Travelogue

Only 15 minutes from downtown Tucson, the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa is the area's largest resort. It feels more remote than it actually is because of its location — tucked against a hillside and surrounded by hundreds of saguaro and mesquite trees. Luxurious amenities are plentiful, as are the colorful views of the Sonoran desert and Starr Pass Golf Club, a 27-hole gem with three nine-hole layouts named for wildlife that live in the area: Roadrunner, featuring dramatic elevation changes; Rattler, known for its dynamic challenges and risk-reward opportunities; and Coyote, a slightly removed and hilly routing that ironically is chock-full of coyote prey such as jackrabbits, quail and deer. Add the swirling winds that are prevalent at Starr Pass and you have 27 holes sure to challenge even the straightest shooters in the West.
