Awarded with Golf Digest's Best Places to Play in 2006, 2007, and 2008, Crooked Tree Golf Course is distinguished for its beautiful surroundings in the Sonoran Desert that lends its landscape features into immaculate course play. The design team of PGA Hall of Famer Lee Trevino and Dave Bennett sculpted the course in 1977, orchestrating an 18-hole layout that cleaves through indigenous groves of ironwood trees, mesquite plants, and saguaro cacti. As golfers take aim at small, contoured greens, they can take comfort in the lack of nearby homes that might otherwise provide tumbleweeds with a place to hide before knocking putts off-course.
At The Practice Tee Golf Academy, certified golf guru Bobby Saavedra supplies golfers of all skill levels with tips, tricks, and tools to help lower scores and boost course performance. Saavedra imparts his club-wielding wisdom in three private one-hour sessions set against a backdrop of sprawling Arizona desert. Adopting a custom-fit teaching methodology, Saavedra establishes each student’s goals, then crafts lessons based on individual swing style, range of motion, and aptitude for matching argyle patterns. The program shows golfers simple ways to tweak their strokes, possibly yielding more consistent ball contact, control, and an increase in ball-lobbing distance. After stitching up sinister slices and straightening rusty hooks, swingers-in-training can kick back with a complimentary DVD that allows them to witness the transformation of their swing from lesson to lesson as well as a montage of baby-sloth shenanigans.

The Wildcat Trail is a network of well-maintained golf courses that take advantage of Arizona's sprawling and scenic landscapes.

Arizona National Golf Club, which was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., provides expansive views of the Santa Catalina Mountains, and The Golf Club at Vistoso⎯named a Best Public Course in Tucson⎯boasts a 4.5-star rating from Golf Digest. The Wildcat Trail's staff are happy to facilitate vacation planning to area courses or assist with event planning for as many as 288 golfers.
Each of the 18 fairways at Haven Golf Course presents golfers with a lush Bermuda-grass oasis in which to craft artful divots as they traverse the par-72 track. The Arthur Jack Snyder, ASGCA design leads playing groups along 6,905 yards of the Green Valley, clustering around a large elongated lake on one side and wrapping around several residential blocks on the other. Prior to embarking on their expedition, groups can warm up at the practice facility, complete with grass tees that mimic on-course lies.
Adjacent to the main championship course lies Haven's Tortuga Golf Course, a short par-3 course with holes that measure between 50 and 90 yards. This shrunken jaunt presents beginning golfers with an easy place to take up the game and more experienced golfers a place to practice air strumming their putter.
