My brother and I are headed to Scottsdale for my 50th in Feb, and while we both play to a 14, his handicap is based on 9-holes, plus a couple mulli's and foot wedges.
Looking for suggestions where we can play that give us the flavor of desert golf without punishing him, buying a new dozen balls per round, and/or causing slow rounds for those behind us.
Thinking...Papago, Talking Stick North/O'odham, Gold Canyon Sidewinder, Lookout Mountain, and Arizona Golf Resort.
Are there others you would recommend?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks, Dale. Do you recall the airport traffic being an issue? I read a few reviews that spoke about small craft noise. Golf boards look fun too.

This is a great idea.....I'm going to take an old 6 iron with me!

Papago was my go to course as it is user friendly. Stonecreek too. I never found a bad course in AZ so it’s a no brainer anywhere. We played high elevation and low. Arnold Palmer Legend course has it all. Desert and snakes are everywhere, and you will need an old iron as a 15th club in some cases at some courses like old desert TPC if it’s still the same. Most are just fine. If you want grassy conditions and some desert I recommend Ocotillo.

Sounds like a good time! We'll be there 1/30- 2/3. Tee times are booked for Raven, Troon North (both courses), Gold Canyon (Dinosaur Mountain), and Papago.
