Tucson National Resort (Catalina course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1962

Omni Tucson National Resort (Catalina course): After operating as a 27-hole facility for many years (with its Orange, Gold and Green nines), Omni Tucson National now boasts two excellent and contrasting 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.
