The Views Golf Club Course

The course at The Views Golf Club is sprawling championship golf course with a scenic mountain backdrop. The 18 holes at this course were inspired by the desert land that can be found in and around Tucson. The course itself has a par of 72 and is situated on more than 6,700 yards of land. No matter your current skill level, you’ll be able to have a fantastic time at the golf course because of the inclusion of around ten tee placements.

While there are many trees and several water hazards that you’ll need to contend with while playing golf at this course, the fairways are wide and spacious, which ensures that you have a high chance of hitting the ball into the fairways and posting a low score (hopefully). The pin placements for each green are changed occasionally to make sure that regular visitors to the club are provided with unique and memorable experiences each time they visit.

People who play at this course love how beautiful it is and how amazing the course conditions always are. Even if you visit during the off-season, you’ll likely find that the course is in pristine condition. Keep in mind that the greens are generally kept slow, which means that you’ll need to put more power into your shot if you want to get the ball in the hole in just one swing. While many of the holes on this course are comprised of at least one green-side bunker, these sand traps are usually lengthy and not too deep, which should allow for a somewhat straightforward recovery shot.

If you play golf on a regular basis and enjoy competing with other skilled golfers, the course is challenging enough to warrant thinking about shot direction with each swing you take. You should also know that proper golf attire is required when you’re out on the course or practice areas. For instance, men are required to wear a collared shirt. While actual golf shoes that have soft spikes on them are recommended, you can wear any type of non-spiked athletic shoe if you would like to.
