If you’ve never teed off over the tops of tall cacti or searched for a ball among towering boulders and mesquite, it’s time to check out some Arizona golf. With hundreds of challenging courses across the State and a diverse range of natural settings – from desert to alpine to links courses – it’s a golf experience like nowhere else. Plus 325 days of sunshine per year doesn’t hurt either! Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa and Tucson all offer world-class golf experiences, with accommodations to match.
The Phoenix - Scottsdale region is home to some of the leading golf destination resorts in the world, including the Fairmont Scottsdale Resort, The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa , The Wigwam Resort, Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa, Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort and more. In the Tucson area be sure to experience the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Resort & Spa, Tubac Golf Resort & Spa or the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort. Arizona’s arid conditions have also created a unique style of golf course called ‘desert target.’ Because State law regulates how much water can be used for irrigation, fairways are kept to a minimum and the desert landscape becomes your course. Yes, accuracy is rewarded – but no matter what your skill level, golfing in Arizona is an experience not to be missed.
