|The Golf Club at Vistoso has been ranked as the top public course in Tucson by Golf Digest for good reason….it is one outstanding layout! It’s easy to understand why designer Tom Weiskopf liked this property so much. As is his custom, Weiskopf used the natural terrain, without upsetting the flow of the land, and routed the course in harmony with its surroundings. This balance of vegetation and desert surroundings give the golfer a feeling that each hole blends into the landscape in a natural, complimentary style. Vistoso means “colorful views” and there is plenty of scenery, from the surrounding desert flora and fauna to the Catalina and Tortolita mountains in the background. Many favorite holes are perfectly framed by these mountain views from the tee to the green, where missed putts typically flow to the Tucson valley floor off in the distance. Golfers are not asked to drive over endless desert wastes, but can be lulled by the generous fairways that demand accuracy and iron selection for every approach. The greens are well bunkered but are easy to read and extremely fair. The condition of the golf course, particularly the greens, is considered to be one of the best in Tucson. After the round, and perhaps a bit of shopping in the well stocked pro-shop, the patio of The Golf Club at Vistoso offers a perfect perch to watch the late afternoon glow on the nearby mountains and enjoy some terrific clubhouse cuisine. The friendly and knowledgeable staff can provide you with everything from lessons, to golf clubs to assistance with a corporate outing. Located in Oro Valley, just north of Tucson, Vistoso is an easy drive from just about anywhere. Adjacent to the golf course are casitas available for those who want to play this gem over and over again. The Golf Club at Vistoso is a must see for any golfer coming to Arizona.
