Great time, course in good shape considering just coming out of oversees. Coming back soon!
Reseeded, all looks good. Greens fast,, held well, smooth. Slowed by end of day.
Bunkers had rakes (new?) but some not so soft and club would bottom out. Not good for green side shots that needed height and spin. Overall will be improving by the day. Staff attentive but not overly. Drink cart available. I like the challenge of these three 9’s. Bunkers can be daunting for beginners. Had a nice day if golf.
Poor information and help from staff
I was extremely disappointed in this course not because of the course but because we were given minimal information on the course. First, we waited two hours to go out as the website indicated that they had a restaurant that opened at 9AM -- it opened at 11AM. Next we ask if we could go out early since the course is too far to go back to town to eat. Both the golf shop person and the person who helped with our bags said there were openings. The starter however wouldn't even talk to us and most frustrating was that when our T-time did come about he told us the people we were playing with were so early that they had gone out before us. I think he thought it was us but the comment was very harsh after waiting so long. Lastly, the starter did not ask if we had played the course before and didn't update any information on it. The second nine we played was cart path only (which we didn't know when we purchased this round) and I understand the most difficult of the three nines. The cart path signs on the course were non-existent and twice we found the cart wouldn't move due to us being off the path or too close to the greens. After pushing it twice the drink lady told us it moves if in reverse. After our round there was no one to clean our clubs or help us get our clubs to our car. We are both in our 70's and although very healthy and active -- it wasn't what we expected from this prestigious a course.
This is a beautiful course. Fairways are heavily bunketed and greens are tough. Would like to see another set of tees between 6300 and 5600. With the overseeding the course played long.
Nicklaus design ain't this hooker's cup of tea
Despite my dislike for Jack's design, this place is worth the trip from Scottsdale. Staff friendly, nice pace, good conditions, Saguaro and Tortolita out of overseed and very pretty in contrast with rugged Tortolita backdrop. Greens had nice speed and were smooth. Outside service was minimal but cart person attentive. Went to play golf not eat/drink. Good experience overall. Always is fun.
Dove Mountain during overseed
Dove mountain continues to be one of my favorites in Tucson. Saguaro and Tortolita were open and Tortolita was cart path only following overseed. Both courses looked and played well and the greens are always great. Bentgrass is still king in my book.
Nice place, bad timing
The first nine was being prepared for shut down and overseeding the next day, so it was in pretty rough shape, except the greens. The second nine had just been reopened after overseeding and was in nice shape, but cart path only. So there was hardly anyone else playing and we still had a long day of it. The staff was generally great and the place looks nice,. Some of the holes were very tricky, with washes running in front of small, undulating greens. The Saguaro nine is particularly scenic. We’ll come back someday and give it a proper test run.
Typical Nicklaus Course
Wide fairways, difficult greens to hit, many raised, with big breaks. Condition was OK but not great. Snack shack closed.Greens on the slow side coming out of reseeding.Good but not great value and experience.
Very challenging course
Tough course to play if your above a mid-handicapp (16).
Staff was awesome, carts w/GPS were great, extremely beautiful setting, just a "really hard to play course"
Easy to go OB (every hole), minefields of traps, greens for pro's.......
Dove Mountain has 3 nine hole courses and we played the Saguaro/Wild Burro mix. The course is challenging but has some generous landing areas. If you miss those areas however, you will be punished. The greens were running really true and not overly fast. The pace of play was great because we played late in the afternoon. Will play again.
