The Tuscan Ridge Club
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.

Accommodating staff. Got on course quickly. Saw a lynx!! And the golf links had several challenging holes.
My friends and I had a good experience. We got right on the course. The staff was friendly and even retrieved a left behind club. One highlight was that we saw a lynx which appeared to chase a ball, then strolled around and later leapt on to a rock where it sunned itself. So beautiful! From a novice perspective, there are several rather challenging holes where you need to hit over small, rugged canyon areas. It was a lot of fun.

decent course..but pricey and slow
Got stuck initially behind a group of 6. The marshal explained that the group were "regulars". Then 3 of them split off and we later were at the mercy of playing behind a foursome in front of them, one or two of them clearly beginners...which is fine. I like Tuscan Ridge, but today I paid $36 per person. Through golf now.com I thought I paid $29/person. This course is nice enough, but why would I pay that much for a course when they don't enforce a dress code, allow groups of 6 (I actually witnessed a second group of 6 that day), and the play is that slow. Not for $36/person, sorry. But I will be back, in the afternoon when it's worth it.

Stay on the fairways. The Greens are tough.
Cart paths need work
