Golfing is Plentiful in the Ahwatukee - Chandler - Gilbert Area

If there is a golfer’s heaven, it must be located here, southeast of Phoenix.  We are blessed with perfect golfing weather most of the year.  The really die-hard player can probably play every day.  And there is enough choice in courses that it would be a long time before any player would be bored and ready to find new challenges.   Golfers can choose from at least 24 courses in just a 10 mile radius in our area.

Many golf clubs offer instruction to the new golfer or tips to improve a seasoned player’s game.  If that isn’t enough, we have The Ahwatukee Academy of Golf.  This licensed SwingModel facility uses state of the art technology to analyze your swing and develop strategies to make improvements.  What more could a golfer want?

Our courses are public and private, although most public courses do offer some kind of membership with additional benefits and some private courses accept guests or have some kind of daily visitor arrangement. There are courses with a relaxed atmosphere where a friendly game is the norm, and courses where many serious golfers work hard for every stroke. Here is an overview of just a few of the courses you will find here in golf heaven.
