A Tucson Golf Resort

Getting Off the Beaten Path Has Its Rewards

Tucked away in the spectacular desert beauty of Arizona, in the foothills near Tucson, Starr Pass Golf Suites is a Southwest vacation jewel. The endlessly changing vistas of natural beauty surrounding this inviting Tucson golf resort provide the stunning backdrop for a perfect mix of comfort and casual elegance.

At the heart of the resort community is the celebrated Starr Pass Golf Course. Its desert style layout and dramatic terrain challenges golfers of all skill levels. The J. W. Starr Pass Resort and spa added nine additional holes, making it a 27-hole Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Facility. 

But Starr Pass Golf Suites isn't just for golfers. It's also perfect for a family getaway, hiking, or those seeking to enjoy the culture and adventure of the old southwest. A peaceful location along the wildlife corridor adjacent to the 20,000-acre Tucson Mountain Park makes it ideal for those desiring a relaxing escape with a touch of outdoor adventure. Starr Pass is also located only minutes away from the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum. Low light restrictions also make star gazing a particularly rewarding pursuit due to the close proximity of Kitt Peak Observatory.

The magnificent views from your spacious casita include natural desert landscaping drenched in 350 days of sunshine per year. A 75-foot heated Olympic swimming pool, whirlpool and fitness center are just the beginnings of a full array of amenities. In addition to nearby horseback riding, some of the Southwest's most picturesque hiking can be found minutes away at Saguaro National Park and Sabino Canyon. Mexico and The Village of Tubac are also within driving distance, offering some of the most fascinating history and sights of the Southwest.

You may notice the subtle outdoor lighting in the Starr Pass area. The reason is that the city of Tucson provides standards for outdoor lighting so that its use does not unreasonably interfere with astronomical observations. The standards are intended to conserve energy without decreasing safety, utility, security and productivity while enhancing nighttime enjoyment of property within the jurisdiction.
