Coyote Course New Favorite

We played Coyote Course and Roadrunner course yesterday. Check-in was easy and frinedly. The golf carts were clean and well maintained. The course itself was just beautiful. Pace of play was good. This is one of the most beautiful courses that we play. Roadrunner has several holes that are difficult for me to carry so I just move my ball to the front of my green and usually make it over. Having said that, I play for FUN and don't take things too seriously. You will enjoy.

Mixed feelings

First time playing it this time of year;. Usually down for vacation in March when conditions then are much better. Still lots of damage from the summer heat??. Not sure if this is the reason. Expected higher quality based on many years of coming down to play. Still a wonderful course to play with the best vistas of any course around Tucson.

Nice place to spend a day golfing

Coyote 9 was in perfect shape for time of year.

Roadrunner was a bit of a disappointment though.

Would still come back at some point.

Great course, too moist!!

I really enjoy this course, but they have to figure out how too take away the moist and sloppy areas.

Greens are the largest issue! They are so moist that balls are plugging and you can see the foot prints from golfers. The maintenance equipment are leaving deep tracks when the greens are being mowed.

With some dryer weather in sight, the course conditions should improve!!

Challenging course

The course was in great shape, but you’ll want to be hitting it straight. Not a lot of room for errant shots.

Great Layout

Lots of forced carry. Be careful of tee choice. Must be a long hitter on a few holes to make the fairway. Gorgeous views. A very fair course.

Course Conditions

The greens were in not the best condition. The worst I’ve even seen at Starpass. The course is very challenging which is nice.
