Located a short 90 minutes south of Phoenix, this area has long been a popular choice for great, affordable golf. Once you start counting the number of courses and the variety of play they offer it’s no wonder. The open sky, vast panoramas and first-rate golf are hard to beat. With giant saguaros and pristine desert as far as the eye can see, year-round sunshine, local attractions, incredible aromas of authentic Mexican and Southwestern cuisine, an array or shopping options or just some serious hammock time, you’ll find it all in Tucson. Do play at Ventana Canyon (36 holes), Vistoso, Starr Pass (27 holes) and The Gallery. Hotel options range from 3 to 5 star and are located within a short drive of the courses.
In the winter, (January to April) golf courses in the Tucson area are in their peak season, (highest rates) so you may need to book early. But if you can brave the summer heat, you can often enjoy these courses at significantly reduced rates.
Keep in mind that during the fall (September and October) golf courses will be involved in a maintenance process called overseeding. They don’t all do it at the same time but course availability and quality may be limited for 2 to 3 weeks.
