Until this year it was the site of the WGC Match Play Championship. There are 3 nines and we requested the Saguaro and Tortolita courses because they were the ones played in the WGC. It is very scenic and challenging. The staff was gracious and accommodating. A must play if you are in Tucson for golf!

This place is awesome. The staff couldn't be better. Course was in great shape. Green speeds were perfect. Summer prices are extremely affordable if you can take the heat. Can't wait to return.

Played this course on a hot deal from Golf Now for $79 which is about half price. The site of the World Matchplay until it was moved this year. Set amongst the Saguaro cactus at the base of the mountains. Views are amazing. Golf course is beautiful with wide fairways but don't let that fool you. The greens will "kick... More

Dove Mountain is a beautiful desert course. We love it... even if it does beat us up every time we play it - which is only once a year, darn it... since we live in Colorado. My husband is a 15 handicapper and I'm an 18. If you can stay in the fairways, great... if not, it can be unforgiving.... More

not sure what designer Jack Nicklaus was thinking when he did this one . A Ritz Carlton resort course that even the pros said was too tough . Greens are very tricky and unfair . Big carries to get to greens and large deep. Bunkers make it a challenge . The course is in great shape . If you want... More

Dove mountain is a beautiful course with tricky greens. The golf shop was friendly. There was a very attentive cart person who made frequent rounds. You can walk it but the distances between holes is long. One of the best in Arizona.

This course was magnificent. It was not very busy at all, which was nice for us as golfers, but I feel if it wasn't so expensive they might get more players. It was a great day of golf!

Stayed at Ritz-Carlton and played several of the courses in this vast community. Dove Mountain is clearly the best golf course with tremendous holes (9 on saguaro and 9 on Tort) are tremendous finishing holes. Our cart had 4 bottles of water in a cooler - very nice touch. Could have used some additional water spots throughout course though to... More

Played Dove Mountain yesterday, £100, although I accept to has just come out of overseeing the course was in poor condition, we played the championship 18. Tee boxes were awful, too many bad folders being let loose, lots of divits, greens had lots of sand on them. Over 5 hours for 18 holes!!!! Luckly we got our money back for... More

I played the Saguaro and the Tortolita today and what a fantastic back drop to an amazing golf course. The Tortolita was carts on paths due to over seeding. I made the trip down from Scottsdale (roughly 2hrs heading towards Tucson) and was amazed by the quality of the course. This is one course you should make the trip for... More
