Much improved since July, 2014. Fairways are nice; greens are smooth and roll true. Pro shop and other facilities have been reconfigured. Staff was professional and very helpful. I was impressed with this municipal course and will return.

Take a look
Walked it in just under three hours starting in the mid afternoon, playing through a walking foursome on the front and only waiting once, on the 18th tee. The course is long in places - four of the pars fours are 420 yards or longer from the whites - but in great shape for this time of year. The sand trap on 18 was more of a lake and couple of other bunkers were very damp. The greens were nice but the number of ball marks in need of repair was a sad comment on the folks that play this, and every other course in the Tucson area. The is a great deal of distance from green to tee especially from 16 to 17. The number of drinking fountains isn't high enough for the summer but fine otherwise. There traveling snack carts are seemingly everywhere but not pushy. Plus, playing in the afternoon and walking it cost about half what it does to play many other area courses that are not nearly as nice.

OBGolf has done a fine job managing turf transition in their first year with city courses. Silverbell on 10/30 was our third course with new grass, and it offered excellent conditions. Of course Silverbell's wide-open charms are still in effect. Even so, sand traps were soggy and impossible. We hope that someday city courses will have better sand. Also, we wonder why more effort isn't put into bettering duck/bird habitat around extant water holes. More brush and cover is good for ducks. Add some cattails and interesting shrubs. It seems silly to have removed it all. Golf courses are useful nature preserves and need to be managed as such.

course has nice features
Was in very nice shape when you consider they will shut down for over seeding next week.

oh where oh where have the rangers gone?
Pretty much says it all. There was a 4some ahead of us that his 2 drives each and would come together in the middle of the fairway and stand there in a bunch before going to their ball and hitting, as if they were having bets on who hit the best ball and having to settle the bets every hole.
I am so disappointed because loved Silverbell in the past when they had a ranger going around and keeping the golfers on pace.

Silverbell has improved
This was my second time playing Silverbell since OB Sports took over management. The course conditions have become more challenging as the rough is now ... rough! The fairways are more defined due to the length of the rough and one should take care to stay out of rough. Locating your ball can be difficult should you stray from the short grass. All in all, an excellent day on a great course.
