Golf in the Valley

can be enjoyed year-round, which is why we’re home to so many award-winning courses. In fact, many of the Valley’s courses are frequently visited by the pros themselves. Challenge yourself at Troon North Golf Club, which was named the No. 1 course in the Valley by Golf Magazine. The two 18-hole courses afford picturesque vistas of Pinnacle Peak and were recently redesigned by Tom Weiskopf. TPC Scottsdale is home to the annual Waste Management Phoenix Open, which welcomes the PGA tour each February. Jay Morrish and Tom Weiskopf designed the two championship courses, which are open to the public for play. Enjoy scenic views of the McDowell Mountains, rolling greens and water hazards on the two courses at Grayhawk Golf Club. The club also has a golf school that offers private lessons and even three-day workshops.  ARIZONA BILTMORE GOLF CLUB 2400 E.

Pizzas, salads, antipasto and authentic Italian cuisine made from locally sourced organic ingredients are what you’ll find at this urban eatery. The restored 1913 bungalow that houses the restaurant makes for an intimate and charming setting in the heart of Downtown Phoenix. Try one of the much-talked-about gourmet pizzas, white and red, and all hand-tosssed. 603 N. 5th Ave., Phoenix 602-441-2697 cibophoenix.com

Hanny’s

For fresh, locally sourced fare, head to Downtown Phoenix Public Market, where you can pick up meat, produce and other food items in an open-air setting on Wednesdays and Saturdays. For grub to go, the Urban Grocery & Wine Bar is open Tuesday through Saturday and has ready-made sandwiches and breakfast foods as well as grocery items.

This hip eatery was formerly a threestory department store dating back to the 1940s. The restoration kept some of the original fixtures, including the elevator shaft, which now has a glass bottom that guests can look through. Of course, the menu is equally interesting, featuring contemporary American classics and a martini bar that’s deadly.

You can grab a quick bite and a beer, too, but expect a line if you’re planning a visit around lunchtime. Try the carne asada or an El Pastor taco; the latter is basted in fresh pineapple all day.
