By Brian Weis
Whether you have played a course 20+ times a year or looking to play the course for the first time, insights from an insider can help enhance your golf experience. Below is an interview with Jeff Beier who shares some valuable tidbits about the course, memorable holes and must eats and treats at the 19th.
Give Our Readers An Overview of the Golf Course/Property
The Gallery Golf Club features two highly acclaimed courses offering members the finest in desert golf. Keeping your focus is a challenge on the picturesque North Golf Course with sweeping views of the high Sonoran desert landscape. Subtle elevation changes and views in all directions among thousands of giant saguaros provide members with an all-together different experience on the South Golf Course. The exceptionally maintained courses are set in a lush and natural desert environment and highly enjoyable for all skill levels.
What Tips or Local Knowledge Would You Provide To Help Them Score Better At Your Course?
We are built into Dove Mountain so there is a natural 'lay of the land' where everything breaks just West of Tucson. But don't over read the greens!
What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
Hole 9, North Course, 700 yards.
Finishes looking at the clubhouse and the a beautiful view of West Tucson.
The only person to reach the green in two was John Daly.
What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
I prefer the 8th hole on our North Course. It forces the golfer to hit a long iron or hybrid off of the tee. The landing area is landscaped with a large waterfall, built right into the mountain. The wedge shot from there isn't any easier as the green is two-tiered and is very demanding. A great short, beautiful hole.
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
Onion rings and a Margarita are a must!
Who Holds Course Record and What Was Their Score?
Joe Durant shot a 61
Tucson Open Pro-AM

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
