Kino Springs Golf Course sits along the Santa Cruz River, sprawling across gently rolling hills dappled with mesquite and oak trees. The course is part of the historic Yerba Buena Ranch. The origins of the ranch date back to 1691 when explorer Father Eusebio Kino found sanctuary at Kino Springs on one of his frequent expeditions through Sonora and Arizona. The scenic location is popular among avid birdwatchers, who know it as a major flyway where you'll be able to spot flycatchers, orioles, kingfishers, grey hawks and more. The par-71 layout measures 6,500 yards. The first holes play across grassy meadows but by the no. 5 you're in canyon country. The last five holes at Kino Springs G.C. are framed by mature pine trees with elevated tees that offer views of the river.

    This is the best course in Southern Arizona. The greens are immaculate, the hole layouts, especially 5 thru 13, are devious and the shots you face here are like nothing else. Some traditionalists don't like this course but all avid golfers and all locals I've spoken with love it. This place has history (Stewart Granger's old ranch is a place that John Wayne and Ava Gardener stayed often), with incredible views and rolling terrain. Its low budget and homespun. But every shot is a challenge and some of the greens are unreadable, confounding and super fast. I don't know how Keith Mundy and Rick Smith do it on their budget. Kino offers real golfers a really great track that you'll never forget. Its fantastic. Go there. Thank me later!
