Scottsdale golf club DEMO DAY

Private golf clubs in Scottsdale hosted a multi-vendor demo day last Saturday, October 19th from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM.  Club manufacturers had their most recent products for you to try and compare against others utilizing Trackman and other launch monitors at Scottsdale golf club.
“THE HORSESHOE” opening has been delayed to give the greens at  Scottsdale golf club more time to grow and mature to the point they are ready for play.  We hope to have it ready by early November.  The greens received some late monsoon damage and golf course maintenance is doing their best to get them fully recovered before we open it.  Private golf clubs in Scottsdale will keep you informed when it will open. The recent schedule for it called for the practice park at Scottsdale golf club to close last Wednesday and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 PM, thus making the Horseshoe available for play at 3:00 PM.  Electric golf carts will not be permitted as it is a walking only park at 816 yards.

Private golf clubs in Scottsdale recently had the Scottsdale private golf courses rated by the AGA team with minimal change to the slope and course rating. We will be sharing them with you before we reopen as we are now finalizing the changes.
Many golfers at Private golf clubs in Scottsdale have asked for a shorter set of tees so we created an additional set at about 3800 yards called gold tees.  They will have a gold yardage plaque on every hole.  The Scottsdale golf club Gold Tee has been rated by the AGA Team and scorecards are currently being made.  Please ask the staff for course hole by hole yardages.
As we wind down the year, it was as active as any year at  Private golf clubs in Scottsdale and we are pleased with the support and participation of all of our tournaments and championships.  We have to be careful so as not to saturate the starting times with events. Scottsdale golf club will  continue to look at the best events and times, and free up starting times for those who choose not to participate in them.

Scottsdale Private golf courses Golf carts and Pushcarts

Scottsdale golf club has entered into a new 3 year golf cart lease with Club Car and they arrived this past week. They have the latest technology to include USB charging ports in addition to Bluetooth compatible speakers which are now standard features in all carts at Scottsdale Private golf courses.


Scottsdale Private golf courses has purchased additional push carts this year that will be available at the start of the season. Once again we ask those who use them to keep the push carts away from the Private golf clubs in Scottsdale greens, collars and approaches, not crossing or parking on tees, including the practice tees and short game areas. During this summer at Scottsdale golf club we widened and cleared many of the walking paths around the course for your convenience.

We ask as a courtesy to all Scottsdale Private golf course golfers, and to be in compliance with the USGA rules and guidelines, that all golfers at Scottsdale golf club display proper etiquette and conduct themselves “In the spirit of the game.” We are recommending when you are playing music through the cart speakers, that level two on the volume control is the maximum setting as it is sufficient and will not interrupt the others playing in your group. The USGA specifically points out in 4.3A in the rule book that it allows audio and video to be used but to show integrity and consideration to others. There might be competitions where the tournament committee has the right and privilege to prohibit the use of such audio and video equipment.

Golf Instruction at Scottsdale Private golf courses

With all the requests for new and better golf instruction programs we’ve been receiving, it’s been our mission to revamp our entire lesson at Scottsdale Private golf courses programs over the summer.  We’ve adopted golf instruction software called Operation 36 which incorporates playing as a major component of the lesson program.  This program will also allow us to track our Scottsdale golf club student’s progress, to help us objectively see improvement, and provide drills and practice plans over a phone app interface. 

Starting with the juniors… On Tuesday, October 15th at 4:30 PM in the Ranch House, we will have a junior golf orientation for Scottsdale golf club juniors and parents of juniors between the ages of 6-15.  Our goal is to break down the curriculum and new structure of our junior program.  We would like to answer any questions or concerns you may have about our young golfers at Scottsdale golf club.   This season we want to have fun and create as many new golfers as possible and grow the game that we love at Scottsdale Private golf courses.

The ladies’ clinics at  Scottsdale Private golf courses will continue and will also adopt our Operation 36 programming.  In the past, our clinics have been structured the same year to year.  This year, in an effort to significantly improve our Scottsdale golf club players, we want to track our progress and lower your scores.  This will take work from both ends, but we promise that if you commit to us, we will commit to you! 

Beginner ladies’ at  private golf clubs in Scottsdale will continue on Mondays at 1:00 PM.  This is open to all ladies, whether you play golf or not.  This clinic is geared to be fun and not only teach you the fundamentals of the swing and short game, but also lower your scores through course management.  Operation 36 will play a big role in these clinics and on-course play.  Whether playing on the Horseshoe or Scottsdale golf club big course, it will assist in tracking your progress.

Advanced ladies’ clinics will be on Wednesdays at 1:00 PM and will still be a clinic style set-up with programming that will incorporate practice drills and games to help everyone learn to improve their game with us or on their own.

Scottsdale Private golf courses is adding new men’s clinics and beginner clinics open to all, on alternating Saturdays at 10:00 AM.   This will involve clinic style set-up as well as practice and drills.  We want to set you up for success and track your progress along the way. 

Golf fitness is coming back once again as we have been working hard with our Health and Fitness Director, Danielle Fryer, to improve our training programs.  This schedule will come out shortly.  We think of ourselves as your team and together we will improve your swing by improving how your body moves.
