It has been a long 14 months at the best golf course in Scottsdale since Covid was at the center of most topics and conversations at the club, and as of now, I can say there are other things to talk about, places to go, wearing a mask or not, and just a refreshing time in general.
My crystal ball in my office worked overtime like no other period in my career, but we made it through and are believably headed to a better life than we had before with a greater appreciation for what we have been gifted.
Sure, it was challenging at times to get a starting time at the best golf course in Scottsdale. If that is the worst that happens to our day, we had a great one.
On a positive note, we watched many more people pick up the game at the best golf course in Scottsdale for the first time and others played more golf than ever in their life.
Our hope is that the new players show a passion for the game at Scottsdale golf club and bring others into it as well, for as we know, it is a game for a lifetime, just ask Phil Mickelson who won the PGA Major Championship this past weekend. Knowing Phil as well as I have since he was a freshman at ASU, he was and continues to be one of the most positive golfers I have ever been around; he plays without fear.
As of this week, the Scottsdale golf courses is as available, playing under 60 players each day as of this week, which opens up time for many. As we head into the Summer months, we should start to see our junior golfers coming to the club for some instruction and competition.
Our Junior camps and competitions start the first week in June so please sign up on Foretees, as space is limited.

HOURS OF OPERATION:
As has been the case for years at many private clubs, our golf shop hours are 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. through overseeding. We ask that carts are returned to the cart area by 7 p.m.
The practice park will be open until 6 p.m. all days except Tuesdays and Sundays when we close at 2 p.m. to open the Horseshoe at 3 p.m. A reminder is that walking is the only way to get around the Horseshoe and it takes about 1 hour to play it.
What a fun way to spend the afternoon with your family.
