and ‘Beat The Heat’ with Sedona Golf Resort’s summer AZ special (Offering $69 Rate with $15 in credit)
The Phoenix forecast now reads 110, 109, 113, etc., and summer is officially here. This time of year we all are left to dream about cool climates and emerald green fairways in far away lands. One quick road trip that can get you to cooler environs is to Sedona and Sedona Golf Resort. Arguably the most scenic destination in the world, Sedona is just ninety minutes away and can be as much as fifteen degrees cooler than the “Valley of Heat”. The crown jewel of Sedona golf is truly Sedona Golf Resort. This jaw-dropping facility boasts a thrilling par – 71, 6,646 yard layout that is widely considered among the world’s most unforgettable golf experiences. Dramatic elevation changes that range from 3,960 feet to as much as 4,260 feet, is the highlight of the routing that also serves up elevated tees, slick undulating greens and numerous risk-reward approach shots.
For us Valley dwellers looking for reprieve from the heat, you need not look further than Sedona’s popular “Beat The Heat” special for AZ Golfers that offers green fees and shared cart for just $69. Plus, as an added value benefit, this special includes $15 in “Club Credit” that can be used the day of play in either Sedona’s Golf Shop or their recently renovated Juniper Bar & Grille. Like most special offers this one is limited and only offered through September 30, 2012, but there is no better way to ‘Beat The Heat’ and enjoy a truly stunning golf experience.
Winding around the famed red rocks of Sedona, each hole provides spectacular vistas and a unique adventure, in its own right. No wonder this high country favorite receives a continuous four-star rating from Golf Digest and is truly THE “Must Play” in ‘Red Rock Country’. Your round is truly one of Arizona Golf’s more memorable journeys as the course winds around Sedona’s crimson cliffs and through rugged high desert terrain that Sedona is known for around the globe. Recently, Golf Magazine’s travel editor, Joe Passov summed up the Sedona Golf experience in one sentence when he stated, “There is no golf in the Grand Canyon, but the next best thing is Sedona Golf Resort.”
"There is no golf in the Grand Canyon…but the next best thing is Sedona Golf Resort."

After golf, be sure and check out Sedona Golf Resort’s recently enhanced Juniper Bar & Grille that is a popular dining venue for golfers and non-golfers alike. You’ll be sure to enjoy sipping on a cool drink while taking in the awe inspiring views of the Red Rocks from Juniper’s wide open picture windows. Or, better yet, dine al fresco on Juniper’s expansive patio that captures more views of Bell Rock, Castle Rock and Courthouse Butte as well as sweeping views of #1 and #18.
