Best known for the picturesque Grand Canyon, the 1,450-mile-long Colorado River, and its cactus-filled national parks, Arizona is an understated golfer’s paradise.
The Phoenix-Scottsdale mecca boasts over 250 world-class golf courses and resorts, with awe inspiring views and a truly unique terrain. The action is often centered on Scottsdale, but there are plenty of other world-class golf courses in Arizona just waiting to be explored.

Arizona’s golf courses span the depths of the desert to the foothills of its majestic mountain ranges. It truly does offer some of the most spectacular views around, but don’t forget to pack your sunglasses. The state boasts around 350 days of sunshine a year.
Often dubbed “The Grand Canyon State”, The Grand Canyon National Park is one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. A trip to the steep-sided canyon is an absolute must during your golf vacation in Arizona, but there’s an entire state waiting to be explored. There are 22 national parks across the state and the Sonoran Desert offers the unique experience of being the only place in the world to watch the iconic saguaro cactus grow.
Aside from its natural beauty, Arizona is also home to over 100 wineries producing 22 varieties of wine. It also hosts 3 of the best destination spas in the world – two in Tucson and one in Sedona.
With so much to see, a golf trip to Arizona requires a lot of planning. If you’re ready to explore the best course and must-see sights, check out our Arizona golf packages or get in touch with a member of our team.

Tucson is known as the anchor of the Arizona sun corridor, and the second most populated city in Arizona has a lot to offer when it comes to golf courses. Popular courses include San Ignacio and Dove Mountain.

TPC Stadium, Troon North Pinnacle, Grayhawk Raptor, We Ko Pa Cholla, and We Ko Pa Seguaro were five of the most entertaining and beautifully manicured courses I’ve ever played! Grayhawk Golf Club is the most gorgeous and welcoming facility. Playing with a member made the experience there even better.
There are over 300 golf courses located in Arizona, including the world-renowned Phoenix-Scottsdale mecca which numbers around 250 courses and is home to some of the most unique golfing environments in the world.
The best time of the year for golfing in Arizona is in Winter and Spring – which is considered peak season as the weather cools down. In summer Arizona can reach temperatures of around 90 F – 120 F, sometimes even higher. Summer Arizona golfers generally play very early to avoid the extreme heat of the day.
There have been many golf tournaments played historically in Arizona, however, one of the most popular tournaments on the PGA Tour, the Phoenix Waste Management Open, is held annually at TPC Scottsdale.
