Course is not in good shape but you don't pay much either. Greens were not in good shape and putting was difficult.

Course is in poor condition at best, they are working on it but you should check it out before you go!

This course was part of a stay and golf at a "Trent Jones" designed course. The pictures of the course on the groupon offer were very misleading. The groupon was $149 for a room and 18 holes of golf a southern Arizona resort. It turned out to be an old hotel with old rooms(not historic, just old). The groupon is... More

we stayed at the Esplendor hotel - which was terrible. My husband went golfing and didn't finished. He said the grass was so tall off the fairway that he lost 15 balls and didn't finish. The whole hotel/golf report was the worst we've seen.

Very nice course design. Probably a real jewel in the desert when it opened 40 years ago. Needs a major cash infusion to remodel clubhouse & repair the course. Many of the greens were in terrible shape & very slow to put on. Fairway lies were "down & dirty" most of the time. On the plus side, very little traffic... More

The course is layed out very nicely and you can tell that it's ahd some financial problems but they are on the way back and I'm glad as it is a very nice course with challenges but not overwhelming.

The course was pleasantly challenging and the staff were accommodating. Greens were being reseeded but were still playable. Great place to meet locals!

This was our second year to visit this golf course and our round came as part of a hotel package deal. The fairways are poor and the greens even worse. Would not waste time going here when there are so many better courses in the area. These best part was the food in the clubhouse.

Unfortunately the golf course was in very poor condition. Needs a lot of maintenance. I am sure it has seen it's day and could be revived with lots of tender loving care.

This course has a lot of potential. Whomever owns this needs to dump some money into this place to get this course looking at least average to good. The greens were in horrible shape. The golf cart path had major potholes and at many places just ended and you ended up on grass. The sand traps were more dirt than... More
