Make Scottsdale your next "Go To" destination for golf

22 August 2023

Scottsdale and golf became synonymous nearly 100 years ago as visitors chipped and putted from oiled dirt courses under towering Camelback Mountain. Celebrities like Bing Crosby followed shortly thereafter, paving the way for a golden era that heralded golf gods such as Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus.

Since then, Scottsdale has swung its way into the Golf Hall of Fame with 1,223 holes and 51 golf courses, and an additional 200 courses sprinkled across its Valley of the Sun neighbors. Not to mention, few destinations can match the unique golf landscape found in Scottsdale’s Sonoran Desert, with its unexpectedly green, lush fairways – often bordered by billion-year-old rock formations – and towering saguaro cacti dotting the courses. Scottsdale’s golf operators are dedicated to preserving the health and integrity of the Sonoran Desert and are among the industry leaders in environmental stewardship.  Add in 70 hotels and resorts in the greater Scottsdale area, 330-plus days of annual sunshine and a year-round median average temperature of 70 degrees, and it’s no wonder why this city is an unparalleled global golf destination.
