TOP SCOTTSDALE GOLF COURSES

The weather is cooling off and friends from the frozen east will be visiting, that means golf is going to be more fun than ever. We have some beautiful courses in our own backyard. Here are the top picks by me and USA Today.

1) TROON NORTH GOLF CLUB
Troon North Golf Club is known as Scottsdale’s “crown jewel.” Pinnacle Peak overlooks the two 18-hole courses — Monument and Pinnacle — that wind through scenic foothills and natural ravines. The course is famous for its ambiance, natural terrain and beauty. The fairways are immaculately groomed. http://www.troonnorthgolf.com/
