What is Unique about Continental Ranch Sunflower?

Not everyone likes the massive active adult communities scattered about Arizona. One of the unique features of Continental Ranch Sunflower is it appeals to residents who desire a less crowded and smaller community. Also with a location very close to I-10 and the city of Tucson it finds itself on the top of many retiree's short list of favorites. Having been developed by Del Webb there is a certain lifestyle you know you can expect. Golfers will find a unique experience making their rounds as a rock quarry envelopes much of the course, providing some interesting sights and golf hazards. 

Life at Continental Ranch Sunflower, Marana Arizona

Continental Ranch Sunflower, a community of Del Webb, is located 15 miles northwest of Tucson in Marana, Arizona. A section of the golf course in this community was constructed from an old rock mine which offers an unparalleled and unforgettable golfing experience. Homeowners enjoy the active lifestyle, proximity to Interstate 10 and Tucson, and intimate setting of Continental Ranch Sunflower.

Continental Ranch Sunflower offers the perfect mixture of a full-size retirement community for active adults and retirees and its excellent location close to downtown Tucson. Unlike a number of the larger communities by Del Webb in Arizona, this 55+ active lifestyle community was designed for a mature audience who desire an active way of life in a smaller environment.

Well located on the western part of Interstate 10, Continental Ranch Sunflower residents can reach the center of downtown Tucson and its nearby popular attractions in just 20 minutes. In addition, Phoenix can be accessed in less than 2 hours.

An activities director is available to provide homeowners with an array of exciting activities, social events and classes. Irrespective of the interest, residents will most probably find other groups or individuals within Continental Ranch Sunflower who share the same passion as theirs. 

The master-planned community of Continental Ranch consists of other family-friendly communities, but only homeowners of the age-restricted community of Sunflower, which has 967 residences, are permitted entry to the community’s exclusive recreation center and gym. The recreation center serves as the heart for all social activities in Continental Ranch Sunflower. It features a number of amenities, such as a gym, aerobics studio, billiard tables, crafts and hobby rooms, and a library. Outside the recreation center, homeowners enjoy a swimming pool, a putting green, biking and walking trails, bocce ball courts, tennis courts, and horseshoe pits.

Golf lovers can experience a golf game like no other at the only rock mine golf course in Arizona. In 2002, after the rock mine next to the golf course in Continental Ranch was abandoned, the owner of the golf course and the municipality of Marana agreed on a proposal to salvage the mine. Out of the 18 holes, 10 were transferred into the mine, while the remaining holes were reconstructed. Currently, the golf course is adorned with hundreds of new trees, spectacular elevation modifications and distinctive desert setting.

For those who are not fond of golf, the mountains that surround Tucson offer the ideal location for camping, hiking, mountain biking, and skiing. Tucson Mountain County Park is just 16 miles south from the community and offers 4,600-foot peaks perfect for serene picnics and brief hikes. Additionally, the Coronado National Forest, which is spread across 1.78 million acres, is abundant with recreational options and only 14 miles east of Continental Ranch Sunflower.
