Golf Channel's Best of Phoenix Golf

Troon North

Troon North’s Pinnacle and Monument courses are some of the world’s finest examples of desert golf and a must-play on any Phoenix golf trip.

TPC Scottsdale

Play where the pros play at TPC’s Stadium course, the home of the world-famous Waste Management Phoenix Open. Don’t miss the less-talked-about but also entertaining Champions course.


A former private club now available for public play, Quintero offers a challenging test and stunning desert scenery just north of the Phoenix metro area.


For two years in a row now, Golfweek has ranked We-Ko-Pa’s Saguaro course the top public course in Arizona, with the Cholla course also in the top five.

Southern Dunes

The formerly private men’s club is now open to the public and was recently named by Golfweek as one of the country’s Top 100 Courses You Can Play.

Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North

Nestled in the high Sonoran desert near Pinnacle Peak, the Four Seasons is a premiere spot to unwind and relax after a day on the links.

Desert Wolf Tours

Get behind the wheel of a Tomcar and head off-road for an exhilarating tour of the desert featuring ghost towns, Indian ruins and more.

Roadrunner Steakhouse and Saloon

After your round, hang with the locals on the Roadrunner’s patio. You might even catch some genuine bull riding with your dinner.
