The Starr Pass legend began over 120 years ago when Richard Starr crafted a trail through the rugged wilderness of the Tucson Mountains. Today, the Coyote fairway marks this trail and has earned the honor of being the signature hole at Starr Pass. Golf legends such as Arnold Palmer, Phil Mickelson, Payne Stewart and Nancy Lopez, to name a few, have all carved their way through this historic golf course. All of the hazards at Starr Pass are completely natural elements of the desert.
Since its opening in 1986, Starr Pass has established itself as the premier desert golf course in Arizona. Today the legend continues as Arnold Palmer has just completed a redesign of the original 18-hole course and added a new 9 holes making Starr Pass a 27 hole Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Facility. Come play the new nines - Coyote, Roadrunner & Rattler.
The views from the course are simply dramatic as the course winds through valleys and arroyos and meanders among the bluffs of the Tucson Mountains. Choose to focus on the dramatic view of Tucson below, the spectacular panoramic view of the Tucson's several mountain ranges, or the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert landscape. While playing you'll also notice that strict attention was paid to maintain the existing topography as natural hazards so that the finished product is the Southwest's most inviting desert golf experience.
