AZ golf recommendations!


Recommended Posts

I'm tagging along with the wife to a photography conference she goes to every year in Tempe and I'm planning on playing some golf while I"m there. I've already played We-Ko-Pa and Desert Forest so I'm looking to expand on my AZ golf portfolio. For those of you who have been or live in the area, what are the 'must play' courses? I appreciate the recommendations!

Troon North is awesome. 

Boulders is supposed to be really good as well but I haven't played there.

Here are the courses I'm looking at so far. 

1. Ak-Chin Southern Dunes

2. Troon North

3. Quintero Golf Club

4. Grayhawk

Subject to change of course, but narrowing it down will make my life easier for planning purposes!

Must play would be the mentioned Troon North and Quintero. The 2 Verrado Courses in Buckeye are great Founders and Victory, I prefer the Founders But #18 at the Victory is the best hole. Southern Dunes is great as well. Boulders is nice a nice resort course with some beautiful scenery. A few other good options are Grayhawk, Sun Ridge Canyon, Whirlwind, Raven, Gold Canyon, Rio Verde Golf and Social Club, and Wickenburg Ranch.

Right on, thanks! I tossed up a post on IG and a buddy of mine mentioned Grayhawk so I'll probably add that to the list. As long as the prices aren't prohibitive, I'm planning on playing at least 3 rounds so I want to make sure I'm getting the most bang for my buck!

ASU Karsten was one of the best tests of golf I’ve ever played. It doesn’t look complicated and it’s not the best course I’ve played but it’ll make you think.

Keep your fingers crossed the wind isn’t up on 9 & 18.

That’s a huge bummer.

Guess you’ll have to play Papago instead and hang with the Cartbarnguys

Papago was my go to when I lived in the area. Got off from work at 3am and got in line. One of the best muni's I've ever played.

Hey Partner...Good to see you pop in!  

When I was in Phoenix in April, that was one that got a lot of talk from locals as being one of the best in the area and the price beat all the resort prices.

Papago has gone down hill a bit. The new clubhouse and restaurant is top notch, but course conditions have suffered. Pretty dry and worn, at least 2 months back. Good layout though

Alright, I leave for AZ tomorrow and here's what I ended up going with. 

Grayhawk Raptor

Troon North Monument

Ak Chin Southern Dunes

All of them just over seeded so they're CPO, but that shouldn't be too big of an issue. I'm pumped about getting my desert golf fix!

Enjoy. Troon is one of my favorites.

Which one did you like better? I went with Monument so I'm not punishing myself unnecessarily, haha!

Only played Pinnacle. And we were stupid in college and played the tips. But it was fair. Monument is supposed to just as good. Guy at work plays it every year.
