Golf & Spa Resorts | Scottsdale | RTX Traveler Magazine

With 51 golf courses located in Scottsdale’s city limits and an additional 156 courses in the surrounding area, it’s easy to see why desert golf is so popular here. Perhaps the only thing that can compete with golf as a top draw to Scottsdale is the healing and restorative power of the Sonoran Desert, which has translated to arguably more spas per capita than any other city in the country. Luckily for visitors, world-class golf courses and spas can often be found within a few steps of one another.

The Troon North Golf Club helped put desert golf on the map. Frequently found on “best of” lists in Golf Magazine and Golfweekly, pros and novices alike can take a swing at either the Pinncale Course or the Monument Course. Want to get the kids started on the green? The Kierland Golf Club’s SNAG Golf program teaches children the fundamentals of the sport using modified equipment and specialized instruction methods. The award-winning North and South Courses at The Boulders wind around and over the stunning rock formations for which the property is named. The Boulders also offers a Fore Ladies program for female first-timers.
