Arizona Golf..the time is now!
When we think of Arizona the first thing that comes to mind is the Grand Canyon right? Well, some of the the best courses in the U.S., and the world too, are all located in the Grand Canyon state. Arizona golf, from the southern desert to the northern flats, is considered some of the most beautiful and well-designed in the world.
Verdant fairways and cool ponds dot the region, providing enchanting contrast to the stark mesas and prickly cactus that define the landscape. With all of this plus clear skies year round, it’s no wonder that avid amateurs and prestigious professional tournaments alike make Arizona their home..perhaps why Phil (Mickelson) has his own grill in Scottsdale.
Now with so many courses to play in Arizona..which one..right? Well, when it comes to golf that makes even the greatest players restless with anticipation, Scottsdale tops the leader board. Scottsdale golf houses over 200 golf courses which have had some folks like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson (duh), Kirk Triplett and Tom Weiskopf – many of whom call Scottsdale home. And not only does Scottsdale serve up gorgeous greens set amidst a stunning Sonoran Desert backdrop, the city also is home to an enviable collection of post-round hotspots that will keep you on par for the 19th hole.
Now, I have to admit Scottsdale is like the Beverly Hills of AZ golf, so if you're on a tighter budget there are still numerous holes to be had. Tucson golf and Phoenix golf also offers a very fine share of fairways and greens that won't break the bank. Either way, if you are looking to get away to some spectacular golf, golfing in Arizona can't be beat any way you look at it.
