is tight in spots with desert scape surrounding nearly every hole on both sides. If you are not straight this course will become penal real quickly.

The Bermuda tees were excellent with only a few divots here and there. Level/lush.

The Bermuda fairways had been vericutt and were maintained long, almost like light rough. Only part of the course not excellent or exceptional.

The Bermuda rough was mostly lush and maintained at a level that the ball often sat up. Usually good to play from.

The sand traps were the best I have played out of in a ling time. Fine, coarse sand that was excellent to play from and they were beautifully maintained.

The Bermuda greens were smooth and medium fast. Best Bermuda greens I have putted on since I played the sister Canyon course here last year.

Only negatives are that the basic carts do not have GPS and that this complex is REALLY spread out. You park close to a mile from where the practice facilities and first tees are. This course would be almost unwalkable because of this plus many tees you ride hundreds of yards from the last green to again play downhill. The customer service was exceptional from everyone. Cart gal out making the rounds. Plenty of water stations on the course. Excellent layout, one of the top dozen courses I have ever played, very enjoyable to play. Highly recommended.

One of the nicest courses I’ve ever played.

We have played 5 courses in the Tucson the last couple times we have visited, looking at potential areas/clubs to become members of. Not only if there one, but TWO amazing courses to play. The entire course is pristine, challenging, beautiful view on every hole, and at my favorite hotel chain for an extra star! No regrets, must play if you play any course in the area at a great value!
