Omni Tucson National Golf Resort & Spa, located in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, has been home to many PGA Tour and NCAA events. Selected as one of Golf Digest’s “75 Best Golf Resorts in North America” this magnificent destination retreat boasts two distinctly different 18-hole courses. The new Sonoran Golf Course is a desert-style course designed by Tom Lehman. Its design called for three bridges to span washes on the course. Course owners contacted The Ashton Company for three prefabricated spans and the necessary approach ramps.

One 90’ x 10’ Connector style Continental truss bridge spans a 20’ wash between the eighth tee and green. It also provides cart access to the ninth tee and from the ninth tee to the fairway. The other two structures, 82’ and 67.5’ in length, are positioned over a wash between the tee on number 10 hole and its green. Two 30’ long approach ramps were needed for these bridges and Contech provided them as well. These truss bridges not only serve the 10th hole, but they also provide cart access to the 11th tee and fairway.

All of the Continental structures are made of weathering steel and include cast-in-place concrete decking that matches the golf cart paths. Concrete was chosen for its durability and aesthetics. The bridges were installed in one day by the experienced team at JCF Bridge & Concrete of Driftwood, Texas.
