  1. Legend Trail is very solid, certainly in league with Boulders South - Legend Trail is overall a better design, but doesn't have the boulders look or the Boulders Resort vibe. Dove Valley - pick a different course. Awful design, conditions often suspect.
  2. 3 weeks after overseed anywhere is still going to give you shaggy conditions and CPO or just after CPO. Everyone will tell you to avoid Rancho Manana, but for a 17 cap you might enjoy the views and find it a (good) memorable experience.
  3. Check Legend Trail, Longbow. Good courses challenging enough for lower handicaps and easy enough for high. Probably will be $200 or so. Legend Trail is more scenic and in N Scottsdale so I would favor it.
  4. There’s a solution for that problem but it’s very expensive.
  5. In Florida, you always have the chance of significant rain (also applies to NC/Pinehurst). For a short trip, a washout would be a huge bummer. In AZ, almost zero chance of rain. Florida, especially Streamsong, has very little going for it in the food/drink/nightlife category, if those things mean anything to you, while Scottsdale is a non-golf destination as well as a golf destination and has those in abundance. For courses in AZ, Southern Dunes and Wekopa stand out, and you could do 36 at Southern Dunes probably with a decent replay rate. Grayhawk is a great facility for 36, but the courses themselves are a bit bland and arguably not worth the premium. Sunridge Canyon is awful in every way except views, Eagle Mountain is always in suspect shape and they have completely lost the course to a fungus at the moment. Legacy and Raven are not destination courses in any way,shape, or form. Talking Stick courses are relatively boring - destination courses that shouldn't be. 2 under the radar courses not mentioned yet are Legend Trail and Verde River Golf & Social, layouts are really really good, they are mid tier in terms of price, both with great views and not far out of Scottsdale proper. No one has mentioned Troon North, which is top tier for both course layouts (36 holes) but also for price, much better courses than Grayhawk but the facility isn't as good for a 36 hole day. Wickenburg Ranch and Quintero could be done as a 36 hole day but it would be a very long day with the drive(s).
  6. It's Florida. Unless you play Streamsong or Black Diamond Ranch or something on big water you aren't getting scenic views.
  7. The par 3s are long but not particularly interesting.
  8. Just one more contributor to the overwatering soggy conditions. Arizona is a desert. But here's some courses you should strongly consider: Arizona Grand, Western Skies, Coyote Lakes.
  9. Painting golf courses is bizarre. I prefer my women without makeup. If they need makeup, not interested.
  10. Well I wasn't a fan, for no particular reason than I hate that all sports are going to the big guys. But it's gonna happen, and you can't really blame the big guys. Plus he appears very well liked among his peers, which is a pretty good sign for anyone. If all he cares about is majors, well he's doing pretty well with that, and that's been Tiger's mantra since he was 2.
  11. SIM driver, 3 wood, 19*, 22*, 25*, 28*, 7-SW Cally SuperHybrid 17* Resisting 2 ball Triple Track, but there's zero chance I won't get one...
  12. Well, Apache Stronghold is a fantastic course layout wise, conditions always in doubt, and unless you want to spend your nights at what appears to be a mediocre casino you won't have anything else to do, truly middle of nowhere.
  13. I would add that although the vibe is family friendly, they do a good job with separating pools so there are kids/adult areas.
