The Preserve Golf Club at SaddleBrooke may be Tucson's best course you've never heard about

The western foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains are rugged, rocky and unforgiving and can be a harsh environment. But golf course architect Dick Bailey tamed the land -- somewhat -- when he designed The Preserve Golf Club at SaddleBrooke. The par-72, 7,006-yard course, sitting at 3,200 feet in elevation, may be one of the finest Tucson golf courses you've never heard of. Golf course reviewers haven't exactly rushed to the site, but you should.

Rio Rico Country Club at Esplendor Resort: Fine RTJ golf among the bygone legends of the West

They call it the Southern Heart of the Old West, and when you come to play Rio Rico C.C. and spend a few days at the Esplendor Resort at Rio Rico, your mind might just drift to a day when conquistadors traveled here along with bygone legends such as Geronimo, Pancho Villa and Billy the Kid. Located 45 minutes south of Tucson and 15 miles from Nogales, Mexico, Rio Rico is peaceful and quiet with gently rolling fairways, strategic bunkers and large, subtle greens that were challenging enough to host second state PGA Tour Qualifying four years in a row.
