The Tuscan Ridge Club
This course can be very difficult at times.
I had very good time, but the golf cart had a break down. I really need to play the course more to really give a better review for it was my first time on it.

letter in Chico Enterprise regarding Tuscan ridge golf. Danger!!!!
Golf course seems to have no plan for emergencies
On Sunday, Sept. 20, I was playing Tuscan Ridge Golf Course. At the 17th hole I was hit in the head with a ball and was bleeding profusely. Fortunately I had my cellphone and was able to call 9-1-1 and was told they would send someone immediately.
I had my friend take me up to the clubhouse so the medical responders could find me. A firetruck with lights and sirens along with an ambulance and supervisor for the EMTs arrived and evaluated my wound and consequently sent me to Enloe Medical Center for stitches, staples and a CAT scan. I now have staples in my scalp and a black eye.
All the while this was going on, not one person from the staff at this golf course came out to offer any assistance, bag of ice, absolutely nothing. This all took place in their parking lot right outside the clubhouse.
When later the management was approached, their only response was that they are short staffed and money is tight. Well, if someone has a heart attack or snake bite and can't get themselves to help, then what? Is it Tuscan's policy to just say "Oh well?"
There does not seem to be any policy in place to handle this situation or any other for that matter. People need to understand this before they go and play this course. It is negligence of the first order..

Very enjoyable round of golf. The greens were tracking the best I have ever seen them. The staff was very friendly. It was exactly what I was looking for, a relaxing round of great golf to kick off a 5 days weekend.

Nothing good to say about this course. A good place for jack rabbits.

This course should be the crown jewel of Chico but right now its just average. The greens were in very good condition and difficult. There was plenty of break and they were nice speed. The course itself has obviously suffered from the drought. Lots of brown spots and dead areas, plenty of lies that were more dirt than grass. Some of the tee boxes needed a lot of work, tough to find a green spot to tee it up on. Aside from that the course is fun and very challenging. If you haven't played this course before it is much more difficult. #10,17 have tough landing spots and can be difficult to play if you don't know where you are going. #18 requires a carry over the canyon so make sure your ready. Overall a fun facility that could be so much more but times are tough and for the price we got it was worth it.

Had a few great shots because of roll out. Not to tricky, but stay in fairway. Or bring a rock club .

If they find a real GM
This facility should be at the forefront of butte county golf at this point.But it is NOT! The owner has put a unprofessional, who cares nothing about golf, at the general manager position about 4 years ago and nothing has gotten better. Sadly the owner stands by everything this guy does.Its very unfortunate for the staff, which is constantly new because the GM does not know how to work with people, so he fires them. His greatest accomplishment is a 2 day music festival in which a couple hundred people showed. A corporate built raft to join 8000 college kids on the river.And the GM has allowed toxic spraying to go on without proper licensing .Now I`m talking about rafts, music festivals and toxics. And you may ask "What does that have to do with golf?" And my reply will be"Nothing" which is my point. The general manager does nothing at tuscan ridge golf to promote golf.In fact,just the opposite! I will continue to inform anyone who'll listen , about Tuscan ridge and its GM.

beautiful greens but tough to read
The view of the valley is beautiful. The greens are well kept and challenging and much more fun if you take a cart. Lots of rocks, so stay in fairways. A beginning golfer might not enjoy this course.
This is exciting to play, you will not get bored.
