Overseeding has made it very lush

90 degree rule today so pace of play was fair. Tee boxes and fairways arein very good shape. The greens are softand a bit fuzxy still. There are also several greens with burmed out "crust" around the edges. Otherwise a decent track.

Coming around

Reseeded and cart path only when we played, but with a great layout and stripped ryegrass fairways this course is coming around.
Bunkers still rough and with small rocks and very little sand. Greens slow and soft (hold well!) They will be cut shorter later as grass grows in, but need to be tightened up in order to roll faster. VERY slow now..
Such a fun layout is one of the most interesting in southern Arizona and nice clubhouse to visit post round, will be back.

Yet again.

We have been to this course, my wife and I, several times and every time is a good experience! We will definitely play again. It is a challenging course but friendly enough for some what beginners which my wife is. Well worth the booking and will do again soon.

Great value for time of year

Played as a single as the 3some paired with me got busted for trying to bring 12 packs of beer with them. Course was in pretty good shape considering the heat. My only beef is that the desk would not let me check in until 15 minutes before my tee time as I purchased a hot deal. So I come back and the desk tells me no problem he'll tell the starter, just go play. Really!?

The course is in great condition

I have played quite a few course this summer, and Canoa Ranch is in the best shape of all of them. The greens roll nicely, look good, & they are very receptive. The fairways are in good condition. The staff is very friendly, all this combined made for a great overall experience. Look forward to a return visit.

The Greens are in Trouble Again

The greens are doing the same stuff they did last year.....around the perimeter of nearly every green, the greens are dead or just plain dirt. The first 1 - 3 feet of greens at the edges are this way. They clearly don't know what they are doing and should have never fired their golf course maintenance consulting firm last summer. So if you need to putt from just off the green...good luck! Better hone your chipping skills. Also, to the previous reviewer who complained they made him wait until his exact tee time even though the tees were empty during his wait....we had a similar experience a couple of months ago. This course and it's sister course need to hurry up and sell, as the current management team is destroying this course's reputation for professionalism.

Nice course

Course was in fair shape but pace of play was excellent and the same with value. I would definitely take advantage of the price and pace of play to return again.

Marginal course management

My complaint is with the course management and starter, who would not let people out on the course early. My partner and I were ready to roll 15-20 minutes ahead of our schedule tee time. There was no one ahead on the first fairway. Instead of sending us out early to avoid bottle necks, he held us, sent two foursomes ahead of us, paired us with another twosome, with a twosome following us. This was on a 90 degree+ day, when standing around is not enjoyed. The starters rationale is that our contract to play was only for our scheduled tee time, not earlier. If that is the way that course play is now managed, then maybe I will find something else to do with my time instead of golf.
