That's how I feel about the Carolinas--never golfed there.

As a faithful reader and golf addict, I can testify to Scottsdale's attraction for golf trips. My buddies and I have traveled to Scottsdale many times (mainly during the hot summer months as the green fees are reduced to basically pennies)and can attest to the great courses available for Pros to beginners alike. One course you failed to mention (or probably will in future articles) is the Talking Stick facility which boasts two great courses, the North & South Courses, designed by the Coore/Crenshaw team. We return every time to this area due to the great customer service (their Proshop is always in the Top 100), great practice facilities and of course, terrific courses. My favorite is the North Course, a serene, yet tough Par 70 with demanding Par 4s, long Par 3s and slightly elevated greens. Of course, when played from the appropriate tee boxes, even beginners can enjoy this course. The South course is more of a traditional course with tree-lined fairways and water hazards. Which ever course one chooses, they will find that you get a very tranquil, almost eerie feeling that no one else is out there with you (BTW, no homes are seen or built on these courses). Enjoy!

God Bless,
Tulsa, OK

I recently went out with buddies to Scottsdale. We played 36 at Talking Stick and then 36 at Wekopa. Played all four courses. I loved Talking Stick...until we played Wekopa. The views, dramatic holes, etc at Wekopa were incredible in my opinion.

Thanks for the review Brandon.
