Played both the Mountain and the Canyon courses for the first time. I think the Mountain played a little easier but that might be due to playing with two guys that had played it several times before. Course knowledge is key which I didn't have on Canyon the second day. The courses were in great shape, the greens held approach shots well and putted true. The rough was thick and hard to hit out of. A golf cart is a must...very hilly and large distances between some holes. Highly recommend this great test of golf.

Ventana Canyon - canyon course
Played this course for the first time, but it won't be the last. Beautiful course. Wish it were walkable, but there's miles between greens and tees....not to mention a half mile from the practice area to the first tee. Nonetheless, great electric carts make this a scenic and great golf experience.

Great course but definitely resort priced amenities!
Great course conditions, rate of play, and staff was excellent. Only drawback was the price of food...a small sandwich, chips and drink for $15 before gratuity. Seemed a bit much. Otherwise, perfect all around, and would definitely return.

Nice olf Course
Despite playing poorly, I enjoyed the experience here.
Very well kept conditions with many challenging but fair golf holes. The only issue is the slowness of the greens. I realize that summer heat requires them to keep them a bit longer for their health, but this combined with the midday watering of the greens made them real SLOW.
Excellent summer value for a nice golf course.
A tip for first timers - you can't find the clubhouse with a guide dog as there are no signs anywhere.
The clubhouse is behind the Flying V Restaurant.

Nice Resort Course
The layout is nice, with a good combination of challenges. The rough and bunkers were in excellent condition. As usual in Tucson, the course is fairly tight with forced carries over desert.
My only negative is that I had previously played the Mountain course at Ventana Canyon, which has truly stunning views on some holes. So, while I recommend the Canyon course, the Mountain is by far my favorite of the two.

This is the best place I've ever played at! I mean the greens were to die for. The fairways, the best I've walked on. I mean, I'll have to compare this course to my future courses. I'm not from Tucson, but when I come back next year I'll play again. When I say everything was great, I mean it! The driving range has unlimited balls, the scenery is amazing, and the course was to die for.

Middle of summer in Tucson and the course is lush. Just a few dead spots but overall the nicest course in Tucson right now!

Great course in the foothills. The practice area is a long way from the carts so allow some extra time if you want to warm up before you play. The course was in nearly perfect shape!
