The Phoenix and Scottsdale metro area golf courses create a golf vacation paradise unmatched anywhere in the world. For golfers living in Arizona, everyday is a golf vacation! With Fall/Winter golf season upon us, most Phoenix area golf courses are in peak condition. The golf courses are very busy during this period. Green fee specials are still popular on many golf resort websites recently making Arizona one of the best golf travel destinations in the U.S. Daily fee golf courses are also often offer web specials on their websites allowing golfers to play for some very reasonable green fee rates although many top courses can have rates over $100 during the March to early April time frame. However, mid to late afternoon times are often discounted.
Sedona and Prescott courses are a little cooler in the higher elevations which can have some very chilly morning temperatures but conditions do start to improve in April. Courses such as StoneRidge in Prescott Valley always offer a challenging round of golf about an hour north of Phoenix but temperatures can be a bit cool from December – March so plan to wear pants when venturing to Northern Arizona during this period.
