The North Course at the Gallery Golf Club in rests in the shadow of the Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain Resort and Golf Club. Like the Ritz, it is about 20 miles north of Tucson in Marana, Arizona. Like the Ritz, the scenery is spectacular with two hundred year old Saguaro cacti lining the fairway at the foot of the breathtaking Tortolita Mountain range. And like the Ritz, the greens, the fairways, the rough, the sand and every other little detail is spectacular.
Of course a tee time at the Gallery doesn't come without its drawbacks. First and foremost the Gallery is a semi-private club, so they won't allow you on their hallowed ground until after 11 AM and they won't send you out with any of their members. While their staff is still exceedingly polite, you still feel as if you are there as a guest, not as a patron. It's not ideal, but certainly worth your money.
