If your willing to pay a premium for golf this is a wonderful layout (particularly the Saguaro/Tortilita 9's). Absolute pristine conditioned course in a beautiful setting. (Not a home in sight) Fast, undulating greens. Tough approach shots. Plays longer than the scorecard yardage, so make sure you choose the right tees. Must really think your way around. Don't expect to shoot your handicap, just enjoy a great outing.

You expect the best and ... get it !

Top conditions, fast greens, excellent layout. We played fast, nobody around either on Tortelita or Wild Burro. Saguaro was close for maintenance.

It is a difficult course, hard to get to the greens in regulation. Greens with lots of undulations, 3 putts are to be expected. Choose your tee boxes carefully, can be a monster even from mid tees

A very enjoyable day, best course we played around Tucson. Not that the others are not excellent (Starr Pass, Vistoso, Arizona National, Sewailo) but Dove one notch above for everything, including very nice bunkers. We visited a few !!

A must for every golfer

Wonderful, scenic course! Need to avoiid multiple bunkers on each hole. Stay on the grass, as, not many places to play from the desert. Undulating fast greens. Challenging, bur fair. Pace of play was outstanding!.Would play again.

I play here every year on my week in Az as it WAS my favorite course. I brought my Aunt and Uncle down to play here for a special treat.

The bag drop guys were great, but the staff in the pro shop seemed like they could care less that you were there.

The course conditions were the worst l have ever seen here. Seems like since the Accenture match play left the course has gone down hill.

We played 18 in under 4 hours as it wasn't too busy... shocking... not really.

We tried to play another 9 but they wanted $45 each! We said thanks but no thanks. We were also going to buy some merchandise but decided against that... they missed out on more of our money but they didn't care...

I will play another course next time. They won't care if l ever come back though either it seems...

There are other courses that will gladly take your $$$.

Nobody showed. After paying a big dollar at the pro shop, carried my clubs down. Went to the range and hit bout 5 balls. None left, everyone complaining there are no balls. Practised putting for 15 minutes with no starter. And just teed off. For the $ you pay for this caliber of course, expected much better!

Staff - from pro shop to club house were friendly and professional. The setting was fantastic and the course played well for coming out of overseeding. There was a clear problem with pace of play and no action was taken to get everyone behind them back on track. This and a two some of golfers behind us with blaring heavy metal music really took a toll on our enjoyment of the course. We planned our tee time to have dinner while watching the sunset and between the slow pace of play and a closed kitchen it didn’t have a chance of happening.

Admittedly a hard course, but the pace of play was super slow again . Not the first time, either. No ranger the whole time, as seems to be normal now. No question that the customer service has declined substantially under new ownership from when the Accenture was held here.

Dove Mountain is typical of Nicklaus’s desert courses but these 27 holes are on steroids from the two back tees. Great to experience what the big boys did when the WGC Match Play was held here. A must-play desert course.
