Golf Courses You Haven't Thought About

Not to be missed. A great championship length golf course that won't break the bank. Home to Arizona State's golf program. Great patio bar and restaurant to catch a sunset post round. My personal home course.

This short course is an absolute blast. Whether you are new to the game or a scratch golfer, you'll have a great time playing here. Spectacular views of Camelback during the round.

Hiking Nearby

My #1 activity in the city. Just a 5 minute drive from the condo. Amazing 360 degree views of the city. The Echo Canyon trail is rated as a moderate to difficult hike. Don't attempt this without proper shoes and be sure to bring plenty of water and sun protection. Those not interested in a full hike can still walk around the base of the trail and enjoy some great views of the mountain.

Another fantastic hike just a short drive from the condo, but more moderate than Camelback. No shortage of beautiful scenery. Still be sure to wear proper shoes and bring plenty of water and sun protection.
