I am gong to take a moment to gloat. It is 85 degrees today in Scottsdale AZ. Actually, it is 80 degrees almost every day in the greater Phoenix AZ area. And, it is March 2.
There is a lot for resident and visitors to do. You can hike, bike, camp, play tennis, fish, and eat at sidewalk cafe’s just to name a few.
However, when it comes to the Valley of the sun (Phoenix AZ), there is really only one thing to do; and, that is play golf.
Scottsdale AZ is widely considered the golf capital of the United States and many (Americans) would argue the golf capital of the world.
350 days of sunshine and beautiful weather make year-round golf possible as some retirees play every day, literally on the, more than 400 golf courses throughout greater Phoenix AZ.
If have a friend who is a member, here are world famous private courses such as Troon, Silverleaf, Ancala and Desert Mountain. However, what makes Scottsdale AZ golf so unique is the seemingly endless number of world class public courses available to any golfer, no matter the handicap or even wallet size.
I am an avid golfer. Meaning, I play for love of the game, and not scoring, as I struggle happily (and frustratingly) to break 90 most of the time. However, the scenic beauty and no cell phones make each day memorable no matter my driver and putter are working.
Here are my top Scottsdale AZ public golf courses.
TPC Scottsdale AZ Golf Course -
The Phoenician Golf Club -
GrayHawk Golf Course -
Troon North golf course -
The Westin Kierland Golf Course -
These are some of the best golf courses in Phoenix AZ and Scottsdale AZ. There are many many more.
In fact, if you ask 10 people, you would likely get 10 different lists of top 5 gold courses.
Most of golf courses and resorts have golf-packages with hotel rooms , spa , pool, panoramic views and other amenities. Golf vacation packages are available for all price ranges.
I recommend you take a look at AZgolfguides.com as a resource and insider’s guide to Arizona courses.
Have fun and hit’em straight.
