Scottsdale 2019 is booked....I was finally able to make the last tee time a couple of weeks ago.
Wed- Raven Golf Club
Thurs- Troon North (both courses)
Fri- Dinosaur Mountain
Sat- WM Open
I tried to get on at WeKoPa, but they were already booked up.....even though I called before their booking window even began. In any case, I'm looking forward to a few days of desert golf for my 40th birthday.

I wanted to play Quintero, but it just didn't fit into the timeline for this trip. It'll stay on the list for next time around!

That's what I've heard. Someone else suggested that we play ASU Karsten, but I've read TERRIBLE reviews (all from 2018). I guess once they "lost" the ASU golf team, they let the course go to crap, which is sad to hear.

I was not a fan of ASU Karsten. I've only played it once and it was in 2018, but it was in terrible condition.

Scottsdale 2019 is in the books. WOW, what a great time! Got to play 5 rounds in 4 days, and caught the WM Phoenix Open on Saturday. The tournament is and absolute sh!t show....it's like Spring Break with a golf tournament going on during the party.
We played Raven Golf Club Phoenix, Troon North (Monument AND Pinnacle) Gold Canyon (Dinosaur Mountain) and Papago. The two Troon courses were definitely the most "plush." The place was immmaculate, and I felt like I was a Chick-Fil-A all day with their "How can I help you, sir? Can I get you anything else, sir? My pleasure, sir." attitudes. As for the views, Dinosaur Mountain was amazing. The elevation changes and views were spectacular there. As for Raven and Papago, they were also good- no real complaints with either of them. Their "wow factors" were just not as good as the others.
All in all, it was a great trip. The entire group had a great time, and I definitely appreciate my friends ponying up the $$$ to help me celebrate my 40th Birthday.
Thanks for the recommendations, everyone.
