Tucson Rocks

Golf Valentine

We really love golf!

There’s more to Southern Arizona than great golfing. It’s hard to believe, but each year we’re visited by people who don’t golf at all.

While we can’t condone that, we can confidently assert that Arizona has some amazing attractions besides our greens.

Tucson GemSeptember 10 through 13, visit the Tucson Fall Gem Show. The smaller of the city’s two gem shows, the Fall exhibition takes place in three locations throughout Tucson. You’ll have the opportunity to shop rare and precious gems, minerals and jewelry. If you enjoy the smaller show, consider coming back in January, for the full show, which takes over the town.

The Boulders NorthAfter you’ve investigated all that glitters in the Southwest, it’s time for another gem: our golfing. Tucson and Scottsdale Golf Vacations can help you experience the best golfing in Southern Arizona. Book a package in Tucson or Scottsdale for the chance to play three rounds of golf on Arizona’s premier courses. Each package can be customized for your group. Play challenging courses to improve your game, or take it easy on courses that allow you to enjoy the diverse beauty of the Southwest.
