We began with the starter telling us we had to go find the other couple they paired us with and get them to the first tee. Didn't matter that we had no idea who or where they were, but apparently finding them was our responsibility. Never had that happen before. Luckily, another worker volunteered to go search for them. Turned out they were already at the first tee. Fairways were in kind of rough shape and the sand traps were like concrete, you didn't even leave a footprint walking through them. The greens were ok. Layout was fine. The wind was really howling when we played, don't know if that is common here or not. Restaurant was closed for a private function afterward, so can't evaluate that, but just kind of the topper for a generally unsatisfactory day. We played several courses in the Tucson area that were quite enjoyable, but this wasn't one of them. I can't really recommend it.

I have played this course for years and this is by far the worst I have ever seen it. The fairway are cut so sort it is like playing on a rock. Sorry but it is true you can hit in the center of a fairway and it will go out of bounds. You spend more time looking for your balls than playing golf.

Teed off a few minutes early by myself. Another single joined me on the 4th hole. Played the back 9 by myself and a very nice 3 some let me play through on 10. Never waited the rest of the round. Finished in just over 2 1/2 hours. What a difference from most rounds. Course is in good shape and I had a great time.

Challenging course; only problem was that the fairways were pretty dry and hard.

Greens were fast but consistent

Bunkers contained very hard sand/dirt

Don't think I'll play there again unless the course conditions improve given the 3-4 other courses in the area seem better

Canoa Ranch is probably one of the most scenic golf courses in southern Arizona. The course is laid out beautifully with multiple holes having terrific views over Madera Canyon and the Santa Rita Mountains. On top of the scenery, the golf was excellent, the greens rolled true, and the fairways were in mostly good shape. My only complaints related to the lack of decent sand in the traps.

This was only the second time I’ve played Canoa Ranch but it is probably my favorite in the area. Beautiful views, a fantastic variety of layouts that challenge you but don’t unfairly punish you for a slight miss. Thought the greens were excellent even though the fairways seemed to be a bit thin in places. I’ll be back!
