Arizona Golf Guide

Arizona's weather - including some of the best winters in the world - help make it one of the top golf vacation getaways in America. Golf in Arizona, which includes world-known hot spots Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tucson, can provide desert escapes, big city life and five-star luxury golf resorts in the same trip.

Golfers and non-golfers alike know that Scottsdale boasts hip nightclubs, unique shopping and top-rated restaurants, spurred by a recent influx of celebrity chefs at hotels like Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. Scottsdale's golf features some of the top-rated golf courses in the country, including Troon North Golf Club's Monument and Pinnacle, Grayhawk and Boulders. There are also some new additions creating plenty of buzz, including Saguaro Course at We-Ko-Pa and the redesigned Champions Course at TPC Scottsdale.

Phoenix, home to the international Sky Harbor airport that most Scottsdale golfers fly into and only a short drive away, can give you golf in the middle of a cosmopolitan city that has a major convention center and sports teams like the Phoenix Suns and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Arizona Biltmore's Adobe Course is one of the oldest courses in the state. Raven at South Mountain features more than 5,000 pine trees in an anything-but-desert feel. And both, as well as other top Phoenix golf courses like the Nick Faldo-designed Wildfire Golf Club, let you swing within the city limits while still providing a vacation retreat feel.

Only two hours from the Phoenix-Scottsdale resort corridor, Tucson is known for providing even more natural desert golf while being home to some of the best spas - including its world-famous medical and health spas - in the world. You can take on Tom Fazio's design work at Ventana Canyon, Arnold Palmer's at Starr Pass or Jack Nicklaus' at La Paloma. Then, there's time for hikes in natural scenery or just kicking back under the stars.

Arizona Golf Destinations

  • Phoenix

    The sun always seems to shine on the world-class golf destination that is Phoenix, the fifth largest city in the United States with unlimited things to do and the weather to do them in.

    The Legacy features an 18-hole golf course designed by the renowned architect Gary Panks. Lush green fairways, forgiving rough, well placed hazards, and manicured greens offer a challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
    Foothills Golf Club is nestled next to South Mountain, providing the course with a rugged landscape of craggy ridges and buttes. It is the centerpiece of the four Phoenix-area golf courses that are a part of the Foothills Golf Group. The design team of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish dreamed up an imaginative links layout on desert terrain that is highly atypical for links courses.
    The 18-hole Encanto Park Golf Course in Phoenix, Arizona is a public golf course that opened in 1935. Designed by William P. Bell, Encanto Park Golf Course measures 6404 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 114 and a 69.
  • Tucson

    With 350 days of sunshine each year, Arizona's second largest city, Tucson, is especially ideal for visitors who prefer outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, sightseeing, and, of course, golf. Rich with natural and geographical treasures, the name Tucson is derived from the Indian word for "spring at the foot of black mountain," and you'll find that spring is just southwest of downtown.

    Situated between the Catalina and Rincon Mountains, Forty Niner Country Club runs alongside a wooded riverbed. The golf course features fairways lined with mesquites, giant cottonwoods, eucalyptus trees, and weeping willows. Desert shrubbery also lines the fairways. The course has a traditional layout that sprawls across gently rolling terrain.
    Sewailo Golf Club is the centerpiece of the luxurious Casino Del Sol Resort in Tucson. The Pascua Yaqui Tribe developed the course and they wanted to utilize the natural features of the rugged landscape. To design the course, they hired fellow Native American and PGA Tour player Notah Begay III and course architect Ty Butler.
    The 18-hole Crooked Tree Golf Course in Tucson, Arizona is a public golf course that opened in 1977. Designed by Dave Bennett and Lee Trevino, Crooked Tree Golf Course measures 6896 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 130 and a 71.
  • Scottsdale

    Arguably the golf capital of the United States, it's hard to beat the weather and the number of high-quality golf courses in Scottsdale, Ariz. There are more than 200 courses cut out of the rocky terrain of the Sonoran Desert in the area.

    Desert Canyon Golf Club boasts some spectacular views thanks to its dramatic mountain setting. The layout features narrow fairways that dogleg around high desert barrancas and arroyos and sculpted tees with stunning mountain backdrops.
    The 18-hole Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona is a resort golf course that opened in 1986. Designed by Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf, Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale measures 7261 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 142 and a 74.
    With views of the McDowell Mountains, Starfire Country Club is located in north-central Scottsdale and features 27 holes of golf. The Squire and King 18-hole combination blends the longest and shortest of the three nines together.

SunRidge Canyon Golf Club

The adventure begins at the SunRidge Canyon Golf Club! This 6,823-yard, par-71 Keith Foster layout is hidden among the foothills of the McDowell Mountains, widely considered one of the most picturesque and dramatic stretches of land in the Southwest. The natural, strategic desert design has subtle changes in topography that give the course a dramatic effect. But, don't let this tranquil desert setting fool you: this course's rare beauty tests every aspect of your game.

SunRidge Canyon was selected No. 42 on Golf Magazine's list of "The Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the United States," has been chosen by Arizona tournament players as the top-ranked daily-fee golf club, and was the host of the 1997 USGA State Team Championship.

The 18,000-square-foot SunRidge Canyon Golf Club's clubhouse is the ideal place to begin and end your golf adventure. Built to resemble a large Spanish hacienda from Arizona's territorial days, the clubhouse provides a full-service golf shop, men's and women's locker facilities, and a conference room.
