Ahwatukee Country Club is located in South Phoenix and features an 18-hole, Par 72 course. The course has a traditional layout that is mostly wide open, but there are out-of-bounds stakes on both sides of the house-lined fairways. There are water obstacles on several holes.
Gary Panks designed this 18-hole, par-60 executive course. This fun and challenging layout incorporates 44 bunkers with water coming into play on 13 of the 18 holes. Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Club is the host of the annual Arizona Golf Association's Short Course Championship and has been voted into the top 25 executive golf courses in the nation. Locals claim you will use every club in your bag, and the course is known for having some of the best greens in the valley.
As one of the most challenging Phoenix golf courses, the Phantom Horse Golf Club blends Arizonian desert target golf with traditional links.

The clubhouse provides a full-service golf shop, men and women's locker rooms and a restaurant with outdoor dining.

The Foothills Golf Club is a very scenic course. Basically a desert landscape set up against South Mountain, it stretches out to almost 7000 yards from the tips. Always in great condition, a good score here is one that is well deserved. The fairways are narrow, with a cut of rough and then desert ready to snatch any off-line shots. The greens vary in size, but most are well bunkered and some are elevated. The slopes are not that extreme on the greens, but the speed brings out the need to be careful out there. Conveniently located just 20 minutes south of the airport in Phoenix, The Foothills is a scenic and challenging play that is a good airport course at the beginning or end of your golf outing—or both for that matter!
The Rawhide Western Town is a replica of a 1880's old west town. There are a lot of amusing attractions here, like a live stunt show - gunfights, explosions and a lot of cowboy action - the petting zoo with miniature donkeys, goats, sheep and pigs - and the mechanical bull. For the adrenaline-addict the Rawhide zip line crosses from above the streets of the old western town, and is a real adventure. You can also ride in a wagon with trained mules thought the Sonoran Desert trails - just like the early pioneers did. Or take pictures dressed in an 1880's costume or in the jail. They also have plenty of restaurant options where they serve thick and succulents steaks and even rattlesnake. Rawhide Western Town is the place for a big fun day for the whole family!
