This course is in great shape.
The only drawback was pace of play was a little slow but it was bearable.

fun course to play and in good condition
The course is in very good shape. Greens a little slow due to sanding. Wide fairways are very forgiving to hackers like me. Fairways are in excellent shape.
Staff is very freindly and the cart lady is a riot. Makes for a fun round.

Pace of play is a issue
Course is in excellent shape, started on time, flew thru the front nine in 80 minutes. Back nine is when trouble began, it took us 90 minutes from the 10th hole to the 16th hole. Upon arrival on the 16th hole, we had a threesome on the tee box, a foursome on the middle of the fairway and a foursome on the green!!! Finished the 16th hole and called it a day. There was no marshalls to control pace of play, the pace of play may keep me from playing here again.

Crooked Tree Tucson,Az
We played on Thursday afternoon March 14th. . We went to check in at the counter in the pro shop and the asst pro? was on the telephone with his back to us and his elbows leaning on the far counter. We waited patiently for at least 5 minutes probably longer then that and he never turned around to say one moment one minute or even acknowledge our presence. Not a good start.
Someone in charge should have a word with this person.
Now about the golf course I have nothing bad to review except for the quality of bunkers and lack of correct sand type materials that you would associate with golf course bunkers. At this course it is just plain dirt. If the bunkers could be redone and if they could actually sculpture the shape and depth of the bunkers instead of just being flat this course could become a great track to play on a regular basis here in Tucson.

Started out bad and went downhill
Pace of play is horrendous. On the first fairway I was greeted with the carcasses of two dead coots, one bleeding out from its mouth. That about sums up the course. Needs a lot of TLC.

Great conditions-fast greens
Practice range and putting green are available. Tees, fairways, and greens in excellent shape. Rough is still brown. This course is one of the best values in greater Tucson.

Fun to play!
Course is in good shape and a great deal in the prime season. Pace is a little slow as the course is usually pretty full. Bartenders and cart girls are friendly and always pleasant.

Course is in great shape
This is my favorite public course in Tucson. Always great tee times available throughout the week. Crooked Tree is a good bargain during the peak golf season in Tucson. I recommend this course to everyone that I talk to. Course is fairly challenging to all levels of play especially from the back tee box. Anyone who considers themselves a long hitter should tee it up from the backs.

Public course design. Greens in good shape.
Large areas to land drives. Not target golf. Lacks luxury features but fun day of golf.

O.K. for the dollar
This is a municipal course I believe. There were alot of folks out to play. There was a 35 minute delay in starting. Once out on the course, it was an acceptable play for the dollar. Nothing outstanding. Would be a good 'starter' course, after just arriving in the area, not having golfed in months.

course not in great shape
fairway grass very short making in somewhat difficult. Especially for those of us that do not pinch the ball on contact.
February 21, 2013
Good features and mature
Ideal day and great conditions, greens were superb. Fairways good cut. Rough little dry.

Satisfactory, but a bit over priced now.
Have played Crooked Tree many times over the past decade. It has some nice features...good greens and reasonably challenging layout and has been improved considerably over the years by the current management group working for the county. I do feel that it has become a bit overpriced, though, given the poor quality of the rough throughout and the rather uninspiring nature of the layout. For these reasons, I have not played it often over the past couple of years. It does have very nice practice facilities which I use frequently.

Good recreational course
The course has good practice facilities and is maintained properly. Nothing great just as good course.

A good track
Slow on a Sunday, but that's to be expected; it took us over 4.5 hours. The course was in very good shape, except the bunkers only have a thin top layer of sand and then it's bedrock. The fairways and greens were in good shape, no real complaints there. The staff was nice and we were in and out of the pro shop very quickly. I like the fact that they will give you your cart way before your tee time. We were there 2 hours early to warm up (they have a nice practice area) and they just handed us the keys with nary an issue. I've played here many times and will continue to come back, I just wish the prices were a bit lower.

Very Fair Desert Course
Played with an out of town friend [8 handicap] who called it a "Goldielocks" course; not too hard, not too easy, JUST RIGHT.
February 4, 2013
Fairways are wide with ample room when you miss the fairway. Most greens are good sized and roll true. Do not see numerous ball marks which is common on public daily fee courses.

the course has an interesting layout.
the staff was friendly & helpful getting me checked in. with the combo tees it has several choices for yardages. the course is a very nice layout with a good variety of long & short holes. the scenery around the course is very nice with the mountains in the background. overall condition of the course was very good.

Average Course - Slow Pace of Play
Average Course - Constantly waiting during round, pace of play very slow. Not a course I would play very often.
January 21, 2013
I've played this course several times. It's reasonably priced and generally in very good shape.
I like this course a lot. It's not easy but not unreasonably difficult either, especialy for someone of my skill level. The price is fair and I enjoy playing. If I would choose one course to play in the area. it would be Crooked Tree.

the course was a good value for money.
We had a fun time playing with 2 men who had played before We did have a 30 minute frost delay and it was very slow play-4 1/2 hours is way too long plus there was a 6 some group in front of us playing quite slow.

Great course - slow play
Went out with nephew and a friend. Greeted by staff in pro shop - very friendly. The course was booked solid on this day - but started right on our reserved 10:38 time. Group in front of us was very slow which grew more irritating as the round progressed. I thought 5 hour rounds were illegal here.
The course itself was is very good condition - but due to recent rain it was also very wet. Not much standing water but the fairways and greens were "spongie" and the bunkers were really packed hard. The bunkers don't usually have much sand in them and the rain just made them worse. The rough alongside the fairways was not too long but still challenging if you missed the green part.

nice views, good for public play
greens need attention
sand bunkers improved recently

The fairways and greens are in excellent condition.
This course is in great shape. The fairways are well maintained and the greens in excellent condition. The course layout allows for missed shots and easy access back on the the fairway. It's both moderate and challenging. It is a great value for the money!

best value in town
Crooked Tree is basically flat, but has plenty of character and challenge. The off-course views are terrific, and there is little off-course noise. Due to the operators water deal, the course is maintained in excellent condition. It is the best public course in town, and rivals many daily fee and resort courses for condition.

not for the serious golfer...
While the track isn't terrible from the back tees, it's actually very promising on the first hole, but it deteriorates quickly after that. Conditions are below substandard- the greens are slow (very) and bumpy, the tees are uneven,bumpy and overgrown and the traps are coarsely ground dirt. Ok for beginners or for a little family golf with young kids, but not a good option for anyone lower than 15 handicap.
