Top 25 courses in Arizona according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

It's one of America's most coveted warm-weather golf destinations. Arizona boasts plenty of excellent public and resort golf, from Sedona and Flagstaff in the north, to Phoenix-Scottsdale's 200-plus options, then down to Tucson, where plenty more unique courses await.

With thousands of reviews coming in from Golf Advisor readers in 2015, we've tallied up each course's score to find the 25 best. The score is made up of a course's overall score combined with its subcategory scores, also with attention paid to number of reviews and how active reviewers who scored the course have been on Golf Advisor.

There was pretty significant movement in the rankings for the top Arizona golf courses as rated by Golf Advisor reviewers from 2014 to 2015. Tucson's Sewailo Golf Club, which opened in 2013, is climbing in ratings as it matures. It was the top-rated course in Arizona in 2015 and placed in the top 10 nationally among reviewers on Golf Advisor. A big reason why may be the price point. The course, part of Casino Del Sol, is just $81 in the peak months, which is far below the median price of the top courses in Phoenix -Scottsdale.

Quintero Golf Club , which was the state's no. 1-rated course in 2014, slid to no. 16, but still edged out out other high-end destination courses such as Troon North and Ak-Chin Southern Dunes . You can click on each course page to view full reviews and ratings details.

Courses needed a minimum of 20 reviews in the calendar year to qualify.
