Very short 18 hole executive course that took OVER FOUR HOURS to play. Pace of play is ridiculously slow. The gentleman running the pro shop was exceptionally grumpy. And if you read in other reviews that there is food at the course, that means hot dogs and chips only. Much better courses in the area for the same price.

This is a very fun short course. It's a par 3 and par 4 course where you should be able to drive some of the par 4 holes. With most of the holes reachable in 1, the pace of play is a lot faster then normal. I was behind a foursome and still played 18 holes in about 2 hours. This short course also gives you great feedback about your game. If you're not making par on this shorter course it will definitely help you figure out what you need to work on. So, whenever I'm short on time I'll be playing this shorter course.

A quaint par 3 that is currently under some minor construction. 3 holes are affected, but only by shortening the holes to around 100 yds to about 130 yds. Great course for iron work, with a few holes needing a fairway wood to reach the green, from the tee box. 2 holes actually need a driver for all but the longest hitters.

i played 9 holes for $12 and it was fun. The clubhouse is run down and it looks like the owner isn't planning on remodeling because the upper clubhouse is all boarded up, but would have liked to see it when it was new. Fairways and greens are in good shape, however, there is construction on the course and lots of earth movers and detours on back 9. I would hate to see it redeveloped with new homes as it is an oasis in the middle of town. They actually have 18 holes, not just 9 that you play twice. Mostly short par 3's, but what do you want for $12?

I've played here many times and always enjoy the experience out on the course. It is an executive course so it lends itself to a quick 9 or 18. Great for practicing your game in an on-course setting. Prices are reasonable. The best rates are late afternoon. Rainy the day were there, but that is highly unusual for Tucson. Fairways were well groomed. Greens were a tad uneven. The staff is working hard to keep the course in shape. They recently replaced their golf cart fleet. The club house is awful. (the staff is great, the building is awful) Go there for the golf, not the club house experience.

This was probably a pretty good golf course at one time, but has fallen into total disrepair. Clubhouse is falling apart. It has virtually no food service, unless you want lousy hot dogs. The course itself needs a couple of years to regrow grass and replace disappearing cart paths. What a shame!

I played with some local fellows who knew the course well. They warned me of the problem areas on each hole. The fairways were in good shape, quite green. The greens were excellent, although slow by some standards. I would certainly play here again next winter. My only disappointment was the coffee shop/bar was closed at 4:30 when we finished.

This is a short par 61 course with narrow fairways and small greens. The clubhouse is sadly run down, but the staff was friendly and considerate, sending my twosome out early to get ahead of a foursome. The course condition was average. We finished 18 holes in three hours after soon catching up with another foursome. The short fairways and relaxed atmosphere at this course make it a great place to take beginner.
