Fall is in the air, bringing idyllic temperatures and great playing conditions to Quintero Golf Club, rated #1 “Best Courses You Can Play” in the State of Arizona by Golfweek Magazine. To celebrate the change of season, the club has announced special fall pricing for advanced tee times and new stay-and-play packages.
The Symetra Tour, Road to the LPGA, is in Arizona this week for the Gateway Classic at Longbow Golf Club. This is the third year for this event, and last year, Alena Sharp made things interesting, shooting a final round 71 to finish at 12-under-oar and claim her first career Symetra Tour victory. Alena won’t be in the field this week, as she has now has status on the LPGA Tour. But the field is full of talent this week featuring Vicky Hurst, Birdie Kim and many more. Needless to say, it should be an exciting weekend of golf.
Longbow Golf Club, located in Mesa, Arizona, is a favorite here at Discount Tee Times. The golf course hosts a wide range of events, and is an affordable option for golfers living in the Valley of the Sun. From The Tips, the golf course measures 7,003 yards with a 72.7 rating and a 132 slope. This week the course will measure 6,450 yards for competition. For those of you keeping score, this course is no walk in the park. But the girls on the Symetra Tour might make it look otherwise. The golf course is also the home course for former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Danny White.
Who will win this week? Regardless, it should be an exciting 54-hole event. Oh, and the weather will be perfect.
(I just found out that Alexandra Casi is playing in the event, and Kelley Shaw, founder of Ladies Dream Golf, will be in town caddying for her this week. If you haven’t heard of Alexandra, it is only a matter of time. She recently appeared on an episode of the Friday Foursome. Check it out and make sure you are cheering for her this week!)
