One of the most difficult target courses I've ever played. Hit from the silver tees for better scoring. Play the black tees if you want to lose a lot of golf balls. Can't wait to go back and punish myself.

First time playing at this resort. Played the Rattler/Roadrunner combination and everything was outstanding from tee to green. Every hole was a treat in itself and there were no weak holes. Helped that I played with some individuals who had played the course before. Very important to play from the right tees as there are many forced carries from the tee and into many of the greens. Throughly enjoyed the round and would consider it a must play when in the Tucson area.

Seems odd that you can get such a deal through GolfNow and can't get the deal through the course. Whatever, I'll use GolfNow and pay less than $50 for 18 holes in May when the Tucson weather isn't that bad. Was a breezy day but the course was in nice shape. I would highly recommend playing the course.

This course is very unforgiving on the front nine. Lost more than my share of balls. The course was in great shape and fun to play. Greens were in good shape and we're not as fast as they looked. The scenery is beautiful. We saw some javalina and some deer. It was very hot and not a lot of shade. They could use a few more water stations at more tee boxes. Would definitely play here again.

Shot-making is always required to keep the ball in play here. The design layout is always fun; you can't go to sleep here. The greens are being aerated and recovering nicely but putt a bit slow right now. These bent grass greens are normally fast. Weekdays after 10 AM the course starts to empty due to Arizona's high heat so the pace of play picks up.

The course was well maintained and a beautiful setting. The course is too difficult for average players, even from forward tees. There are too many forced carries, especially on second shots following a good tee ball.

You definitely need to hit the ball in the right place on this course. Course knowledge is very important here and I could do better the next time. Knowing distances is crucial, a lot of forced carries and uphill shots. Course was in decent shape, pace was excellent since we were about the only ones on the course. The cart people and the starter were very friendly and helpful. The guy behind the counter at check in seemed unhappy to have to wait on us. Had to ask him everything, he volunteered no information. The restaurant was excellent and had some of the best smoked brisket we have ever had!

Starpass is in excellent shape with superb fairways and well kept greens. It is always a pleasure to play there although it can be challenging. Once you’re out there, take the time to enjoy the scenery and the wildlife. Definitely recommend playing there.

Great track! You can change up the nines and play different combos. Plus if you change tees you will significantly change the course/forced carries. Must play in Tucson.
