Golf at the Oro Valley Country Club
One of the Tucson area’s original private golf courses, the Oro Valley Country Club opened in 1959 with an 18-hole, 72-par course designed by renowned golf course architect Arthur Hills. The championship course offers classic, Midwestern-style golf with tree-lined fairways. The easily walkable regulation course has served as home to the Southwest Amateurs, the Ladies’ Pac-10 and the qualifying rounds for the Arizona and U.S. Opens. Many of the holes offer dramatic views and, while much of the course is flat in nature, there is some variety in elevation. The signature, 18th hole incorporates a manmade lake, bunkers and sand to make it one of the most difficult finishing holes in the area. The scrupulous bent-grass greens are kept in immaculate condition, over seeding with Bermuda grass in the winter months to ensure an enjoyable, luxury golf experience for members year-round.
Beginning golfers and champions alike are well served at the Oro Valley Country Club course, which has remained relevant with the golf community thanks in large part to renovations of the course and facilities through the years. The entire course was updated in 1987 by Hill’s understudy, Keith Foster. Members of the Oro Valley Country Club can also partake of modern, state-of-the-art facilities including three separate short-game greens, six sets of tee boxes to suit every golfer, and full-swing driving ranges. The full-service pro shop offers cutting-edge equipment and lessons, both private and group, to improve any golfer’s game. There is also a selection of leagues and tournaments offered throughout the year to keep residents actively engaged in the golf community.
