I have played the Catalina course three times, and each time I am impressed. This course gives a little insight into what the PGA players experience everyday. The fairways and greens are perfectly cut. The fairways are so short some of my drives actually spun backwards on landing. The greens are fast, they actually take the break that you see, so definitely play the break, even on the 2-3 footers. The course itself is difficult, but a 90's shooter can definitely still have fun. Good bunkering around the greens, so sharpen up your bunker game.
As far as the staff, I have always had good experiences. The ambiance of the Omni makes it feel really ritzy, but the staff was courteous with no arrogance. The prices are very reasonable, a six pack of beer for the course was the same price as my parent's course in michigan.
The greens fees can get spendy, but look for deals and you can play for around $50 a man.
***I have not yet played the Sonoran course, I believe it is a Fazio design, but I just can't bring myself to play the Sonoran when I know I will enjoy the Catalina course so much. This is where I play when I want to treat myself or visiting friends and family to a nice course from the Tucson area.

The original track is a great, if traditional, layout and an excellent test of golf. Forgiving enough for the high handicappers, and demanding for the better players. Most people come to Tucson to play the desert courses since the rest of the country has plenty of parkland layouts, but the Resort Course is really a good one and worth trying. The Desert Course, on the other hand, is a real hodge podge of holes with no real consistent theme. It feels and play choppily. It's an interesting variation to be sure, but certainly not my first choice.

We had tee times to play the Catalina golf course. When we arrived we were switched to the Sonoran Golf Course which had just been plugged. These tee times were made months in advance. Omni made no attempt to advise us they had changed our tee times, rather they made a unilateral decision to put us on a course with freshly plugged greens.

When we complained, they apologized. Big Deal. Had they done the right thing and advised that our reservations at Catalina were being cancelled we could have made other plans to play a great course in great shape.

The lack of concern for their customers is quite obvious as they would rather have 12 upset customers rather than lose revenue. We won't be back.
