The course was in great shape and played in 3 hours. Looking to book another time soon!!!
Played the Tort and burro today and the layout is excellent Truly a good test of golf. However, the course is not in good condition, and to say it has been a rough season in the Tucson area may be true, but i played another course minutes away, in a residential community that was in much better condition. Upon arrival, there was no one at the front desk, then when he came out from the back, there was no one to get my clubs from the bag drop, there was no ranger on the course, Understandable I suppose, although the community had one yesterday. So as a single. when i caught the 3 some ahead of me with 4 holes to play, i waited and waited. It was 110 today, cmon! But mostly if there is no cart person out there, didn't see one all day, shouldn't you let the players know that before heading out? When playing a course of this stature, I would think that the facility would have higher standards.
Match Play competition rolls around in Your head for a few fun and challenging holes....
Former Televised Match Play competition rolls around in Your head for a these fun and very challenging holes....” Majestic”... ”A Sanctuary”.... “Magical”.... “Peaceful”....The Layout with (3) separate and unique designs winds You in and out of the amazing canyons-emerging with terrific desert terrain and stepping on the Tees gives You an excellent feeling of a wonderful golf escape. You can enjoy visualizing your shot shapes with which to carve Your “Ahhhh Moments”. Or not. Because shots off line or no joke. Greens were perfect. Fairways were solid. Ben in the Pro Shop and the entire Staff with their cheerful friendly professional attitudes will take great of You...! So Go Golf!
Love this place
High class all the way around. Great target golf. Challenging at every hole makes you really think about your strategy and club choice and I like that in a course.
Tucson is really hot this time of year and the heat really gets to you at the core but we still hit the course because we have the fever!
Just go. Expensive day when you golf and eat but worth every penny
Course was in ok shape. Quite a few brown patches in the fairways, for a high end course. Bunkers were good and plenty of them! Got off about 9:15 took over 4 hours and 15 minutes because of no ranger, got behind a foursome who were slower than you could imagine. Mind you it was 95 to 105 degrees and absolutely no water on the course, make sure you take your own or stock up at the starters area. Didn't see the beverage cart until the 9th tee box and then again on the 17th fairway. Had to yell at her or she would have driven right past us! We were reminded by the cart lady, make sure you get your free water when you make the turn, had to drive back to the starter area to get the water because the halfway house was closed. The starter must have looked at his watch and realized we were really behind, drove out to us on the 10th fairway and asked why?? Came back and told us the group in front will let us play through, gee thanks! Where were you about 5 holes ago?? Finally got done and went in to the clubhouse for a beer, 1 -12oz Bud Light bottle and a 16oz Stella "Draft" $15.13 seriously! I guess if you're born with a silver spoon in your mouth you wouldn't think twice but that's just outrageous. The one good point, they didn't charge us the $5 for the "Shark Experience". The Bluetooth was nice but the GPS was not accurate at all. The GPS was giving us the yardage to flags that weren't even close to where the actual flags were, take your rangefinder. You're paying for name, " Ritz".
No customer service when you try and buy something
Poor customer service. Wanted to but a golf glove and my standing at the counter was met with silence and no acknowledgment of my presence.
Dove Mountain In Summer
Dove Moutain is the finest course in the Tucson area. To play it for the current Golf Now rate is an unbelievable value. The Jack Nicklaus layout is challenging for any level of aptitude because each tee box presents a different collection of challenges, you can't ask for more.
Very challenging. The cart fee / cart is annoying. The cart has computerized features that probably slow down the speed of play. When so many courses push us to keep pace it’s surprising when something like this is introduced that slows play. We all have cell phones but next they might install phones on the carts just to add an additional fee to your round. Next time I’m bringing my own cart!
golf great, cart a ripoff
The course was great and I enjoyed the round on a beautiful day in the mountains of Tucson. However, in order to play, the course required that we pay ten dollars extra (two golfer) for some ridiculous gimmick called the "shark experience." The shark experience was a cart with a gps that every other course includes as a matter of course. It got worse. The system functioned less than twenty per cent of the round. The golf itself was great. However, the cheap trick ripoff spoiled much of the good feeling I otherwise had.
Amazing Golf experience
The course and staff were on point. The course was tough but fair and the greens were undulating and challenging. You would need to play it a few times to figure out where to place your shots. I will definitely play again.
Course was awesome!!! However.....
Ok so great course.. challenging greens. Super fast to start and the back to normal. The only comment I have is the GPS was horrible!! You could not keep on the course GPS.. it kept popping back to commercials.. GRRR!! I would rather they not offer anything than to be distracted with going back and forth between the course and friggin commercials. Regular guy golfer tip..... use your app or rangefinder and forget the golf cart GPS
Very tough greens
A nice layout, not a lot of topography, but rolling fairways and multi-undulation greens. Also, most greens are huge, so a 75 ft + putt might be common.....located in the foothills of the Tortolitta Mountains, very scenic, a fun day .
Good course, lousy cart fee
The course was in excellent shape. We played the Tortilla and Wild Burro. The greens were challenging with all the undulations., but putt able. Didn't like the "Shark Experience". A fee to rent the cart. It had music, sports, blue tooth, ect on it. Don't need all that when you play golf. Eliminate all the frivolous stuff, and keep the gps.
I can only start to afford to play this course this time of year lol but I fell in love with all three layouts last summer. Practice Areas are all well maintained and staff inside and out are always friendly. Super windy today but still had fun playing despite it.I love the SHARK EXPERIENCE with the bluetooth speakers, this was the first time using it and loved it. And the in cart gps with hole layout and hazards is also great for figuring out layup distances. All in all my favorite course out here in the Tucson area..
Such great course
This was my first time playing this course and I couldnot have enjoyed it anymore than I did. The layout is great and is fair for all levels! I can not wait to play here again!
