SCOTTSDALE IS SUN, FUN & GREAT DESERT GOLF

The U.S.A.'s best winter golf destination? Thousands of golfers every year think so...

With close to 200 courses in the area and great golf weather with no rain throughout most of the year, the Phoenix/Scottsdale area is one of the most popular golf destinations in the world. The peak season is winter and spring since temperatures are cooler, but summer and fall are the best times to find deals.

While there are golf courses for every price point, the area is loaded with high quality courses and resorts. One of the best is Troon North, with a pair of outstanding Jay Morrish-Tom Weiskopf courses tied into the Four Seasons Scottsdale. Scottsdale's other resorts include the 36-hole Boulders Resort (with the outstanding Golden Door Spa), The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess (paired with the TPC Scottsdale), The Phoenician, Talking Stick, The Westin Kierland Resort, and the JW Marriott Camelback Resort.

As for stand-alone golf, the lengthy list is highlighted by Quintero, Grayhawk, We-Ko-Pa, Southern Dunes and Verrado. But that still leaves scores of golf courses to discover as you play your way across the desert!

THE AREA

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA

Scottsdale is a destination filled with golf, art, food, outdoor adventures, and yes, even a very cool vibe. Scottsdale's food and wine scene is booming, with lots of great independent restaurants and even a wine trail to explore.

If you're craving an escape into the unique Sonoran Desert environment, head about 20 minutes outside of Scottsdale to the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Here, 5 major trailheads connect to more than 200 miles of desert trails. If you're into architecture, then you absolutely need to visit Taliesin West, about 25 minutes north of Scottsdale. This was architect Frank Lloyd Wright's winter home and school for more than 20 years, from 1937 until his death in 1959.

Many think that hotel options consist of either fancy resorts or boring chain hotels (basically, what's true in many US cities!). But Scottsdale has a hotel option for every type of traveler, whether you prefer an upscale desert oasis, a cozy boutique experience, or something in between.

THE WEATHER

DID YOU KNOW

SUMMER GOLF IN SCOTTSDALE

Playing golf during the summer when temperatures reach triple digits might seem insane to most people, but it makes perfect sense for golfers on a budget who want to play some of the country's best courses.

During the summers in Scottsdale you can usually play most of the best courses for less than half of what it normally costs during the winter months. Sometimes much less than half! When the snowbirds have returned home and vacationers aren't exactly flocking to the Valley of the Sun, you'll experience the best values in the country. Golf courses are less crowded, which is great for pace of play, and tee times are easily found.

The downside, of course, is the heat. But if you play in the morning, you can beat it and have the rest of the day to do other stuff, like swimming, tubing or hanging out in the air conditioning. And since there's no Daylight Saving Time in Arizona, tee times begin as early as 6 a.m. at many courses, which means you can be finished by 10 a.m., well before it hits 100 on the thermometer. You'll also get firm and fast playing conditions, which means you'll get more out of your driver.
