Golf Course Information
Horace Stoneham's San Francisco Giants Spring Training Complex also included the vision of building a championship Arizona golf course that would be a classic masterpiece. He commissioned renowned golf course architect, Ralph Plummer to complete this integral piece of the facility.
Plummer is known for the attractiveness of his layouts and for his remarkable ability to shape greens and bunkers by the eye. His portfolio includes Shady Oaks Country Club, home of famed golfer Ben Hogan, The Colonial Country Club in Forth Worth, Texas, and Tryall Golf Club in Jamaica.
Francisco Grande Golf CourseThis par 72 traditional course layout features lush fairways, over 1500 mature trees, well-manicured greens, and three strategically positioned lakes. The desert-framed golf course is the longest in Arizona at 7,545 yards and is adjustable to 5,200 to make it both challenging and fun for all skill levels. In fact, the course is one of the few that overseeds fairways, tees, greens, rough, and public areas that total over 188 acres.
The championship golf course and practice areas were beautifully restored by Scottsdale based, In Celebration of Golf. The Resort provides a perfect setting to hone your skills with our large driving range, chipping greens with bunkers, and undulating putting greens.
Francisco Grande Hotel and Golf Resort is an ideal place to hold golf tournaments, outings, conferences, conventions, and corporate events. Its location is ideal, positioned between Tucson and Phoenix.
