The best courses in Scottsdale under $100
Finding a golf course to play in Scottsdale is not difficult. With more than 200 courses in the area, Scottsdale is arguably the preeminent golf destination in the United States. Yet, with soaring demand (the region is among the fastest-growing metro areas in the U.S.), many of the area’s must plays will set you back a couple hundred dollars.
Tracking down a quality course with more affordable rates can be an arduous process. We’re here to help with this collection of the Best Courses Under $100 in Scottsdale. These layouts deliver unmatched value and include a Best in State member, traditional desert-style tracks and unique tree-lined designs more often found in the Midwest.
Though most courses have moved to a dynamic pricing system, where the rate changes daily based on demand, we’ve found regularly offered rates for under $100 at each of these layouts. Playing in the afternoon will offer you the best value, but many of these tracks can be found for a reasonable rate in the morning, too.

From Golf Digest Architecture Editor emeritus Ron Whitten: Every so often I come across a golf hole so compelling that it overshadows my memory of every other hole on the course. The par-5 18th at The Victory at Verrado is such a hole. It’s a dogleg right from the back tee (590 yards) over an irrigation pond (not really in play for big hitters) to a wide diagonal fairway with a rock escarpment on the left. The second shot is uphill to a green that’s tucked into a box canyon and protected front right by boulder outcroppings.
