Never been to Arizona before.  So there was no way I was passing up the opportunity when a friend of mine said he was doin’ both Troon North courses for a story he was writing and wanted to know if I’d like to tag along.  Plus, he set me up to review both Boulder courses (North and South, both of which were absolutely tremendous) for his magazine Avid Golfer.  Plus, there was an opportunity to get a credential to the Waste Management Phoenix Open and witness the Greatest Show on Grass; the par-3 16th (something every golfer MUST see).

PLUS, the opportunity to see my best friend who just moved to Tempe.  So you know, it was a win-win-win-win-win situation.

A few highlights.

It’s no secret; nature brings character to golf courses.  Sometimes there’s deer, and sometimes there are fake wooden dogs.

I Spotted these foxes at Island Hills GC last weekend, each donning a lush orange coat with signature white-tipped tail.  Heard there’s a den in the middle of the course.  I’d stay too if all the members fed me for free.
