Three New Leagues to Join and Call for Volunteers
Updated: Nov 12, 2021
We Sold Out in 27 Hours!
We are excited to share that the Oct. 30th Grand Pre-Opening event was sold out 27 hours after we opened registration!! The ‘sold outs’ include the morning and afternoon golf scrambles (104 players in total) and the western BBQ buffet luncheon.
However, we still have a few custom embroidered caps available. Order them at https://www.friendsofpuschridgegolf.org/event-details/order-friends-cap.
Note - caps will be available during the Oct. 30th event only. Sorry we cannot ship them.
This sell out proves that the resurgence for interest in a 9-hole golf course is high. We predict that when the course opens to the public on November 1st it will be a huge success! If you missed out on our Grand Pre-Opening event, not to worry. Join one of our three new casual leagues/groups to get your 9-hole ‘fix!’
Join the New Casual Leagues at Pusch Ridge
The Friends of Pusch Ridge Golf have been busy forming three new informal, casual golf leagues for YOU to enjoy! We now have a men’s, women’s and a mixed (couples/singles) leagues/groups.
Not enough time during the week for a full round? Get your fix of golf in 2 hours or less by playing in a social and fun atmosphere at the beautiful Pusch Ridge 9-hole course. It’s FAST, FUN and AFFORDABLE.
We welcome all golfers -- beginner, intermediate and advanced who want to have fun!
You can play once or as often as you like. There is no charge for registering or joining our leagues. You simply pay for each round when you play.
Register for as many leagues as you’d like and expect to get a weekly email asking your availability to play each week. It’s that simple.
All three leagues start the first week in November. Walkers play for $20/round; riders $25/round for all casual leagues.

Help Spruce up the PR Golf Course Cactus Garden!
From the looks of it, you probably didn’t even recognize the pictured area above near the first tee and cart barn as a raised bed cactus garden!
But the Friends of Pusch Ridge Golf (FOPRG) and the Town of Oro Valley are out to change that!
The Town has offered an assortment of new desert plants and together with the FORPG, is looking for volunteers to help pull weeds, prepare and restore the garden. This is a great opportunity to revitalize the cactus garden ahead of the Oct 30th Friends Pre-Opening Day event and the public reopening on Nov 1st.
