Tubac Review

played Otero to Rancho. Rancho nine in better condition, for 90 dollars expected more. No ball washers, tee blocks faded, just generally "ok" conditions. We played San Ignacio in GV the day before, much superior conditions.
I like Tubac and the atmosphere but at 90 dollars its not a good value. Otero 9 overseeding was poor and greens just so so

Golfing at the Tubac Golf Resort

Very enjoyable course to play. Beautiful scenery, some holes very difficult, which adds to the challenge.

The lounge and restaurant are excellent. Staff and service were first class. But the decor and furnishings make the place for an after round drink or a dinner with friends an absolute must.

Will play this course over and over again.

Great staff in the well stocked Pro Shop.

Tremendous driving range, practice bunkers, chipping green and putting greens are second to none.

Don’t miss the opportunity to play here!

Great course

Although I found it a little pricey it was a pleasant experience and the course was in very good condition. I golfed it about 12 years ago and was amazed at the improvement.

Great day, fun course

The course is worth the $85 fee. It has a unique feel and each nine has a different character. Rancho is my favourite but Otero and Anza each have their charms. It is in better shape than it was a few years ago which I’m delighted to see. Stables is a great bar / restaurant , sitting on the patio is a great experience, not to be missed.

Totally Tubac

Had a great day with friends. All four of us enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Stables Grille. Service, quality and quantity of the food and drink were exceptional. We then proceeded to play Otero and Rancho. Wonderful. Like Costner, we too hit it in the water on #4!

Always a fun course to play.

The new nine which were incorporated into the original eighteen add a lot to the course. The course is in good shape and presents several opportunities to avoid water. One short water hole with everyone eating lunch nearby and watching you....have fun.

Call before you go. Facilities were closed.

We looked online and booked a round at the Tubac golf resort because they advertised a driving range, chipping and putting facilities that would allow players to warm up prior to their round. When we got there all of these facilities were closed due to maintenance and seeding . There was no Information about this closure on the website. I canceled our round in the clubhouse, and upon leaving ran into two more groups that were coming in after me that were severely disappointed that they were not able to warm up or practice before their round. Call first to make sure the facilities they advertise are actually available.
