Architect

Robert Trent Jones, Sr.

Tucked away in the Santa Cruz River Valley, Rio Rico Golf & Country Club tumbles across a variety of terrain that ranges from hilly to flat. Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed the course in 1975 and it has since matured into one of southern Arizona's finest layouts. The traditional layout features some of Jones signature elements including greenside bunkers and subtle but challenging contours. The golf course sprawls across a stunning landscape, beginning on a river flood plane and then rolling into the Cayetano hills. Pines, willows, and poplars line the fairways and water hazards come into play on six holes. The first four holes provide a gentle start but the golf course becomes progressively more challenging with a variety of interesting risk-reward opportunities. The fifth through the eighth holes are considered one of the finest four-hole stretches in the state.
