Where to Play

I‘ve played golf and traveled all over the world. I know the very best when I see it, and that’s why I choose to live and play in Scottsdale.

The city boasts more than 200 golf courses in the surrounding area. But that’s just scratching the surface. Scottsdale shines just as brightly off the course as it does on it. The weather is consistently spectacular, and the resorts, dining, nightlife, outdoor adventures and natural beauty are truly beyond compare. Trust me…Scottsdale is, quite simply, the world’s finest golf destination.

Of course with so many courses, we can’t list them all here. But, check below to get the skinny on some of my favorite places to play.
