Whats Your Favorite Course in Phoenix?

Chris92009

Price is no object as long as the course provides a fun and tough layout...there has been a lot of expansion of courses there over the years and wanted to play next week! Thanks for your input..

    Big fan of the Troon North the monument golf course and We-Ko-Pa Golf Club. Both excellent golf courses and the experience is top notch. I love desert golf and when you play both of these you have all of the elements.

    Have you played desert golf before? If not bring a spare wedge!

    Chris...Hands down no comparison. The Arizona Biltmore Adobe Course -
    ADOBE COURSE - PAR 71, 6,430 YARDS -

    I've played it several times and can't wait to get back. Give it a look.

    Stately and grand, the Adobe Course was built in 1928 out of the vision and desire of chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, Jr. He persuaded Riviera and Bel-Air Country Club architect, William Bell, to design what was one of the first courses in Phoenix. An Arizona Classic.

    A TRADITIONAL STYLE GOLF COURSE -

    The par 71, 6,430 yard Adobe is a true parkland course. Generous, sprawling fairways, with numerous, hungry bunkers.


    Set against the backdrop of the picturesque Phoenix Mountain Preserve and the far-reaching southern skyline of downtown Phoenix, the Adobe provides views as breathtaking as the course itself.

    The Adobe Course is one of the best Phoenix golf courses in the valley in my opinion.

    The two courses at We Ko Pa are no doubt the top two courses in the Phoenix area. All 36 holes have a beautiful design with great shot values, The courses are always in perfect condition. Unlike many courses on PHX, the courses are locates in the quiet desert-- no highways and no homes-- just beautiful Sonoran desert.

    My best friend lives in Glendale, so I go there every year...

    Let me give you a few I have personally played....in no order...

    1. Troon North....great track, beautiful homes along it. Elevation changes. Go early or stay late, and eat breakfast or lunch on the veranda overlooking the course.

    2. Grayhawk....either course, but I like the Talon. Also, great proshop, and catch lunch at Phil's grill, where he is a member and a lot of his memorabilia is there.

    3. Whisper Rock...has many tour players as members, if you can get on.

    4. ASU Karsten course. Home of the ASU golf teams, and collegiate home of Phil Mickelson. A Pete Dye course, neat clubhouse and undulating greens. I played it the day before a college tournament(I didn't know), and the rough seemed akin to the US Open.

    5. Estrella Golf Course....also a Troon Golf Property. In the mountains just south of the city. Dramatic elevation changes and beautiful scenery. Loved that course.

    Now, 2 out of the box picks...

    ABSOLUTE MUST PLAY...
    The Short Course at Mountain Shadows. Yes, it is a par 3 course, but has 2 par 4's, and is difficult. Country club feel, as they have have box of free tees and divot tools at the starter area. Also has a 17.5 hole that is only a putting green that is used for settling bets. The second nine winds through some houses and is fun and challenging. They recently redid the whole property and added a boutique hotel. Lots of fun, a different challenge, and harder than you think.

    2. Top Golf...another fun event. On the 101 in Scottsdale. Google it and watch the video. One thing, if you bring your own clubs, leave your woods in the car or they will check them(like a coat check). The range is only so long, so you have to use their woods. I did, and I flew to the end of the range. A really fun thing to do. Best in the dark when you can it all light up.

    2 fun eats...
    1. In and Out Burger ...I wish they had these out east...they are everywhere there...

    2. Ted's Hot Dogs in Tempe. It is where the owner of Ted's retired to. The Ted's are in Buffalo and are charcoal fired dogs they make right in front of you. You can get chicken or hamburgers, but get the dogs. Onion rings are a must as well.

    Can you tell I love that place...my favorite vacation spot. I love when I can see the Indians play in the spring.
