There are few things in life we at Tucson and Scottsdale Golf Vacations enjoy more than a good day on the greens. In fact, we believe that a day on the golf course is hard to improve upon.

If you can dream it, they will put bacon on it. While you’re digesting, listen to live local music and learn about the different types of bacon at demonstrations and lectures (don’t worry, there will be samples).
