Find the "Suite Spot" in Mid April and May.

It's cold. You're sick of it. I get it.

Originally from Cleveland, and after having resided many years in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, I understand that mid March can be depressing. It's supposed to be spring, yet it's still grey and cold. You wanna get to Scottsdale, but you're not too keen on $200 tee time fees and $200 per night hotels that typically accompany Arizona in March. I have the answer, my climate challenged friends...

Wait a couple more weeks, and come to Scottsdale in mid April or May. The weather is still absolutely perfect (mid 80's, no humidity, and no rain), and the prices are much more reasonable.

We have put together a stay and play package for Scottsdale that is First Class all the way, but won't have you dreading your next Amex statement.

Our "Suite Spot" Stay and Play starts with sharing a One Bedroom Resort Suite at the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa. The suites are very large, very well equipped, and it's nice having a suite with all the amenities of a full service resort for less than $100 per person per day all in. (Even the daily $30 resort fee is included)

Then play 4 of Scottsdale's best and highest rated layouts:
More info on each course can be found here.

This stay and play package is valid from April 11th through May 31st, and at $199 per person per day which includes the suite, resort fees, green fees, and all taxes, it's a spectacular value!
(Rates are even lower after June 1st, but the weather is getting hot that time of year)

Feel free to contact Chris Parcell or Lori Greene in our Scottsdale offices for more details.

Hang in there.

Things To Do While In Orlando On A Golf Vacation

During this time of year, a lot of individuals are in the Orlando, Florida area on golf vacations. Everyone thinks of Disney, Universal and so on when talking about Orlando. Due to these theme parks, the area is a very service oriented city. One of the best things, is the quantity and quality of places to eat in the area. Guys in town on golf vacations are always looking for good places to eat. Here are a few areas that I would concentrate on when looking for things to do and great places to eat.

First and foremost is the Sand Lake Road/ Dr. Phillips area. This area has everything from great cigar bars (Corona's) to high end restaurants (Ruth's Chris). The Sand Lake road area, has probably 20 plus restaurants and bars, all with a mile or so of each other.

The next very popular area is the International Drive area. This area does see a lot of tourists, but also has plenty of things to do from miniature golf, comedy shows, to even mystery dinner shows. My favorite part of International drive is called Pointe Orlando. This area has a couple of clubs along with some great restaurants - Capital Grille and Tommy Bahamas.

Downtown Orlando also has an area called Church Street Station. This is a couple of blocks of bars and nightclubs, but at least 20+ minutes from the SW Orlando area, where most golfers stay. A little closer is the Millenia Mall area, which has some very good chain restaurants, but the popular place is the Blue Martini - great place for the guys to go and enjoy the sites.

Orlando is not known for having numerous Gentleman Clubs, like Tampa does, but Rachel's is a nice place and has a very good steakhouse on site.

I've obviously only touched on a few certain areas, but you need to talk to your golf vacation specialist. We live in the area we sell and have traveled most of the state we live in.
