PHOENIX, AZ - Arizona is the place to go if you're looking for a golf vacation that has it all. Here are some tips you can follow to have an enjoyable golf trip in the hot Grand Canyon State.
Check the weather
Instead of going against the weather, it's better to just work with it. Always check the weather app before going outside. Even though the sky is a "sun sign" all day, it's a good idea to be prepared for unexpected shocks like fast-moving thunderstorms in summer afternoons. Use extra sunscreen and drink more water when you're golfing in Phoenix, Tucson, and Sedona.
Mind the surroundings
Cacti, rattlesnakes, and even Gila monsters may be found in the desert, and rogue swings can send innocuous golf balls into dangerous territory. When retrieving wayward balls or trying to obtain a better angle on that snapshot, use caution wherever you are.
Add the Grand Canyon and Route 66
Because of Arizona's convenient entry points, a visit to Grand Canyon National Park may easily be integrated into a week-long (or even shorter) golf vacation. Furthermore, as you go north, you'll pass across a section of the famous Route 66. Talk about crossing two items off your bucket list at once.
Check Arizona's quirky courses
There are several outstanding golf courses in Arizona that should not be missed. Try out:
- The Short Course at Mountain Shadows in Scottsdale. In two and a half hours, you can complete all 18 holes or 9 holes in an hour and a half.
- Rancho Course at Tubac Golf Resort & Spa. Located along the Santa Cruz Riverbank, the course is both scenic and challenging.
- TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course. The world's largest spectator golf event, the Waste Management Phoenix Open, is held at this location.
Observe the professional putt
Every year, the world's best golf players gather in Arizona to compete. Organize your golf trip around one of Arizona's several yearly tournaments if you love seeing the pros.
