The Phoenician Resort

3+ (3 gold): one of our top-rated 3-star courses, worthy of 3½ stars.
   The Phoenician Resort Est. 1988

Where2Golf says: 

The Phoenician Resort, located in the lee of rugged Camelback Mountain, is home to a well-regarded championship golf course. In 2017, having sold a parcel of land for housing development, the course embarked on a major transition, reducing its former 27-hole layout to 18-holes.

Contoured out of the surrounding Sonoran Desert, The Phoenician's desert and resort-style layout includes wonderful desert and mountain views, as well as Arizona’s only sand-island green. Based on the former 27-hole layout, the Desert-nine was best known for its dramatic elevation changes and wonderful scenery; the most requested course due to its unique layout. The Oasis-nine incorporates tree-lined fairways and tranquil but threatening water features. Located on the southern slope of Camelback Mountain, the Canyon-nine offers sweeping views of the Valley of the Sun (the Phoenix metropolitan area).

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
