Voted the best, inexpensive 18 holes in the "Valley of the Sun" as featured by the Arizona Republic newspaper, Villa de Paz Golf Club is Arizona`s best golfing value. The course was built in the early 1970`s and is one of the oldest 18-hole facilities on the west side of Phoenix. A traditional, parkland-style layout, Villa de Paz is a challenge to even the most experienced players. It is also easy enough that the novice and beginning golfer will also have an enjoyable expereince.
Remodeled in the fall of 2002, the 6,700 yard, par-72 layout features a variety of challenges with water coming into play on 10 of the 18 holes. It`s the perfect choice to play in the summer because of the abundant shade thanks to the mature trees that line many of the fairways.
Birdies and eagles are there to be made, but plenty of risk is at hand. Shot making is at its premium on holes such as Number 4, a 450-yard par 5, that doglegs severely to the right. Then there are holes 7,8 and 15, all par 4s that are reachable from the tee for the long hitters. The finishing hole is a spectactular 470 yard, par 4 from the back tee, that doglegs to the right. The second shot must carry over a lake to a three-tiered green. Number 18 is a hole that one soon won`t forget.
