Fantastic course, one of my favorites in US

Great course and very challenging. Not for the high handicappers as there are many 200yd carries from tee box to hit fairways. Staff here are great.

Better than expected

Reviews I read said course in rough shape. Not true. We played Rattler and Roadrunner. Greens spongy soft, rolled great, and even allowed this old duffers ball to spin back on greens. Fairways in good condition. Not sure when overseeing starts, so that could change things, but as of 9/24 primo conditions

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.
