Pines at Marana - Arizona's Only Quarry Golf Course

Given the stunning landscape and unforgettable vistas of Arizona’s golf courses, it takes a special course to stand out from the crowd and embed itself into the lasting memory of all who play it. One trip to The Pines Golf Club at Marana, and you will see this is just such a course.

Taking unique to a whole new level, the back nine at Pines at Marana actually runs deep down into an old abandoned sand and gravel quarry, providing a golf experience unlike any other in the Arizona desert.

Located just northwest of Tucson off I-10, The Pines at Marana is taking its place, in the words of the design team of Gilmore/Graves, as “one of the most prominent and unique courses in Arizona, known as a joy and an adventure to play.” 

When you play the Pines, you’ll also join in one of the most active golf communities in Tucson. The management team of Kitson and Partners, an environmentallyrespected Florida group, is committed to growing the game through its junior golf programs and their special deals for frequent players looking such as the $99 Gold Card that offers two free rounds and nine more rounds for only $40 each.

Whatever kind of deal you score; the Pines at Marana is a golf adventure over a links-style front nine on top of the quarry with stunning views of the surrounding mountains that drops down into the pineframed quarry for the back nine.

A fun test of shot-making with plenty of risk-reward opportunities, length is not a prerequisite at The Pines at Marana, which measures just over 6,500 yards from the tips for its par-71 layout. But you’ll likely hit most of the clubs in your bag on the front side alone, and likely all of them before you’re through with the quarry holes as well. And the shifting breezes make the course play differently every time you visit.

With a full practice facility featuring a driving range, separate short-game area, chipping green with two bunkers and putting greens, The Pines at Marana is also a great place to work on your game before testing it.
