Golf Course
“Eagle Mountain Golf Club is right in your back yard! You can even walk to the club house in about 10 minutes. It’s a popular public course in the Phoenix area with beautiful views of the desert and some forgiving bowl shaped fairways for those wayward drives! It’s a good idea to book a tee time ahead of time.”
