Golfers become famous for their excellent plays. Golf course designers, for their excellent golf designs. Memorable and top caliber golf course designs are characterized mostly by its playability – the challenge it poses to players regardless of handicap, and scenic quality – how the design works through the natural settings of the land to make it picture-perfect. Amazing, so to speak. One example of a golf course of this caliber is the Canyon Course of the Ventana Canyon Golf and Racquet Club in Tucson Arizona. The course completes the golf vacation package with its supreme playability and stunning views of the Sonoran desert.
The Tom Fazio design is known for its layout that meanders through the Esperro Canyons and follows the natural dictates of the desert terrain. The 18-hole, par 72 Canyon Course of the Ventana Canyon Golf Club sits at the foothills of the Catalina mountains giving it one of the most unforgettable views of the surrounding desert. A huge Whaleback rock that guards the 10th hole increases this desert course’s challenge, leaving its own imprint in the golfers’ minds. These qualities make this one of the premiere golf vacation destinations in Arizona.
The Canyon Course of the Ventana Canyon Golf Club is one of the two Tom Fazio designs at the resort facility. The superb conditioning of the Canyon Course makes it ideal for golf vacations. This quality of the course is the perfect example of why this is considered a top of its kind golf course. This is also exactly the reason why Tom Fazio has been escalated to superstar status in the field of golf course design.
