The last few days here in Ottawa has been unsettling cool considering our relatively mild and dry spring so far. Canada is all about extremes when it comes to weather especially in the winter and that’s when most of the die-hard golfers are looking to book their trips to sunny destinations to get the chance to swing their clubs in some warm air.
In recent times more golfers are choosing the hot desert climate of the Phoenix/Scottsdale area to get away from Canada’s blustery winter. When its bitter cold in February you can head to Phoenix and experience average temperature highs of 22°C and lows of 9°C. With endless sunshine the Phoenix/Scottsdale area is a Mecca for heat seeking golfers. With a plethora of public and resort courses to choose from there’s something for everyone’s taste.
For me I still haven’t had the chance to go to the area but with so many contacts in the area it will happen soon enough. Here are a couple of courses I have on my list to play.
We-Ko-Pa Golf Club
Located outside of the city on the Fort McDowell Indian Reservation, We-Ko-Pa’s 36 hole desert golf experience with mountain vistas is pretty much what I imagine when I dream of someday golfing in the area. No big city elements to impede my desert golf experience in the Sonoran Desert.
Troon North Golf Club
Troon boasts two 18-hole courses that are carved through the beautiful foothills and natural ravines of Arizona's Sonoran Desert. The Monument and Pinnacle courses are definitely on my Phoenix/Scottsdale golf list, best in State.
