Guaranteed sunshine and deeply discounted tee times await golfers ready to brave the summer heat in Scottsdale.

Sure, summers sizzle in Scottsdale. But it’s hard to resist green fees slashed by as much as 60 per cent off peak season rates at courses that number among Arizona’s best. Locals say the key to happiness is to play early in the day, slather on the sunblock, and drink plenty of fluids.

It also helps to stay elevated. The Boulders, one of Scottsdale’s most dramatically beautiful resorts, sits at an elevation of just over 2,500 feet, making morning and evening temperatures dramatically cooler here than almost anywhere else in the Valley of the Sun. The Boulder’s Two by Fore Summer package features accommodation in a recently remodelled casita, a daily round of golf (with the option of a same-day replay on either of the property’s two courses), and a 20 per cent discount on all spa services. Rates start at $209 per night (all figures in U.S. dollars) with a two-night minimum stay.

Just down the street from The Phoenician, JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort and Spa is featuring its Unlimited Golf package. Included is accommodation in a casita guest room, complimentary breakfast, and unlimited golf at Camelback Golf Club. Rates start from $229.
