Torres Blancas Golf Club
A work in progress
New management has taken over this course and are making a lot of changes. They have narrowed the fairways and reshaped the greens. The rough has become extremely punitive. The mowing in both the rough and the fairways was inconsistent. They close for overseeding on 10-01. Employees have been told that the course issues will be taken care of by the time the course reopens.

Torres is a good course!
Cutting narrow snakelike fairways out of very generous fairways and leaving deep rough adjacent did not render an enjoyable experience.

Torres Blancas golf course was very nice to play. My main concern though is if you rolled off the fairway you stood a chance of losing you ball! The grass was WAY to TALL for first cut from the fairway. There wasn't even a second cut as everything was 3" or better. I'm not a professional so I like to enjoy my game and that doesn't include HUNTING for my ball if it ran off the fairway, especially from a drive.
Otherwise I enjoyed the course.

Not Bad for recent weather
The rough was really thick. I lost several balls by hitting just of the fairway in the rough. I am guessing they will cut it down soon. The weather in AZ has been wet. This is usually not an issue at this golf course. Staff was friendly and helpful. II lost a club on the front nine and the staff called me when they found it and I picked it up.

Play moved right along
Fun & challenging course. We were ably to set a good pace of play. Some rough was a little heavy.

This is one of the three remaining courses that were part of a four course ownership by a group that had no business owning golf courses.. all four of the courses suffered terribly due to lack of money with this group. One of the courses, was totally lost due to poor maintenance and no proper ownership. This one, Torres Blancas is still playable but in mid September it is almost ridiculous to attempt it. The rough is so bad you can easily go through a dozen balls because of the deep deep grass they refused to mow. Greens are barely puttable ! Good luck but don't say you didn't know better!
