Arizona National tops Power Rankings for the week of March 23

As Arizona's peak spring golf season heads down the back nine, area golf courses continue to pile up great reviews. This week's top-rated course in the U.S. is Tucson's Arizona National Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. design that dazzles with fertile desert scenery at the base of the Santa Catalina mountains.

We profiled Arizona National at the end of 2014 as it was rated the most improved golf courses in the country year-over-year. So far in 2015, they've continued the pace with a 4.6/5 overall average to date.
