Oasis in the Desert

This Scottsdale Airbnb with a stunning backyard golf complex is ready to host the greatest buddies trip of all time

February 20, 2024

It might not be the most glamorous locale on the list when planning a bucket-list golf trip, but Scottsdale, Arizona is a deep-round sleeper. There's incredible courses, warm winter weather and plenty of cerveza and chorizo to go around. Throw in the whole Phoenix Open factor, and you have golf destination that holds its own against the best in the world.

But wait, it just got better. Step inside Saguaro Point, a five-acre, eight-bedroom Airbnb perched in the hills of Scottsdale. The desert bungalow sleeps up to 20 and features a bevy of amenities, from a wet sauna and dedicated card room to an outdoor pool and firepit. The real star of the show of the show, however, is the backyard golf complex.


It all starts with the 4,000-square-foot lighted putting green located off the back of the house. Once warmed up, guests can hop in one of the three four-seat golf carts at their disposal and plunge down the hill to the remaining three putting surfaces. Each is playable from an array of different tee boxes that offer hours of grinding (or gambling) with the boys. When it comes time to unwind after a day full of golf, you can kick back with even more golf in the indoor simulator bay or test your mettle on the pool and ping pong tables.


Saguaro Point is available to book in four-night blocks between October 1st and May 31st and at the time of writing is priced at $4,524 a night. Motel 6 it ain’t, but if you’re looking for the buddies trip end all buddies trips, it’ll be worth every penny.
