This course has beautiful views... and variety

Loved this course. For Tucson area it was a surprise. Did not know much about it before this year. Saw it on teeoff.com booking site so decided to give it a try.
Wow. Saw bobcat and deer. Course sits on benchs in foothills of northern end of catalina mountains.
The views of the surrounding mountains and some of the holes was great. Looks like a fun place to live. The clubhouses are very nice. Saw they had some pools, courts and looks like other fun activities.
Good value.
Will return.

Course condition

We have played this course many many times over the years, but last year the HOA took over the operations and this year we are seeing the condition of the course with the new Management and it is NOTanywhere near the same quality course conditions as last year, such a same!
We would not recommend this course to our friends that experienced this course last year!

Rhino's Review

The curse was in good shape and as always was challenging. The weather was from hot to moderate as clouds came in and provided cool breeze. As far as value and difficulty and challenge, this is oine of the best courses around the Southern Arizona area and one of my favorites

Under Construction

The course has been taken over by the HOA. Lots of maintenance going on. Greens and surrounds have been punched. Fairways punched as well.

At this time the course is not in good condition. Perhaps will be better in the fall. Skip at this time.

Course is burned out, greens were terrible.

Although greens are normally slow, now they are burned and very little grass. Fairway's are also sparse
. Hope they have the water and know how to get this course back to what it could be.

Terrible course conditions

First it takes at least one hour travel to get to the course. No big deal if the course is even in okay conditions. The course is so beautifully laid out that it shames the owners how bad the course conditions really are. On every hole the fairways are down to bear earth, even around the greens there is not one good lie. The greens are shamefully groomed. There is almost no water available for drinking except for about four locations, not even coolers or bottled water. The staff should have been required to inform each golfer of these conditions. Had I known beforehand how bad the course was I would have saved my money and played in the desert. Shame on you GolfNow for not reviewing this situation on your sight.

Maybe you should have thought about the drive time! Did you call the golf course to see if they were doing any maintenance? You should take some responsibility

Tough conditions

Summer conditions here course has just reopened after a week to start transition and there is little grass in the fairways and the greens are like a sandbox. Best to give this place a month at least to get back into shape.

Poorest condition ever

I have been playing the course for three years and this was the worst condition the course has ever been in. there were dry spots on every fairway and the greens were not in playable shape. It was a shame to find the course in such bad condition.

Just amazing

I'm jealous of yhe course architect that was able to work with this land. Easily the most beautiful layout around. Only reason PGA tpur plays scottsdale and not here is because obese golf fans couldnt walk this course. If ypuve never played this beauty you're missing out. We played Sunday at 11 and had the course to ourselves. Tees and greens were very good. Fairways were patchy (ive played here a dozen times and this was worst ive seen them) BUT they were closing next day for aeration and over seeding. Course was still very worth the HOTDEAL price. Had a burger and a brew after round. Staff was great even tho Course was empty. Let them get punching/over seeding done and get your butt out here.
