Timing a Scottsdale Golf Vacation

Scottsdale Golf VacationsEvery season is a Scottsdale golf season. Fall brings desirably warm days and cool nights. However, many Scottsdale golf courses go through overseeding (prepartion for the winter) in September and October, and they're not so great-looking in this interim. Summertime Scottsdale golf vacations are a smart idea if you don’t mind a little humidity and the occasional thundercloud, as you can take advantage of special Scottsdale vacation rental deals! The very beginning of summer is dry, though, with temperate evenings – so if you’re bent on a cheap Scottsdale golf vacation in the summer, try to come before July!

While fall and summer guarantee a memorable Arizona golf vacation experience and lots of value, to boot – it’s spring and winter that bring out Scottsdale’s most beautiful side. In the spring, expect sunny days, balmy nights, and flowing creeks (thanks to the melted snow), which make excellent water hazards. In the winter, there’s a nice breeze to keep things interesting on the course.

At the end of the day, an Arizona golf vacation is always in season. However, some months see especially spectacular golfing weather, while others are filled with great deals. Think about your budget and your standards for a Scottsdale golf vacation, choose your dates, and then book your golf vacation rental.
