Within the Santa Cruz River Valley, set amidst the Tumacacori and Santa Rita Mountains is the Tubac Golf Resort and Spa. A member of Historic Hotels of America, Tubac is housed on 500 acres of the Otero Ranch. In 1789, the King of Spain gave this land to Don Toribio de Otero, who began a ranch and dedicated the land to supplying food and weaponry to soldiers. Throughout generations, Otero Ranch became the largest cattle empire in Arizona, and the ranch remained in the family until 1941. But, it wasn’t until 1959 when the ranch became Tubac. Today, the resort’s Spanish architecture and Southwestern warmth hold the integrity of the original Otero name while providing guests with a historical and hospitable getaway. Tubac Golf Resort and Spa’s history resonates within modern accommodations and amenities. You’ll feel comfortable in one of four lodging options: Hacienda King Suites, Casita Suites, Posada Rooms, or the original Otero House.
