Power Rankings: Ocotillo Golf Resort leads the top-rated courses of the week for July 7

It may be the height of summer, but that isn't stopping golfers from playing (and loving) a lot of golf in the Valley of the Sun. In Chandler, Ocotillo Golf Resort earned near-perfect marks last week from golfers who played it and reviewed their experience here on GolfAdvisor.

Los Caballeros Golf Club , Union Hills Golf Club and the Faldo Course at Wildfire Golf Club were other Arizona courses that continue to score highly despite the scorching desert heat. One of our writers, Mike Bailey , posted an article last week about how to enjoy summertime golf in the desert , where green fees are a bargain and pace of play is generally lightning fast.

But some facilities in the north are doing quite well, too. Vermont, Illinois, Michigan and Indiana are among the northern states to feature top-rated courses last week.
