Arizona Golf Courses:

Although most of Arizona is considered a desert, not all Arizona golf courses are surrounded by spectacular native desert with elevation changes and views that create feelings of awe for golfers fortunate enough to visit. Two of Arizona’s best desert courses include Rancho Mañana Golf Club in Cave Creek and the Boulders Resort in Carefree. Each provide true desert golf experiences for players that want to challenge what Mother Nature has created.

Rancho Mañana’s tag line is “An Experience that Truly Represents Golf in the Arizona Desert” and it couldn’t be more accurate. With plenty of elevation change and views of the entire valley from a number of holes on the front nine and equally impressive views of mountains to the north on the back, the course is almost completely surrounded by unspoiled natural desert terrain and extraordinary beauty.
Rancho’s recent accolades include “Top Ten Courses” in Arizona by Ranking Arizona and Golf Digest’s “Top 50” in the country for women.

The Boulders Resort includes two award winning courses both designed by Jay Morrish. The courses are considered among the most demanding in the Southwest and are known for their rugged beauty as well. Eash has been honored with numerous awards from some of the nation's top publications including GOLF Magazine and Golf Digest”
