Golf in the Desert...

The Colonel and I , along with a couple of golfing pals, recently returned from a wonderful trip to the desert in Arizona for four days of golf. At the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort, we enjoyed several rounds at the Wildfire Golf Club on two courses designed by Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo. Weather was cool, though pleasant. An amazing change of scenery for me, I was enthralled with the flora and fauna found there, such as this fishhook cactus and a Black-crowned Night Heron.
Great food and drink as well as abundant walking paths are featured throughout the property.

I stopped to take a look at an on site herb garden which provides the restaurants with fresh herbs year round.
