“Be Sure to Try SIVLIK At the Golf Club For Lunch....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Located in the Gila River Indian Community - I don't play golf, but my husband does - and recommends the course -- however,
I'm writing about a "hidden find" - SIVLIK Restaurant - caters to the golf crowd, but many non-golfers come just to have lunch!
The outdoor patio offers great vistas of the surrounding area, as well as the putting green (!) - Great salads, sandwiches and flat-breads - service runs "hot and cold", but with such wonderful scenery, you don't seem to mind as much! IF you have room, be sure to order FRY BREAD for dessert!

“Top shelf golf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

If you want to test your game both of these courses will surely challenge you.

If you are playing the tips or even one up, you will get good length.

The greens were fair but not easy. I had more three putts that normal.

The facilities were well kept, the prices are on the upper end but so is the experience.

Well worth it on a splurge round.

“Great Resort Golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

I just played the Cat Tail course and it is very well maintained and every phase of the way it works is handled great!
Challenging but not the crazy target golf you sometimes get in Arizona courses. Greens were very fair rolling with plenty of interesting pin placements.
You should go here for sure, but check online for better pricing on tee times (not on their site). One knock on tee times as a guest at nearby Sheraton, there was no discounts for guests. And we spent a lot of money there. There should be at least an option for one discounted tee time per stay, and perhaps use of driving range with resort fee (as JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass course does) would be great, and i don't think would overwhelm the practice area. Some features like this would have had me golfing (or at least spending some money in clubhouse) at least twice in 4 days there, vs 1!

“Staff are very good; food is excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

The golf course was in good shape - especially the greens. Not overly challenging but a good round for the mid to higher handicap golfer. The pro shop and clubhouse are generally staffed with excellent folks. The breakfast is very good and good value. We were staying at a nearby hotel and choose to eat at the golf course every day for breakfast (except when we were golfing at another Troon course).

“Beautiful Course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

We booked a golf package and this was one of the three courses that were included. This course was in very good shape. It provided a challenging golf experience for a mid to high handicapper. The staff treated us very we'll, all were pleasant and helpful.
