Square Footage: 31,600

Blending naturally into the majestic saguaro cacti in the panoramic Tortolita Mountain Range north of Tucson, Arizona, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, Dove Mountain's ranch-style clubhouse showcases a contemporary design, augmented with a notable Southwestern flare. Its Sonoran elegance complements the on-site Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, host of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship and one of the best new courses of 2009 as selected by Golfweek and GOLF Magazine.

Tom Hoch worked in concert with Suzanne Urban, director/principal designer at Studio 4 Design; project director, Richard Frazee and Club ownership to design and build the various specialty built-ins, cabinetry and artisan furniture for the clubhouse interior of this spectacular desert creation. Highlights include the design and outfitting of the golf shop, custom bar cabinetry, a state of the art wine room, custom wood lockers, and other custom artisan casework pieces. Materials and finishes were selected with careful consideration of the end product in mind. Men's and women's lockers feature clear western alder faced with brushed nickel hardware. In other areas, black walnut was used in addition to woven leather and naturally weathered granite.
