San Ignacio Golf Club is a 6,704-yard, par-71 Arthur Hills-designed course that is located just 20 minutes south of Tucson, Arizona, in Green Valley. It sits nestled between the Santa Rita and Tumacacoris mountain ranges at 3,000 feet elevation, providing for a spectacular and challenging desert-golf destination. The course's beauty is further enhanced by Santa Catalina and Rincon mountains, which rise in the distance, giving players even more breathtaking views as they make their way around the tranquil tract of holes.
When Arthur Hills sculpted the course into the area's natural canyons, he was able to utilize the existing topography and create dramatic elevation changes throughout the layout. Each fairway is defined by the natural landscape and abundance of mesquite trees giving each hole a feeling of privacy. As the fairways make their way up to multi-tiered greens, your view will open up to some of the best putting surfaces in southern Arizona. Strategic pin placement on the multi-tiered greens gives players a different experience every time they tee it up at San Ignacio.
Considered by some to be "the best little golf secret in Arizona," San Ignacio offers a number of holes that could easily be designated as "signature" in nature. Included in that group is a stretch of holes from the 12th through the 18th, along with a trio of holes on the front nine, including the 1st, 8th and 9th. But, the 522-yard, par-five 13th hole claims the "signature" honor. The tee box sits high above the water-guarded fairway below, giving you full view of the challenge that lies ahead. This risk-reward hole has all the elements of a fantastic golf hole and keeps our guests coming back time and time again.
