Haven Golf Club
Fun Day Despite Shaggy Greens
Haven has always been a course that has favored my game. With the exception of the opening hole, everything is right there in front of you. The course does have some challenges-- large, mature trees, bunkers, a couple ponds, and some OB. However, there are no forced carries anywhere. So, you can navigate around any obstacles without much stress. If you are looking for a real confidence building round, this could be the place. The only knock on the course today is the greens. I realize many courses in the area are trying desperately to protect their putting surfaces from getting scorched in the Arizona sun, but today's were a touch too shaggy. Most of the year, Haven's greens are on the quick side, which made adjustments tough today. I was part of a very large, multi-club outing, and was not the only one talking afterwards about all the putts left short. Still, there were quite a few excellent scores posted, including the very respectable one I turned in. Because of the large number of players, it was a rather long round, but that is normal on a Sunday morning anyway most of the year. A slight breeze cooled things a bit, relieving us of the extreme temperatures of the previous days, and making the long day tolerable. Plus, the service provided by the concessions staff, which I consider one of the friendliest in Southern Arizona, in most cases, leaves players satisfied as they depart. It doesn't get much better than spending Father's Day on the golf course with your best pals.

Most reliable course in Green Valley
Played as a threesome and pace of play was excellent. The fairways were well manicured but some of the greens were a little uneven from recent sanding. Nothing to really comlaint about.

I had no idea until I got there that all 18 greens had just been sanded and there was do much sand that you could not see the grass and sand stopped golf ball putting. BAD

We recently moved to Green Valley and are checking all of the courses. The pace was slow. We waited every shot.

Pace of play was very poor. There was a threesome 2 to 3 holes behind the foursome ahead of them who held up the entire course. Got so bad we called the clubhouse but to no avail. Only saw the marshall on the front nine and he was pretty worthless other then waving hello. Greens were a little bumpy. Fairways were in okay shape.

Good course, well maintained,
Ball washers on the carts and windshields in the winter would be a nice touch.

This was well worth the money. My 14 year old son and I played 18 holes for ten dollars total. Can't beat that. Cheaper than the movies and we had a blast.
