Arizona Golf - Planning an Autumnal Adventure

Generally, I don't tend to plan my vacations in advance.

I hate to be locked into exact dates and specific destinations six months out. And who knows? m
y mood might be totally different once the departure date is looming. I'm a big fan of spontaneity too... I like the slight adrenalin rush that accompanies the unknown. And the thing is, I always seem to stumble upon the best places and the nicest people... when I'm winging it.

That said, I've been reading a lot about Arizona golf over the past couple of months and recently decided to diverge from my usual last-minute, anywhere-the-wind-blows style and plan, ... really plan... my late fall golf getaway in AZ. Because, as I understand it Arizona offers myriad... that's myriad with a capital M... textures and flavors of golf, and I want to experience as many of them as possible.

For example in addition to playing golf, on this particularly trip I want to work on my game, and I've heard that in Scottsdale golf instruction is superlative. With several of the world's most reputed academies and instructors withing mere miles of each other.

Because I've never played on a desert course and in the words of one of my readers, Tucson golf equals desert golf. With the added benefit of some awesome spas great southwestern restaurants.
