Scottsdale is a major destination desert town and a haven for golfers who want to keep the season going all year long. And while it wasn’t always this way, Scottsdale has now become quite the hot spot in top tier golf courses in the country.
The prime times for Scottsdale courses are January through early April, while temperatures are mild and sunny. However, the surrounding seasons in November/December and April/May are still fairly nice, but offer more tee time availability and lower prices. Those that brave the courses in the summer months show true dedication as the desert heat is brutal on the courses.
With so many great spots to hit up in Scottsdale, you can really make a true “golf getaway” and play multiple courses within a week. If you're looking to travel to Scottsdale, or looking to rent golf clubs in Scottsdale, here are our top 5 must-see courses in Scottsdale:
- Troon North. This public course has been a longtime favorite for golfers for many years, and it’s easy to see why. The stunning views of Pinnacle Peak and surrounding mountains nestle well with the cacti, rock terrain, and arroyos. Their two courses are both amazing, though you’ll get slightly more scenic views on the Monument Course. The Pinnacle course is a consistent and cohesive from hole to hole, and is actually walkable!
