In between preparing for the Ryder Cup and beating back guys half his age on the PGA Tour, 47-year-old Tom Lehman maintains a thriving golf course design business. His latest piece of handiwork is for the venerable Omni Tucson National Resort & Spa, which has played host to the PGA Tour since 1965.
Named for the desert that dominates southwestern Arizona, the Sonoran Course is the perfect complement to the resort's 60s-era Catalina Course. Part of Lehman's layout was the property's third nine, the Orange course, which was built 23 years ago. He scuttled many of the dull parkland-style holes, reworking the terrain to better conform to the new target-style nine he sculpted from the desert.
Green fees: $70-$180.
