Arizona Golf Vacations

Canoa Ranch Golf Club

Canoa Ranch Golf Club is located in Green Valley, AZ just 35 minutes south of the Tucson area. This par 70 desert golf layout offers multiple elevation changes that wind into canyons and snake through vast desert terrain. Views of the surrounding mountain ranges may be seen from any angle of the golf course. The fairways are forgiving; however, there are many desert carries from the tee box along with miles of open desert that line the fairways. Greens appear large; however, often times are elevated and surrounded by bunkers. Most of the year, Canoa Ranch Golf Club plays for under $100 making it one of the best Tucson golf courses to play under $100.

Scenic Fact: Hole # 15 on this Arizona golf course will make you feel like you are in the “Old West,” featuring a vintage windmill on an elevated island green. Amazing views of the Santa Rita Mountains are viewable from this location.

  1. As great grandson to Levi Manning, I should come on down and see what you have done with the old man’s ranch. I have many a fond memory of the ranch when there was nothing out there but the Canoa. The ranch house and the lake were such fun. We would come in from the city and my grandfather Howell sr. would load us up with produce grown on the ranch. I understand the goast of Levi still hangs out in the old Manning House in Tucson, what’s become of that property?
    Best of Luck,

  2. Hi Megan,I came across your work today and I love your wriintg. I immediately felt drawn to your words because I’m from Tucson, but have been living in California (Southern and Northern) since 2000. But I go back all of the time. You really capture the quiet soul of Tucson. I also really like your work because my education and career are in the Sciences with a focus on Climate Change and Sustainability. That is how I originally saw your wriintg, one of your pieces came up in a Google alert I have. Take care!
