Stone Canyon Club
Recently rated the BEST DESERT GOLF COURSE IN THE COUNTRY for 2009 by Golf Digest Magazine--- Stone Canyon came in at #68 in Golf Digest's Top 100 public and private courses and was the highest rated desert golf course at #68 on the list!
"Nature designed the course," Jay Morrish says of his course at Stone Canyon, one of Arizona's most elite private clubs in the center of a 1,400-acre desert paradise. "I was just a custodian." Morrish is spot on as the desert terrain at Stone Canyon is simply unbelievable! You truly have to see it to believe it....massive rock outcroppings and the largest saguaros in Tucson make you wonder how Morrish was able to envision a golf course and then build one on this land.
This land is so amazing that Tom Fazio, Greg Norman and Tom Weiskopf - the top course architects of the day - all wanted the design job when Stone Canyon was still in its infancy back in the late 1990's. In fact, Norman thought so much of this special piece of real estate, he tried to buy it.
Jay Morrish refers to Stone Canyon as the "the culmination of my career." That's quite a statement, considering that Morrish, who once teamed with Weiskopf, has a design resume in Arizona that is to die for. Among his courses of record are such gems as Forest Highlands, The Rim Golf Club, Troon Country Club, Troon North and the TPC @ Scottsdale. With that resume you can understand why many refer to Morrish as the "Master of the Desert" when it comes to golf course design.
Trying to determine what the signature hole is at Stone Canyon is highly debatable. Throw a dart at any hole and you'll likely have an argument for why that hole should be the golf course's signature.
Becoming a member of this club would be a "bucket list" item for most; however, having the opportunity to play here would be pretty special as well. Talk to our Broker/Partner, Frank Estrella, about purchasing property or a home at Stone Canyon. You can't go wrong either way!
