The Tucson Country Club was established in 1947 by a small group of people who purchased a 580-acre ranch located in a remote area of Tucson to provide a unique golfing opportunity and social camaraderie on the growing northeast side. It also allowed for the development of the Tucson Country Club Estates. During its more than 60-year history, the Tucson Country Club has provided its members with 18 holes of exquisite championship golf. The noteworthy tournament history of this Club has featured 18 USGA Championship Qualifiers, 8 Arizona Amateurs, 1964 Western Amateur, 1982 USGA Senior Amateur and the 1992 USGA Senior Women’s Amateur. Tucson Country Club has not only hosted outstanding amateur events, but is also home to arguably one of the world’s finest amateur golfers, Dr. Edgar Updegraff.
Today, this equity Club is owned by 425 Regular Members and offers a variety of both golfing and non-golfing member opportunities through its junior golf, tennis, swimming, fitness and children’s programs. The members of Tucson Country Club represent a broad cross section of the Tucson population from young adults and their families, some of Tucson’s most prominent business people to retirees. There is a rich history through these families, many of whom are second and third generation members.
The Club has seen three clubhouse locations, with the present facility opening in June 1987. The clubhouse facility houses dining and banquet (weddings/meetings) areas, a golf shop, locker rooms, a fitness center and much more. Separate structures and amenities include the driving range and practice greens, a tennis facility with 11 courts. Also, the aquatic facility features a 6 lane salt water lap pool, family pool with 97 feet double loop water slide (2 extra lanes for swim lessons and water aerobics), an additional water slide for younger members, plus a splash pad with water hose features. The Lap Pool is heated year round.
The Tucson Country Club offers its members the finest athletic and social facilities/services in the Southwest. Tucson Country Club is a proud and prestigious club that upholds the traditions and goals set forth over 60 years ago with an ongoing look to the future.
