With lush Sonoran desert stretching out on every side, the 7,042-yard, Cochise course demands a thoughtful and strategic approach. This challenging course has hosted the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, the season-ending event of the TOUR Champions, from 2012-2016. The course is also the former site of The Tradition, a major TOUR Champions event that the Golden Bear won four times on Cochise.
Its signature holes are four of the finest “risk/reward” par fives to be found anywhere. With rolling fairways surrounded by water and dramatic rock outcroppings, this magnificent layout is a true test of your skill. Approach shots require precision shot-making and contoured greens require a golfer’s deftest touch. The hallmark of the course is the par-3 seventh hole and par-5 fifteenth hole. The double green for these two holes sits on a picturesque island approached from two different directions. Jack Nicklaus has called Cochise “one of the most picturesque golf courses in the world.”
