The Phoenician is an SPG Luxury Collection Hotel located in Scottsdale, Arizona right off of Camelback Mountain. Like a room at the Phoenician, a round of golf can get pricey. Summertime does provide guests with the opportunity to stay and play at a significant discount, a decision that I highly recommend.
The beauty of this golf club is second to none. It is divided into three 9 hole courses: Canyon Course, Oasis Course, and Desert Course. The Oasis Course is where I began and it’s more of a traditional golf course with houses along the side. The Canyon Course which I played as the sun was setting was breathtaking. I spent so much time taking pictures I struggled to complete the last two holes.
The Oasis Course
The Canyon Course
Cost: $40 for 18 & cart for Arizona residents. $200 in the winter.
Beer: $7 for foreign and domestic.
Cart: The cart had GPS and also provided warnings if you were entering restricted areas.
Ball Loss: I lost a few to the desert and the water.
Score: Happy day.
Favorite Hole: Canyon #7: Par 3: 188 Yards
Worst Hole: Canyon #8 and #9. It got too dark and that’s my excuse for losing the ball.
What makes it unique: It provides some of the best views of Phoenix in a tranquil, scenic setting. The course is so nice that those who do not golf go for walks on the grounds.
