Beautiful Golf Course
Wow! The golf course is fantastic to view and play. The cleanliness and beautiful green all around the course, flowers and maintained trees and plants make you feel like you very fortunate and blessed.
Excellent Resort & Golf Facility
The golf course was in excellent condition as we played the Anza/Rancho courses. Fairways were well maintained, yet a little slower in run out due to moisture. Greens were well maintained and putted well. Overall a great round of golf.
Bird Sanctuary NOT a Golf Course
I have always enjoyed playing Tubac in the winter.. Not anymore. Some of the faraway's have a fungus on them - not good. The greens were inconsistent . The biggest issue I have with Tubac is the number of ducks that now make this golf course home. There are holes that are covered with feces... I MEAN COVERED. You want to take a shower after playing each of these holes. Totally out of control. I'm not a germaphobe but it truly is a health hazard.
Great courses. Played the Avra and Rancho. Course is in prestige condition. Kudos to the maintenance crew. Would have never guessed hole #4 at Rancho was the tiny cup hole.... didn’t look like it. Either way, great time!
A true Gem
Course was in really good condition especially the greens. I always enjoy playing this course.
Very fun course to play
Excellent layout with numerous strategic options. Friendly helpful staff. Only down side was the amount of bird droppings on the Anza 9th green.
we always try to play a round at Tubac when we visit southern Arizona in the winter. The staff is more than friendly and very helpful. The course always seems to be in good shape and has plenty of challenges.
The best part is having lunch or dinner here too. Very good food.
Otero/Rancho day at Tubac Gold Resort
Today was day two for me at Tubac and I played the Otero 9 then the Rancho 9. The Rancho hole four is the one featured on Tin Cup and I did hit from the famous spot but unlike Costner I didn't land it on the green with a three wood, which seems to me impossible not as much because of the distance but more so because I can't imagine a ball flying that far that wouldn't just skip off the far side of the relatively small green. Anyway, I posted a good example of the mixed green fairway and tan rough. The picture makes the rough link a bit like dirt but it's not, it's all grass and very playable. The other picture is the Rancho 9 from the white tees. Your drive crosses the Santa Cruz river and there is about a 45 degree dogleg right with a big old cottonwood sitting right at the bend. I ended up slicing it around the bend but at the last moment my ball grazed that cottonwood but dropped right onto the fairway and left me a clear 9 iron approach. Lucky shot!
A challenging course that is also forgiving
Tubac is made up of three nine hole courses, Otero, Anza and Rancho. Today I played Otero and Anza. As a beginner I don't have a lot to compare to but this was the nicest course I've played. I've only played municipal courses before today. The fairways seemed relatively narrow but they were surrounded by larger, well maintained rough in most places making everything in bounds very playable. I tend to have a pretty good slice and didn't have too much trouble. There are several bunkers on the course and a couple holes that seemed to be mostly a line of bunkers leading up to the green so it's good to have some practice with your sand wedge. The water on the course is not a major feature but when it occurs it's pretty much always between you and the hole. There is one island green on Anza 9, which is a shortish par 3.. The greens were the hardest part of the course for me. I don't think any were flat. They aren't crazy but they all have tilts and folds that left me over or under shooting the hole for several three, and some four, puts but they were well maintained.
Better than ever could have imagined. What a wonderful course. I plan to play here everytime I am visiting Tucson. Great course layout; senic and fair challenge on every hole.
Very nice resort course. Fairways are wide and well maintained. Greens are a bit challenging They are fast with subtle contouring and in excellent shape. Be sure to look at putts from behind the pin or it is easy to end up 5 feet past. Staff was very friendly
A well layed out course that's a treat to play.
This has been a favorite course for many years gaining fame when it was used in the filming of Tin Cup. When we first played, it was 18 holes. Since then it's become 27 holes that are rotated daily. The views are incomparable with occasional wildlife sightings. Compared to other resort courses, it's a great value for the money.
The course is kept in good shape and we've never had a problem with pace of play.
There is an excellent restaurant on site along with a snack shop next to the pro shop. Overnight accommodations are available.
Tubac golf course is a excellent course especially during the prime season .. The layout is very good and in most cases the course is in great shape. Very fair course with 4 tees for all ages and player capabilities. My biggest concern with the course is the price. During the prime season in my opinion it prices out the average golfer to play there regular.. Yes it is part of the resort so I am sure during the prime season they are catering to a whole different group of golfers. The facility is very pleasant and the staff always very friendly and helpful.. We have golfed here many times but we pick and choose the best times to do it...
Southern AZ Gem
Play here a couple times a year when friends are visiting during winter. Interesting layout with much variety in holes. Condition is OK, but fairways and tee boxes have bare spots. Bunkers are consistent. Greens are fast and accept an iron shot well.
