Dove Mountain - Over 6,200 acres of foothills, canyon and mountainside living in the Tortolita Mountains, just north of Tucson, Arizona. Dove Mountain is a master-planned golf resort community in a high Sonoran Desert setting and climate that will bring out the best in you, outdoors year round. Dove Mountain is the home of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship. Starting in February 2009, the top 64 players in the world will compete on one of two new Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, Dove Mountain.
Masterfully planned with an emphasis on low-density, Dove Mountain inspires a true sense of community with the utmost respect for the natural habitat and its habitants. Elevations soar from 2,700 to 4,300 feet. Long, spectacular views seem to go on forever in every direction. Almost a third of Dove Mountain's nearly 9 square miles is dedicated to open space. Importantly, the integrity of Dove Mountain's perimeter is forever enhanced, with over 10 miles of boundary against either formal preserves or Arizona State Trust owned mountains.
The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, scheduled to open in the Fall of 2009, is an exciting, new addition to the lifestyle at Dove Mountain. The half-billion-dollar Ritz-Carlton development in northwest Tucson includes a 250-room Ritz-Carlton resort hotel and spa, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club featuring Jack Nicklaus Signature courses, and a Ritz-Carlton branded residential community. Encompassing 850 acres within the Dove Mountain master-planned community, the new Ritz-Carlton project will be the ultimate in luxury vacationing as well as luxury living in the high Sonoran Desert. The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is a casually elegant yet sophisticated resort hotel that will meld into its high Sonoran Desert setting, with amenities and services synonymous with The Ritz-Carlton name and an architectural style authentic to the Arizona southwest. With views of Jack Nicklaus Signature golf set among towering Saguaros, approximately 300 highly customized Ritz-Carlton Residences offer a fluid series of indoor and outdoor spaces to be enjoyed year-round. Twenty custom estate home sites round out the real estate offering, and a 50,000-square-foot clubhouse complex will provide a home base for residents and members. Despite close proximity to both Tucson and Phoenix, it's easy to sense a profound connection to nature with the lush Palo Verdes, majestic Saguaro cactus and the untamed beauty of the Tortolita Mountains embracing the The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain community.
