The Golf Club at Dove Mountain: This excellent and relatively new resort, with a luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel onsite, hailed the area’s first new Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course back in 2009. With stunning vistas to enjoy from all parts of the 27-hole layout, the wonderfully crafted holes weave their way through the arid, undeveloped Sonoran desert.
The Tortolita Mountains not only provide many spectacular backdrops, but also give their name to one of the layout's three nine-hole loops. The other two equally spectacular and immaculately presented nines, carry the names of the desert's iconic cactus (Saguaro) and a type of long-eared donkey (Wild Burro), which was introduced many centuries ago by the Spanish, and now freely roam in North America's desert regions. The Wild Burro-nine traverses Wild Burro Canyon.
This master-planned golf resort community, in its high Sonoran Desert setting, has played home to one of the world's most prestigious mens' professional tournaments, the WGC - Accenture Match Play Championship.
