Tubac Golf Resort, nestled in the 500-acre Otero Ranch in southern Arizona, is its Historical Landmark Resort and a member of the distinctive Historic Hotels of America and Preferred Hotel Group. Surrounded by majestic mountain ranges, this naturally beautiful setting is conveniently located yet seemingly worlds away. Upon arrival, when guests see the resort’s beautiful white arches, lush manicured lawns and large cottonwood trees, they instantly feel miles away from the hustle of the city. The resort is where “Tin Cup” with Kevin Costner was filmed.
The 27-hole golf resort has all the amenities travelers desire—98 luxurious rooms and suites with fireplaces and Jacuzzi tubs, conference center, a new 5,000-square-foot spa and a full-service salon, steam, sauna and relaxation room, shops on property and nearby, two restaurants, tennis, swimming, hiking, biking, and a 17th-century style chapel for weddings and retreats.
This year, the First Annual Tubac Balloon Festival on November 20 promises to be one of the most exciting events to come to southern Arizona. Specially shaped hot-air balloons, the Bumble Bees and Spiderman,—and other seven-story-tall “gentle giants” will glow like giant light bulbs against the evening sky. Tubac Golf Resort & Spa’s lush fairways and the Sonoran Desert backdrop are absolutely the perfect setting for this evening of excitement and family fun.
A wide variety of food and beverage will be provided by Dos Silos and the Stables Ranch Grill. Guests can enjoy a sit-down gourmet meal or visit one of their concessions for a favorite food or beverage. Local merchants and vendors will be showing off their wares and promoting the community of Tubac. There will truly be something for everyone at the Festival. The evening will be capped off by the world-famous Arizona Skyhawks Parachute Team making a spectacular nighttime sky dive into the event. Special “glow in the dark” suits and flares will add to the visual effect and excitement.
