Arizona Golf Course Review

Encanto 18 Golf Club- Arizona Golf Course

encantologoThe municipality of Phoenix is the owner/operator of a nice variety of quality and value oriented 18-hole golf properties, including Papago, Maryvale, Encanto Park, Cave Creek and Aguila golf courses. There also are three 9-hole layouts. Besides the fact that these courses are easily accessible, golfers will also appreciate the pricing structure that makes a round on these properties a good value on an Arizona golf vacation. Visitors can click on the following link, to find pricing and to book a tee time online at any of the Phoenix municipal golf facilities http://phoenix.gov/recreation/rec/facilities/golf/l

The photos in this review are of the Encanto 18 Golf Course, which has the distinction of being the third oldest course in Arizona. Wide, level fairways with a limited number of hazards make this a local favorite - and ideally suited to the average golfer. An abundance of mature palms and salt cedar trees provide a relaxing and aesthetically pleasing environment, with some spectacular views of the downtown Phoenix skyscape. The course is adjacent to a municipal park.

Frequent home to the Phoenix Open Qualifying, Encanto also features a nine hole executive course. Both layouts play along a fairly level terrain with palms and other native trees lining most fairways. There is generally plenty of room on this player friendly layout, which is a comfortable experience for beginners and high handicappers.

The green complexes are slightly raised with large bunkers often situated on one or both sides. In total, 35 sand traps line the fairways or are placed greenside, and water comes into play on just one hole. The putting surfaces are large in size and sloping in nature, with some crowns providing challenges on shots that run through the greens.
