Where2Golf says: 

Omni Tucson National Resort: After operating as a 27-hole facility for many years (with its Orange, Gold and Green nines), Omni Tucson National can now boast two great championship golf courses. The older layout, the Catalina, has long been associated with the PGA Tour's Tucson Open, known most recently as the Chrysler Classic of Tucson.

The layout embraces plenty of scenic elevation changes, a good variety of stylish bunkering and a few holes where things will appear quite tight from the tee. With plenty of trees lining the fairways and eight small lakes to negotiate, the Catalina will feel more like a (testing) walk in the park than a trek through the desert, which is typically the case in Arizona. Water makes many telling appearances as you journey round the Catalina. The 610 yard par-5 15th is played alongside the (usually dry) Canada del Oro river; however the eight small lakes, spread through the front and back nines, will demand your full attention.

The most testing hole of all is the notorious long par-4 18th, with water awaiting anything hit too far left or right off the tee. A fabulous finishing hole to round off this top-quality and very enjoyable parkland golfing experience.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
