    Tecolote Canyon Golf Course

    Tecolote Canyon is a narrow executive track that will test your scoring irons all day. Though you wont need to pull more than a 7 iron on most of the par 3s, Tecolote makes up for it by making you put the ball on the right side of the greens. Every shot needs to be precise, even on the short par 4s. Greens roll nicely - just make sure they havent recently aerified. Definitely one of the better executive courses in the city. Note that you cant really play only 9 holes here.
