REVIEW:
GolfTest USA had the opportunity to play the Golf Club at Vistoso this past winter. Vistoso was designed by Tom Weiskopf and is nestled among an upscale development in Tucson, AZ. Vistoso lives up to the postcard views of even the most famous Arizona desert golf courses. However, it’s 75 mile distance from the Scottsdale/Phoenix area make it significantly less expensive alternative for top notch golf in Arizona. As a course, Vistoso is a double threat. This means that it has an excellent design and is beautifully maintained & conditioned. Vistoso is also extremely challenging with forced carries, lengthy par threes/fours, target fairway/greens and deep bunkers. Our only criticism was the very shallow nature of the sand in the bunkers. It made explosion shots impossible and getting it up & down futile. However, there are plenty of magnificent facets to this course that offset any differences we had with it. We think that all members of the golfing public will thoroughly enjoy Vistoso.
