The golf course design is great but the greens are far too drastic for the average or even a 2-10 handicap player. Diabolical to be exact. The greens are too small and way too many mounds and slopes all over every green . If the grounds crew cut the greens to run at 10.5 to 12 on the stemp meter they would be unplayable.
But the track and views are spectacular. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful.
Growing into great
The course has reopened Saguaro and Tortolita after refreshing most of the bunkers and all the greens after 20+ years. Saguaro is recovering nicely but cart path only which added at least an hour to the round. Tortolita is lush in the fairways and well recovered enough to allow carts on a 90 degree entry/exit. Obviously pace of play improved greatly but still a 5 hr round.
Great course. Great staff. Look forward to playing here again next time I’m through Tucson.
Great course would of gave higher but they just over seeded fairway on one of the 9s so had to play cart path only on that 9 holes.
Re-seeding operations in process and going well it seems., The greens were beat up and blotchy. Looks like bad turf conditions underneath. Need help.
Nice Tract good conditions
Not difficult. Wide open fairways, easy to hit. Par 3’s . Not much nuance. Bunkers not very strategic. Good hitting surfaces. Greens rolled true, good condition, no undulations. Good course for intermediate golfer. Overall not too interesting.
Kinda Rough Shape
Several Greens were very patchy and the traps were more like gravel pits.
Thus course is normally meticulously maintained, so this was a tad disappointing.
Staff was still as superb as ever!
This course is one of the most scenic desert courses I have ever played, with mountain views and tons of saguaros and other cacti and desert plants. It is also one of the hardest since many holes go uphill and play way longer than their yardage. The layout is typical Nicklaus with visual intimidation and strategically placed bunkers and large, undulating, and well-guarded greens. Conditions weren't the best since it is overseeing time. The greens were bumpy and slow as some of the grass has gone dormant, and one nine was cart path only due to the extra watering. The practice facility was nice and the staff was very attentive, as you would expect from a resort course. This is definitely a challenging course that requires you to bring your A game.
Tees and Fairways = good, Greens = very poor
It is overseed season, but the tee boxes and fairways were good. The greens were in very bad shape, very disappointing.
Foursome in front of us thought they were good and were thoroughly involved in their shots. Took me twice as long to play 18 as normal. Not as fun as usual.
Great course right now for the money
Like most if not all Tucson courses right now, Dove is having trouble handling the excess rain. But the greens are good, rolling true, fairways playable (with some preferred lie locations) and you cannot beat the challenging layout. Use judgement in the bunkers ... some are still retaining water. I tee'd off at noon as a single and played a wonderful round in light rain, solo the whole way, for dirt cheap, in 3 hours.
