Get even

Take your buddy who never buys a round but drinks 3
Never drives and no offer of gas $$
But he looks for a golf ball forever
Or the wife who thinks you spend too much time and money on golf
No grass in fairways greens SLOW
HOPE THIS COURSE SURVIVES
I WANT TO GET EVEN
2 MIGHT BE TOO HIGH WISH I WAS

Cow pasture fairways

The greens are getting better, but the tee boxes needed mowing and the fairways are rough, Especially #17.
We also noticed numerous sprinkler heads that were not working well. Maybe the pump needs replacing. This was especially bothersome on #10, when the ball splashed on the running water of a malfunctioning sprinkler.

Course is Coming Back

The course layout continues to be challenging and fun. They are watering fairways and greens heavily, which created challenges. Tee boxes need work. Greens are in good shape and rolled well. Hopefully the course can continue to improve.

Great!

Course is not as good as previous years but still a great time playing. Hope to see improvements for my next round. Greens fast and pretty consistent. Cart paths the same as always....rough. Take it slow and works ok. I think with a little improvement here and there, best course in the area and this includes Green Valley. Not really that important but, would like the cart lady back, for the back nine. Fantastic views also. Thanks for having us!!

First Time Playing

Kino Springs could easily become a four or even five star course with a further infusion of capital. Beginning with much better signage around the clubhouse and on the course, a new fleet of golf carts with GPS, new cart paths, a revised scorecard that would indicate the direction of the next tee once you reach the green.

Admittedly, these are far more important for the first time visitor, and of little importance apparently to the regular. There is no disputing the superior value, so I suppose it’s a trade off. You definitely get what you pay for though.

Funky and Fun

Ok, some of the fairways were not very food so just roll the ball to some grass. And pay attention to the tips on the scorecard as there are a few holes where max distance off the tee is a bad idea. Somewhat surprisingly, the greens were pretty nice but had severe humps and ridges.

Rehab Continues

Since playing 45 days ago, the course is improving. Tee boxes and fairways are showing improvement in conditions, yet better than before. Greens are reasonably good, roll well, and somewhat speedy. Just wish players would repair ball marks on greens. Hopefully maintenance efforts will continue to upgrade course conditions.
