Worldmark Rancho Vistoso Resort Tucson Overview

Giant saguaro cacti flood the Oro Valley like a gathering of worshippers—their green arms stretched out to receive the sun. And yes, it is sun you will find here among the Santa Catalina mountains. Over 350 days a year it bakes the Worldmark Rancho Vistoso Resort Tucson into warm, desert tones.

Snowbirds flock to the area for this reason. But there’s so much more to nearby Tucson and the Sonoran Desert. No trip would be complete without visits to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the Mission San Xavier del Bac and Pima Air and Space Museum. And, with a hike into Catalina State Park, your conception of the word “desert” will be altered. The area is surprisingly lush and green. Rancho Vistoso also puts you within easy reach of Nogales, Mexico, for festive day trips devoted to shopping and exploring.

The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club at Dove Mountain in Marana is less than 10 miles west of Worldmark Rancho Vistoso Resort Tucson.  Immerse yourself in a week of golf–it’s a 15-minute drive to the Accenture Match Play tournament (scheduled for February 21 to February 27, 2011).  Then, play a few rounds on Vistoso’s course, which is right around the corner from the resort.  Designed by Tom Weiskopf, this par-72 course offers yardage ranges from 6,932 for championships, to 5,165 for ladies and juniors. With every hole a “postcard,” this true desert golf experience is challenging yet playable.  Voted “Best Course in Tucson” by Golf Digest in 1999 and the “Number three public course in Arizona,” the Golf Club at Vistoso has acquired a reputation for creating the perfect golf experience by providing the highest level of quality service and maintaining an immaculate facility that exceeds the player’s expectations.
