94th Arizona Amateur Championship

Come play in the 94th Arizona Amateur this summer at Tonto Verde Golf Club.  Tonto Verde has two distinctly different and challenging 18-hole championship golf courses, designed by Gary Panks and David Graham. Both courses, the Peaks and the Ranch, are immaculately maintained and are known for being some of the finest greens in the valley. Last year Ken Tanigawa beat Chad Wilcox 1 up to win the 93rd Arizona Amateur at Moon Valley Country Club.
