The San Marcos Golf Course first opened in 1913 and was seeded with Bermuda grass the following year, making it the first green grass golf course in Arizona. In stark contrast to most traditional desert target golf courses, the par-72, 6661-yard parkland style course features lush tree-lined fairways, manicured greens, sparkling water features and an abundance of indigenous flora and fauna.
The San Marcos Golf Course underwent a multi-million dollar renovation in 2014 and included a state-of-the-art irrigation system that produces year-round premium playing conditions. The result being a strategically-diverse and visually stunning layout that makes for an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all playing abilities.
Complementing the golf course renovations, is the club's spectacular clubhouse facility, which was completely re-designed to preserve its historic elegance and charm. Original Terrazzo floors adorn the 5,000 square foot space, while high vaulted wooden ceilings accentuate the unique architecture and history of the golf course. Clubhouse facilities include a world-class golf shop, convivial bar and grill, and a variety of outdoor lounge spaces that allow guests to take in the scenic greens.
Over the decades Presidents, dignitaries and famous celebrities have enjoyed the lush setting and challenging design that this historical golf course provides. You will truly appreciate the history and nostalgia of yesterday, combined with the modern services, amenities and quality playing conditions of today!
