Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do I book a vacation?
A. That’s easy… Scottsdale Golf & Lodging will help you choose a hotel to fit your needs and we will book all of your golf tee times for you in advance. Need a rental car? We can add that too with discounted rates from Alamo, Hertz, Enterprise, and National Car Rentals. Just give us a call or send us an email and we can get started planning the golf vacation of your dreams!


Q. What is the cost?
A. Cost varies depending on the package that you choose. Prices vary for golf depending on the time of year that you want to visit Arizona and the golf courses that you choose. Based on the package you choose you will receive a proposal that can be modified at any time to fit your needs. Or, visit our Packages section for some preformed package ideas.


Q. How do I pay for my golf vacation?
A. A deposit equal to one night's hotel accommodations is required in order to confirm your reservations. The balance is due to Scottsdale Golf & Lodging 30 days prior to arrival.

Payments can be made with all major credit cards (AMEX, MasterCard, Visa, Diners and Discover), or by check or money order. Checks and money orders should be mailed to Scottsdale Golf & Lodging c/o Arizona Trails Travel Service, P.O. Box 18998, Fountain Hills, AZ  85269-8998

Q. What if I have to cancel?
A. Unfortunately sometimes it is necessary to cancel a trip. Our cancellation policy is simple. You will receive a full refund, less a $25 service fee, if cancellations are made up to one week (7 days), prior to your scheduled arrival. Within 4 - 7 days of arrival 25% of the total cost, (minimum charge $25), is non-refundable. Within 72 hours of arrival the entire deposit is non-refundable. 

Travel insurance is available to protect your golf vacation from last minute unforeseeable circumstances. Ask our reservation agents for a quote on travel insurance. 

All cancellations need to be made directly with Scottsdale Golf & Lodging, not with the hotel or golf courses.


Q. I need to change our tee time, should I call the golf course directly?
A. No, call Scottsdale Golf & Lodging and we will make all of the necessary changes.


Q. Will I need a car to get around?
A. The valley is pretty vast so a rental car is recommended. Scottsdale Golf & Lodging has an agreement with Alamo, Hertz, Enterprise and National for discounted rates. If you are interested in this discount, please let our reservation agents know.
