Golf Club at Vistoso
Editor's Note: Course closed for business in 2018.
The Golf Club at Vistoso in Tucson has never seemed willing to cower in the presence of its resort-course cousins. Paloma and Ventana are golf resorts, but the Golf Club at Vistoso is just a golf course, and a fine one at that. This Tom Weiskopf-designed layout was a "readers write-in" Golf Magazine's "Top 100 you can play," and is a "sneaky" favorite among locals and visitors alike. The layout is nowhere near as penal as Ventana or La Paloma, and if you can find better greens in the greater Tucson area, let us know. Take note of the 166-yard, par-3 third hole -- on a clear day (there are only 323 of them) you will have an amazing view of the north side of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

Got to golf
Course in the good shape ,starter was very helpful , friendly . Good value for the money
Course is in great shape, I will play there regularly
Great course in great shape! Can’t beat it for the price. Nice views as well!
First time playing this course. Course layout is outstanding but the conditions of the course is just average to good. The roughs are green and lush but the greens look terrible and are medium speed at best. Make sure one selects the proper tees as there are many forced carries and the par 3 ‘s all are long. The only other negative was the pace of play. Marshall was present and trying to get pace up but when one has poor players playing from the wrong tees not much he can do. Would recommend course if in area but not a destination course
Stay out of the bunkers
Great course. The only downside was the bunkers. I'm used to sand which was not presenf. Maybe playing out of the desert. is part of the charm but I prefer sand rather than hard pack
Would play again
Course in good condition. Had some really nice golf holes. Would definitely play again.
This is a really great course. I can’t believe it was as cheap as it was. Conditions were awesome! Fast greens and beverage cart was pretty frequent. I would definitely go again, soon.
Course is in great shape. It is not for those who worry about loosing balls. It is difficult, but fair. However, Pace of Play they day we played was terrible. 5+ hour round. No marshal to keep play moving. Waiting 15 min on some tee boxes. That is unacceptable.
This coarse has a great layout
Great track. Great condition. The only knock is the bunkers need more sand and the driving range closed at noon for maintenance. Would have played another 9 if pro shop and restaurant had not closed early.
Challenging- every shot counts
The carry from the tee seemed to keep getting longer as the day wore on. Lost three balls. Some fairways require a carry over the desert on both the tee shot and the second shot. Beautiful course. Bunkers are course, hard sand. Bring a few extra balls.
Great desert setting.
Lots of desert, gotta be strong off the tee and the traps are hard and impossible to get a club under the ball. Greens very fast and in great shape
One of my favorite Tucson area courses. Challenging track, especially the back 9. Fairways in very good shape. Greens as well, except 1st 4-5 holes have poanna issues. Staff very accommodating. Very good practice facilities. No on-course refreshment cart.
Great course conditioned
Played as a single in perfect weather. Front nine in less than 2 hrs., but very slow on back nine with slow,slow foursome in front of me. Waited on every shot ( I was a single, so that was part of it). Fairways were in close to perfect condition, and greens were true, pretty fast and in very good shape except for many, many un fixed ball marks. Why don't people just fix them??? There are forced carries and a few holes seem a bit "tricked up" when there doesn't seem to be a reason, but overall this course is challenging, fair and fun to play.
Long for Ladies
Had to have perfect drive to have a chance on many holes. Sand traps brutally hard and impossible to get under the ball. Greens Fast, I say Fast. Great course will play it again. There were funky purple temporary tees forward of the forward tees. Build ‘em post’em or take ‘em out.
The sand traps are terrible and not manicured! Terrible condition for a $79 green fee!
Good course layout and challenge but need more stand in traps and more ball washers.
Grass clippings in all fairways.
Long grass in rough.
Poa in all greens.
Sand traps not groomed.
love this golf course,Great price today
e-mail special $20.18 to play and the course had a lot of players/groups today bunkers have been improved and where nice,Again still need to have barber poles on each hole to show 150/100 and maybe 200 yards to greens,they had a couple days of frost several days ago and it is showing in the greens very bumpy But they should come around(if no more frost) in a week or so,but it is still worth playing this course,the staff is great and the outside service guys are wonderful
Wait for Monsoon Rain
Course was in terrible shape. Every fairway was brown and burnt out. We played this course a little over 3 weeks ago and it was great. WHAT HAPPENED? We asked several employees and they said a main water pump burned out and no watering of fairways for nearly a week. They also said corporate cut the water budget! We usually enjoy this course and play it many times during summer. Will not play again until the fairways are back in decent shape. With current conditions not even worth $24.
no one playing the great golf course
played vistoso today(saturday before memorial day) no one was out there was in the second group off today and was not crowed at all greens are in very good shape,yes there is some burnout in the fairways and i am sure that will be corrected with a punch or some thatching of the fairways,but over all course in very good shape and it always a pleasure to play pro shop staff is awesome and so is the outside services,only complaint beverage cart girl kinda disappears during the round only saw her twice once on the front and once on the back nine
