Arizona Golf with Elegant Resorts
For a luxurious golfing splurge, Arizona’s terrific line-up of world-class golf courses awaits. Expect creative layouts and velvet greens groomed to tiptop condition, with backdrops so dazzling they make you gape.
Let’s take the three beautifully contoured, 9-hole stunners at The Phoenician, with magnetic desert views and fairways to match. Each course is uniquely designed to offer a variety of 18-hole combinations: The Canyon Nine sits in the foothills of Camelback Mountain, the Desert Nine has an impressive, multi-tiered layout and the traditionally-styled Oasis Nine has tree-lined fairways and water features. Rent a Stewart Follow Cart with bluetooth technology, leaving you free to walk and soak up the scenery. Round off play at the ‘19th Hole’, where you can exchange tips over hot dogs and sodas.
Next, Tom Weiskopf’s two desert classics, The Pinnacle and The Monument, at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North, which carve their way through natural ravines along the lower slopes of Pinnacle Peak. Test them out for yourself, then soothe stretched muscles with an exclusive Golfer’s Massage.
Another amazing golfing destination is Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. Take your pick from the Stadium Course, with its exciting 15th hole challenge, the new Champions Course, featuring unique emerald-green fairways and tee boxes, Talon and Raptor at the Grayhawk Golf Club, Cholla and Saguaro at We-Ko-Pa, plus The Pinnacle and The Monument, as mentioned above. Be sure to plan an itinerary to squeeze in as many as possible during your stay!
Or try Sedona, where red rock formations, stately cacti and bright blue skies frame immaculate greens at Seven Canyons Golf Course, a true desert classic near Enchantment Resort.
It’s little wonder Arizona keeps appearing on golfers’ must-play lists. And enough reason to reach for your passport and clubs!
