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

  • 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.

    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.
    The 18-hole Torres Blancas Golf Club in Green Valley, Arizona is a public golf course that opened in 1995. Designed by Lee Trevino, Torres Blancas Golf Club measures 6782 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 125 and a 71.
    Situated at the base of the Catalina Mountains near Tucson, the aptly named MountainView Golf Club offers unrivaled views. The course is a favorite amongst Saddlebrooke locals. The golf course sprawls across hilly terrain covered with mesquite trees.
  • 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.

    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 Riverview Golf Course in Sun City, Arizona is a semi-private golf course that opened in 1972. Designed by Jeff Hardin, Riverview Golf Course measures 6391 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 117 and a 69.3 USGA rating. The course features 3 sets of tees for different skill levels.
    With a convenient central location in the Valley of the Sun, the Arizona Grand Golf Course at the Arizona Grand Resort is the perfect opportunity for golfers to test their game against a traditional links layout mixed with desert target golf.
  • 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.

    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.
    The 18-hole North at Boulders Golf Club & Resort in Carefree, Arizona is a resort golf course that opened in 1985. Designed by Jay Morrish, North at Boulders Golf Club & Resort measures 6731 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 144 and a 73.
    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.

We-Ko-Pa - Cholla

We-Ko-Pa Golf Course is a spectacular 7,225-yard 18-hole golf course located within the boundaries of the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, just 15 minutes east of Scottsdale, AZ.

We-Ko-Pa presents a unique alternative to the already upscale Scottsdale golf market. Designed by Scott Miller, the golf course yields some of the most dramatic and "natural" views of the surrounding mountain ranges including the Four Peaks, McDowell Mountains, Red Mountains and the Superstitions.

A lush desert feel is created by the ample amount of natural mesquite, palo verde, saguaros, shrubbery and desert vegetation that sprawl through the arroyos and canyons of We-Ko-Pa.
