Great course. Greens should be better.
Great layout and scenic course. Greens are not up to what they should be.
Canoa Ranch has changed ownership and management but it continues to struggle to return to the course conditions, customer service, and golf experience it once provided its customers. I have been playing this course since it first opened as a yearly visitor and now as a property owner and winter resident. My visiting golf group of the last 6 years have chosen to play elsewhere the last 3 years due to poor course conditions. We took a chance this year and found the traps not raked, holding water, & in need of sand. Tee boxes were not mowed. Greens were spotty. Marshals are poorly trained. We were told we were behind on the front though at the turn the starter confirmed that at 2 hrs after 9 we were on pace. Same Marshall tells us after 12 we were behind again. He said, “I don’t care how fast you are playing you have 1.5 holes open between you and the next group ahead”! Then he wanted to assign tee boxes to each of us based on handicap. I don’t care if the group ahead wants to race through the round, I’m not going to chase them. We finished in 3 hrs 50 minutes and we’re loading our car 3 minutes shy of 4 hrs. I have 3 more groups visiting prior to the end of April and we will Pass on Canoa Ranch!!!! Sad to know I live just down the street and will play elsewhere until the Management and course conditions improve.
As a foursome, we played in 3 hours and 55 minutes, this is not an easy layout that you can play in 3 hours. Because there was an open hole in front of us, the marshal told us twice to speed up to clear the course for a tournament later in the day. I like playing fast, but the four of us could not play any faster and enjoy our round.
The course conditions are improving, bunkers are thin and some greens are patchy. Still a great layout.
Interesting Rolling Hills, Canyon Course
Fairways and greens were in nice shape and it was fun to play. Putts rolled true. Sand traps need attention though. Many had water in the bottom of them even late in the afternoon and they had yet to be raked up. Sand really needs to be replaced as it is tending toward being a coarse gravelly grit mixed with small stones. Sand was packed fairly hard and it was difficult splash sand beneath the ball as the club wanted to ricochet off of it.
I have come back to play this course more frequently because the playing conditions have improved.
Right now however I will boycott playing here until they get their booking system problems fixed.
Twice in the last 2 weeks I’ve had T-times cancelled and one time changed to a later time. Friends of
mine have had similar problems and in a couple instances showed up with booking confirmations but we’re told
their booking were not in the system.
Great course to play. Will be back there soon.
The back nine is very challenging but, a lot of fun.
Great course, s l o w play
Have played here several times and seem to have a chronic slow play problem. Too many players crammed into too few slots. Great course with scenic vistas.
Good value, needs a little work!!
This is a well layed out course with beautiful views and plenty of challenging holes. It’s not in its best shape but we’ve had some rough weather lately. (snow on the course today). Carts are great, tee boxes and fairways are nice, clubhouse is modern and inviting, I always enjoy this course. They need to really work on improving the greens and this will be a gem again soon!!
Fairways have more grass than in the past. Greens need work. Rough and spotty..
The course is in better shape than when we played a year ago. They seem to be making steady improvements.
There are a few greens that have some rough spots. Many of the bunkers had standing water because of rain the previous night.
Pace of play was good. Our threesome finished in less than 3 hours.
The course layout provides some challenges and beautiful views. I also appreciated that there were no houses lining the fairways.
Would definitely play the course again.
Needs yardage markers
The course was in great shape. Very hard to find any of the yardage markers other than the 150 yard marker in the fairway. Looks like the other markers have been removed.
Always like playing this challenging course. Everything was as expected except some of the sand traps need more sand. Always a problem in the desert! Still like this course anyway!
Hopefully helpful hints
Mottled greens make trying to read a putt line a useless exercise. Please do whatever possible to improve this condition. Thank you.
