Ventana Canyon Golf And Golf Course Homes

A Tucson Gold Community With Two Great Courses In One Beautiful Place

Ventana Canyon Golf The Lodge At Ventana CanyonThe Ventana Canyon Golf Courses are located in Ventana Canyon. It is one of the most beautiful canyons in the Santa Catalina front range. And one of the least visited.


The trail head is somewhat hidden in Ventana Canyon Resort employee’s  parking lot. Another reason is it is a tough climb. The front range trail includes several sections of steep and rocky switchbacks.

In Spanish, Ventana means window. And in this case the “window” is a 15 by 25 foot opening in solid rock. It rests at one of the peaks in the Santa Catalina Front Range.

The route up Ventana Canyon leads to “The Window”. The climb is challenging, but presenting memorable views of sheer canyon walls. And, of course, a panorama of other mountain ranges and the City of Tucson.

Ventana Canyon homes range from cozy villas to spacious luxury homes. Many are setting on the cliffs in the Catalina Foothills overlooking the Canyon and City of Tucson.

Now For Golf

Each Ventana Canyon Golf Course offer unique character and natural desert golf experience. Surrounded by lush Sonoran desert vegetation.

Majestic saguaro cacti are on most fairways. But Ventana Canyon Golf is not your typical desert target golf. Fairways are relative wide and green accessible. But elevation changes and large rolling greens create some interesting shots.

Both courses have a surprising element of judgment in making your club selections.

The Mountain Course

Ventana Canyon Golf - mountain course - 3rd holeThe Mountain Course is know as one the most difficult course in Tucson. Some suggest one of the most difficult in the entire state.

Desert courses often leave you guessing on yardage and distances. Studded with with optical illusions. But not at the Mountain Course at Ventana. Fazio created well defined fairways and bunkers. You know where to hit it. But can you?

Giving players the depth perception needed to make good club selections.

The Mountain course climbs up the Santa Catalina foothills. The highest point on the golf course is signature third hole.

The Mountain course has lots of elevation changes and is definitely not a walking course. And the views of Tucson and surrounding mountains are outstanding.

Approach shot need to be precise. But getting on the green is when the battle begins. The greens are fast, but true. But because the course is on the side of a mountain, the greens are very hard to read. The mountain is a major factor in getting the ball into the hole. ‘

The Canyon Course

But the Canyon course takes a different route. The front nine winds down through the Esperrero Canyon.

Fun course, but hilly. Many elevated tee boxes with awesome views, some with awesome hills to climb to get to the tee box! The mountain has a huge effect on putts! The starter will warn you and it doesn’t take long to become a believer!

Ventana Canyon Golf - Canyon Course _Whaleback RockAs you make the turn to the back nine, you see the iconic Whaleback Rock to the left of the green. It forces you to play to the right and into the large bunkers.

With generous fairways and picturesque views throughout, you are sure to enjoy this desert gem!

Ventana Canyon is an area north of Sunrise and east of Kolb Road. It is an established luxury Tucson subdivision in the Catalina Foothills. And Lowes Ventana Resort is nearby.
