Hole signs

We got turned around a couple of times and lost on #9 Sahuaro! The direction and hole signs could be clearer. Especially for 1st timers. Other then that, great experience!

Beautiful design and lay out.

When I booked the tee time I had very high expectations as I have heard many good reviews of this course. As I played hole to hole every expectation of mine were unbelievable. The course, grounds the staff were over the top. Views were incredible. I will be back soon.

My favorite course in the area due to the layout

I've played this course 4 or 5 times over the past couple summers and truly enjoy the layout. It plays long, some forgiveness on its fairways and the views are outstanding. The ONLY issue right now with the course is the dryness of its fairways and around the greens due to the dry summer weather we've had.

Course as not in good condition

Course was dry, too many dry spots for the price of playing. I know it is summer and water is important in the desert but I just played other courses that have way better grass conditions. Better to play this in winter when course and weather will make it a better experience.

Outstanding Design

Very Challenging design. It is a must play at least 3x. The first time a person is on training wheels. When a target is selected, you don't know if there is a hazard area right where you think the ideal drive might be. Approach shots are almost always uphill, making the course longer. The fairways were not very lush. The greens have been punched and sanded and are running true and maybe a 10.5 on the stimp. I just moved to Tucson and this will be a regular stop, especially with guests in town.

Too Tough

This course is too difficult for 15-20 handicappers. Green complexes extremely challenging. Fun to play once.
