In 1854 Mexico sold the land parcel known as San Ignacio de la Canoa to the U.S., thus the name of the Arthur Hills' 18-hole golf course located in Green Valley, Arizona.
Just 20 minutes south of Tucson, this par 71 facility built in 1989, offers yardages from 5,200 to 6,704 depending on the tees selected. The strategy is sublime. One outstanding feature is the visibility from tee to green. Golfers see everything they must encounter before they swing the driver.
The club is at 3,000 feet elevation which offers a cooler temperature in the middle of the summer than other Tucson courses. San Ignacio is the site of extensive practice facilities and offers world famous John Jacobs Golf Schools throughout the year.
