Golf enthusiasts will be thrilled with Tucson’s championship courses. Located just steps from the front lobby and in conjunction with the Ventana Golf & Racquet Club, Loews offers two Tom Fazio-designed championship 18-hole golf courses. Both courses are designed to blend into the Santa Catalina Mountains’ natural features. Weaving through desert cacti and scenic canyons, the courses embody the character of the Sonoran Desert landscape, as well as a unique variety of desert fauna. The Canyon Course winds through the inspiring beauty of the Esperero Canyon and incorporates the massive rock formation known as Whaleback Rock.
The ILMA Foundation Golf Tournament will take place on Thursday, April 20 at 8:00 a.m. on the Mountain Course. The 6,902-yard, par-72 course boasts the most photographed hole west of the Mississippi, a 107-yard par 3 that plays across a plunging ravine to a granite-encased green. Registration for the golf tournament opens on Tuesday, January 17 at 12:00 p.m. ET. This event will sell out so be sure to register early!
