Why not give your dad the gift of superb golf this Father’s Day in Scottsdale?
Avid golfers have long zeroed in on Scottsdale and the greater Phoenix area, and for good reason. Boasting 330 days of incredible sunshine, more than 200 courses (51 golf courses in Scottsdale alone) set in the picturesque desert landscape, PGA, LPGA and Champions Tour events, and award-winning resorts and public facilities, it's pretty darn hard to beat the selection of quality golf courses that you’ll find here. Scottdale is continually ranked as one of the premier golf and resort destinations in the world, home to the Phoenix Open Golf Tournament held at the Tournament Players Club every year. Some of the best, top-rated golf courses in the country can be found in Scottsdale such as Troon North Golf Club's Monument and Pinnacle, Grayhawk, and Boulders, just to name a few! June through October in Arizona brings with it some serious heat but also the lowest prices for great golf, so why not show dad the love this year by treating him to a memorable round of Father's Day golf at one of Scottsdale’s premier golf clubs? Keep in mind that with the day heating up by 9 a.m., you probably don’t want to take dad out for a full round of golf or at least get the earliest tee time you can.
Below is the short list of some of the top golf courses in Scottsdale:
Troon North Golf Club - is often referred to as the “crown jewel of Scottsdale,” and the best public facility in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Troon North Golf Club offers an unparalleled desert golf experience, backed up by 36 holes of wonderfully designed classic desert golf by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish. The Monument and Pinnacle courses consistently rank as some of the best in the country. The rugged landscape of the Sonoran Desert creates a golf experience that is unmatched in the Southwest, offering challenging natural terrain and visual beauty.
We-Ko-Pa Golf Club - includes two award-winning golf courses and delivers one of the best golf experiences in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area. The Club lies on Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation land on the eastern edge of Scottsdale and offers spectacular views of the McDowell Mountains, Red Mountain, Four Peaks and the Superstitions. Scott Miller designed the Cholla Course and Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw designed Saguaro. The two courses are the #1 and #2 rated public access courses in Arizona. The clubhouse features a full-service restaurant, bar, and expansive patio with stunning views.
Grayhawk Golf Club - has two excellent desert layouts including the Talon Course and the Raptor Course, which used to host a PGA Tour event. Designed by Tom Fazio, the Raptor Course is interesting and challenging with a variety of long and short par 4s and some outstanding par 5s. Designed by David Graham and Gary Panks, the Talon Course features the par-3 17th, with its tough island green, and the drivable par-4 13th as part of interesting back nine.
The Boulders Golf Club - is considered to be among the finest courses in the country, The club features two superb courses, a 6,811 yard, par 72, championship North Course and a 6,726 yard, par 71 Championship South Course, both designed by Jay Morrish. The courses are considered the most demanding in the Southwest and are known for their rugged beauty. The North course, the older of the two courses, features spectacular views of Black Mountain as the course meanders through the Boulders community. Both courses are built right into the desert foothills and offer breathtaking views.
The Kierland Golf Club - is located in the heart of "new" Scottsdale, set against the picturesque mountain ranges of the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Part of the Troon family of courses, Kierland was honored as one of the “2017 Arizona Golf Course of the Year” by the National Golf Course Owners Association of Arizona and ranked by Golf Digest as one of “America’s 9 Most Cheerful Golf Courses.”
McDowell Golf Club - is built on the western slope of the rugged McDowell Mountains and offers 7,072 yards of fair, yet challenging play. The natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert provides a majestic backdrop to some of the most dramatic play in the country. Previously known as the Sanctuary Golf Course, the new and improved golf course recently underwent significant architectural changes that have enhanced the experience for golfers.
The Phoenician Golf Club - is one of Scottsdale's most popular golf destinations and offers three courses: Desert Nine, Oasis Nine, and Canyon Nine. Desert Nine offers a unique layout with spectacular desert views and dramatic elevation changes. Oasis Nine is a more traditional course with tree-lined fairways and scenic water features. Canyon Nine is situated on the southern slope of Camelback Mountain, offering amazing views of the city and desert terrain. Players can relax and enjoy a delicious meal at one of the resort's award-winning restaurants.
TPC at Scottsdale - is a favorite course of some of the sport's top players and recreational golfers, and is home to one of the largest-attended golf tournaments in the world -- the Waste Management Phoenix Open. A favorite for its playability and challenge, TPC at Scottsdale is surrounded by the scenic McDowell Mountains and features two championship courses: the Stadium Course and the Champions Course. TPC Scottsdale is Arizona's only PGA Tour facility.
HAPPY FATHERS DAY! -- and a big shout out to all the great dads out there!
