Wednesday, December 7, 2022, Sun City CC (inc tax) Shotgun 8:00 AM $69.00. Tap here to get the course website.

Despite the typical Arizona climate, Sun City Country Club is not a typical desert-style course. Sun City Country Club is lined with large shade trees, a classic layout forcing accurate shots and good iron play. Our 18 hole course is as challenging as it is enjoyable.

Saturday, December 10, 2022, Ken McDonald (+) 9:45 AM $60.00. Tap here to get the course website.

Ken McDonald is one of the most active and reasonably priced 18 hole par 72 championship golf courses in the metropolitan Phoenix area with a full service restaurant and bar. The golf course was built in 1974 and designed by the famous local architect Jack Snyder. This 18-hole championship course provides an excellent round of golf for every skill level at an affordable price. This well-maintained course has been a favorite to Arizona golfers and is consistently ranked as one of the area’s top daily fee courses. The course, while flat, has well-placed hazards that provide a fun and challenging golf experience. Ken McDonald also hosts a fantastic program for junior golfers.

Wednesday, December 14, 2022, Legacy (+) 8:04 AM $76.00. Tap here to get the course website.

Legacy’s elite driving range and short game complex are open from sunrise to 30 minutes before sunset daily. The spacious driving range hosts golf balls provided by Srixon. Call the golf shop for more information! The short game complex is one of the most popular areas at the facility. With an extraordinarily large putting green consisting of four different levels and a dozen different holes to putt to, you will always find a new challenge to help you sharpen your game. A practice bunker accompanies a separate chipping and pitching green, allowing you to work on every shot needed from 40 yards and in. Bring some friends, and come out and enjoy practicing in this tranquil setting that is close to the Greenside Grill and Bar.
