Cart service

The beverage cart should have been around more than once through 18 holes. I think I saw the cart on 4 and then on 17 again. The course was pretty empty.

Greens + Cup

The greens were in very good condition.
However every hole had a ridge around the cup area. The ground about 3 inches all around the cup was raised because when the plug for the hole was pulled out the ground around it raised up just enough to cause the ball to move. I think there's a plate type device you can stand on when you pull the plug out and it should be used.

Early died of thirst on the course

Course was in alright condition, staff was friendly. Temp was 110 and there was no water on the course (umderstandable) but we didn’t see a cart girl until the 16th green. That is not only unacceptable but also dangerous.

The course desparately needs moisture...

This was the first time I have played La Canada in almost a year. The course is very dry, the Monsoon has not kicked in yet but is certainly overdue. The fairways are scalped and firm and the greens are slow and bumpy. Both of these issues should be resolved once we get some serious rain but until then conditions could be a lot better.

The three of us played in just under three hours, walk up and hit like God intended. There is no water for consumption on the course and this being the desert in summer that is absurd. Saw the cart girl once and bought two bottles of water but there is no excuse {even Covid-19} for not having drinking water available.

The layout of the course is such that you do not come back to the clubhouse after 9. Be advised, bring whatever you want fo consume or be prepared to do without.

Greens were 10/10. Rolled true, pure green and was a nice surprise considering lack of rain. Thank you!

Needs more grass

Rode the Blacks (6636/72.0/133) in 3H, 15M mid day. Clear, slight breeze and around 105.

The routing is bizarre, I got lost twice. You play 3-4 holes, then you travel 1/4 mile plus through streets or residential neighborhoods. I have never played a course more spread out. Lots of elevated tee shots as many holes play downhill. Many holes turn, so local knowledge would assist. The combination of constantly downhill and hardpan made for some ridiculously long drives. I have over 300 rounds in my Arccos tracking system and beat my previous long drive by almost 25 yards. I was pin high on a 547 yard par 5 with a driver and 5 iron?

The turf conditions were poor across the board. And unfortunately I did not get the impression that they recently went downhill with the summer heat. Calling this course rough around the edges is insulting rough around the edges.

All grass areas from tees, rough and fairways were thin Bermuda mixed with hardpan. Traps were not in good shape, and you could tell by looking at the edges that attention to detail is not a priority here. Greens were still recovering from aeration and were bumpy and medium slow.

I did not have high expectations for $20 after reading some of the prior reviews. What is really strange is that I had almost double my average of par or better holes. I played really well for the most part and still have little desire to play here again unless the turf conditions were CLEARLY substantially better than I encountered. Could not recommend, too many really good courses within a few miles.

This course will be better in a few months

The complete course has been aerated and sanded to include the greens. Still it was a joy to play.

Take a pass on this course

Played as a 4some this morning. Have played here numerous times over many years. This was the worst condition I've ever seen the course. Partially due to recent aeration but fairways and tees had minimal grass and course poorly maintained. Possibly due to change (or pending change) from Troon Maintenance to Billy Casper maint. Regardless, will not return as there are many other Tucson options in better condition. Driving range hitting off mats which is also a detriment.
