"Hit it straight" or else, pardner, on this "fun desert course" in the "Old Pueblo", where your ball giddyaps down a "historic stagecoach pass on the 15th hole" and "some of the greatest par 5's around" lie in ambush; to make it out alive, "you have to concentrate on the challenge" rather that "the drop-dead gorgeous valley views" at the "former TPC" and Tucson Open stop that's "not as crowded" as the more amenity-heavy rounds in town.

Profile: Starr Pass is one of the premier desert golf courses in the Tucson area. Starr Pass is located on the southwest side of Tucson and is only 15 minutes from the Tucson Airport. The views of the city below and the Santa Catalina Mountains north of the city are a plenty!

This Robert Cupp and Craig Stadler designed golf course winds through valleys and arroyos and meanders among the bluffs of the Tucson Mountains.

During construction strict attention was paid to insure the natural surroundings were disrupted as little as possible, and the finished product is one of the Southwest's most inviting desert golf experiences. When playing in the afternoon, you may see many desert animals.

Starr Pass hosted the PGA Tour's Tucson Open from 1987-1996. In 1996 the third hole was ranked the most difficult hole played on the PGA Tour. As is the case at every course, playing the correct set of tees will allow you to have an enjoyable day on this very scenic golf course.
