End of a dry summer

I've played here probably 100+ times in the last 15 years and I have to admit it was in the worst shape I've ever seen it. I am sure that the lack of our monsoons this year helped create this. I am hoping they can bounce back and get to where they would like to be. Still playable, but with preferred lues to take you out of the dry/dirt spots all over the course. And, the tee boxes need to be re-graded so you don't have uneven lies from them!!!

Starr Pass Roadrunner/Coyote

Fantastic course with several blind shots and lots of desert! Tough. Greens were in great condition but people were not repairing ball marks making some putts abit rough.
Definitely recommend. Unfortunately the bar/restaurant were not open due to Covid.

Challenging Golf

Playing from the black tees is very challenging , especially if you are on the Roadrunner course. It requires a 200 yard plus carry on many of the holes. It is very difficult aganist the wind.

Challenging

Beautiful well kept greens and fairways. Several long carries over washes. 3 nines to choose from. Worth the trip.

Great course in excellent condition

We played the Roadrunner/Coyote rotation at this 27-hole Arnold Palmer design. The fairways and greens were in great condition. There are several challenging tee shots with forced carries on par 3s, 4s and 5s. But the course is also very scenic. Our only lament was that the bar/restaurant was not open at the course. This may be a COVID thing, but we also hear rumors it may be closing for good. What a shame!. This is just the kind of course where a few drinks and a meal following are just what the doctor ordered.

Staff outside were great, starter was very helpful and friendly to all players.

No relief!

Teed off a little after 1 PM on Sunday. Never saw a beverage cart! Due to COVID, there is no drinking water on the course, understandable, but at check in< I was informed there was a beverage cart. I guess it was on blocks somewhere because we never saw it. As for the course, it's playable but the greens were really soft and had many pitch marks that weren't completely repaired. If you play and aren't familiar with it, you will need a yardage book. There are a lot of blind tee shots, especially from the longer tees. It's worth playing again but plan accordingly.
