Tucson National Resort (Sonoran course)

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

Est. 2005

Omni Tucson National Resort (Sonoran 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 newer addition, dating from 2005, is the desert-style Sonoran course, which provides a contrasting golf experience to the older, longer and more parkland-style Catalina course. Both nines of the Sonoran have holes routed through an open desert environment, and others located in more residential areas.

With fewer water hazards in play and desert scrub lining the fairways rather than trees, the Sonoran incorporates steep elevation changes and some unusual uphill/downhill shot opportunities. There are plenty of spectacular vistas of the surrounding natural terrain to be enjoyed as you journey round this not-overly long, but enjoyable and challenging desert-style layout.

Stay&Play at Tucson National: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
