With its own 18-hole USGA golf course on the first grass golf course ever built in Arizona, the venerable San Marcos Golf Resort & Conference Center is the perfect golf, business, or relaxation getaway.
The San Marcos Golf Course is where it all started for Arizona. This 18-hole, 6,626-yard course opened in 1913 and was seeded with Bermuda grass shortly thereafter, making it the first golf course in Arizona with grass greens. Over the decades, presidents, dignitaries, and celebrities have enjoyed the lush setting and challenging play offered at this traditional course.
Not your typical desert, target-golf course, this lush, green setting makes players from throughout the country feel right at home while giving desert dwellers an enjoyable reprieve from some of the harsher desert layouts. The course is fair and rather straightforward by nature, but don't approach it with complacency- plenty of trouble awaits as each hole provides an average of three bunkers.
