Ocotillo Golf Club: Golf at an Oasis
Rising out of the Arizona desert like an oasis, Ocotillo Golf Club is a golfer’s paradise. The course encompasses rolling hills lined by mature trees, colorful flower beds and all shapes and sizes of water hazards. An alternative to the desert-style golf so commonplace in the valley, this sanctuary-like course is also one of the best-maintained facilities in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area.
The Valley's Best Holes - Best Water hole: No. 4 at Ocotillo Golf Resort - White Course
If you think it might be difficult to find water in the desert, check out Ocotillo, which has water hazards on 24 of the 27 holes and was designed by Ted Robinson, who specializes in creating water parks. This par 4 is the signature hole and plays at just 340 yards, but it requires you to hit two well-placed shots over lakes to a green that is back dropped by a waterfall and vegetation exploding with color. Consider it your desert oasis
