What to Expect: Terravita is a private club located in the golf rich community of Scottsdale north of Phoenix. The Billy Casper design is one of the most playable desert courses I’ve had the pleasure of visiting due to the extra generous fairways and greens. The course has little elevation change, however the distance between some greens and tees will discourage many golfers from walking the course. The course doesn’t rely on a dramatic stretch of holes to define itself and rather employs one solid hole after another thus bringing balance throughout the routing. The club is a big draw for Canadians looking to get out of the cold and now employs an annual America vs Canada Ryder Cup type competition. In addition to the golf, Terravita has developed a reputation as one of the best social clubs in the area due to the unpretentious vibe and great camaraderie among the membership.
