Tin Cup...A lot of fun!
I grew up on the courses in Houston where the US Open scenes of the movie Tin Cup were filmed, so I have played those before and they are some of the best courses I've ever stepped foot on. I recently learned of the Tubac Golf Resort course being the location for the scenes that were shot of the charity tournament and the qualifying rounds. This course is a lot of fun. The Tin Cup locations are marked with signs and you can even try to make the 240 yard 3 wood shot that Costner made in the bet right before he was fired by Don Johnson's character. I highly recommend this course if you're a Tin Cup fan and like a well-groomed course. The staff are very nice in the shop as well. I'm definitely coming back.
Had another great weekend in Tubac. Rancho and Otero 9’s, course not long or hard but the surroundings r beautiful
GREAT COURSE FOR THE MONEY
Very nice course and very friendly staff. Set up for COVID 19 safety.
Love this course!
Tubac is fast becoming my favorite course in my new hometown! The three nines are each enjoyable and challenging!
A Tin Cup Classic
Really in great shape for the heat of the summer in southern AZ. tees off at 9:20 and was back in the Catalina Foothills by 2. Fairways were tight and good, most teeing grounds were in good shape, AND made it on in 2 from the Tin Cup “try it” spot! Friendly staff, really spectacular value.
Hidden Gem in Southern AZ
This is one of the most beautiful courses you will play anywhere in Arizona. But since it is 45 minutes south of Tucson not a lot of people outside of Tucson and southern Arizona know about it. Besides the beauty of the course and its surroundings, the course itself was in great shape. Fairways and greens were near perfect and the pace of play for our 4some was right at 4 hours. If you are visiting Tucson, or live in Tucson, it is well worth the drive down to Tubac for this course. Then go a just two miles further after for margaritas and food at Elvira's in the actual village of Tubac.
Rancho 9 Great Track
Played as a 4some today. Weather was great. Rancho (Tin Cup) design a great layout. Unique holes. Wouldn't make the drive from Tucson to play the other two 9's. They are mediocre. Disappointed in the condition of the fairways. Grass spotty and inconsistent. Greens putted true but a bit slow.
Course also seemed lax on Covid-19 safety. Though they permitted 1 person carts, there was a ball/club washer on the carts as well as divot sand bottles. With Covid-19 raging I would expect them to take greater precautions.
Went to Tubac for a change of venue during the Covid19 mess. Warm welcome, good pace of play, not terribly difficult or tricky and on a really hot day, we really enjoyed ourselves.
Weekend in Tubac
Golf course is not difficult and you can score well. For June greens were in great shape
Had visitors in from it of town and they loved it. One of my favorite courses in Arizona.
