Arizona golf resorts dot the entire length of the Grand Canyon State, making it one of the top choices for people who want to spend a nice vacation with their family. However, with over 300 golf resorts and courses in Arizona, picking the right one is a little complicated, especially for those who may be going to this part of the country for the first time.
Being a desert state, Arizona provides at least 300 days of sunshine each year. That alone is reason enough for amateur and professional golfers to troop to Arizona golf resorts. More than the sunshine, however, Arizona is home to some of the best golf resorts in the country. Then again, what is “best” can vary depending on what a person is looking. In no particular order, the following resorts are considered by not a few people as some of the best Arizona has to offer.
1. Arizona Grand Resort – For the golfer, the link-style golf course is a challenge for anyone who wants to improve their game while the majestic and calming view of the South Mountain Park can flush away frustration and stress. On the other hand, non-golfers can have a relaxing weekend at the athletic club, while kids can enjoy the Wild Cat Springs. Indeed, there is something for everyone at this Arizona golf resort.
2. The Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa – If one’s idea of a great golf course is having huge desert rock formations as backdrop, then this Arizona golf resort is the right choice. Boasting of two of the best golf courses in the southwest, the Boulders also has the best services for vacationers. Playing tennis, shopping, relaxing at a spa, and dining are just some of the things that one can do at the resort that has nothing to do with golf.
3. The Phoenician – Luxury is one word that best describes the Phoenician. Three different nine-hole courses, gorgeous Sonoran Desert view, a golf shop with everything one needs, and practice facilities. These and more are what one gets with a visit to The Phoenician. Indeed, if there is one place that can represent Arizona golf resorts, the Phoenician is it.
