Known as one of the Southwest’s most scenic venues with the magnificent Tortolita Mountains as its backdrop, The Gallery features sweeping vistas of the Sonoran desert as the two 18-hole John Fought-designed courses meander through lush desert landscape and rugged canyons. Voted by Golfweek as one of America’s best residential golf courses, The Gallery has played host to the Tucson Open and was also the home course for the prestigious World Golf Championships Accenture Match Play Championship won by Henrik Stenson in 2007 and Tiger Woods in 2008.

Away from the fairways and greens, Troon Cup participants will enjoy the luxurious accommodations of The Ritz-Carlton nearby. This breathtaking hotel affords guests with an unbelievable experience from a world-class spa to sumptuous dining and the vibrant city of Tucson just 30 minutes away.
