With so many visitors flocking to Scottsdale this time of year, it is no surprise that the number two reason they come here is for golf. Scottsdale and its surrounding area is home to over 200+ golf courses, and some the finest golf courses the world has to offer. To help you weed through all the possible choices of where to play, here is a complimentary Scottsdale Golf Guide for you to download.
(The number one reason for our winter visitors’ arrival? You guessed it, the weather. With an average of 330 days of sunshine a year, Scottsdale has earned it’s boasting rights!)
Many Scottsdale luxury communities are built around golf courses. In North Scottsdale you’ll find private clubs in these communities: DC Ranch (course designed by John Fought and later redesigned by Tom Lehman; Silverleaf (course designed by Tom Weiskopf), Estancia and Mirabel (courses designed by Tom Fazio); Desert Mountain (six signature courses designed by Jack Nicklaus); Desert Highlands (another Jack Nicklaus-designed course), and last but not least Whisper Rock (two courses by Fazio and Mickelson.)
There are just as many fine public courses that are a wonderful amenity for surrounding residents, as well as visitors. For example, take the exclusive partnership between Four Seasons Scottsdale and Troon North Golf Club, earning the Resort the title of Best Golf Resort in the Southwest by Travel + Leisure Golf magazine.
For more great golf take in a round at Grayhawk Golf Club‘s exclusive Talon course or try out 18 or 36 holes at TPC Scottsdale‘s championship courses, home of the PGA Tour Phoenix Open.
The Phoenician Golf Club, Camelback Golf Club, McDowell Mountain Golf Club, Kierland Golf Club, and Talking Stick Golf Club are a few other public courses that are often at the top of a visitor’s itinerary.
While you will find a laid back attitude here in Scottsdale (known as the “Most Liveable City in the West”,) it’s not so on the course, and collared shirts are still required in the clubhouses and on the courses.
