Desert Forest Golf Club -- It Hurts so Good
Review by: Michael Beronja Desert Forest is the finest natural golf course in the West. It is not for every golfer. Those that typically hit the ball directly at the pins will find that this does not work. In the winter the greens are hard and fast. Anything hit onto the green without proper spin or placement will not hold or run off the back or sides. The greens are typically as fast as Augusta. The members take great delight in having a 5 handicap snowbird come out and not break 100. This is like making love to a 400 pound women "it hurts so good". You love how this course plays as it eats you up. Leave the driver in the bag for the majority of the holes. The course is not long but accuracy is so important. The members play everything as it lies so if you miss the fairway and rough you are looking a double boggy at best. This is a great course without equals.

TPC at Scottsdale - Stadium Course -- Expensive but When in Rome....
Review by: Y.F. Lara My first trip to Arizona, a couples trip, included a one day stay in Scottsdale before heading up to Sedona. My golf buddy and I figured it'd be a great opportunity to hit up the famed TPC (while the wives hit the Spas and the stores). We thought about it twice after we found out that our 6:59 tee time would cost $200 per man. I'm glad that we decided to play because it was the first time that I broke 100 (95) - I had only gotten out to a course 4 times before so I was thrilled. Beware of the CROWS they will fly into your cart and fly away with your sandwiches or granola bars. As you would expect, the course is extremely well maintained and the staff is very professional. The clubhouse is comfortable, relaxing and welcoming, they will polish your shoes after you play, and you will have access to your own locker which is great if you want to shower after you play (saves you time if you're going to lunch after your round). This is the same course where in 1999 Phoenix Open Tiger Woods got help from the gallery on the 585 yard 13th, to move a boulder so he can take a direct shot from the desert and help him reach the green in two.
