It’s Always Sunny in Phoenix
Winter is coming for much of the country and so is that dreaded time when the clubs are stowed away and the next warm spring day and first round of the season is dreamed about nightly.
But golf during the cold months doesn’t have to be a dream, you just have to find the right place to play. Hello to the wonderful golf courses in Phoenix!
The average temperature from December thru February ranges from 66-71 degrees, perfect for forgetting about winter and squeezing in another couple of birdies before calling it a season.
Phoenix also offers a variety of things to do off the course that will make your golf getaway feel like a real vacation. Go for a hot air balloon ride to see the gorgeous landscape from a breathtaking view, or head up to Camelback Mountain for a hike.
But we know what you’re really headed to Phoenix for at this time of year are the weather and the golf. So, while you’re there, consider teeing it up at these three great local tracks, all available on GolfNow for as low as $29.
