Golf the Day Away

Welcome to Southern Arizona’s finest golf resort, a truly great golf experience for everyone. Made famous by the movie Tin Cup, the course was originally designed in 1959 by renowned golf course architect Robert ‘Red’ Lawrence. In 2006, nine additional holes were woven into the original 18 by local golf course architect Ken Kavanaugh, dramatically enhancing the course’s layout.

Play 18 any day, any time this Winter with the 10-Play Pass.  Pick up your Ten Play Pass today at the Golf Shop or call 520.398.2021 for more information. Remember, there are always 18 holes open during over-seeding at Tubac Golf Course!

Our Signature Holes

Anza # 9 – This Par 3 should remind you of the 17th at TPC Sawgrass, except for the cows of course. Finding the island green is tough enough with all that water, but throw in the spectators at the Stables Patio Bar heckling anyone whose ball finds a watery grave, and it gets even tougher. The intimidation factor is high here. Par is always a good score.

Rancho # 4 – This long par 5, Tubac’s Tin Cup hole, requires three well struck shots to reach the green. Keep tee and second shots on the fairway’s right side, away from the trees and thick rough on the left. The pond fronting the green prevents all but the longest hitters from getting “home” in two. This hole was the setting for the scene in the movie “Tin Cup” where Kevin Costner was caddying for Don Johnson and Johnson wanted to lay up with a seven iron. Costner said he could do it and that is when Gary McCord, Peter Kostis, Craig Stadler and a young Phil Mickelson began to wager on whether or not he could pull it off.

Otero # 9 – Water guards the entire left side of this ‘drivable’ Par 4. We are talking risk and reward big time here! And even when your drive stays dry, your second shot will test your nerve again. Take your par and go!

Multiple tee boxes offer golfers of all skill levels an enjoyable golfing experience.  Emerald fairways from tee to green lined by stately old growth cottonwoods and mesquites give you room to maneuver and, with three very playable nines, provide new and interesting shots that will keep you coming back for more. The course rotation is changed on a daily basis so resort guests will usually have a chance to play all three nines during a 2-day stay.

Our Treat History

The Tubac Golf Resort and Spa was made famous by Kevin Costner’s 1996 movie “Tin Cup,” where many of the scenes were filmed. Designed in 1959 by renowned golf course architect Robert ‘Red’ Lawrence, the original 18-hole course was widely considered to be the ‘Jewel of Southern Arizona Golf Courses.’ Red was a founding member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects and designed a variety of excellent courses across the country.

In the fall of 2006 local golf course architect Ken Kavanaugh added nine new holes woven into the existing eighteen. Dramatically enhancing the course’s layout by adding both distance and challenge, these new holes continue to maintain the playability so loved by all who come to stay and play. All three nines offer bentgrass greens and lush green fairways from tee to green which are lined with stately old growth cottonwoods and mesquites set against Arizona’s clear blue skies. This is not desert target golf! Our magnificent golf facility combined with our superlative service and tranquil setting will provide you with a most unforgettable Tucson, Arizona, golf vacation.
