TUCSON, ARIZ. January 2018 — Repeating a coveted national accolade, The Golf Club at Dove Mountain has been named one of the “Top 100 Resort Courses in the USA” by Golfweek magazine, ranking #1 in southern Arizona as well as #2 on the publication’s list of Arizona’s top resort courses overall.
Each year, Golfweek’s elite team of course raters, which currently boasts more than 850 evaluators, surveys more than 3,600 courses – grading each nominated course on the basis of Golfweek’s 10 strict standards of evaluation. Collectively, these raters have turned in more than 75,000 votes to compile Golfweek’s Best Courses as listed in its newly released Ultimate Guide.
Nestled against Arizona’s spectacular Tortolita Mountain range, the 27 holes of The Golf Club at Dove Mountain are challenging and engaging, reflecting the lush high Sonoran Desert’s mountainside terrain at a course elevation between 2,300 and 3,000 feet. Features include 27 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature golf, a 12-acre practice facility with PGA professional golf instruction, a full-service golf and retail shop, a 45,000 square-foot clubhouse which has won significant global design acclaim, and the popular Cayton’s Restaurant.
The Golf Club at Dove Mountain neighbors the exclusive Gallery Golf Club which, similarly, has hosted prestigious WGC World Championship Match Play competition in recent years. Designed by John Fought and British Open Champion/2006 Ryder Cup captain Tom Lehman, the private Gallery Golf Club features 36 holes and is acknowledged as one of Golfweek’s Top 100 Modern Courses. Renowned golfer and former European tour competitor Adrian Davies was recently named Head Golf Professional for The Gallery, to which overnight guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain receive privileged access.
