In this episode, Jerry Rose of Link Communications talks about many of the golf courses he promotes in the Scottsdale area. He also gives a good overview of golf in the rest of Greater Phoenix, and comments on the amazing Toro Latin Restaurant and Rum Bar, managed by the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Hotel, but located behind the 18th green of the TPC Scottsdale where the rancorous and noisy Waste Management Open is held.

Golfing with friends on a destination course is a great experience.  From Left to Right are Gerry Wersch, Louis Bouvier, and Gil Robert. These gentlemen have the good fortune of spending a good part of winter where it is warm.  But it sure was enjoyable getting together with them for a week of golf, even though when I returned I was greeted by one of the worst blizzards of the year.

Don’t forget there are great dining spots all over the area with something to satisfy every taste and budget.

Nothing better than a day of golf with good buddies, at home or away.
