Join TVG one last time for a special Father’s Day Tournament

While Turquoise Valley Golf is heartbroken to announce the closure of the historic course, we want to invite everyone for one last day on the links. The Last Play | Father’s Day Tournament will be held on Sunday, June 16 starting at 7:00 am, with a limited 60 slots available. More information and registration can be found at www.GolfBisbee.com.

The event will give loyal golfers in the Naco, Bisbee and Sierra Vista area as well as other friends of TVG and its staff a chance to celebrate Father’s Day in the Southern Arizona sunshine and say good-bye. Grab one more chance to take on The Rattler – the infamous Par 6, 747-ft.15th hole and then raise a beer at the 19th hole.

Tickets for the event are $100 and are expected to sell out quickly. There are three ticket selections that each include 20 tickets each. Group 1 is for a tee-time between 7:00am and 8:00am. Group 2 is between 8:00am and 9:00am, and Group 3 is between 9:00am and 10:00am. Tickets must be purchased online and there are no day-of-event sales.

For details about the decision, the following press release was distributed earlier this week regarding the closure:

Due to required and financially insurmountable infrastructure repairs Turquoise Valley Golf shut down operations today. Coming only weeks after Joseph Lewis (one of the course owners) unveiled plans for a potential redevelopment project was quoted as saying, “Given the legacy of this course our hearts are broken to be making this announcement.” The TVG redevelopment plans, which were to include nine of the existing holes along with an amphitheater and other public amenities have been placed on indefinite hold.

Bisbee Ventures One, LLC follows a long list of TVG owners that have invested considerable amounts of money into the course only to see revenue dwindle and losses grow. It is estimated that 200 golf courses throughout the United States close every year.  

The closure of TVG will result in the layoff of 14 workers. Lewis said, “These are hardworking, dedicated and loyal employees whom I very much hope quickly find employment elsewhere.”  
TVG members will be reimbursed for their unused prorated portion of their memberships. They can also reach out to the TVG voicemail (520) 432-3091 to coordinate the return of golf clubs, personal carts etc.
