Crooked Tree Golf Course
Good golf at a fair price
Crooked Tree is a nice facility and in my opinion was better than most of the other Tucson city courses. The greens were a bit slow and bumpy, but overall the course was in great shape. The middle combo tees provide the average golfer a good experience.

Nice course at Crooked Tree
I like this desert course. No houses around to hit golfs at. Plenty of trouble around if you spray the ball, but enough room to give you a fighting chance. Greens were excellent.

Always a good time
I've played Crooked Tree at least 15 times in the last 3 years. Its always a great value. Good Driving range, Nice large putting area. Sand trap to practice from. Just played it with the new winter grass planted. Fairways Nice. Greens real slow...but I'm sure the will be fast after a few more mowing in the week to come. Can't go wrong here. "The dude abides"

Continues to be a real nice course
Had a great time at Crooked Tree. I've played several times previously but the first time my wife has played there. She enjoyed it very much.

Hidden gem of Tucson
Crooked Tree is a beautiful traditional golf course in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. There are not a lot of forced carries over cactus that most of the desert courses have. It offers generous fairways that give you plenty of risk/reward options. The greens are fairly quick compared to other local courses and are slightly tiered. They are all tilted so you are rewarded for being below the hole, but they do not have four and five tiers that make it almost impossible for the average golfer to two put. A majority of the greens are guarded by large bunkers but the sand is very playable and up/downs are possible for the weekend duffer. The fairways and greens were in excellent shape. Water comes into play on six holes with two par 3's requiring tee shots over small lakes. They offer a mix of tees that can give any level golfer a challenging but enjoyable round.
The practice area is superb with a full size driving range (grass, not artificial turf) with multiple targets from 50 to 300 yards; a chipping area that you can hit 30 yard shots to and a very large putting green.
While golfing you may catch yourself admiring the view of the surrounding mountains. You may see a coyote trot across the fairway. Turtles, turkey vultures, hawks, and of course snakes all make appearances from time to time.
The staff was very pleasant from the person who checked us in, to the starter, beverage cart, and the cart return.
For the money, this is an extraordinary value! If you are in the area, you want to add this course to your list.

The course was fun to play.
This is a fun course to play. Nice conditions, good greens and open fairways. Putting and chipping are great,

Not bad at all.
This was just after overseeding so there were some residual effects from this. The greens were understandably slow but were, like the fairways, basically ok. On this visit, there were few players who did not 'tee it forward' or matched their skill level to the tees used. As a result we were able to move along very pleasantly.
