Par For The Course

If you’re a golfer and new to Arizona, welcome home. You could play a different course every week in the Valley of the Sun, and North Scottsdale has no shortage of greens to try. Pro tip: Courses will over-seed for two weeks in late September/October, so while the weather may be good, check to see when the course will be closed. If you don’t mind early tee times or braving a little heat, you can find rock-bottom rates for championship courses during the summertime.
