Experience A Piece Of History - Arizona's FIRST All-Grass Golf Course

Arizona's first all-grass golf courseThe San Marcos Golf Course first opened in 1913
and was seeded with Bermuda grass the following year, making it the FIRST green grass golf course in Arizona.  In stark contrast to most traditional desert target golf courses, the par-72, 6640-yard parkland style San Marcos Golf Course features lush tree-lined fairways, manicured greens, sparkling water features and an abundance of indigenous flora and fauna.

The San Marcos Golf Course boasts a recent multi-million dollar renovation and now includes a brand new state-of-the-art irrigation system that produces year-round premium playing condition, expanded lakes, new tee boxes, reconstructed bunkers with new sand, and green enlargements on a handful of holes. The result is a strategically-diverse and visually stunning layout that makes for an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all playing abilities. 
Complementing the golf course renovations, The Chandler skies and landscape provide a breathtaking backdropis the club’s spectacular clubhouse facility, which was completely re-designed to preserve its historic elegance and charm.  Original Terrazzo floors adorn the 5,000 square foot space, while high vaulted wooden ceilings accentuate the unique architecture and history of the golf course.  Clubhouse facilities include a world-class golf shop, convivial bar and grill, and a variety of outdoor lounge spaces that allow guests to take in the scenic greens.

Over the decades Presidents, dignitaries and famous celebrities have enjoyed the lush setting and challenging design that this historical golf course provides. And now, with the newly completed renovation, you will truly appreciate the history and nostalgia of yesterday, combined with the modern services, amenities and quality playing conditions of today!
