Experience Higher Level of Play at Tucson’s La Paloma Country Club Golf Course

 

Tee off among the majestic saguaro cacti and the newest level of luxury at the rejuvenated, Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona. Novices, scratch golfers, and every golfer in-between find this stunning, award-winning 27-hole course challenging yet relaxing; the way the game was intended.

As part of a recent $35 million resort-wide renovation, all 27 holes of La Paloma Country Club’s Jack Nicklaus Signature design received rejuvenation of bunkers and greens and are open for play. This project dramatically changed the aesthetics of the golf course, creating the look and feel of a new facility, while keeping the traditions of this championship layout. The fresh, fine white sand in the reshaped bunkers beautifully compliment the refreshed green surfaces covered in the same lush Mini Verde Bermuda turf found at TPC Sawgrass. Beyond the ‘beauty factor’ these course enhancements allow consistency of play from bunker to bunker and green to green.

Operated by Troon Golf, La Paloma Country Club’s award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course is exclusive to Westin La Paloma Resort guests and Country Club members. Adorned by the high Sonoran Desert’s natural beauty, “The Golden Bear’s” Signature Design course is a golfer’s paradise.

Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, and Conde Nast Travelerhave rated the La Paloma Country Club course among the best in the United States. Golf for Women recognized La Paloma as one of the country’s most women-friendly courses.

Having opened in 1984, each course is named according to its relationship with the terrain. The courses are at an average elevation of 2,700 feet, in the foothills of the stunning Santa Catalina Mountains. One might argue the best views are found on the Ridge Course but play all three and judge for yourself!

Hill Course

The 3,463-yard, par 36 Hill Course starts golfers off with stunning views of the Santa Catalina Mountains and weaves its way through the Saguaro studded desert landscape. It presents encounters with natural arroyos, saguaro cacti, and risk/reward shot decisions. The Hill Course rating/slope information is based on the 18-hole combination of the Hill and Ridge courses.

Signature hole #8. 157 yards, par 3. On this short hole, two of the three strokes should be putts. A short iron over a deep valley to a green must be accurate in finding the pin, or the player will have a challenging putt on this moderately contoured green.

Ridge Course

The Ridge Course, at 3,554 yards and par 36, is considered by many to be the most picturesque nine holes available in Southern Arizona. Jack Nicklaus combined the spectacular views with a natural desert landscape design that demands careful shot selection. The Ridge course rating/slope information is based on the 18-hole combination of the Ridge and Canyon courses.

Signature hole #4. 199 yards, par 3. The mountains form a magnificent backdrop for this hole. It plays across the edge of a canyon 30 to 40 feet below the fairway to a well-contained green guarded on the back and left side by grassy hollows and mounds.

Canyon Course

True to its name, this 3,534-yard par 36 layout offers numerous elevated tee shots down to the manicured fairways at the bottom of the desert canyon through which the course has been created. Jack Nicklaus designed a challenging, but fair, an experience that rewards well-placed shots. The Canyon course rating/slope information is based on the 18-hole combination of the Ridge and Canyon courses.

Signature hole #7. 445 yards, par 4/5. Enjoy the view, but be sure your tee shot is long and to the right on this signature, yet very difficult hole. A major wash to the left hand and a sloping hill to the right guard the fairway. The approach shot be will a blind one to a green that is cut into a hillside 30 feet higher than the fairway.
