What a value. Great condition. Even after aeration, Greens rolled true. Many Tucson desert courses could take a cue or two from The Views. 3:48 playing time even while busy. Couldn’t care about the score.

Played Monday with my Father in law who was in town visiting from Texas, Really enjoyed our round. You can tell that the course staff is working diligently on the course during these drought conditions. Fairways are dry amd greens are hard, I really like the layout and the staff is always friendly. Will play again soon, and can’t wait till the fall I’m sure it will be amazing with all the work and attention they are giving it this summer. Thank you!

Recently relocated to Oro Valley, this is the 8th course I played here since the move. It’s in my top 3. It’s forgiving but a little challenging. Beautiful views. They have recently aerated but still a fun track. Thinking about playing it agin this weekend.

Thank you very much for your review. We welcome all feedback, and your comments have been forwarded to our management team. This is the time of year that we begin to get the course ready for summer, and unfortunately, that does mean it is time to aerate, thus making conditions a little less desirable than usual. And for that we apologize. However, we are so pleased to read that the pace of play and staff friendliness met/exceeded your expectations. And that you do recommend our course. We do hope you give us another try. Looking forward to seeing you on the greens!

The views are quite beautiful. It would be a wonderful course except the greens were incredibly slow. The greens were what you would expect from a course that charges $25 instead of $79.

Thank you for your honest feedback. We value your opinion. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences you may have encountered on your most recent visit to our golf course.

Unfortunately at the time of your visit, we experienced equipment failure with some of our golf course maintenance equipment which affected parts of the golf course. The staff did the best they could during this time to ensure the course stayed in adequate condition that would not further hinder our guests’ play.

I would be happy to address any other concerns with you personally if you would like to email me. – Michael Kropf, Golf Course Superintendent, mkropf@suncityorovalley.com

All my friends told me I had to play The Views. I was so pumped to be able to play and it ended up being a shot gun start. I played with three nice gentlemen and started on hole 10. I was very disappointed in the course conditions of the fairways and greens on the back 9. Making the turn, the conditions improved but still not worth the cost of the 18 holes. I probably will never play it again. Even my cart partner agreed and said he would not bring his son in law to play.
