Club Corp acquires Oro Valley C.C.

ClubCorp has acquired Oro Valley Country Club, a private previously member-owned club located in northwest Tucson at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains. ClubCorp plans a million-dollar reinvention project that will include improvements to the golf course, clubhouse and outdoor patio.

The addition of Oro Valley continues the rapid expansion of ClubCorp’s overall portfolio of owned and operated clubs, which has increased by 35 percent since the company’s IPO in September 2013. ClubCorp’s portfolio of owned and operated clubs now stands at more than 200 clubs in 26 states, the District of Columbia, Mexico and China.

“We are very excited to reinforce our commitment to external growth by adding Oro Valley Country Club – and the Tucson market – to the ClubCorp Network,” said Eric Affeldt, ClubCorp’s president and CEO. “The club features an outstanding desert course that is not only beautiful but very playable. I think our members from throughout the country will enjoy visiting Oro Valley and the beautiful Tucson area.”

ClubCorp clubs in Arizona include Anthem Golf & Country Club and Seville Golf & Country Club, both outside of Phoenix, and Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale.

“Oro Valley members are very enthusiastic about ClubCorp – the value to membership that the ClubCorp Network brings, the company’s commitment to capital improvements and their history of success and leadership in the industry,” said Susan Wright, president of Oro Valley board of directors. 

The site of various high-profile tournaments through the years, including the Ladies Pac-10, Southwest Amateurs and qualifying rounds for the U.S. Open and Arizona Open, the Oro Valley parkland-style 18-hole golf course boasts Bentgrass greens and overseeded Bermuda fairways and roughs during the winter months.

Oro Valley’s 28,000-square-foot clubhouse features a grill, men’s and women’s card room, state-of-the-art fitness center, a 3,200-square-foot ballroom offering views of the mountains and golf course and an additional 6,000 feet of outdoor covered space.



Would love to be able to assist you in your renovation of the course. Please note our website, and thank you for doing so. Gary Roger Baird, ASGCA Fellow Member President & CEO GLOBAL GOLF DESIGN web: email U.S. Mobile: (615) 294-7484
