Golf Nomad Regional Course Rankings: Central Arizona

(Phoenix, Scottsdale and Sedona)

I’m still just getting to know the incredible Arizona golf scene. The courses I’ve played are a little spread out, but the majority are in the golf-loaded Phoenix/Scottsdale area. I’ve included the one Sedona course I played on this list because it doesn’t quite fit in any other regions I’ve set up yet. I hope to add a whole lot more to this list over time!

These rankings are based on my impressions of the overall design, scenery and relative value combined with more measurable elements such as conditioning, facilities and customer service (taking into account my personal experience(s) at the course and general word-of-mouth from Greenskeeper.org reviews/ratings).

Keep in mind when clicking on any active review links below that often I review multiple courses in the same article, so sometimes you have to scroll down in the story to find the course listed here.
