Slope 133
Rating 72.2

The Ocotillo Golf Resort sits on 185 acres and features lush contoured fairways that flow gently amid patches of mature trees, vibrant flower beds, pretty waterfalls and numerous lakes.

The Gold nine is a devilish test and not just because water comes into play on six of the holes. The greens have a lot of slope in them and are difficult to read. And some pin placements are brutal; hit a downhill putt two feet past the
hole, and it might roll down into a swale and 30 feet by. Uphill putts, on the other hand, are extremely difficult to get to the hole, if for no other reason than Ocotillo's greens aren't as fast as some of the Valley's marquee desert courses.

Two holes stand out on the Gold: No. 5 is a 212-yard par 3 with water running down the entire left side; and No. 9 is a 468-yard par 4 with a carry over water from the tee -- water that dissects the fairway about 50 yards short of the green and water left to the green. Par there is a great score.

Ocotillo's Blue Course is a watery grave; water comes into play on eight of the nine holes. It's not overly long but there's so much water the length becomes irrelevant. The best hole may be No. 1, a 590-yard par 5. Big hitters are faced with the classic risk-reward: Do they lay-up on their second shot or try to fly a tributary that splits the fairway about 50 yards short of the green?

Good course, poor catering offer..

Great course and value. But food and drinks offer is way worse than three years ago before Phil took over. Limited menu and understaffed. Especially in the morning. However the staffers in the morning are excellent..just need more support. Please clean seating area cushions. They are filthy. Wenworth have the hospitality contract and should be put on notice to improve.

Good Track

Have played this course a few times and probably will again for the right price. Like to see a ranger once in awhile to help with slow play. Other than that has a decent layout with some fun holes!

First Time Playing

Slow pace- unfriendly marshals

Was excited to play this course for the first time and was really let down by the terrible shape of the greens, uneven tee boxes and sloppy conditions overall (after all it barely rains in Arizona). I can see the potential greatness of the course, but it was not in great shape on this day. My passing partners said I should revisit in April as it would be in better shape… for the money, it should have already been in perfect shape, I will be hesitant to go back when I can play courses for half the price in better condition

Ocotillo

At $100 for rate range balls should be included
Hitting off mats when range is open is bad
We played as an 8some and kept up easy and no Marshall on the course to question us

Nice but Furry

Phoned club ahead of time to inquire which 9’s we were playing. Were advised Blue/Gold. Perfect as white was cart path only and that’s painful. Starter gets us going - you’re playing Blue/White! Ahh no pro shop said Blue/Gold. Then starter advises he has been working there for a decade and it’s Blue/White. Have played Ocltillo a dozen times and might have seen Gold twice. White was painful - rough was inches deep. Group ahead of us searching for balls 100 yds straight off the tee box. Grass is lush - get the mowers out. Massive bird problem and what they leave behind. 100’s in one spot at a time. Shoes were gross after. White Hole 8 green front right bunker full of seeded grass. No sand. Bunkers generally poor, no sand. Lovely place to play but avoid White nine at all costs.
