Catalina Course at Omni Tucson National Golf Resort & Spa
The Catalina Course is one of two golf courses at Omni Tucson National Resort. It is more well known than its sister course, the Sonoran, since it is both the original layout and it has been host to over 30 PGA Tour events over the years. The Catalina Course is a traditional parkland layout while the Sonoran offers true desert golf, as its name would imply. The challenging design incorporates eight sparkling lakes and a total of 80 bunkers strategically placed throughout. The 18th is touted as one of the finest and most demanding finishing holes on the PGA Tour. This tricky par 4 leaves little room for error with water along both sides of the fairway, it also requires a blind tee shot to a well-protected, elevated green.

#16 plays fairly steeply uphill. I was 16 inches for a birdie, after hitting a solid 135 club from 109 out. Photo submitted by Jonathan5270953 on 08/14/2013

Great course. Definitely senior pro ready.
Hard on cart path only during this time of year but still great.
Always a good change of pace to play here in the desert. Seems like they’ve let some spots in a few fairways get away from them and go to dirt patches. Some odd water standing areas as well. Hopefully it’s all a result of the overseed process and it’ll be back to the perfection it was in the past. Still a great joint, good team and classic layout
The course is a beautiful course which I recommend to everyone EXCEPT HANDICAP TO PLAYERS. Before playing I told the starter I use a Handicap Flag when I play. I asked questions about the course and he said it should not be a problem and I was given no options. I found out during play that they block anyone from getting closer than roughly 100 yards from the green on every green unless you get on the cart path. This is not what a handicap player should have to do. I am fighting cancer, have a rod on n my leg and a am 72 years old. I struggled greatly to finish. I found out afterwards that they have a way to turn the carts off so that a cart can get close to the green. The starter was a complete jerk for not helping me out in this situation. I am seriously telling anybody that uses a handicap flap to make sure you are treated correctly, as they must not care if someone suffers or died because of this.
I give 0 stars for empathy to handicap players. DONT PLAY AT ALL.
Good course but over priced for summer
Staff was friendly and it included range balls but $70 for summer rates was wAy too much for this course. Many holes were very similar with left to fight slope and lost if bunkers and large green with many undelatuons. Just thought over priced compared to several top courses I played at much less. A bit disappointed fir the price.
Tucson National going down hill
Lots of bare spots on fairways. Greens aerated late and still bouncy. Members r very rude. Won’t go back til I hear back from others. Sad. Was once the pride of NW Tucson
First time playing Tucson National. Challenging but fair course. Was largely in great shape for mid-May, except there were a few wet spots. But the greens were in phenomenal shape. Held well and rolled true.
This is my second time playing Catalina, the first time being shortly before the Cologuard Classic. The course is fun and challenging without being punitive. Even the short par 5s are well protected with water, trees, and doglegs.
Fairways and greens were in good shape. Bunkers need work, lacking sand.
I would and will play it again.
great place to play
Friendly staff from Started and Course Marshall. The Food Cart Rep was friendly as well. Treat yourself to this course.
