Tucson golf course bought by local homeowners association for $1.5M

The Sabino Springs Homeowners Association bought the Arizona National Golf Course for $1.5 million.

A local homeowners association on the city’s northeast side has purchased its development’s golf course.

The Sabino Springs Homeowners Association voted to buy the Arizona National Golf Club that is the centerpiece of its 516-home community near Snyder and Harrison roads.

The Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course was bought from Romspen Arizona National LLC for $1.5 million.

“We are thrilled to have the Sabino Springs community on board and directing us into the future,” says Jeff Brandt, general manager of Arizona National. “With how intimate a connection they already have with our golf course and how much they already care for our surrounding land, it only makes sense our partnership is now official.”

Arizona National opened in 1996 and the homeowners association leased it when previous owners were facing bankruptcy, said Donna Wood, interim community manager at Sabino Springs.

“That bought us time to figure out what to do,” she said. Nearly 75% of homeowners agreed to the purchase.

“It was a way to control the destiny of our property values and this amazing course,” Wood said.

The development was designed with an emphasis on preservation and animal protection and almost half of the 430 acres are undeveloped.

Each homeowner will pay an extra $100 a month for the loan payment. The course is managed by Indigo Golf Partners.

Other recent commercial transactions include:

Mister Car Wash bought 1.38 acres of land at the southwest corner of Rancho Sahuarita Boulevard and Sahuarita Road from Rancho Sahuarita Commercial Ventures LLC, for $1.2 million. Aaron LaPrise and Dave Hammack, with Picor, represented both parties.

The new entertainment space is the latest venture by local brothers Connor and Ian Franulovich, who also own and operate The Breaking Point next door to the selfie museum.

For Star subscribers: An abandoned golf course could soon find new life as a nature preserve, with impressive views of the Catalina Mountains, “phenomenal native vegetation,” petroglyphs, walking trails and wildlife. First, though, community conservationists must raise $1.8 million in two months to buy it.
