Ocotillo Golf Resort

ocotillo-golf-resort1An essential part of the attractiveness of Ocotillo Lakes is one of the Top 50 Golf Resorts as rated by Golf World Magazine 2009.  The lush fairways and greens of the Ocotillo Golf  Resort add to the scenery created by the area lakes that run throughout the Ocotillo Lakes subdivisions.    Ocotillo Golf Resort is a privately owned golf course that is open to the public, but offers Ocotillo residents privileges and benefits not avialable to the public.  The ocotillo-golf-and-waterfrontcombination of waterfront and fairways provides unequaled views and landscapes not found in other parts of the valley.   The course received the Golf Digest Magazine 2008, 4 1/2 stars “Best Places to Play” award.
