At The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch, golfers come to stay and play all year long. There are so many reasons why so many people love to golf. Here are just a few:
Most Americans do not get enough exercise. Golf is a great way to get some cardiovascular exercise and burn off some extra calories without putting excessive strain on your body. A typical game of golf can take anywhere from two to four hours and burn around 1500 calories. The best part is, you’ll be having so much fun, you will hardly realize you are exercising.
Golf is a fantastic way to spend time with friends, regardless of their golfing ability. Since the golf handicap allows players with different skill levels to play together, it is far more forgiving than other sports activities. While you can play golf by yourself, it is a lot more fun to have friends or family to chat with as you make your way through the course.
Scottsdale has an average of 330 days of sunshine each year. Which means that no matter when you come to Scottsdale, there’s a pretty good chance you can play a day of golf in the sun. We absorb Vitamin D through the sunshine, which is essential in maintaining a general sense of well-being and ensuring we get enough sleep. Spending time on the golf course is a great way to enjoy the abundant Scottsdale sunshine.
We may be a bit biased, but we think Scottsdale has some of the most picturesque golf courses in the world. The Sonoran Desert and iconic Camelback Mountain provide a stunning backdrop to the many of Scottsdale's courses. Although, guests of the Scottsdale Resort can take advantage of special tee times at the especially scenic and conveniently located McCormick Ranch Golf Club.
