Best Golf Course Phoenix 2012 - Las Sendas Golf Club
7555 E. Eagle Crest Drive
Mesa, AZ 85207-1053
With about 200 courses to choose from, this was a tough one, but being that we are suckers for magnificent views and thoughtful holes where sheer power doesn't always win the day, Las Sendas is this year's winner. This gorgeous desert course winds through the Usery Mountains in east Mesa nearly 1,800 feet above sea level, but unless your golf is as beautiful as the scenery, forget posting a decent score. No kidding, you can pretty much check out the entire Valley from the elevated 18th hole, a classic double dog-leg par-5 with water in play. The price is fair for such a treat of a course — as low as about $30 in the summers and about $100 in prime time, after the snowbirds have arrived. Often rated one of the top 10 courses in Arizona by real golfers, as if that matters.
