While Yuma's golf courses are not nearly as impressive as those at the resorts in Phoenix and Tucson, there are certainly plenty of them, and you can't beat the winter climate. The Mesa del Sol Golf Club, 12213 Calle del Cid (tel. 928/342-1283;, off I-8 at the Fortuna Road exit, is the most challenging local course open to the public. Greens fee is $50 during the cooler months ($41 for twilight play). On the other hand, the Desert Hills Golf Course, 1245 Desert Hills Dr. (tel. 928/344-4653;, has been rated one of the best municipal courses in the state. Greens fees range from $35 to $48 during the cooler months.
