Default Tuscon, Arizona | Probable Move

It looks as I may move to Tuscon. My girlfrind just recieved an offer letter for a position at The University of Arizona. Already scoping out the north side near Marana Rock(Continental Ranch). Any other thoughts on homes to rent near Tuscon Disc Golf? We both play and would really like to live near a course.

Thanks,
Kade

Kade,

You DO NOT want to live by Santa Cruz River Park - although it would be close to the college and cheaper.

If you go about 5 miles west of the SCRP course - the homes get MUCH pricier and the neighborhoods better (mainly because you are in the Tucson mountains).

Near Marana Rock is all nice neighborhoods and still close to the highway - and not too pricey.

By the Groves Park Course is older neighborhoods and air base type homes - with some decent and some sketchy areas, depending on which side of the base you are on.

Have fun in the "dry heat" and if you are still there in 4 years or so, I might see you around.

Default Marana rock

From what I hear Marana course was flooded during a monsoon a couple of weeks ago and suffered extreme damage and has been closed indefinitely. Heading down to Santa Cruz Park at about 730am. Tucson is a great place overall for outdoor rec in general just buy stock in sun screen... Good luck with the move.

Do Tucson a favor and install a course at Mt Lemmon! It needs it.

Lived there for almost 6 years until moving here in DEC 2005.

Still be living there if people back east weren't passing away.

Monsoon damage can be bad, but that area has had them before and bounced back - that's how the course ended up there in the first place - can't put anything in there that won't get washed away once or twice every few years - but 2 days later - you would never know it was flooded or even had rained.

Mount Lemmon won't (or at least would not between 2001 and 2005 when I left) allow a permanent course there - but the club has run an Event there every year for the past 10 years or so using temp baskets as long as the fire danger didn't have the mountain closed.

This happens nearly every year. Once the water dries up the levy will probably be repaired and the course will be rocking again.

BTW, I'm pretty sure they don't close the course. There are some holes that are unplayable, but the locals still play the holes on the perimeter of the basin.
