Guys and Gals,



Thinking of 5 rounds in AZ next April 6-11 when the Masters 2016 is on ... (we usually do Miami area but may mix it up this year)



Who has some good recommendations for nice tracks that are not $200 + per round? Packages or ??



There would be 8 or 12 of us going and staying locally in a McMansion

    Southern dunes I would say is a must.

    well regardless of where you are staying I'm just gonna mention places in the Valley that are still good value for the buck during 2016 peak season. +1 on Southern Dunes, Legacy, Talking Stick, Long Bow, Papago, 500 Club, Raven at South Mountain, Whirlwind, ASU Karsten.

    Legacy is very nice as well like Kenny said. Obviously if you want to splurge on a round We Ko Pa is a great place.

    MHO... I thought Long Bow and ASU were not that good.

    MHO... I thought Long Bow and ASU were not that good.
    opinion noted. but in peak season to play a Pete Dye and Gary Panks golf course both still under $100 they are phenomenal value.



    p.s. 16,17,18 at Karsten hand you your a$$?

    thanks so far guys, I read thru the other thread but there was a lot of info and some of it was dated.

    Last updated 08/02/2015 I keep the op as up to date as I can based on what I have played recently, If it has not been changed that just means my opinion on the course or ranking still stands.



    With 2-3 foursomes coming it is going to be hard to impossible to take advantage of the discount sites like teeoff.com and golfnow hot deals etc.



    I would give my buddy David a call at Discount Tee Times tell him I sent you, he can usually hunt out a fair price for folks. That may be your best bet trying to get 2-3 groups off in a row.



    Southern Dunes imo a must play, Camelback Ambiente very good course and would be less than $200 You may be able to get a 36 hole special at wekopa that brings the cost per round below $200 as well. Grayhawk Raptor should be around $180 then Troon will prob be close to $200

    If your budget is $100-$200 a round it really wont be hard to find quality golf here that time of year. Southern Dunes should be less than $100 Ambiente in the $140 range. With a bit of a drive GC of Estrella and Verrado both sub $100 The only ones to really stretch the budget will be Wekopa,Troon North, Grayhawk, Availability not an issue so really should not need to rush out to book right now.



    I was playing a ton of high end golf with Isaacbm last winter leading up to the superbowl here in town. I think the most we paid was like $100 on a last minute deal at Troon. We went on a 4 week run of Wekopa, Troon, Sunridge (not worth it) and Quinterro all for less than $100

    Listen to this guy...he knows his stuff....



    IMO....Quintero and Troon Pinnacle are absolute MUST plays.....We Ko Pa Saguaro is a very close second (skip Cholla)....Camelback Ambiente and Southern Dune are right behind We Ko Pa.....Verrado and GC of Estrella.....lots of travel time between all these course...TPC champions works in a pinch too
