Great greens and a challenging layout

I have played Canoa Ranch many times. This course looks short but it will test all your golf skills...there are six par threes but they are not easy, but you can shoot a greet score if you par them...look out for the closing hole.. par 5 but with a mental issue to overcome.

Beautiful course!

Very challenging layout in very good condition with the exception of the greens. These were not comparable to the rest of the course, brown, dead spots throughout. Once these are fixed , this course will be very nice. Will definitely be playing again.

Overseed of Greens did not take well.

Sadly to give this review, but Canoa Ranch overseen of the greens did not go well. There over half of their greens are showing bad and bare spots that the rye seeds never germinated. Personally, I don’t think it’s fault of their greenskeeper, but due to the untimely heavy rain from Mother Nature the week of overrseeding. It looks like seeds were washed away in large places by the rain, because there are no grass growth, So, it was disappointing to see and putt on the greens, I hope some interim repairs can be done to fix the unfortunate condition. Otherwise golfers will have to endure the damages on many greens fir remainder of new season.

Poor greens. The traps are worse than the greens. Fairways needed cutting.

Poor Course Condition / Terrible Bunkers

The fairways were dried out, possibly getting ready to over seed, the greens were dry with multiple burned out spots. The bunkers are gravel pits. Our foursome agreed to pull any shot from a bunker so as not to damage our clubs. That's not sand folks, those are rocks. Those bunkers need to be tilled; 1" of sand with compacted sand beneath (concrete). It appears there may have been some rain, since the lips on most bunkers were caving in.

This is usually such a beautiful course and well maintained. I've played this course multiple times. Maybe I just caught it prior to the over seed; but, I can't get over the poor conditions of the bunkers.

I like this course and I'll play this course again. I'm just very disappointed to see it in such disarray.

The Ranch

I have played this course many times. I love the course with the exception of the sand traps. They are some of the worst in Tucson. They really need to fix them . I have actually talked to them in person and they know how bad they are. I refuse to play out of them. There are more rocks than there is sand. When you do find sand, it is very shallow and you end up hitting what seams more like concrete.

Getting better

Played as a twosome with my buddy. It was a hot day but got out a little early and finished in 3 hr and 50min. Last played here about 3 years ago and was in tough shape, took a chance and was pleasantly surprised. Greens were in great shape and ran well. Fairways also were good. Starters and staff were courteous and helpful. Layout is moderate and really to gimmicky holes. Nice to see this course returning to its former glory.
