Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Scottsdale, Arizona

The Deal

Play After the Pros Play: two nights in a room with a patio and a wet bar; one round per person on the Stadium and Champions courses at TPC Scottsdale; transportation to and from golf; half-hour video swing analysis

The Golf

The Champions, formerly called Desert, reopened in November after being completely renovated. Lengthened and fitted with new bunkers and contours, it’s no longer the insipid sister to the famed Stadium, host of the notoriously well-attended FBR Open.

Price

From $885 per person until April 5; from $832 until April 15; from $718 until April 26

Radisson Fort McDowell Resort & Casino Fountain Hills, Arizona

The Deal

Golfer’s Golf package: one night in a room with Native American decor; green fees for two, with cart, at We-Ko-Pa (whose second course, Saguaro, opened in late 2006), SunRidge Canyon or Eagle Mountain; breakfast

The Golf

Designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, Saguaro belies the notion that desert golf means target golf: Here, the bump-and-run is often the best option. And with tee boxes set close to the preceding greens, golfers can easily walk the course.

Price

From $609 per room per night until April 5; from $509 until April 27

The Broadmoor Colorado Springs, Colorado

The Deal

Spa and Golf Getaway: room with mountain, lake, fairway or city views; one round per person, with cart, on either the East Course or the West; seventy-minute deep-tissue massage; club storage; breakfast allowance

The Golf

The East, a parkland design by Donald Ross and later Robert Trent Jones Sr., hosts this year’s U.S. Senior Open. The West shares that pedigree and sits more than a mile high. The Nicklaus-redesigned Mountain should open for the season in May.

Price

From $380 per person per night, available through April 30

Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Nevada

The Deal

Fore: stay in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip in a room with a sitting area and marble bath; one round per person at the Rees Jones–designed course at Cascata Golf Club; limousine ride to and from the course

The Golf

You’ll find little flat terrain on this scenic course, woven through the desert scrub at the base of Red Mountain about a half- hour southeast of the Strip. The eighteenth, one of eight holes that have water, is a downhill double-dogleg par five.

Price

From $550 per person per night, available through August 31
