Phoenix Golf to Red Agave Resort, Sedona, AZ

AZ, Phoenix, Wally, Superstition Mtn

While in Phoenix, Wally wanted to visit Gold Canyon and the golf courses to check them out. We pulled in to the Superstition Mountain Golf Course and the gatekeeper called ahead to let us go to their clubhouse for a quick tour. Wow! The clubhouse was based on a Tuscan manor home and I loved it! Soaring timber frame architecture and immense windows framed the golf course and Superstition Mountains beyond. Wally was most impressed with the men’s locker room which was equipped with a bartender. It was fun to take the tour, but way above our lifestyle!

We next drove down the road to check out the public courses – The Sidewinder and The Dinosaur, which Wally said were supposed to be good courses.

Here are some snapshots around the Superstition Mountain Golf Course which is nestled at the base of the Superstition Mountains.

I took this shot from the Red Agave Resort office. Their logo is on their glass door – thought this was pretty cool…

Here’s some snapshots around Red Agave – their units and courtyard face Bell and Cathedral Rock and trails go out from right from their courtyard. It’s a pet friendly resort too.
