Great Walking Course

I have always loved the layout for Starr Pass. The quality has really improved over the past couple of years. It is in the best shape I have seen. At $25 to walk it’s the best bargain in town. We walked in under 2 hrs. Highly recommend it for value and quality.

Not for the High Handicapper

Not for the high handicapper, course layout is unforgivable to even semi-errant shots. What would be first cut of fairway rough ends up in the canyons. Bring a lot of golf balls.

Great Black Friday golf day

Starr Pass doesn't disappoint. One of my favorite local courses, well maintained, excellent amenities, friendly staff. The beverage carts were moving at great speed :-)
The only negative was that it was car path only given the recent over-seeding with winter rye grass. There was a lot of wildlife, we say deer and a bobcat.

Always a beautiful course.....

Just a nice layout, beautiful scenery and great conditions. Played with my son and it was his first time playing it. Paired up in a foursome with a couple of great guys. Can't wait to play it again!

Great Course!

I thoroughly enjoyed playing 18 holes at Star Pass. The first nine was the Coyote and the second nine was the Rattler. The Rattler was much more difficult. Plan on bringing extra balls. The scenery was breathtaking and we saw quite a bit of wildlife, coyote, deer, javelinas, road runners and a bobcat. The staff was friendly and the service was excellent.

Door Bell

The GPS in the cart uses a doorbell tone which is extremely annoying. Add the fact that it chimes in with notices that the cart must be returned or the cart will shut down by 5:30 really did nothing to enhance our experience. Loose the doorbell and the you must be done by 5:30 routine. Golf is not played in the dark.

The Average rating is the result if the above annoyances.

Disappointed

First of all, the restaurant was not open for breakfast, it didn’t open till 11 am.
Cart path only on one 9, the fairways were hard.
Eddie, the starter was great, he did all he could to get us out early cause we got to the course so we could eat & since we couldn’t, we had to wait around.
