Nestled against the dramatic backdrop of Tucson, Arizona’s beautiful Santa Catalina foothills are two incredible golf courses in Ventana Canyon, the Ventana Canyon Mountain and Canyon Courses. Both courses were designed by Tom Fazio and have won Golf Magazine’s Gold Medal Award and Links Magazine’s Best of Golf Award.
The Mountain course is best known for the 3rd hole- a very short 100 yard par 3 playing into the mountain to a postage stamp green surrounded by rock and a canyon. When you arrive in your cart to the teeing ground area, play from your appropriate tees and then take the hike up to the “tips” or black tees and check out the view from there of the city below you…..don’t forget your camera and your playing partners because this is one of the most photographed holes in the Southwest!
The Mountain course will offer more elevation change and a more difficult layout. Tom Fazio did an incredible job here by offering tee boxes for all levels to be able to enjoy this desert gem. The Mountain course is an office favorite here at Tucson Golf! You will find the largest saguaro cactus at Ventana Canyon.
NOTE: The Mountain course is played on even days. We will arrange your times accordingly….leave it to us!
Why even days? Ventana is a semi-private golf club, so one course is reserved for the membership each day and the other is reserved for our guests and resort guests staying at The Lodge and Loews Resort. Play one of Fazio’s first and best designs at Ventana Canyon!
