This course never disappoints. The holes are challenging and there is a fair amount of risk/reward if you care to take it on. The hot weather has definitely effected the course, but for the most part, in good shape.

I enjoyed the round and will play there again.

Having just moved back to Tucson, I wanted a challenge for my first round back. I got that and much more! Course was in great shape, greens were slower than I anticipated but true roll and in excellent shape. Course plays great from the fairways but like most desert courses the greens don't hold many approach shots unless you can spin it consistently. That being said, I can't wait to play here again! I've always enjoyed this course and the staff was absolutely fantastic! Heartily recommend!!!

well, I played silver tee's which is good enough for even 8 handicappers. Nobody has business playing black or gold here. Why you can't see the landing zones which is why professionals will not play here.

Fast Greens, good fairfways.

Time line 4.1/2 hours because it is a difficult course.

I shot 42 - 40 something similar.

Hard course though, but recommend

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.
