Mickelson hopes to buy Tucson course

Phil Mickelson wants to buy a bankrupt golf property in suburban Tucson, Arizona.

Inside Tucson Business reports that Mickelson and Steve Loy, his business partner/agent, have submitted an offer on Stone Canyon Club, the centerpiece of a private subdivision within the Rancho Vistoso planned community in Oro Valley. Stone Canyon features a 13-year-old golf course that its architect, Jay Morrish, has described as “the best desert course I’ve ever designed.”

Entities affiliated with Mickelson and Loy already own four golf properties in Arizona, among them McDowell Mountain Golf Club in Scottsdale, Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear and The Golf Club at Chaparral Pines in Payson. Earlier this year, they failed in an attempt to acquire FireRock Country Club in Fountain Hills.
