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.
A former junior-college All-American and U.S. Amateur qualifier, PGA-certified professional Denny Alberts draws from 20 years experience of teaching and playing to foster improved swings and lowered scores for his clients. Denny begins each hour-long lesson by videotaping his pupils as they swing, using a camera capable of capturing 1200 frames per second and suspected of stealing the souls of gullible nine irons. With the help of slow-motion review, Denny pinpoints any swing deficiencies and begins the arduous process of correcting bad habits and retraining muscles through swing drills, teaching aids, and his own internal encyclopedia of hard-won swing wisdom. Informed by the notion that an effective golf swing takes thousands of forms, Denny seldom attempts to reconstruct swings completely, but rather focuses on correcting the things that matter, such as ball contact, stance, and proper club-whispering techniques.
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.
