Course was in poor shape, fairways were very bare, tee boxes were also in bad shape. I played here in August of 2015 and the course condition was excellent. It looks like the course has fallen on hard times. I will not return.

Very nice layout. Older front 9 and newer back 9 added in about 1999 or so. There are two things I like about the two 9's. On the front 9 I can bang it away with the driver, and I'm a bit wild with that club, but sometimes I hit it straight and have some chances for birdie. On the back 9, you can be selective, and it offers a choice of driver or three wood and a few different sets of tees, one for senior's, which I like, and a white and a black, plus ladies tees. Winding around through a mesquite forest of Southern Arizona, the back 9 is very friendly, but take a calculated risk and you could end up in trouble, and be obliged to chip out. There's something for every type of golfer. I personally like the variety of the back 9 and the layout is perfect. Then when finished, there's some great Mexican food if you like. It's always a new challenge at this course and I never get tired of it. Under new ownership, the course is undergoing some "user friendly changes", such as eliminating trash near several landing areas; (& therefore minimizing "lost balls") and moving certain tees back, for strategy, & also some tees forward, like USGA and Jack Nicklaus suggest, "Play It Forward."; you'll make more birdies and have more fun. After you finish, also, take a tour of the old town of Old Bisbee has some history going back to the days of Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday, houses built on the mountain sides, very unique. I'm liking this course, now, more than ever.

This is a great little rv park for golfers and non golfers. We did not play golf but it sure was pretty and looked like people were having fun. Big rv spaces, easy to back in to. Very clean, affordable. And best of all, the restaurant across the street at the golf course had great, cheap food and really nice people. It is very close to the Mexican border but we felt super safe as there are border patrol trucks everywhere. It is only about 15 minutes from Bisbee which is a great tourist destination. We would definitely stay here again!

This course is in the worst shape I have ever seen it!!!!!!!!! It’s my understanding the course is under new management\ ownership; boy do they need to learn how to run a course.

Let’s see, where to start; right from the start (driving into the parking lot) the course appeared to have issues. Initial appearance is one of a dead course; brown grass and dirt patches. Entered to check-in, the once starter/ pro shop attendant replaced and all operations moved to the Bar. The lady behind the Bar could not find my tee time\ name (called at 7:30 to setup for 10:00). I was told there were 6-9 groups and to find a gap. Ok, went outside, it was a goat rope; no control, golfers doing as they wish, no one controlling the tees etc. Once on the course, the condition of the course was extremely bad. Fairways were dead and had little to no grass, greens were brown in color and had not been cut, and appears like not over seeding was conducted.

In a nut shell, if I hadn’t drove 40 mins I would have left. Do not waste your time and money until course owners learn how to run a golf course!!!!!!!!!
