Known by locals as one of "the best golf courses in Tucson, Arizona" The Views Golf Club has 18-holes of spectacular desert golf.
The Views Golf Club has earned a reputation as one of the hidden gems in the rich Tucson-area golf scene. Starting with the elevated tee shot from the first tee to the challenging approach on #18, every aspect of your game will be tested.
Once you find the fairway and study your approach to the first green, you will notice the other design element found throughout the course: Large, subtly elevated, rolling greens. The front nine meanders through spectacular dry washes or arroyos that will test your nerve as well as your course management skills. Hole #9 perhaps serves as the best example of this. You must lay up to the edge of a large bluff to set up your best approach to the heavily bunkered green. This par 4 of only 399 yards from the championship tees was voted one of Tucson Dream 18 holes.
The back 9 takes you to the higher ground of The Views Golf Club. More elevated tee shots, sharp dog-legs and spectacular mountain views highlight the inward half of the course. Avoid the deep pot bunker on #18 and you will have successfully navigated this beautiful, but deceptively challenging, course.
With eight sets of tees for both men and women, you will certainly find a tee location that fits your game. From the championship tees that stretch to 6715 yards with a course rating of 72.2 and a slope of 133 to the forwards tees of 4775 yards with a course rating of 69.6 and slope of 112, the options make the course enjoyable for every skill level.
The Views Golf Club is a community-owned facility that offers annual passes as well as daily fee rates. The Club allows members to use private carts on the course and also offers rental carts. It has a full service pro shop with lessons available from PGA professionals, a full-swing driving range and a complete short game practice area.
The Club has 18 and 9-hole golf leagues for both men and women that play weekly events. We also offer couples golf that plays monthly tournaments in addition to various mixers and special events throughout the year. Upon completing your round, reflect on your day and enjoy a cold beverage at our full-service restaurant, The Views Restaurant. The front patio of our restaurant and the terrace offer some of the best panoramic views of the Santa Catalina Mountains anywhere.

A brief explanation of overseeding and the impact it has on overall health of the golf course:
Overseeding is taking a cool season grass, such as ryegrass, and seeding it into the existing warm season grass, bermudagrass. This practice enables the fairways, tees and greens to remain green during the winter when the bermuda grass goes dormant, or turns brown. The problem is the competition between the two types of grasses creates poor playing conditions every June which requires a lot of time and energy to repair each summer.
Our solution to prevent these poor conditions is to not overseed fairway segments from time to time.
GOLF COURSE RECONSTRUCTION 2020 INFO
We are excited to officially announce that The Views Golf Club will be doing a major green reconstruction project starting the spring of 2020.
The schedule for reconstruction of the golf course greens, practice putting green, and short-game area will start on April 27, 2020. The golf course will be open during construction and played as a par 68 starting on hole #10 — the maximum distance of approximately 5,500 yards. We are currently preparing the temporary greens to provide the best quality, putting surface as possible.
Our existing TifDwarf greens will be replaced with Tifeagle greens. The green complexes will be cored out 18” below the surface. The green surrounds will be sodded, and the green surfaces sprigged.
All new grass areas will NOT be overseeded for the winter. A minimum of a year is required to establish the new sod before winter rye-grass could be seeded into the Bermuda grass, or it will be severely damaged the following season. There is a strong possibility we will not overseed the fairways as well. However, the tees will be overseeded. It would allow us to reopen in mid-September and not to close the golf course for three weeks for overseeding or have golf cart restrictions in the fall. We will have more information about this operational decision in the future.
The greens project is essential to the long-term success of our community and golf course. We will be adding special added value promotions during this time to play The Views Golf Club. We want to thank you for your continued support during the construction period.
