2018 ORGANIZING COMMITTEE
Located on over 500 acres in the shadows of the magnificent Pusch Ridge in Tucson, Arizona, the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf & Tennis Resort offers some of the most pristine desert and mountain vistas in the Southwest. Nestled at the base of the breathtaking Santa Catalina mountains and surrounded by acres of high Sonoran Desert terrain, the resort offers an opportunity for guests to experience world-class resort amenities in a truly spectacular setting.
Tucson is surrounded by five mountain ranges and our resort rests in the shadow of the Santa Catalina Mountains under the warm southwestern sun. What makes the city so special is that despite being a growing metropolis, it still retains its friendly, typically Arizonan, western charm. Discover 19th century architecture or visit local Tucson attractions like Tohono Chul Park, Catalina State Park or Biosphere 2. Delve into the wonder of the natural world at Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, enjoy a narrated tram ride through the Sabino Canyon or hike one of the many trails at Saguaro National Park.
If you ever had to make a blind bet on the day’s weather in Tucson, bet “sunny” and you would be right 96% of the time. In February it’s a high of 69 Fahrenheit and a low of 40 but more than sunny days Tucson is known for amazing sunsets.
