Marana isn't too far from there. I've heard it's great.

Marana, hands down. They are holding a tournament there one weekend in March, so you may want to check on that, as the course will be closed to the public that weekend.

Ok, I add all the pictures to Camp Yavapines. Very solid 9 hole course thats fun to play.

As far as Tucson I played every listed course in Tuscon in one day, plus marana, all yuma courses and AV Anderson.

So none take a long time, but the best one was Marana Rock for sure. Just 15 minutes from Tuscon. I did like Groves Park in Tuscon which is setup as 18 holes, but listed as 9. Weird. Groves has shade, challenge, and unique looks. I thought it was fun.

Marana IS the best in the TUCSON area. Most people don't like Groves, but I always enjoyed it as well. A fun llittle walk in the park, plus I hit my second ever Ace there. It's listed as 9 because it only has 9 baskets, but you can play it backwards for 18. Have you ever played the "B" tees? While some of them are hard to find, they certainly up the "difficulty" factor.

I ended up playing Vista today. It was so much fun to play a grass course for the first time. The lake made it very interesting because I threw a Roc in the water and went in after it.

Just played Conocido this morning with some friends. I really experienced how less stable ones' disc becomes at lower elevations. What do people in the know do? Step up to a disc with +1 more fade? +2? The courses I play locally are at around 5500' above sea level. Phoenix is... I don't know. Lower. A lot lower. Any hypothenuses?
