No easier place to play two rounds in a winter day than Phoenix-Scottsdale
Forget the looks. You may find yourself being fitted for a Hannibal Lecter jacket.
Except if you’re in Phoenix-Scottsdale.
For here you can show up at 3 p.m. and reasonably assume you’ll be finishing a complete 18. In fact, if you don’t it’s probably because you picked the wrong course for your late-day play.
With Arizona’s golf-geared refusal to fall back and observe the arcane farmer orientated daylight savings time system, sunsets are well after 6:15 p.m. here this time of year. Closer to 6:30 p.m. lately.
With a 3 p.m. super twilight tee time that gives you a good three hours plus to get in your round. But you have to choose wisely. This isn’t the time to cram in one of the desert clear monsters.
Courses like Starfire at Scottsdale Country Club and the courses at McCormick Ranch Golf Club are the smart type of plays. You need something that’s green, largely flat and without a lot of long treks between holes.

There’s no easier place to get in two full rounds a day on a winter golf trip (without ending up feeling like a sleepy Myrtle Beach farmer). But you still have to put some strategy into it.
