The history of Phoenix golf courses dates back to the turn of the 20th century, where a 9-hole dirt course was created in 1900 near the intersection of Roosevelt and 3rd Street. Since those early days, the number of golf courses within the Phoenix city limits alone has grown to nearly 20. The golf courses in Phoenix, Arizona range in both style and difficulty. Whether you are looking for an easy, relatively flat track or undulating terrain from tee to green, there is an option for you in Phoenix.
In this section, we will provide a little more information about the different types of courses you will find in Phoenix, where to find them, and the types of homes you can find around them.
