Arizona vacation deal: Enjoy Tom Fazio golf and four-diamond luxury at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon in Tucson

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Lodge at Ventana Canyon is a luxury four-diamond golf resort with 50 spacious guests suites, 36 holes of Tom Fazio-designed championship golf, and 12 tennis courts surrounded by a 600-acre desert preserve in the foothills of Tucson's Catalina Mountains. All suites range from 800 to 1500 square feet and capitalize on the incredible mountain views with spacious terraces, full kitchenettes, and in some cases an old fashion footed bathtub.

Established in 1984 and designed by one of the world’s preeminent golf course architects, Tom Fazio, the Mountain Course and Canyon Course at Ventana Canyon offer unique character and natural desert golf experience. Based at the magnificent foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, Ventana Canyon golf courses are surrounded by lush, native Sonoran desert vegetation and spotted with majestic saguaro cacti. While not your typical desert target golf, both the Mountain and Canyon courses can offer exciting challenges for even the most experienced golfer; with changes in elevation and large rolling greens, these award winning courses have a surprising element of judgment for making your club selection.

Dates: Good throughout 2012.

Price range: $129.
