Twin Lakes Golf & Country Club
GREAT if you like this type of course
This is what my buddies in Texas call a "cow pasture" course. Literally cut out of farming and ranch property. Extremely flat with almost no water, sand or trees (just enough of each to make it look like a golf course). I LOVED the course. Very easy. Very relaxing. Only three individuals spread out amongst the 9 holes on a Thursday morning. Completed 18 holes in just under two hours!! Long enough to be a real golf course, but easy enough to shut off your brain and enjoy a relaxing day of golf with no challenges. VERY walkable...short green to tee. The pro running the counter was very pleasant. My only disappointment was that the course is located an hour and a half from my house. If not for that, this is exactly the kind of course that I would play everyday.
If you are looking for a picturesque course with well-maintained fairways and challenging holes, this ain't your place. However, that's a fair trade for a nice view of distant mountains and hard fairways that let a low ball roll forever! Found the tees and greens to be in perfectly acceptable condition for the type of course and low green fees. Good, inexpensive golf if you are near Willcox.
