I am sure many of you feel the same way that I do living in the Northern states right around the middle of January. After dealing with months on end of snow, cold temps and limited daylight, my husband decided I was in need of some Vitamin D.
After checking out the calendar, he discovered I had zero commitments in two weeks. This never happens. My hubby called my partner in crime – aka my sister – and coincidentally she was available too. Before you knew it, we had a trip booked to Scottsdale staying at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess and booked two full days of sun, golf and great food. Ok, and maybe a drink or two! We were both excited to pull out the golf skirts and golf bags. We even managed to pack some sunscreen in our excitement.
Bright and early we were out at Troon North Golf Club ready for our a.m. tee time. After doing a bit of damage in the pro shop, we had a quick bite to eat in the Dynamite Grille. I had heard many great things about the breakfast burrito and it was literally dynamite. We were partnered with a couple of great guys and enjoyed a challenging round of golf.
My sister and I wound our day up with a dining adventure at Proof Restaurant at the Four Seasons. They have crazy good craft drinks featuring bourbon. I never would have thought I would like bourbon, but I have found myself loving a really good Old-Fashioned.
Being the golf junkies that we are, we were up bright and early to squeeze in a round of golf before our flight. You guessed it. We took the late afternoon flight to get the most out of our trip. Quintero Golf Club is a bit outside of Scottsdale but worth the drive. What a treasure in the desert!
The course was beautiful and well maintained. We were joking that it was almost too good with the way the greens were rolling. Fast and firm
Since we were the first tee time of the day we played at a quick pace and were off the course in under 4 hours. Perfect timing to get back to the airport and through security in plenty of time.
I leave you with this question – Was this a gift a win/win for both my husband and I? He had the house to himself for two days and I was able to feed my FOOD|GOLF|TRAVEL addiction.
Hubbies out there! You may need to try it!
