Fall is a wonderful season – the weather cools off, the leaves may be turning colours, and Thanksgiving brings a connection with loved ones and a kickoff to the Christmas season. For golfers, fall also triggers the need to plan a golf vacation somewhere warm during colder winter months. With an average of 330 sunny days per year, and over 200 golf courses within Scottsdale and surrounding area, vacationing in what has been called the world’s greatest golf destination is hard to beat.
If you’ve golfed in Scottsdale then you’re aware of the beauty that the area brings (and you likely already have your tickets booked). If you haven’t been to Arizona or haven’t golfed there, then you’ll want to visualize playing under a giant sunny sky, alongside rugged mountains, foothills and ravines; each course brings its own unique landscape and challenges, but all have the Arizona beauty in common.
If the Scottsdale days are perfect for 18 holes, then you’ll love the evenings for the 19th hole – the central location of Old Town Scottsdale has top-quality restaurants for all tastes, styles and budgets, and the nightlife is legendary. Staying in a luxury vacation home in Old Town gives you a central location for easy access to courses in any direction, all the space, comfort and amenities you’ll want, and a quick walk, scooter or golf cart transport distance to your evening activities.
Whether you choose the highly acclaimed layout at Grayhawk, the traditional desert views of We-Ko-Pa Golf Club , canyons and ravines at Eagle Mountain Golf Club, playing where the pros play at TPC Scottsdale which draws thousands of spectators to its annual Waste Management Phoenix Open, or any of the highly-ranked courses in area, your days and nights in Scottsdale will quickly turn you into a raving fan and you’ll be planning your return trip before you’ve even left.See more top-ranked courses
