“The fairways are wide enough so that the intelligent average golfer can play it well. The average golfer must become a more intelligent player to challenge the course successfully. And the course is one that a woman will find manageable and pleasant. ”

So says Jack Nicklaus about Desert Highlands golf course, the course he built in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is just one of the great golf courses you can enjoy with any of the Scottsdale golf vacations you can take at any time of the year. Just think . . . as much golf as you can imagine, fabulous hotels at great prices, unbelievable food . . and the sunshine. What sunshine! Absolutely fabulous for your family and just great for your golf.

Desert Target Golf Courses Are A Unique Challenge

If you want to try “target golf", Scottsdale is the place for you. There is a maximum to the amount of turf allowed on the course, and what is allowed is used well. It is different to what you are used to and a challenge you will love. The cactus and giant saguaros are straight out of a John Ford western, and add to the uniqueness of this type of golf vacation.

The scenery is fantastic and the golf courses are beautiful, all 200 of them, and during the summer you can play for less than $30 with cart provided. How’s that for value? The Robb Report named Scottsdale America's best place to live for golf, so it must make for a great golf vacation. Downtown Scottsdale is rapidly expanding with luxury boutique hotels and great eating places, and if you want a taste of desert golf, Scottsdale golf vacations offer everything you could ever wish for.

Book Early For A Golf Vacation Offering Great Shopping Experiences

In addition to all of the private golf clubs there are lots of public golf courses but even these have to be booked well in advance. So, if you are planning a golf vacation in Scottsdale , you are well advised to book your tee times in advance. This will be arranged for you by specialized golf vacation travel agents, or you can see to it yourself by booking your Scottsdale vacation on the internet.

In addition to golf, Scottsdale offers lots of craft shops, boutiques, top class shops such as Tiffany’s and over fifteen shopping malls offering retailers such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci. The shopping is great for families, the food is fantastic and you get the unique experience of desert golf.

Can you really call yourself an all round golfer without mastering the challenges that a typical desert target golf course offers? I think not.
