Francisco Grande, the legendary Arizona golf resort, is located halfway between Phoenix and Tucson and is just 45 minutes from the Phoenix airport and an hour’s drive from Scottsdale. The Francisco Grande Hotel & Golf Resort offers its guests luxury accommodations in the Tower, superb food, outstanding golf, and excellent value. This traditional 7400-yard Arizona golf course is one of the most historic in the Southwest and is overseeded every winter and has over 1500 mature trees and three lakes in a parkland setting. The Arizona Hotel & Golf Resort has recently undergone an $ 8 million renovation of its hotel rooms and suites, including the golf course and all its dining and meeting facilities. Out of the 101 guest rooms, 64 are in our tower, including spacious suites overlooking our golf course and pool area. Every guest room in the tower is oversized and has a large, inviting balcony with expansive views of the golf course and the mountains in the distance. The resort’s restaurants and watering holes provide a variety of casual and upscale dining and entertainment options.

Enjoying a drink in great company is the best way to relax after a round of golf. But sometimes you’ll find yourself at our clubhouse wishing a friend was here. For those occasions, we’ve got you covered. You can buy a drink for an absentee buddy and we’ll put it right up on our “Drinks Fore Friends” board. The next time they come in, they can redeem the drink. If they’re worthy of the friendship they will slap one on the board for you in return. Heads up: we remove listings from the board after 60 days, but they never expire. Your bartender will find your listing in the “Book of Shame!” Outing Menu.
