This Robert Trent Jones-designed, par-72 championship course has bent-grass greens and Bermuda grass on tees and fairways, and is overseeded in the winter. Trees on the front nine include pine, willow, and poplar. The back nine consists of natural desert vegetation. The resort's popular "Play A Round" package includes 18 holes of golf, a deluxe room accommodation, plus resort amenities for one low price. Phone for package rates.

Rio Rico lulls you to sleep in the first four holes and slowly becomes one of the most challenging and beautiful courses you'll ever play. The front nine is located on a river flood plane and after the turn you tour the rolling hills. Just 50 minutes south of Tucson, it provides a perfect day trip whereby you can visit two remarkable examples of mission architecture: San Xavier Del Bac and Tumacacori. Both founded in the 1600's by Father Kino from where many of the expeditions began that founded California cities such as San Francisco. After an afternoon round of golf, you can drive just 10 miles to the US/Mexico border, park on the US-side and walk a short distance to eat dinner at one of the finest Mexican restaurants - La Roca.

Rio Rico Resort & Country Club sprawls through rich pastureland along the Cayetano foothills north of Nogales. The gently rolling fairway and large open greens welcome every player. But for stronger players hoping to break par, the strategy is designed to challenge their skill level. These delicate risk/reward options are of no bother to novice and higher handicapped players, as they can easily play around the trouble.
