Head to Phoenix before Christmas – and I mean up until December 24th – and you can enjoy a too good to believe it is true deal at one of the nation’s most venerable luxury golf resorts.
The “Jewel of the Desert,” the landmark Arizona Biltmore opened in 1929, has been a playground of the rich and famous ever since, and remains distinctive today for its one-of-a-kind Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. The resort sits right at the foot of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, and has all the usual bells and whistles, including a huge spa, six restaurants and lounges, and eight swimming pools.
But the real reason to jam a trip in before Santa comes down the chimney is for the Unlimited Golf Package, starting at just $289 for two. You heard right – tee off as many times as you can (or want to) on either or both of the resort’s courses, including posh accommodations, for just $150 per person. Play 36 and that’s $75 per round with free lodging!
The well-bunkered Links is the tougher course, while Adobe, Phoenix’s second oldest golf course, is a Pinehurst-style throwback, a traditional resort design with wide lush fairways. In fact, the whole place is lush and ultra-well maintained. Adobe is the original, a Bill Bell design from 1928, before the resort rooms even opened. It recently underwent a $4 million renovation and is in great shape.
