Tucson’s courses are often overshadowed by those of Phoenix and Scottsdale, but the Old Pueblo is a golf destination in its own right

Tucked away into the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, these two Tom Fazio-designed courses are regularly included on national “best of” lists.
The newest course in the Tucson area, Sewailo opened in December 2013 and is the home course for the University of Arizona golf team.
All 27 Jack Nicklaus-designed holes recently underwent a renovation, and are now home to the same lush grass found at TPC Sawgrass.
It’s a little off the beaten path, but this 72-hole course in Tucson’s north suburbs is typically a bit less crowded than others.
