It’s finally here! The 2021 RC Golf Trip. This year we will be headed to the sun drenched desert and mountains of Southern Arizona and Tucson. We will be playing 27 holes at the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain, 18 at The Gallery Dove Mountain, 18 at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort and 18 at the Marriott Starr Pass Resort. All courses are in the Arizona Desert style of golf, featuring lots of cactus, wash out areas, with plenty of target shots required.
We will be staying at the new AC Marriott Downtown Tucson, located within walking distance of bars, restaurants, and microbreweries. Also included is dinner at the legendary El Charro Mexican Restaurant one evening, dinner at Silver Saddle Cowboy Steakhouse, one lunch and one breakfast. One last bonus, the weekend we are in Tucson is University of Arizona’s Homecoming weekend!
Transportation to and from Tucson Airport will be on your own, as there are a multiple flight options for everyone to choose.

In order to get finished before dark on Wednesday we need to tee off by 11:00 am. Unfortunately, Delta’s first non-stop flight does not arrive until 12:30 pm, making it impossible to fly and play that day. So, we have booked rooms for five nights at the hotel (arriving on Tuesday; departing on Sunday).
