Embassy Suites - Scottsdale The Lodge, Ventana Canyon - Tucson
Fly to Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and join an escorted tour of some of the best golf in Arizona. You will start in the 'golfing heaven' of Scottsdale, in a perfect climate - average mid-November daytime temperatures are 25 degrees. You then move onto to experience the best of Tucson golf. This event will be hosted by Terry Rawding.
Arizona, with golf rich cities is without doubt one of the world's best golf destinations. The golf courses are as diverse and spectacular as the Arizona landscape. Golf here is challenging - hence the handicap limit of 28, but it has to be experienced to understand just how good Arizona golf is. And to that add great USA service experience.
Arrivals day is 13/11/19. Your first hotel is 20 mins from Sky Harbor Airport.
Your hotel in Scottsdale for 4 nights is the Embassy Suites on the edge of Old Town Scottsdale with its "wild west" bars and a choice of restaurants. Nearby you have all the high-end shops at Fashion Square - so you are very much in the heart of Scottsdale. Your golf is 30 mins or so away on the edge of Scottsdale - in the desert! Where you can see bobcats, coyote and lot's more wildlife!
You will enjoy the spacious Embassy Suite rooms with 2 rooms and all the amenities you would expect - such as pools, restaurant, gardens to relax in and a spa. The package includes daily buffet breakfast. Plus, most nights the manager offers a free drinks reception!
The recently refurbished Embassy overlooks the Camelback mountains.
The golf includes 3 rounds in Scottsdale - 2 of which are at We Ko Pa - you play golf on an Indian Reservation. The 2 courses here are amongst the very best in Arizona - Saguaro, designed by Ben Crenshaw, rated 7th best and Cholla 22nd - on both you are amongst nature in the Sonoran Desert, with no surrounding property.
Your opening Scottsdale round is at Legends Trail designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr. This delightful course is your introduction to Arizona desert golf!
On 17/11/19 we take the 2hr drive to Tucson and move to The Lodge at Ventana Canyon. Again, you stay in suite accommodation and breakfast is included.
Here you have a world renowned tennis centre, pools, a spa and 2 desert golf courses. The suite rooms with kitchens are spacious and overall the scale and the set-up of The Lodge, with the club house in the same building is just perfect for golfers.
We play the 2 spectacular Tom Fazio courses at Ventana - the Mountain and the Canyon - they will be a never forgotten experience!
That is 5 rounds of the best of Arizona golf and on the Tucson rest day we have reserved tee times at the local Dove Mountain course - past home of the World Matchplay - so that tells you all you need to know about the challenge of this course!
Or fancy something different on the rest day then a group might fancy a drive down to Tubac 40 miles from the Mexican border - see the museum of the fortress settlement fought over many times and pop along to the local golf course where some of 'Tin Cup' was filmed!
So that is 8 nights in 2 locations! You may know that higher-end US hotels change a resort fee and local taxes - well the resort fees alone are $25 dollars per night at each of these hotels, but we have included these and the local taxes in our prices - so no more for you to pay.
The initial group size is limited to 8 and will only be added to in units of 4. The transport is based around 4 clients sharing a very comfortable 7 seat Dodge Caravan (or similar) self-drive. Not all need to drive, but ideally there are 2 drivers per vehicle - the cost of the self-drive option is below.
