Drove down from Phoenix. Enjoyed the round.Bailey was super professional. Course is in great shape. Great value. Super nice layout! 5 stars. Awesome place!
Tough course greens fast
This course continues to improve and get better as spring approaches. The greens were running at around 11 and very quick. I would highly recommend this to anyone coming out and wanting to play a great golf course designed by Pat Nguyent design who design Kemper Lakes in Chicago. The price Is great for this time of year. Well worth it and you will not be disappointed.
good layout,not is the greatest of shape
the layout for this course is very good,green are fairly slick and kinda hard to read,but the course has really gone down in terms of the condition it is in and it has been overseeded,has a great layout but it is sufffering from a lack of money being spent to maintain it,most bunkers/sand traps do not have sand in them and the"waste areas" are in horrible shape if a little bit of money was spent here this could really be a gem in the desert,the staff in the pro shop is very nice and the starter is also very nice and very friendly
Course in excellent condition
I've played Del Lago 35-40 a year since 2005 and it is in the best condition in those 12 years. The fairways are plush and the greens more receptive than they have been.
After the disaster of last year, the ownership, management and staff undertook an overhaul of everything on the course from the cart paths to the fairways, from removing overgrown bushes to softening the greens, etc.
The course can be challenging but if you follow the USGA suggestion of "playing up" and teeing from the proper Tees, you'll have no problem enjoying the layout.
The fairways are great I wouldn't hit out of sand traps to many rocks
The course is in great shape with greens very receptive to the approach shots you hit. I've been playing here for 12 years and it has never been better.
Most of the traps have been redone with new sand. The staff is continuing its overhaul of the entire course.
Definitely worth the trip to play and enjoy.
If it's going to be cartpath only until Nov 3rd it should say so on the website. For a course that already struggles with pace of play it was a long 5 hours. 3 or 4 of the greens on the back side are unplayable due to damage. For half the money Enke is twice the course. And I used to love Del Lago.
Love this course
Wish we had known it was cart path only due to overseeding. May have played a week later, The walking was too much. However, this course is so fun and challenging.
We will be back.
course was in really good shape - greens were a little fuzzy so they were slower than usual but they had recently overseeded - in another week the place should be outstanding - the only problems we had was our inability to make golf shots. A great course layout that can be challenging but well worth time and money. we will be back.
Just opened from overseeding and some landscape work. Greens are a little long but within a few weeks I expect this course to be primo. Have played here for years so that should say something about the overall experience.
New Del Lago Golf Course, Vail, AZ
Have played this course many times over the past year. Great Track but condition was suspect and greens we bad in late summer. Owner came in and closed course for 5 weeks, over-seeded, new Superintendent, new Golf Operations manager, and the course reopened on the 21st. What a difference. The condition was wonderful and within two weeks will be outstanding. Cart Paths redone, trim work done, range over-seeded in hitting area, just a great course. The track is one of the best in in Southern AZ with a lot of elevation changes and shooting down the canyons on either side. Tough course but many tees. Unless you are a single digit play it from the Silver tees. Gold and Black only for scratch of low single digits. Really worth the trim and money to play this course now.
Overall, this has been a very good layout with above average greens. The greens took a hit from poor watering last spring, and then again with the recent monsoon. I have played four times in past month, and the hreens are finally starting to come back. Definitely worth the fee.
I would say that the course was average for the summer, tho in this case, due to water problems at the course in June, the greens were in poor shape. It was about the worst that I have seen at Del Lago in my years of play there.
However, it was better than a month ago, and a little better than 2 weeks ago.
Greens in terrible shape
Have played here many times over the years-the greens are in absolutely terrible shape. Will not be playing here again
What happenned guys?
I have played this course a few times and wanted to see what I could do as my skills are improving. The biggest gripe I have from my round is that the greens are in terrible shape. The parts that actually have grass on them were slow and bumpy. The two putt rule would have a good plan had I thought of it at the time. The staff was really nice so that was a bright spot in the day.
What Happened To This Course?
I have played almost every golf course within 90 minutes north and south of Oro Valley over the past 18 months. This was my first time back to del Lago this summer. Not to be mean, but this course should have been closed. Last summer and the year before, these were some of the most beautiful, quick, smooth greens you would always hope to putt on. The greens are now gone. They have been replaced with just a few patches of bumpy grass and mostly barren stubble. The sad part wasn't so much paying $20 to play it nor the travel time of an hour and 15 minutes to get there, as it was the complete waste of an afternoon to play what was once a scenic plush course that has totally deteriorated. I am still in shock over the sad condition, and very disappointed with the time I wasted considering all the other courses I drove past just to get there. In my opinion, there is no excuse as we've had above average rainfall this summer.
