Tee up for August with a golf getaway at Mountain Shadows Resort in Scottsdale, home of the 18-hole Short Course. All summer long, the resort hosts a variety of specials for golfers, as well as some luxe ways to stay and play.
At Mountain Shadows, there is no need to take a sabbatical from golfing during the summer months. The Short Course, from golf architect Forrest Richardson, is easily played in under three hours, offering fun, fast rounds that are ideal for both novices and pros. Looking to improve your game–even if you’re an experienced player? The resort hosts golf lessons to help perfect your putting, chipping and pitching on the resort’s full-size putting and chipping green.
Interested in a girls’ day out? Enjoy a round with friends on The Short Course with special rates available for women every Thursday morning. For golfers who want to hit the green again and again this season, the Summer Unlimited Golf Pass allows guests to enjoy endless rounds of golf for $499, now through Sept. 17 (Monday through Thursday and after 10 a.m. on the weekends).
After time on the course, a dip at the pool is just the way to refreshingly round out the day. Guests can lounge in a daybed or in one of eight shaded cabanas, enjoying access to plush lounge seating, a television and a mini fridge. Plus, every cabana and daybed reservation comes with a bucket of beer or seltzer or a bottle of house rosé. Cabana and daybed reservations are open to both resort guests and day visitors and can be booked here.
To make a weekend of it, book the Fee-Free Staycation, which includes 15 percent off a room, a waived resort fee (savings of $37) and two drinks to toast your arrival. This special offer is available now through Sept. 30 for stays of two nights or longer.
To achieve the ultimate summer slumber, the Moons & Stars Sleep Package is specially designed for dozing. As a $155 add-on to your room rate, the package includes a cup of Golden Moon Milk, complete with good-for-you turmeric, lavender and cardamom; a 90-day sleep journal; calm-inducing Star Dust Pillow Mist for your pillow, face and hair; and a Brooklinen constellation eye mask.
