The Phoenician Golf Club reopened in the fall of 2018 after a massive redesign and renovation by Scottsdale-based architect Phil Smith. The new 18-hole layout replaces the original 27-hole routing. Every hole is new, featuring TifEagle grass greens and tees, fairways and rough that are 419 Bermuda grass. The golf shop has been expanded as well, and the Club Car golf carts have been outfitted with the "Shark Experience" - a new golf technology with a high-definition touch screen and built-in speakers for playing music and watching live sports, news and entertainment, along with GPS yardage.

Nice Redesign

First time back to the Phoenician since the redesign (they consolidated 3 nine hole tracks into one 18). New layout much improved, back nine is very memorable close to Camelback Mt. Fairways and greens both in good condition even right before winter over-seeding.

There are a few very long distances from green to the next tee, but not really a problem in a cart. Only downside was the massive construction of homes on the grounds; this is obviously temporary.

Bring you own booze

Seriously. The prices for drinks out here are insane. $90 for 2 bloodys, a double jemison and 2 beers. I'm fine paying for my drinking at a golf course, but, this is nuts

Beautiful Course

Great course and layout. $65 rate as a hot deal of Golf Now made it very attractive. Played as a single and did catch up to a twosome at one point, but just allowed me to work on game a little. Saw bev cart 4 times and a Marshall did stop by and said they moved along a group that was dragging

first time

was excited to see a $40 round come up on the day, greens were slow, $10 beers was a bit much considering it was so hot and i am always thirsty... great city views from i think the 14th up against the hillside. north of $120usd in peak time, not too sure.

The Phoenician

Very friendly staff, excellent amenities, golf carts are first class, bottled water on the course and very scenic views on the back 9, the course was in very good condition despite the construction going on around some areas of the course. Great experience overall.
