“More than meets the eye” is perhaps the most apt statement to describe the Canoa Hills Golf Club in Green Valley, AZ. There’s definitely more to this medium length golf course than just the usual beautiful desert views that most Arizona courses offer. The perfect combination of fun, challenge, and beauty all work in the entire course to give each visiting golfer a unique and unforgettable golf trip.
The 18-hole, par-72 course stretches to only 6,610-yards from the longest tees but the golfing adventure at the Canoa Hills Golf Club never comes short. The Dave Bennett layout works through the natural contours of the desert terrain, all the while incorporating strategic contouring of the fairways and placement of the holes to give the course an edge over other golf vacation destinations. That, and the natural desert vegetation and wildlife that are preserved well in the course blends well with the difficulty of the course. The course’s signature #2 hole is considered one of Tucson’s “Top Ten Great Holes” according to Arizona Daily Star Newspaper, a hole that will challenge every golfer’s resolve at how far or big a risk he can take – but the reward is an overwhelming neat score.
Most of the holes in the Canoa Hills Golf Club are pretty – with breathtaking vistas of the surrounding mountains, but have the capacity to break golfers’ hearts into a thousand tiny pieces if he is not careful. It is almost a crime to think that golf vacations at the Canoa Hills are easy and easily forgettable. It’s like saying no to the best golf experience this side of the planet!
