La Paloma has been my favorite vacation course in Tucson for years now. After a tough stretch several years ago, this great track is back to near perfection. It has 27 holes, carved though some interesting landscape, with no 2 holes truly resembling each other. You have to cross large canyons, move through well bunkered areas and take on several elevation changes during a round. The conditions are back to the top level with all greens being rebuilt a few years ago and bunkers getting some love. The Canyon/Ridge combination is the best 18 hole sequence. Hill is the weakest 9, but is by no means a slouch. The multiple sets of tees allow you to pick your level of challenge. Silver and Copper give high handicappers a fair test. Gold will suit handicaps of 7 to 12. Black is for those with caps of 6 or less. The elevation in Tucson gives you a bump of 5% with most yardages. If you are staying at the Westin La Paloma, or have a Troon membership, this course is a 'must play' in the area. No matter what, you have to find a way to play this outstanding course.
