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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Played the Blacks (6872/72.1/143) as a single in 3.5 H. Played through 2 groups and was rarely held up on a sunny, breezy day around 90. Extremely tough driving course, many long forced carries and lost ball native scape down both sides of almost every fairway. The course overall was in much better condition than when I played here last summer. Having previously seen the layout definitely assists here as some holes turn and landing areas are obscured. The tees were level, lush and very well maintained. The fairways were mostly lush and good to play from. Occasionally thin with a few poor areas. The rough was lush and thick. Just tall & thick enough to be a 1/2 club penalty and grab your club if you were not precise. The traps were a mixed bag. Most were decent, but a few were hard packed where they should not be around greens. The large greens were good. Medium fast, firm with few ball marks and held well struck irons well. I played the front with almost no wind in 1H, 15M where I was on or around every green in regulation. I played the back in a 2-3 club wind in 2H, 15M where I had to adjust 3 holes for ESC and spent plenty of time looking in the cactus. The layout has five par 5's and five par 3's and all the holes offer an excellent variety. None make you feel like you just played that hole a few holes back like on some courses. The par 3's are demanding from the tips. 188,178,197, 221,198, all with a significant forced carry. Unusual for a course to average 195 on the five par 3's from the tips. The par 5's are 530,572,528,589 & 486... 3 of them are excellent risk/reward holes where longer hitters can have a go at the green in 2 if they hit a good drive in play. The other 2 are position par 5's where you need to advance the ball prudently. One short par 4 @ 332, one long one @ 465. However, this course does not beat you up on the par 4's as they are mostly in the 400 yard range from the tips. Playing in the desert, this course plays a little shorter than the 6872 yards listed. The cart gal was around multiple times and the customer service was excellent from everyone. You kind of get a private club feel here, definitely recommended... just come in knowing that anything more than a little short, left or right is going to be a likely lost ball in the cactus.

while playing a late afternoon round our electric golf cart lost its charge on the 13th hole. we (playing as twosome) called the pro shop for assistance, told no one available to help us, told staff person again we were stranded and needed help. staff person said he would call us back and send help. he never called back and we both in our seventies walked back to the club house. the golf shop was locked only person onsite was a young boy putting golf carts away. if at all possible do not play this course. recommend the views golf club a short distance away.

To be kind, the ownership/management changes have really challenged the staff here to keep the course working in good condition. The practice area is not one of our favorites. What you practice on has no correlation to the course.

Hole 2 is an awkward Par 5 and can certainly cause a bunch of early pace of play issues.

The cookies are good.
