Welcome to Dove Mountain
This master-planned luxury community is located just north of Tucson and contains more than 50 miles of hiking and biking trails, three uniquely posh golf clubs, and many resort-style amenities, including The Ritz Carlton Dove Mountain
and The Gallery Golf & Sports Club
. Nestled at the base of the Tortolita Mountains, this carefully preserved desert landscape is famous for its breathtaking views and luxe lifestyle.
Constructed with an emphasis on open space and respect for both the natural habitat and its inhabitants, Dove Mountain is a community that inspires exploration. Many residents here hike daily among the saguaros, golf at PGA quality courses, or enjoy tennis & swimming laps at the local sports club. Winter temps are warm during the day and cool at night. Due to its higher elevation, Dove Mountain experiences cooler summer temperatures than Scottsdale and Palm Springs.
Less than 30 minutes away from downtown Tucson, Dove Mountain offers easy access to the city’s best restaurants, entertainment venues, cultural and sporting events at the University of Arizona. Sitting on the Northwest side of the city, the Phoenix metro area is easily accessed in approx. 80 minutes.
