Tubac Golf Resort - Anza Nine

Tubac, AZ

Texas Outside's Review

Texas Outside Rating - 8.8

Named after Juan Bautista De Anza, the Anza Nine at the Tubac Golf Resort starts with five brand-new holes then finishes with what were formally our 10th, 11th & 18th.

Anza is different than the other two nines and it has a desert links look and feel on the first five holes and concludes with four outstanding finishing holes.

Patrons of the adjacent Stables Restaurant can often be seen watching players navigate the tricky par-3 ninth hole with its island green, which is reminiscent of the 17th at TPC Sawgrass.

Tubac Golf Resort - Otero Nine

Tubac, AZ

Texas Outside's Review

Texas Outside Rating - 8.3

Tubac’s original front nine, named after the Otero family who established the Otero Ranch in 1789, is classic with beautiful bentgrass greens hop scotched among stately cottonwoods and mesquite groves. The Otero nine at Tubac is the tighter of the three nines, lush from tee to green, and has the smallest greens.

There are some fun holes like number 9 that was shortened some 100 yards to a short par 4 and the challenge is to avoid a huge lake that runs down most of the left side and in front of the green.

Tubac Golf Resort - Rancho Nine

Tubac, AZ

Texas Outside's Review

Texas Outside Rating - 9.2

Named for the owners of Tubac’s golf club in Cave Creek, the Rancho Nine includes the fourth "Tin Cup" hole featured in Kevin Costner's film. The course is also home to the infamous "Tubac Triangle," a perilous three-hole stretch that will put even the most talented players to the test.

Aptly named "Train Wreck," the 651 yard eighth hole can test the mettle of the most accomplished professionals. Any golfer whose ball lands on a cow pie on the starting hole may refer to the local rule printed on the scorecard stating, "Ball landing on cow pie: pick, lick, and place no closer to the hole!"
