Phoenix Golf

Golfing in Phoenix is as close to perfection as you’re ever going to get. The outstanding thing about Phoenix golf is that you hardly ever have to worry about getting rained out; the largest city in the Desert Southwest receives over 320 days of pure sunshine on an annual basis (be on the lookout for March, though—that’s the wettest month that Phoenix sees). Even in the wintertime, temperatures hardly ever drop below freezing, and in the summertime, although there’s no doubt it can get very hot in Phoenix, the heat is “sans humidity”, so even the higher temperatures can feel cooler due to the dry heat.

The Phoenix-Scottsdale area boasts a veritable “Who’s Who” of top-notch golf course designers and architects: Courses designed and developed by Weiskopf, Jones, Moorish, Fazio, Cupp, Nicklaus, Palmer, Nash, Dye, and Hills all call the Valley of the Sun their home. An extensive array of public, municipal and private equity courses are available, all with their own unique characteristics and features. Several award-winning golf courses are located in the greater Phoenix area, each one crafted to incorporate the natural beauty of the surroundings, including rolling hills and breathtaking panoramic views. For further ease of convenience, many of the golf courses are only a proverbial “stone’s throw” from Sky Harbor Airport, a gem in and of itself.

All told, the greater Phoenix area boasts over 200 golf courses. There are just as many types of course designs as there are playing styles; you’ll see everything from the traditional links style courses (you might forget that you’re not in Scotland) to courses that incorporate the interplay of lakes, creeks, and other bodies of water to make for a more challenging and stimulating round of play. But don’t think that you have to be a professional golfer to enjoy the various Phoenix golf courses that are available; there truly is a course for every single level of play that exists. So whether you are a low or high handicapper, a novice or pro, Phoenix offers you excellent golfing on every level.
