    Re: What are your top three courses to play in PHX area?

    Love Troon and Boulders .. always in awesome shape. Quintero if you want a short drive into the country... it's a very unique course. TPC was fun to play but it was my least favorite of the bunch.

      WeKoPa - both.

      THEN by a fair margin:

      Quintero
      Troon North

        Long time ago I played Karsten at ASU and remember it being very nice.

            In order
            1. Quinterro
            2. Verrado
            3. Boulders
            4. Troon North
            5. We Ko Pa Saguaro
            6. gold Canyon -Dinosaur Mountain
            7.Southern Dunes


            I'm editing this as I just saw you are going in February. Unfortunately , prices are insane that time of year. The locals refuse to play the jacked up tourist winter prices.

            I suspect that you are looking at $200 plus US to play any of the ones I listed above. Verrado and Southern Dunes might be a bit less as they are a bit of a drive. Fall prices when I go are 1/4 -1/3 less.
            If budget isn't a concern, they are all very worthy plays.

            If budget is a concern look to courses a hit further out or a notch down. When I went one winter we played Poston Butte( really nice Troon course) , Johnson Ranch , Western Skies, Lone Tree , Papago. none were more than $75.

            I played Grand Canyon University just off the plane in September , it's not in same league at all as the listed courses but still a good track, I think he said winter rates would be $50-$60

              Mid price in season (Feb-Mar)
              Verrado
              McDowell Mountain
              Estrella

              Once the price is over $100.00 it isn't worth it to me so consider my cheapness factor.

                We are snow birds in AZ. and have played these. Our top 3 choices.
                Quintero, Verrado and Wigwam-Gold course.
                Gone golfin' ... be back about dark-thirty.
