Golf Course Itinerary:
Ocotillo Golf Club
Friday, April 29, 2022
Afternoon Round, 2:30 pm
Water water everywhere and not a single cactus to see. At first glance, you may think you have fallen victim to a desert mirage while playing at the Ocotillo Golf Club. Although the word ocotillo means cactus branch, you won’t see a cactus or a mountain peak at this golf course located in Chandler, Arizona. Ocotillo is not for golfers seeking a pure desert golf experience. Ocotillo is a vacation from the desert, with its luscious rolling fairways and abundance of crystal blue water.
The drive up to the clubhouse is a foreshadowing of the round that awaits you. The signature hole is showcased on the right side as you enter the clubhouse. Sparkling water runs along the entire left side of the emerald fairway as it is fed by gigantic green-side cascading waterfalls
Managed by Troon Golf, Ocotillo Golf Resort adheres to the highest standards of course conditions, customer service, and amenities, creating a country club experience at what has become known as one of the nation’s finest daily-fee facilities. The landscape throughout the 27 Hole Ted Robinson design is full of soothing rich greens and deep blues. Using many of his well-known trademarks in the creation of this masterpiece, Ocotillo is a panorama of cascading waterfalls, palm trees, gently rolling fairways and brightly colored flowerbeds that have been blended into a remarkable golfer’s paradise. This truly superb 27 hole championship facility, is now located only minutes from most of the Valley’s prominent resorts and hotels via the newly opened 101 Price Freeway. Ocotillo Golf Resort’s golf shop has been voted as one of the “Top 100 Golf Shop in the country”. For after golf dining, guests can enjoy the casual club bar or the more luxurious atmosphere of Bernard’s Restaurant. Private parties can choose between the newly added indoor-outdoor Crown Terrace Ballroom for hundreds of guests or the more intimate Director’s room for up to 35.
Ocotillo Golf Club’s 27 hole layout (3 separate nines) winds through 95 acres, including 7 miles of shoreline, lakes and cascading water features. Fully mature trees, lush landscaping, and colorful flowerbeds contribute significantly to the comfort, beauty, and challenge of this elegant Arizona Oasis. Unique among all others in the Valley, Ocotillo is a lushly landscaped retreat with superbly maintained grounds and broad rolling fairways that provide golfers with a refreshing change of pace from the desert-style golf where target fairways are almost always surrounded by unforgiving rocks and cacti.
At Ocotillo the biggest challenge is keeping your ball out of the lakes (water comes into play on 24 of its 27 holes). There are island fairways, island greens, and even a hole offering both. The big hitters can be aggressive as long as they are straight. You do not have to lay-up, but must be vigilant of water on the sides of the fairways and greens. When you keep the ball dry you are still faced with the challenge of staying out of the 170 strategically placed sand bunkers.
The next challenge is negotiating the subtly contoured greens. Smart course management along with solid contact and pinpoint accuracy will minimize the challenges and allow for an enjoyable day of golf. Recognized by many as the “Crown Jewel of Arizona Golf” this four-star course was designed in 1986 by Ted Robinson who is a master at maximizing the impact of water as a decorative and strategic design feature. Robinson feels that Ocotillo is the brightest star in his worldwide portfolio that includes Koo Olin Golf Club in Oahu, Hawaii, Mariott Desert Springs Golf Resort in Palm Desert, CA, and the Phoenician Golf course in Phoenix. Golfers have similar opinions to Robinson on the outcome of his course design, with Golf Digest’s Reader’s Poll voting Ocotillo as one of the must-play courses.
Signature Holes: Collectively, the golf holes flow as naturally as a page-turning novel, yet each one of the nine possesses its own true standout. On the blue course, that distinction goes to the 404-yard 8th hole. The tee shot on this par 4 requires a 200-yard carry over water. A pond flanks the entire right side and intersects the landing area 100 yards from the green. Two sprawling bunkers consume the left side. A good drive will leave you a mid-iron approach over water to an elevated three-tiered green that is a mere 29 yards deep. The putting surface has an expansive sand trap in front and a steep-faced bunker carved from the rearward mounding.
The Gold course’s 8th hole is its signature, a 172-yard par 3. Deceptively difficult, the elevated tee provides an upfront and honest account of the obstacles before you. The shot is a mid to long iron over water which also hugs the right side. Three cavernous bunkers triangulate the landing area front, left, and right. The green is set before a backdrop of a dozen assorted trees. The bell-shaped putting surface, 31 paces deep, slopes severely making for slippery downhill putts.
The signature hole of the entire golf course goes to the par 4, 332 yards, 4th hole on the white course. It requires a tee shot over a lagoon to a generous peninsula of a fairway. A bridge to the landing area is decked in annuals adding to the aesthetic nourishment. Two large fairway bunkers act as sentinels to both the left and right sides of the velvety target. The three-tiered green is set on the far side of the lagoon at the base of a large mound. Two medium-sized traps sit on the left. A rock waterfall featuring a floral pattern of Augusta national proportions flows from the left of the green into the lagoon and no fewer than 30 towering palm trees frame the hole.
Eagle Mountain Golf Course
Saturday, April 30, 2022
Morning Tee Time, 8:00 am
Scott Miller’s design perfectly utilizes the abrupt changes in elevation provided by nature as opportunities for challenging tee placements. Eagle Mountain offers spectacular views of Red Mountain, Camelback Mountain and the Four Peaks. The course is full of desert terrain: box canyons, rock washes, lush valleys, and extreme elevation changes are all part of the experience. Adding interest, are lakes that are in play on holes 10 and 18. The Golf Club at Eagle Mountain takes advantage of a variety of land features, including rolling hills, ridgelines, lush valleys and washes, and features a backdrop of prominent mountain outcroppings.
This course was designed with every level of golfer in mind. Eagle Mountain is a favorite among couples and women. From the tips the course plays fairly long even for the highly skilled golfer and yet it is very playable with wide and forgiving fairways. The course is known for its spacious landing areas and often welcomes containment slopes and moun- ding that help keep most errant shots in play. The greens are large, lightning quick, have many subtle mounds that will challenge any golfer, and are very difficult to read because of the continued elevation changes throughout the mountainous area. Eagle Mountain is an innovative departure from the very difficult “target” style courses, such as SunRidge Canyon, GrayHawk and Troon North, which do not allow for any errant shots. The play- ability of the course along with the breathtaking views will allow you to leave with a big smile of satisfaction on your face.
Las Sendas Golf Course
Sunday, May 1, 2022
Morning Tee time, 8:00 am
Robert Trent Jones Jr. has designed a desert testing site for your “A” game. Hidden in the shadows on the White Tank Mountains, Las Sendas Golf Club in Mesa has one of the highest slope ratings for a public course in the country and highest slope rating in Arizona. This secluded desert course possesses a calm beauty that can be deceiving. The prescription for success: Drive it both straight and long from the tee. Repeat with a long iron to reach the green. Elevated tee boxes, overlooking lush expanses of rolling turf, dotted with sand bunkers and surrounding bent grass greens lie virtually unnoticed amid the granite topography. The fairways move considerably through the natural lay of the land and by the constructed contours and swales that often mark Robert Trent Jones Jr. designs. Keeping the ball in play presents less of a problem than correctly negotiating his bunkering and intended strategies.
Las Sendas is not a course contrived with artifice, decor, or railroad ties, nor is it a target course. It is a strategic course, so learn the preferred route from tee to green. It is also a Wild West Course, and you’d better bring your six-gun, because you’re going to have to shoot it here. Las Sendas’ spectacular views of the Phoenix metropolis help soften the demand of managing your game through the rugged terrain, nearly 1800 feet above the desert floor. This high desert course, built in 1995 features enough variety of terrain to challenge the most experienced golfer. Las Sendas requires you to think your way around to play it well. Here, old foxes can outwit young limberbacks. Just hitting the ball will not be enough. You must favor the correct sides of the immaculate fairways to obtain the best angles to the greens. Las Sendas is a second shot golf course with demands on power and accuracy. The greens are fast, large, undulating, elevated and subtle. However, be very precise when you read the break to avoid slipping past the hole, as the land mostly falls toward the southwest and the grass grows toward the setting sun.
Quote, from the designer, Robert Trent Jones Jr. “Las Sendas is not a golf course through the desert or planted on a desert. It is a golf course in the desert. It is a course which attracts you with its beauty and challenges you with its shot options. You’d better bring your six-gun. You’re going to have to shoot here!”
Sunridge Canyon Golf Course
Monday, May 2, 2022
Morning Tee time, 8:00 am
Hidden among the desert ridges and canyons of the McDowell Mountains in Fountain Hills, the golf adventure begins at the upper mouth of a yawning canyon and descends switchback style to the valley floor. The rhythm of the game, the sequencing of the par 3’s, 4’s and 5’s, the varying degrees of difficulty and the way the golf course gently shifts direction are as much a part of the ebb and flow of the desert as are the change of seasons and the passage of clouds in the sky. The views are awe-inspiring. The solitude profound – the golfer sees no other hole then the one they are playing.
Golf at SunRidge Canyon is the way the game was intended – natural, mysterious, and tempting. Things are not always as they first appear. Subtle changes in topography can have a dramatic effect. Each shot demands careful consideration of both the risk and the reward. Your success depends upon how skillfully you make these decisions. Adding to the intrigue of SunRidge Canyon is the unique way the golf course has of inviting you in and then surrounding you with its beauty and drama. Here you will be drawn into the heart of the desert, playing on lush fairways hidden between steep canyon walls. Aiming at greens defined by age-old stands of mesquite, ironwood and palo verde trees and skirting shaded arroyos that team with wildlife and claim errant shots as their own. It is an intimate setting sheltered from other players and the distractions of the outside world, giving you the opportunity to truly feel as one with the golf course. Canyon walls surround many holes, providing a sense of seclusion that soothes the mind and focuses concentration. Elevated tees offer spectacular views as well as difficult club selections. Patience is definitely a virtue – savor the gorgeous scenery and play within yourself.
