A great trip through thick desert terrain. In canyons and arroyos, the fairways were lush, the greens were nice. Water features were a nice surprise.

Ventana canyon golf. Great experience!
First time playing the canyon course. Beautiful! Course did not have our golf now reservation, but honored the tee time anyway. Shorter back 9, but impeccable greens, fairways, and tee boxes. Great vacation destination.

favorite course so far in Tucson area
Beautiful course and scenery. Fun to play and forgiving enough so a 14 handicapper can be challenged but have a great time! Got a nice price through golfnow. Probably more convenient for resort guests as drive up players had a bit of a walk to and from the starting point, although staff was good about picking up and returning clubs to vehicle. Played Canyon course several years ago and enjoyed both Canyon and Mountain courses equally.

This course was great. I am from out of town, and this was my first Tucson area course. I figured I would start at the top of my dream list and work my way down. I was paired with a member, so the experience was that much better. The greens were fast with crazy breaks that were tough to read. The starter said everything breaks away from the mountain, and that is exactly what happened, regardless of any other optical illusions. The course was fairly forgiving except for very poor shots. Yes, I donated quite a few balls to the desert landscape. The course was immaculate and I couldn't even make a ball mark with a full swing sand wedge. Most of the fairways have a funnel setup, which is handy for a high handicapper like me. My only criticism is that my rental set had stiff shafts on the irons and a regular flex driver, so I hit a lot of ballooned drives. Obviously when I slowed down my swing speed, the ball would take a more normal path, but I would lose a lot of distance for a club that is known to hit fairly long. The sand wedge was the only club in the bag with a steel shaft, so that was a little weird too. The rentals were Callaway Hot X. The long day on the course was mostly due to the long drives between green to tee. I felt like my group had a decent pace of play, and we hardly ever had to wait on the group in front of us. A normal round for me going single without waiting on anybody is around 2 hours.

Try it you'll like it
Loved the course. Every hole was scenic w very green well kept fairways. We played in 4 1/2 hours and felt like we had the course to ourselves. Practice area is 1 mile from checkin and return signage is poor. Getting to pro shop is also not well marked from parking lot.

The staff was nice and the course was in good shape. The pace of play was unacceptable and the Marshall's and pro shop did nothing to speed up play. Disappointing.
