Regarded as one of the finest golf destinations in the world, Scottsdale is a golfer’s paradise. Situated in the heart of Arizona’s desert region, Scottsdale offers luxury hotel resorts, an year-round warm climate, and world-class golf courses, making it the perfect golf vacation destination.
Sitting at the foothills of the Mcdowell Mountains, and only a short drive from Arizona’s capital, Phoenix, Scottsdale is lined with rocky desert terrain and cacti, offering the perfect postcard-worthy backdrop to your round. Scottsdale is also a mere few hours drive from the Grand Canyon, one of the world’s natural wonders.
Home to the Waste Management Phoenix Open, “The Greatest Show on Grass,” TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course is a must play on any Valley of the Sun golf itinerary.
While you may never make a 3-pointer from center court at Madison Square Garden, or catch the winning touchdown pass at Gillette Stadium – you can try to emulate Tiger Woods with an ace on your scorecard on the infamous Par 3, 16th.
That’s what makes golf so special, you can play where the pros play, and the Phoenix/Scottsdale area is one of their favorite stops not just during the tournament.
TPC Scottsdale, Grayhawk, We-Ko-Pa and Troon North all feature 36-holes of championship golf on site that make for epic long and satisfying days, with great clubhouses and excellent cuisine choices pre, post and during your round. Or chose to play only 18 holes on most days and enjoy the shopping, attractions and excellent dining.

On the other side of Phoenix in the West Valley, lies Arizona’s most historic golf oasis set in 440-acres of pristine desert, The Wigwam. Opening its doors in 1929, with the first nine-hole course designed by their Scottish gardener in 1930.
The luxury resort has come a long way since then and is still Arizona’s only resort with 54-holes of championship golf. The courses are the Red Course named after the first pro “Red” Allen and the architect Robert “Red” Lawrence.
In keeping with the color-name theme Robert Trent Jones Sr. added the Blue and Gold championship courses. The Gold is considered one of the very best in the state.
