Phoenix and the surrounding cities have no shortage of stunning golf courses.
Greens wind through the mountains at Eagle Mountain Golf Club and Las Sendas Golf Club, and bouldering landscapes are found at Troon North Golf Club and The Boulders Golf Club, among other scenic backdrops and grounds.
Visitors could easily fill a week golfing at a different spectacularly scenic course each day—and we’re giving you eight great options to consider.
Not a golfer? Many of these courses have scenic eateries where you can dine and take in the views from a cozy patio chair.
Eagle Mountain Golf Club
This Fountain Hills course offers plenty of rolling hills and desert vistas, along with a clear view of Red Mountain. At times, you might find yourself navigating your golf cart along mountainside pathways. Plan to dine at The Grille and continue to enjoy vast panoramas of the southeast Valley.
The Westin Kierland Golf Club
As one of the most accessible courses to nearby shopping, dining and nightlife destinations, its scenery is no less impressive than that of a secluded mountainous course. Do the environment a favor (and give your legs an extra workout) by opting to use the golf caddy bikes instead of a cart.
Troon North Golf Club
Troon North Golf Club makes Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 Golf Courses You Can Play” list, and sits in the foothills of boulder-piled Pinnacle Peak. Dine at Dynamite Grill at Troon North and overlook the 18th hole of the Pinnacle Course.
The Boulders Golf Club
Two semi-private courses in the town of Carefree wind through bouldering landscapes with photo-worthy views at nearly every turn. There’s no question why The Boulders Golf Club lands on many top lists of golf courses and golf resorts in America—and the world.
The Phoenician Golf Club
Another award-winner, The Phoenician Golf Club sits at the base of Camelback Mountain and provides Bluetooth-equipped Stewart XIX Follow Carts (for an extra fee) that follow golfers who prefer to walk the greens. Enjoy views of the course from The Phoenician’s Relish Burger Bistro.
Gold Canyon Golf Resort
Desert landscapes and a backdrop of the dramatic Superstition Mountains make the two 18-hole courses in the southeast Valley a must-visit, no matter what part of the Valley you’re staying in. Be sure to enjoy a sunset on the patio of The Ledge at Dinosaur Mountain while sipping a local craft beer.
Las Sendas Golf Club
Bordering East Mesa’s Usery Mountain Regional Park is a desert-style course at Las Sendas Golf Club, offering great elevation changes and stunning views. More breathtaking panoramas are enjoyed from two dining destinations: The Patio and The Grille.
We-Ko-Pa Golf Club
Thirty-six holes in the East Valley meander through serene desert landscapes with nearby saguaro cacti and distant mountain backdrops to gaze eyes upon between swings. The Saguaro Grille at We-Ko-Pa Golf Club overlooks the first and 18th holes of the Saguaro course.
