    Course suggestions for Phoenix and Tucson

    Hi,

    I just booked an Arizona golf trip with Voyage Gendron for this coming April. On top of the courses included in our package we would like to play a few extra rounds. Iím looking for course suggestions in the Phoenix area and in the Tucson area. And yes the Stadium course at TPC Scottsdale falls in the mix but not all the guys are ready to pay the $300 U.S. green fee.

    Thanks for your help.
    Ross

    Talking sticks has 36 nice holes. Red mountain ranch and las sendas in Mesa are both nice. Keep an eye on golfnow. Lots of deals in the 30-50% off range. Golf in Phoenix isnít cheap. Even with the deals Iíd budget $100 a game

    In Phoenix I would suggest Lookout Mountain, lot’s of elevation and the scenery is out of this world. Just outside of Phoenix going east I’d Gold canyon they have two beautiful golf courses Dinosaur and Sidewinder you will not be disappointed with either course. As far as I’m concern Talking Stick is overrated for the price it is a resort golf course and too difficult for the normal golfers to enjoy.
    BTW I will be there from mid December to mid March. Snowbirds for the winter

    In peak season there is very few options that arenít grossly overrpriced. Rates in October can basically double in Feb-Mar

    Yep--Arizona is not cheap but there are deals if you hunt. I played Antelope Hills many years ago--it is near Prescott. It was a riot--35.00 with a cart. Amazing views and holes. I think there are 36 holes now and the prices have definitely risen. It was worth the play then and probably still is. When I visited TPC Scottsdale--it took me over half an hour to muster up the courage to ask for a logo ball
    Does the 2nd hole-n-one come easier ?

    Another very nice course is the Raven golf course on Baseline Road in Tempe/Phoenix area. You should be able to get discount at Grayhawk another very nice course. Sine you are going in April the rate start to go down in mid March, so you will get lot’s of good deal.

    Quintero GC is a real treat. Prices should be reasonable in April. We have it booked for Nov 6th this year and got a good deal.

    In Tucson , I played many, here's two I recommend: #1: Ventana Canyon golf course, a real gem, beautiful scenery you can play it in the $60-$70US range on some days if you book with Teeoff.com or other online bookings,#2 Dove Mountain golf , where the PGA used to play the Accenture Match play Tourney, same as Ventana for price if you book online, if not it's in the $100US range for both

    Hey Kak,

    Thanks for the reply, actually both those course are on our radar. We are actually staying at the Ventana Condos and playing both Ventana courses, also part of our package are Quarry Pines, Arizona National and Sewailo golf courses.

    I contacted the ProShop at Dove Mountain they told me that they could do a 90 days advance booking for us, the green fees would be $169 U.S. I told them not to bother, I'll take my chances with Golf Now and book 7 days in advance.

    We should arrive in Phoenix around 11:00am local time so we are looking for a course located between Phoenix and Tucson to play on our drive over. Poston Butte Golf Club looks interesting ��

    Thanks
    Ross

    You will enjoy Quarry Pines. We have played it many times. Fun, but challenging.

    I went to Tucson 7 years ago and played Arizona National and Quarry Pines as part of our package. Quarry Pines is a short course but a very special layout....the name says it all. Stayed at Ventana condos and they are awsome. Our backyard was giving on the 5 th hole if i remember. Didn't get to play Ventana course but we went to the resort and it is just spectacular. You'll have fun.
