Enjoying a drink in great company is the best way to relax after a round of golf. But sometimes you’ll find yourself at our clubhouse wishing a friend was here. For those occasions, we’ve got you covered. You can buy a drink for an absentee buddy and we’ll put it right up on our “Drinks Fore Friends” board. The next time they come in, they can redeem the drink. If they’re worthy of the friendship they will slap one on the board for you in return. Heads up: we remove listings from the board after 60 days, but they never expire. Your bartender will find your listing in the “Book of Shame!” Outing Menu.

THE CHAMPIONS COURSE AT TPC SCOTTSDALE
Rivaling its famous sister course in both beauty and playability, the Randy Heckenkemper-designed Champions Course offers an ideal desert golf experience. Built on the former site of TPC Scottsdale’s Desert Course, the layout was completely revamped in 2007 to flow seamlessly within the naturally rugged terrain, meandering between natural ravines and through picturesque foothills.
The course was crafted to balance strategy with design, so as not to favor any one type of play. Each hole can be played a multitude of ways – providing golfers of all skill levels with a challenging experience that can be significantly different each time they play. A quartet of challenging finishing holes adds an acclaimed ending stretch that promises to leave even the best players with goosebumps.

2021 VGA 4 ball foursome competition. Played March 3rd, 2021

At the Aguila Golf course on March 3rd, 2021, we played a 4 man team game with the 1st place team pictured below. The teams were paired by choosing an A, B, C, D player based on their current golf handicap index. The top 3 scores for each hole were used to determine the team’s handicapped score for that hole. Scores were totaled for 18 holes to determine the team’s total score. Used this format to replace the usual 4-ball contest. Great fun for all involved.
