Overseeding occurs at many Scottsdale golf courses during months of September and October. This is a process of cutting down the summer grass and re-seeding with a winter blend - often Rye grass. It usually takes 2-3 weeks and closes the courses during the process. During the first week or two after opening from overseeding, the grass tends to look really good but can be a little thinner and wetter than normal but with perfect Fall weather, the golf is still very enjoyable. Fall golf weather in Arizona is one of best anywhere. Greens are also a little slower for the first few weeks as well.
Temperatures usually rise into the 80s during the fall making golf very enjoyable but the days start to get shorter allowing less time to play. Arizona Resorts offer many golf package options directly from their respective sites.
Other nearby communities with great golf include Fountain Hills that includes the well known SunRidge Canyon Golf Club that was ranked as a Top 50 “You Can Play” by GOLF Magazine in 1996 and is a past host of the USGA National State Championship.
The famous Red Rocks of Sedona are a great backdrop for the Sedona Golf Resort located about 90 minutes North of Scottsdale. Although open all year, spring through fall offer the best times to golf in Sedona.
Scottsdale golf is the perfect choice for a golf destination.
