Golfers willing to stay way out on the eastern outskirts of the Valley of the Sun (a 30- to 45-minute drive from the airport) will be thrilled by the economical room rates and great golf at this resort. At the foot of the Superstition Mountains, Gold Canyon is a favorite of golfers for its exceedingly scenic holes. The spacious guest rooms are housed in pueblo-inspired buildings; some have fireplaces, while others have whirlpools. The deluxe golf-course rooms are definitely worth the higher rates. If you’re here primarily to play golf and don’t have a fortune to spend, this is the place to stay.
