Corte Bella Golf Club's classic layout provides an escape from the ubiquitous forced carries and target greens found in traditional desert golf. It's also a course that's easy on the eyes: Lush ficus, Italian cypress, oleander and other exotic flora line the Bermuda grass fairways, with water coming into play on three holes. Inspired by classic golf architecture, this Greg Nash designed course rewards the thinking player, whether playing from the 7,011 yard championship tees or from as close in as the 5,095 yard front tees. Drive placement is critical in the wide but well-bunkered fairways, while well-defended, tightly mowed Tifeagle greens put a premium on accurate approach shots and a steady putting stroke.
Boasting a regulation NHL sized skating rink, Polar Ice is actually an arena comprised of two skating rinks. For those who harbor dreams of making it to the NHL one day, ice skating and hockey lessons are available. There is also an arcade for your little ones. Families frequent Polar Ice for public skating, which is offered daily and includes skate rentals in the cost of admission.
With mature trees, rolling terrain and spectacular mountain views, Arizona Traditions Golf Club typifies a classic park-like setting. This spectacular par-70 by Dick Bailey does a wonderful job of blending traditional style golf where fairways are adjacent to each other, while still interacting with the desert surroundings. The golf course feels expansive and comfortable for beginners, yet its strategic bunkering and undulating greens provide a challenge to test accomplished players. As an In Celebration of Golf Management facility, this is one of the most unique golf courses in the valley and is sure to fulfill every golfer's passion for the game. The 4,000-square foot golf shop highlights an excellent inventory of golf apparel as well as golf-themed art and furnishings.
Out in the desert plains with not too many houses around (yet), this Gary Panks designed course provides a challenge with some pretty tight fairways and some formidable desert clears. Trilogy Vistancia provides an open look with the mountains in the far background while its long, tall, distinctive native grasses, make it anything but a spray-it-anywhere play. Just a few months ago, Trilogy Vistancia was one of the great hidden finds in Phoenix-Scottsdale area golf. The secret's out though, with it being rated a 25 out of 30 in the new Zagat public survey of America's Top Courses. That's the same rating the vaunted, PGA Tour-site TPC Scottsdale received. It's no stretch to argue that Trilogy Vistancia actually offers the better of the two playing experience values, reputations aside. Opens daily at 6am. Check website for more.
Located in Glendale, Arizona, The Legend at Arrowhead golf course is an Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay-designed golf course that is traditional in style.

The course is beautiful, and all of the holes, with the exception of one, have sand bunkers on the fairways or around the greens. Although water is a hazard on nine holes, most fairways offer generous landing areas. Opens at 6a.

Pizza Hut supplies the snacks and drinks. Holiday and party packages are available for the kids. Note that socks are required for soft-play.
