Roadrunner golf course.

Founded 120 years ago when Richard Starr blazed a trail through the Tucson Mountains, Starr Pass is home to our resort, our golf school and our three nine-hole golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer. Coyote's sixth fairway marks Mr. Starr's trail and is distinguished today as the signature hole at Starr Pass Golf Club.

The Starr Pass Golf Club site was personally selected by PGA Tour Commissioner Dean Beaman. When he saw the site for the first time, he was instantly inspired by the natural beauty and rugged terrain. With the help of renowned golf course designer Bob Cupp and PGA Tour professional Craig Stadler, they created a world-class TPC golf facility.

Starr Pass Golf Club hosted the annual Tucson Open between 1987 and 1996. During that time, the third (#3 Rattler) and fifth holes (#5 Rattler) were rated two of the most difficult on the PGA Tour, with the average score for 18 holes ranking among the highest on tour as well.

A true dessert course, natural elements are used as hazards while showcasing majestic vistas of the Catalina Mountains. Legends such as Arnold Palmer, Phil Mickelson, Payne Stewart, and Nancy Lopez have carved their way through this historic golf course.

Phil Mickelson’s PGA Wins at Starr Pass

Phil Mickelson's 1991 victory at Star Pass Golf Club, which would be the first of three in the Tucson Open, resulted in Starr Pass becoming a significant part of golf history. The victory was a springboard into his professional career, as he was still an amateur and student at Arizona State University. Mickelson became the fourth golfer in PGA history to achieve this accomplishment as an amateur.

Coyote Course

Enjoy a very serene and quiet area of the Tucson golf course where you are likely to see wildlife wandering about in their natural habitat. This stretch of holes just might afford you the delightful company of jackrabbits, quail or deer. (3,512 yards)
