Golf Course Information
Tubac Golf Resort & Spa's 27 hole championship course makes it the perfect Arizona golf resort. Designed in 1959 by renowned golf course architect Robert "Red" Lawrence, the original 18 hole course stood as the most desirable in the Southwest, and was where many of the scenes of Kevin Costner's 1996 golf movie Tin Cup was filmed.
In the fall of 2006 local golf course architect Ken Kavanaugh added nine new holes, significantly enhancing the preexisting cottonwood treed and lushly verdant layout. Featuring the most challenging fairways set against the breakthtakingly beautiful Arizona skyline, our championship course allows our guests to hone their skills at the professional level.
Named after Juan Bautista De Anza, the Anza Nine starts with five brand-new holes then finishes with what were formally our 10th, 11th & 18th. Patrons of the adjacent Stables Restaurant can often be seen watching players navigate the tricky par-3 ninth hole with its island green, which is reminiscent of the 17th at TPC Sawgrass.
Named for the owners of Tubac's golf club in Cave Creek, the Rancho Nine includes the fourth "Tin Cup" hole featured in Kevin Costner's aforementioned film. The course is also home to the infamous "Tubac Triangle," a perilous three-hole stretch that will put even the most talented players to the test.
Aptly named "Train Wreck," the 651 yard eighth hole can test the mettle of the most accomplished professionals. Any golfer whose ball lands on a cow pie on the starting hole may refer to the local rule printed on the scorecard stating, "Ball landing on cow pie: pick, lick, and place no closer to the hole!"
Tubac's original front nine, named after the Otero family who established the Otero Ranch in 1789, is classic with beautiful bentgrass greens hopscotched among stately cottonwoods and mesquite groves. No. 9 of the Otero has been shortened some 100 yards to a short par-4. The challenge is to avoid a huge lake that runs down most of the left side and in front of the green.
