Part of the Troon Golf family, this 27 hole marvel has been artistically shaped from 250 acres of prime Arizona real estate on the Southern slope of famous Camelback Mountain.
One enters the property under stately palms, past lush landscaping and flower gardens while meandering up the winding drive to the clubhouse. What an entrance and first impression !

 The fine staff under the direction of the very gracious and hospitable PGA Professionals and Director of Golf will wisk your clubs away, clean them and put them on your cart before you can find your wallet for the tip.

We are pleased to tell you that the chefs certainly know their way around the kitchen and how to rattle those pots and pans at the Phoenician. Exceptional food and presentation!
The golf course ah yes the golf course. From the first tee the Arizona desert morphs seamlessly into rushing waterfalls, huge elevation changes, grass so green it would make an Irishman feel homesick, sand bunkers, giant Saguaro cactus and breathtakingly clear blue sky.
The Phoenician 2
The Phoenician enjoys 3 nine hole courses. The Canyon, Oasis and Desert. If you decide to stay at this fabulous resort, why not play various combinations of all three? To avoid disappointment book your accommodations and golf early.
Each 18 hole combination has it’s own unique characteristics but most of all the conditioning and grass cutting you will swear is done with tweezers and scissors.
Whichever course combinations you select to play you will find them all enjoyable due to the many different sets of tee decks. In addition, each player will be provided a classy and colourful yardage book with very accurate yardage readings to make your game more enjoyable. All courses are very partner friendly no matter the handicap. 

The Phoenician completely lives up to our discerning expectations and their very own mission to create extraordinary guest and member experiences by delivering superior service, amenities and playing surfaces. We highly recommend The Phoenician.
