Our location at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon facilitates the Club’s ambitious social calendar, as well as the many other member activities scheduled throughout the year. And what’s more, the entire property is owned by Ventana Canyon Alliance, a local consortium of investors who are homeowners in the Ventana Community as well as members of the country club.

Relaxing in a beautiful desert setting against the majestic backdrop of the santa catalina mountains has never been easier.
Enjoy the wonderful flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert up-close and personal by foot, horse, or Jeep. The Ventana Canyon community and its surrounding area offer some of the best hiking anywhere in the Southwest. Explore the grounds by taking a stroll on the Ventana Parcourse Trail. The more adventurous can hike the Ventana Canyon Trail to the top, where there is a natural rock window for which the area is named. Or hike one of the many trails at Sabino Canyon State Park. There is a trail to suit hikers of all levels.
Maybe you would rather explore the surrounding areas on horseback—a real western option. There are numerous outfitters in the area who will take you into the desert on horseback to view it up-close. To witness areas others rarely see take a Jeep tour. Many of these Jeep tour companies have private agreements with landowners to travel onto lands not accessible by foot. Your guide will give you an in-depth tour, explaining the flora, fauna, and history. This is a great way to learn about the Sonoran Desert.
For the really adventurous, you can get a bird’s eye view of the Sonoran Desert landscape by riding overhead in a hot-air balloon.
