Tee Off In Mesa-Golf & More
There are more than 40 golf courses in the Mesa area and every single one of them will offer a different view or unique shot-making choice unlike the other. Great golf alternatives include: Disc Golf, Glow Golf and Foot Golf
Mesa is surrounded by mountain ranges that shape our northern, southern and eastern skylines and many of the area’s tee boxes put players in front of sweeping vistas set against the natural beauty of the desert and blue Western skies. Plus, the city’s welcoming fall weather makes Mesa the perfect setting for a golf getaway. Here’s our guide to our favorite golf spots!
Perhaps the most challenging of them all is Las Sendas Golf Club which takes advantage of the breathtaking views of both Red Mountain and the Superstition mountain range. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the course has matured into one of the most beautiful courses in Arizona and ranks as one of the top 50 courses in the nation.
Augusta Ranch Golf Club is the top short course in the East Valley. An 18-hole, par 61 golf course renowned for its exceptional playing conditions, friendly service, and challenging layout. This course allows players of all abilities to get out and enjoy the game of golf, the way it is meant to be enjoyed. With PGA instructors on staff, visitors can sign up for a tune-up lesson before dusting off their clubs. You will use every club in your bag on this wonderful layout and better yet it won't take all day.
Golf Clinics are held on Saturdays throughout the year for $10 each, adult or junior.
Longbow Golf Club is a must-visit in Mesa. The Ken Kavanaugh designed course is for the classic golfer, as it focuses on giving an excellent golfing experience. Longbow has earned a place among golf’s elite resort courses around the country by being included in Golfweek’s rankings for the top 100 resort courses in the U.S. With that commendation and the course’s supply of desert beauty and stunning views of iconic Red Mountain, a game at Longbow Golf Club is an excellent way to enjoy scenic Arizona views and hone your golfing skills.
Opt to play the course on a LongbowGolfBoard®, a fun alternative to riding in a traditional cart. Playing golf on a new LongbowGolfBoard is an experience unlike any other you've had on the course. It's Safe, Easy to learn, environmentally friendly, and anyone can ride like a pro in just a few minutes. Check out this VIDEO to see how fun it is! The first of our brand new LongbowGolfBoard fleet have begun arriving with 2020 and includes new features to enjoy as you Surf the Earth!
In late 2019 Longbow updated their entire fleet of EzGo Golf Cars. The new fleet has GPS, luxury seating, phone charging ports, lithium batteries for longer life on course and more.
In east Mesa, Sunland Springs Golf Club offers 27-holes with views in all directions of the Superstition Mountain range. The remodeled full-service pro shop and clubhouse can equip any visitor short on clubs and other must haves for a round in the desert.
Arizona Golf Resort offers 18-holes of PGA-rated Championship Golf. The lush fairways are lined with massive cottonwood and eucalyptus trees, serene lake settings, mature vegetation, expansive fairways and gently sloping, well-manicured greens. The course offers an excellent test for ALL skill levels. The 6,601 yards, par 72 Course boasts a slope of 120 and a rating of 70.8.
We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, home to Golfweek’s 2014 top public course across Arizona, offers a dramatic test of golf that plays through shady arroyos and over desert ridges. Just north of the city is We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, developed by the Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation and managed by Troon Golf. You’re in for an unmatched Sonoran Desert golf experience with their two award-winning 18-hole golf courses, Cholla and Saguaro, that both offer dramatic views of the Sonoran desert and a great game of golf. The original Cholla course, designed by Scott Miller, and the newer Saguaro course, designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, are both 18-hole courses that will offer a memorable experience whether you’re a weekend golfer or a seasoned pro.
Set inside the urban heart of Mesa is Superstition Springs Golf Club, one of Arizona's most challenging golf layouts but also one of the city’s most diverse in terms of terrain. This premier course measures over 7,000 yards from the back tee and was a PGA Tour qualifying site rated among the Southwest's finest golf experiences. Lush fairways framed by mature trees with picturesque water features add to the strategy on this championship course designed by Greg Nash.
Toka Sticks Golf Club offers visitors a traditional links golf experience on an affordable and enjoyable layout. Offering Callaway Golf rental clubs for men, women and juniors, this golf club is perfect for those who want to enjoy the best equipment in golf without packing their clubs from home. If you’re looking to brush up on your skills before hitting the green, Toka Sticks Golf Club even offers a practice facility with various instruction options including PGA teaching professionals.
Several City of Mesa parks and Stripe Show Golf Club are equipped for the fun, competitive sport of disc golf. Meander through trees, shrubs, and challenging terrain layouts when the "putt" lands in the basket. Disc golf shares the same pleasures (and frustrations) of traditional golf, whether it's sinking a long putt or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway.
When the sun sets, grab the clubs for night golf with glow-in-the-dark golf balls. This new way to get in a round after dark is especially fun during a full moon. Played in a scramble format, golfers who crave a real test will find it playing Glow Ball at Augusta Ranch Golf Club.
Now being played at Augusta Ranch Golf Club, an official American FootGolf League Arizona site, this energy-driven game uses a soccer ball as players aim toward "BIG" cups. All ages are welcome to kick a ball down the fairway as you pair in teams. For an added element and to avoid the sun, try the course’s newest offering, night time Glow Foot Golf.
So get your golf clubs together and head out to beautiful Mesa for great weather, views and golf this fall. Once you go, be sure to use #MesaCityLimitless #VisitMesa and tell us which course is your favorite; you’ll find it’s hard to choose just one!
