Arrived staff was nice no problems with the employees. Conditions actually this was a surprise. I was expecting amazing conditions for the price and the reputation. I believe tournaments were held here at some point in the past. The conditions were dry and some fairways were smoked burnt out. Tee boxes poorly marked and I just expected more. Course is a desert target course not very forgiving. I play all over the country and I average in the mid 80s. Just not fun. Didn’t loose any balls scored 91. Probably wouldn’t play here again unless course was redesigned or price is lowered. I played the pines and found this course more enjoyable and a much better price point.
Making the best of it.
As with all the courses in AZ conditions are not ideal. But while I appreciate that restrictions apply to golfers I think this course is falling short on some simple issues. Lets start with tee markers. Not sure why they just lay them on the side of the cart path and don't place them where you should hit from. Also it would be nice if the bunkers were raked before play starts each day. Also lets talk about the GPS caddie. Many, if not all, of the flag positions were on the opposite side of where he GPS showed them. With so many blind or elevated greens this is a big issue especially if you are counting on the system and arrive without your own range finder. But my biggest issue is with "Shark Experience". When I booked my tee time on GOLFNOW i was forced to accept a $5 surcharge to utilize this service. When I attempted to use it at the course initially there was no cell service to access it, Then once I was able to access the service it asked me to pay $4.95 again. No $5 isn't a big deal but it is a rip off.
Beautiful, challenging course
The course is amazing. The setting is out of this world beautiful.
It’s a very difficult course with lots of layups and washes to hit over. The greens are very undulating and very challenging.
The staff are wonderful. They are very helpful and kind. They have a great attitude.
1st time and it was GREAT !!
Golfed with some buddies that raved about this course. Very exclusive and great service there. Now that I have golfed there I totally agree.
Will be back again soon.
Great course and layout but tough
Any course that has hosted a PGA tour event has got to have something going for it. Today’s players are so good that they need a challenge. Dove Mountain doesn’t, nor does Tucson, have a big boy event but it is not because of not having a quality venue. This course has all the elements of tour quality toughness and conditions. The idea that a missed shot will cost strokes is in full force here. Be sure to play the right tees or you will find yourself hitting woods or hybrids to greens with punishing bunkers and treacherous greens. Like most greens in Tucson, the breaks are hard to figure out without going through a learning curve. The facilities are top notch, staff is friendly and practice areas are great. Try to pick a day when winds are light or it approaches impossible. Either way, embrace the challenge.
Beautiful Hard gold course
It is nicely tucked into the Tortilla Mountains. In great shape. Very hard with lots of layups due to washes and long carries. Really nice to finally get to play here.
Great Golf Plus....
Got a good deal with Golfpass free round. Very appreciative of the team at Dove Mt. course taking extra precautions to follow CDC guidelines during this crazy time of our lives. The course is challenging the wind added to that and this hacker had a wonderful time.
Beautiful and challenging
Golfed on a beautiful cloudy warm day . Perfect weather, course in wonderful shape. Tees are always challenging and fun. Hit some great shots and really enjoyed our experience at Dove Mountain. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will be back.
Great layout in a beautiful setting. I played during the Coronavirus outbreak and I appreciate the efforts made to keep everyone save.
First Class Golf Course
I've been a fan of Dove Mountain well before WGC Accenture Match Play began 14 +years ago and since they left.
Every time I'm there I remember how the Top 64 Golfers in World played their shots. Even when it snowed there during third round of WGC Match Play.
Beautifully maintained tee boxes and fairways. Few Greens were showing some sign of wear but overall they were in very good shape. Greens are small and sloped and falls off like US Open greens. Bunkers are abundant and strategically placed for all playing abilities, so you will eventually be in several fairway and green-side bunkers during your round. Various Tee boxes are available for all skill levels, Blue tee box will test even the very best of the single digit players. But, well worth the challenge it provides. Good for your humility and levels all off egos.
The Practice Range and Putting Green are as good as they come, and Staff is excellent. Carts come with their Course GPS. Its even designed so it won't let you drive close to the Greens. Smart technology at work.
All around a great 1st Class experience, just don't expect to play to your handicap. And you will thorough enjoy the layout, its view of the Mountain and abundant Sahuaro cacti. By the way DO Not go looking far for a stray ball, especially this time of season into Fall; Diamondback rattlesnakes are now out and even worse watch for those Jumping Cholla's. Consider you've been forewarned.
this course has many bunkers
The course was in excellent condition and very challenging with many bunkers in the fairway and in front of the greens.
