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

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

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.
