Best Public Golf Courses in Arizona

The Sonoran Course

Omni Tucson National Resort


The duo of courses at Omni Tucson National offer two distinct golfing experiences. The Catalina Course–which has been impressing players for 80 years and is the first golf resort in Tucson–is a traditional, parkland-style course, offering eye-catching views of Santa Catalina Mountains and a serious challenge for even the most experienced of players. The Sonoran Course offers a player-friendly, high-desert design with undulating terrain. The course’s two sparkling lakes test golfers of all abilities.

Standout hole: The signature 18th hole at The Catalina Course, a 443-yard par 4, has been ranked as one of the toughest finishing holes on the PGA TOUR. (As one of the top public golf courses in Arizona, it has hosted the PGA TOUR’s Tucson Open 30 times from 1965 through 2006!)
