Arizona Golf Guide
For a college hoops fan, a trip to Tucson is a pilgrimage. Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas all have richer basketball traditions. But with the exception of Duke, the University of Arizona has been the most successful college basketball program of the past 20 years.
The man responsible for the Wildcat's success -- head basketball coach Lute Olson -- resides just a smooth 3-iron from this swanky boutique lodge tucked into the lush Sonoran desert of Tucson's northeast side. Despite the presence of two nationally ranked Tom Fazio designed resort courses, Olson sightings around here are few and far between these days.

Doesn't matter if the office was on Central Ave. in Phoenix or on Stone Ave. in Tucson.
