Designed by Pete Dye, the golf course at Red Mountain Ranch Country Club boasts 6,653 yards of fairway portioned into 18 picturesque holes. Twosomes can rev up golf carts and dart down paths on a competitive quest to out-thwack opponents on the course and out-swim them in the water hazards. Scenic views of the valley and mountains surround the open landscape, which is accented with Scottish mounding and hazards such as the 11th hole's watery expanse and the 4th hole's sand bunkers.
The club also equips par-minded pairs with an arsenal of golf balls to shoot across the driving range toward their original homes in the core of the sun. Following the 18th hole, golfers can hit the Player's Grille to nosh on eats such as a half-pound burger ($9.95) or a delectable deli sandwich ($7.75).
