Tucson Starr Pass golf course review

Independent tips for the professional at Leisure

February 2009

 

The Starr Pass golf course is remarkably challenging.  The course hotel is a Marriott (not dog friendly), so we stayed at the Tucson El Conquistador resort and drove over to Starr Pass.

Starr Pass is a challenging course by any standard, and even a scratch golfer will find it challenging.

If you want to have a nice day, leave the score card alone and enjoy the scenic views and fun shots!



The turf looks artificial, and you can see the green dye marks on the edges of the fairways.  The course is very fast, and the fairways are like glass, with tons of roll.



 

The most famous hole at Starr Pass is #6 on the Coyote course, the site of the original stagecoach run through the mountain pass.

It has a tight opening (center) and if your drive can blast through the narrow fairway it opens up into a gorgeous approach area with an elevated green.
