This area is abundant with upscale golf resorts and award-winning courses. Locally, the Hilton El Conquistador Country Club, for example, is one of the state’s top resorts. It offers 45 championship holes on three separate courses. Also popular for golfing is Pusch Ridge’s executive course, which is as scenic as it is challenging because the course gains elevation, wrapping itself around the side of Pusch Ridge.
In addition to being a popular site for golf tournaments, the area is also well known for other sporting events, including the Tucson marathon, El Tour de Tucson Bike Race, and the Cactus Speed Classic for inline skating.
Living in Shannon Acres means that residents have a wide range of recreational areas from which to choose. Both the Coronado National Forest and Catalina State Park are close by, and the Oro Valley has an expanding park system. Locally, residents can enjoy Arthur Pack Regional Park’s many great features, which include an 18-hole golf course, ball fields with batting cages, basketball courts, and picnic areas.
