Play was slow

Torres Blancas is closed for over seeding, so players are coming to Canoa Ranch to play golf making for slow play. No marshal to move the slow players along this time of year. Some of the bunkers show a little improvement. Still need a lot of brush removed along the cart paths.

Canoa Ranch Round

Good course in ok shape. Bunkers are in terrible shape.

If you use Golfnow or Teeoff they make you wait until 15 minutes before your tee time to check in, even if they aren't busy. Only course that does that and that will cause us to choose other courses over them. Not sure why they instituted that policy, as it is nice to tee off early if all your players are there if the course isn't busy.

Canoa Ranch

Excellent course and good shape except for the bunkers which were pretty much pathetic and no effort was made at all to groom them.

Continues to improve

Played during a monsoon morning, a bit of rain during our round. Course maintenance had to clear paths due to fairly heavy overnight water flow, they did a good job.
Greens soft, balls would hold, but not immediately. Bunkers still need work (rocks / firmness) but also had water in them occasionally, so drainage needs improvement. Fairways and tees very good, all green and playable.
This courses layout has never been an issue, fun, visually enticing, and just challenging enough.
Staff friendly, clubhouse open and first rate facility (although seems to close early, reopens for dinner?).
This facility is on an improving path and is a great place to play the game we all love.

Rush Play

Ranger was in a rush to get us off the course. Didn’t even greet us. Expected us to finish 18 in a little over 3 1/2 hours.

Good Course Bad Amenities

2 things bring the 5 star rating down. The lady in the pro shop is not friendly at all.. Doesn't smile, doesn't greet you, doesn't thank you . Acts if she cared less whether you played there or not.

#2 If you want to eat forget it. Never seen a nice facility that doesn't offer some kind of breakfast. you can't even get a cup of coffee . The restaurant bar doesn't open until 11 AM You would think that they would offer breakfast burrito to go, muffins or something anyway. Even the Tucson city course has something better than this. And I refuse to play the junky city courses.What a waste of a nice facility. The bar tender is great and friendly "Cold Beer" and mixed drinks are good. The food . We ordered a Pecan crusted chicken salad. The chicken was some kind of Processed Meat. Not real chicken. Too Too Bad.

Great Conditions

Course is in really good condition given the super hot weather with no rain. Greens roll really nicely and fairways are in great shape. Bunkers need help (but that is almost all Arizona courses). Would highly recommend playing it now while it is in this shape.
