Golfers need advice

My wife and I are looking for an alternative to Palm Springs for two weeks of golfing in March and the Lake Havasu area looks like a possibility. We need advice: hotel or rental condo, weather, golf choices and prices, restaurants for dinner, which weeks are best.

Thanks in advance.

Hi PG76 , just wondering how your golf search is going.

We are planning a weekend at Emerald Canyon Golf Course in Parker in April. Have you had any success with rooms...reviews for rooms in Parker dont look too good.

No replies at all, except yours. Emerald Canyon looks okay but you're right, hotel choices are, shall we say, limited.

Haven't played at Havasu, mostly because there is no way it can compare or compete with Palm Springs. You will save money, but you'll see a huge difference in quality and options. PHX and Scottsdale would provide a good and comparable trade off to Palm Springs.

I have played Emerald Canyon and stayed in Parker.. It still can't compare but it's a fun little track for a weekend away. I can't imagine being there for 2 weeks though.

I reckon I missed the OP. I have not played in the areas you originally asked about, but my group of hackers does travel to Phoenix every March for a week of golf. Tons of very nice courses and many and very reasonalble priced and are on great shape. If you are interested in Phoenix golf, I can provide some details on our trips.

There are excellent golf courses in Lake Havasu City & surrounding areas.

I have been going to Havasu for 30 years and have never been disappointed. Three hotels are currently arranging golf packages. Check these sites: www.havasusands.com (downtown) and www.fairwayinnlakehavasu.com (on Refuge golf course)....good luck!
