If you're looking for value in your golf vacation, here's something you might want to consider: Travel to Tucson, Arizona and play the munis. Tucson has some of the best golf weather in the U.S. and one of the better municipal golf systems. Nobody's saying that Tucson's best munis are as good as Torrey Pines or Beth Page Black, but they are very good values. In fact, while the resort courses approach $200 during peak season, Tucson's munis are well less than $50. And the golf is pretty stout.
Many of the top golf courses in Tucson are affiliated with top resort brands. One of the most recognized daily fees in the area, however, is affiliated with the University of Arizona, one of the nation's most illustrious golf programs: Arizona National. While the course conditions may be a notch below the region's most upscale resort plays, the price is as well, making Arizona National well worth the trip.
