Silverbell Golf Course
Heard this course was "nothing to write home about", a scruffy well trodden muni. Well to my surprise and after an hour frost delay we set out, paired with another local twosome for a most pleasurable round of unrushed golf. The course was in very good condition with the greens surprisingly quick even early in the day. A perfect walking layout with green to tee distance quite close. Plenty of sand to challenge your shot placement and water on several holes that definitely come into play. A refreshing change from the more common target desert courses. There was an abundance of bare rocky terrain between greens and tees that would have been nice to see planted with some native desert plants to let you know you are in southern Arizona. Keep up the good work as it seems the new management company is doing. I will surely return to Silverbell GC !!

Front 9 was great it took 1.5hrs. Did not even try to start the back 9 due to a large ladies group that was started on the back 9 when we were probably on the 6th or 7th hole. The back 9 would of taken probably 2.5 hours.

quick easy round of golf
fun course, nothing special, greens are nice but looks like they mow front and back 9 on alternate days. Tees, fairways and surrounds were in nice shape. Come on people fix your ball marks and divets.

This place was in great shape a month ago. What happened? Bare spots everywhere, no rangers, and my biggest complaint is that the greens obviously hadn't been mown for several days. Very bumpy and slow.

The course was fine, the greens were fine, the weather was good but the round took 5 hours. When rounds take this long there is a problem at the front desk and this needs to change.

Silverbell in good shape
Staff outstanding. Very helpful. Fareways and greens in very good shape. Cart paths and sand traps need work. Need more ball washers. Senior tees need to be moved to shorten the course. Overall good experience.

I have to say that your greens are in horrible condition. The only green that did ot have brown interspersed was the 18th and I needed to be cut. The bunkers had no topsoil and as hard as a brick. The club would bounce rather than scoop the sand. Thank God I only was in one. Unforturately my partner was I more than that and had the same experience. Poor maintenance. The 19th hole was not even open at the time we teed off at Noon.
I wontbe back, and I have played the many times over the years.

I was thoroughly impressed with the condition of the course. The greens were the best I think I have ever seen them, and they were fast. Usually with the city courses the greens are slow and beat up. I tip my hat to the new management company that has taken over the course, they have worked wonders. My only complaint was the bunkers which are still in need of sand. Other than that I thought the course was in great shape.
