Home Tucson Travel & Leisure Golf at the "Tin Cup" Movie Set

Remember the movie Tin Cup? Did you know that the film starring Kevin Costner was shot in the outskirts of Tucson? The Tubac Golf Resort served as the backdrop for the classic golf flick and now pin seekers can get world-class instruction along with a golf getaway.



The Tubac Golf Resort and Spa recently announced the dates for their annual golf school getaway and it will be held November 1-3, 2010. The resort’s popular three day event has jumped to the top of many golfer’s lists and includes intensive instruction on all aspects of the game.

From nailing the driving game to fairway shots to scoring clubs, the golf school also allows for playing time each day after the instruction. In addition to on-course and range instruction, the instructors utilize video analysis to capture real time information about an individual’s golf swing.

Also built in to the schedule is a final day nine-hole tournament so that participants can put their newly acquired golf knowledge to the test on the course. The appeal of the golf getaway is that it is suitable for golfers of all skill levels. Whether your handicap is 6 or 36, or you have no handicap at all, the friendly and effective instruction from Dennis Palmer and his staff of PGA professionals will provide any player with a solid foundation to improve their game.

Interested parties can sign up for the whole Golf School Getaway package which includes three nights in a deluxe Hacienda Suite, opening and closing night dinners, all breakfasts and lunches and all golf school and associated fees. There is also a commuter option for players desiring to take part in the instruction and events without staying on the property.

The 27-hole course at the resort is unique to the Tucson area with shady tree-lined fairways and acres of grass from tee to green. This is truly a world class golf getaway in a verdant paradise.
