Masterfully planned, the Dove Mountain Community is nestled in the Tortolita Mountains. With elevations up to 4,300 feet, it is easy to enjoy spectacular views in every direction. Almost one third of Dove Mountain’s nearly nine square miles is dedicated to open space. Dove Mountain is located just 20 minutes northwest of Tucson. Dove Mountain Boulevard connects directly to I-10 at the Twin Peaks Interchange making access to downtown Tucson, Tucson International Airport and the University of Arizona quick and easy.
In addition to the Arthur Hill designed course in The Highlands at Dove Mountain, the area boasts five championship golf courses. There are two eighteen hole courses at The Gallery and 27 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature golf at The Ritz- Carlton. Think of it, 81 challenging golf holes all within four miles.

|Famous for Saguaro cacti, which are unique to this area, the southern Arizona desert is much more vibrant and alive than people might expect. The summer monsoon seasonal rains, from mid-June to the beginning of September, bring with them exciting lightning shows and brilliantly colored sunsets. The rains from the monsoons nurture lush flowers on native cacti, plants and trees. Mild winters contribute to even more growth and color. Our climate is conducive to year-round outdoor living and activities.|
