TUCSON, ARIZ. January 12, 2017 -- An unprecedented golf exclusive has been announced for overnight guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, allowing for non-member play at the prestigious Gallery Golf Club. The private, 36-hole Gallery adds to 27 award-winning holes already offered by the adjoining Golf Club at Dove Mountain, and it contributes to a combined new total of 63 holes of World Match Play Championship golf terrain available only to guests of the Forbes Five Star Ritz-Carlton.
Designed by John Fought and British Open Champion/2006 Ryder Cup captain Tom Lehman, The Gallery Golf Club features 36 holes and is known for its acclaimed hosting of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in 2007 and 2008 (one of which events was won by Tiger Woods), prior to the event moving to The Golf Club at Dove Mountain for six years.
Nestled against Arizona’s spectacular Tortolita Mountain range, The Gallery encompasses two courses. Its picturesque North Golf Course provides sweeping views of the high Sonoran desert landscape, along with subtle elevation changes and views in all directions among thousands of giant saguaro cacti. This 18-hole course has been ranked #1 in southwest Arizona by Golf Digest and is acknowledged as one of Golfweek’s Top 100 Modern Courses. The Gallery's heralded South Course has also been nominated as one of Golf Digest’s 100 Best and presents a coveted links style reminiscent of Donald Ross’ Pinehurst #2.
Exclusive Ritz-Carlton guest access to The Gallery may now be requested by registered guests of the resort and is priced at $225+ USD per person, per round. Existing play also remains available at the neighboring, 27-hole Jack Nicklaus signature Golf Club at Dove Mountain as well. Both Dove Mountain-area golf clubs provide full-service golf, professional golf instruction, junior programs, luxury clubhouse facilities, and popular restaurant and bar offerings.
