The Omni Tucson National Resort offers two championship courses that offer two distinctly different rounds. The Catalina Course, the resort's original course, offers a more traditional parkland layout while the Sonoran Course offers a challenging game of true desert golf. Although Catalina is the more famous of the two for hosting a number of PGA Tour events over the years, the Sonoran is just as formidable a test despite being 600 yards shorter than its sister course. Sonoran features a tricky, undulating terrain that is covered with 69 large, strategically placed bunkers. Two lakes come into play throughout the golf course as well. In addition to a number of challenging holes, the layout offers interesting risk-reward opportunities including drivable par 4s. One of the most notable holes is the 15th, a dramatic par 5 that requires a blind approach uphill to a bunkered green.

Prepare to be challenged!

Elevation changes, breezes, fast and tricky greens, plus plenty of bunkers will challenge most every golfer. Don’t play the back tees just because the first hole is short! I’ll watch you tee off from my condo behind the 5th tee.

Course very beat up!

Large patches of bare dirt on many of the fairways. Greens extremely mottled, soft as a sponge. Also many greens had very rough patches which made putting impossible. The ball actually hopped a lot over the rough patches. We finally instituted a two putt rule. This course is not worth the money.

Amazing!!!

I couldn’t speak more highly of Catalina. Totally different from Sonora course. More traditional layout. Greens are excellent. Fairways are in good condition. Top notch track. And for $100 bucks I’d take it. If you stay at the resort they knock it down to 80 which is great. The restaurants and on course amenities are amazing. Will definitely be back.
