Phoenix: The inside game

Phoenix’s JW Marriott Desert Ridge, host of the 23rd Annual Clinical Meeting of the American Academy of Pain Management (tel: 209-533-9744;, September 20 through 23, has two 18-hole golf courses, but conference goers shouldn’t assume they’ll get a tee time there. Phoenix, aka the Valley of the Sun, gets 325 days of sunshine a year and the city boasts 200 golf courses, making the sport one of the reasons people flock there in fall and winter, and tee times hard to come by.

If you're staying at the Marriott, try to book your tee time when you make your room reservation, however, you may be told that you can only book the former 30 days in advance. Our advice? Book your time through Golf Xpress (tel: 888-679-8246; They have agreements with courses statewide, including the Marriott’s Wildfire Golf Club, and can guarantee tee times “30 days to one year in advance.”
