Scottsdale is open to some world class desert golf at very affordable rates! Here are some top course recommendations - there is plenty more than just these:
We-Ko-Pa Golf Club offers two beautiful 18 hole courses 30 mins outside of the entertainment district (most likely closer to where your Airbnb will be). The club offers some awesome 36 hole packages ranging from $125 - $395 depending on time of the year (winter months are more expensive). The club has a delicious lunch menu for in between rounds and a multiple beverage carts that are never too far away. If you have a crew that wants to play 36 this is tough to beat.
Troon North Golf Club is another 36 hole golf club located a bit further from downtown and a bit more pricey. Troon is consistently rated as top courses and public golf clubs in Arizona. Desert golf at it’s finest with beautiful views of the mountains as a backdrop make this tough to beat. The experience doesn’t stop on the course - the beautiful clubhouse offers world class dining and exceptional service. The crew can’t go wrong at Troon North.
TPC Scottsdale- play where the pros play! TPC Scottsdale is home to the Waste Management Open and presents a great opportunity to play a course home to one of the PGA Tours most popular events. The property even offers 36 holes if the crew wants to spend the whole day there. The Stadium course is the one the pros play, but the Champions course is beautiful as well! Rates depend on time of the year, week, and day but can go from $100 to north of $300. Make sure you book this one in advance!
Top Golf Scottsdale- If the whole crew doesn’t want to golf (or it’s too hot to be in the desert sun all day), then go drink some buckets of beers and hit some balls at Top Golf. Online 10-15 minute ride outside of Old Town, Top Golf is a great way to spend a hot day outside. They offer some great bachelor party packages as well if you call ahead, or just walk in and rent a few bays for $30-$50 an hour. Don’t worry if you don’t have a reservation - there are two indoor bars to drink up and watch a game during your wait
Looking for ideas of things to do in Scottsdale on your bachelor party? You’ve come to the right place:
A great day time activity for those groups that don’t want to play golf. There are a number of shooting ranges in the Scottsdale area with different packages for bachelor parties. Prices can vary depending onsize of your group and which guns you and the fellas want to give a whirl.
Best Option: Scottsdale Gun Club - an indoor shooting range close to downtown, perfect for those scorching hot Arizona summer days. With 32 air conditioned shooting ranges and a wide variety of guns to rent this spot is tough to beat. Rentals are by the hour and costs vary based on your firearms of choosing. Reservations are for members only so make sure you call first.
Ripping through the desert terrain on an ATV is not a bad way to spend a Friday or Saturday in Scottsdale. There are plenty of great ATV rental spots in the area.
Option 1: Desert Wolf Tours - Voted Arizona’s Best ATV Tour service, DWT is an hour from Old Town but worth the trip. A 3 hour ATV adventure with some awesome 4 seater ATVs goes for ~$175/guy depending on the time of year. There is even a machine gun option where you can fire a mounted machine gun on top of the ATV - great way to spend the day.
Option 2: Desert Monsters Tours - A great option that is much closer to Old Town (30 mins). ATV tours last for 2-2.5 hours and go for $150 (two seater ATV) or $200 (single) per person.
If your crew isn’t into the Scottsdale golf scene then your best option is a pool party. Get the biggest day of the weekend going early and enjoy the beautiful desert weather at one of the pools. Beautiful girls, cabanas, and talented DJs is the perfect way to spend a Saturday on a bachelor party.
Best Option: Maya Day & Nightclub - Scottsdale’s only Vegas-style pool party - this is the spot to be on Saturday from 1PM to sundown in Scottsdale. This spot boasts a beautiful pool with cabanas, an attached nightclub, and big name DJs. A cabana/table with bottle service are available for different price levels (minimums range from $4,000 - $1,500 depending on the set up).
Old Town is the spot to be at night in Scottsdale. Great clubs with table and bottle service for the crew line the streets and are packed every weekend night. Table service minimums usually fall around $2,000. Head down to Old Town once the sun goes down and you’re guaranteed a good time.Best Club/Bar Options:
Bottled Blonde is the go-to spot in Scottsdale. Most competitive place to get a table but this club is the Scottsdale staple.
Dierk's Bentley Whiskey Row is the original Dierks bar - head here if you want to hear the DJ rip a few country jams in his set.
Riot House is Old Town’s newest hot spot. Beachy theme with open front gives this spot an indoor/outdoor feel. This place attracts high quality DJ talent as well. Guaranteed good time here.
Bevvy has less of the Vegas-like feel and more of a sports bar, but still gets rocking at night. This gastropub has top notch food, some fun bar games, and even offers off track horse betting until 2 AM.
Scottsdale is home to couple casinos that are within a 15-20 minute drive outside of Old Town. Talking Stick Resort and Casino is far and away the best and more luxurious of the options. The resort is also a great option for a place to stay for those bachelor parties that really love to gamble and don’t want to go the VRBO/Airbnb route (the resort has a pool for day parties, golf course, nice restaurants and more).
Also known as the “Wasted Management Open”, this is one of the best events on the PGA tour and is the biggest party in all of golf. Held at TPC Sawgrass (25 mins outside of Old Town) on the same weekend of the Super Bowl, this tournament always includes all the PGA tour stars. Head to the course early to get a seat at the famed 16th stadium hole where spectators spend all day being as loud as they possibly can. If you go to Scottsdale on this weekend then this is a must! General Admissions tickets usually run at only $60.
The greater Phoenix area is spring-training home to 15 MLB franchises. If your bachelor party is in late February or March this is a great day time activity for the group. 3 teams are in the general Scottsdale area: Colorado Rockies & Arizona Diamondbacks (25 mins away from Old Town @ Talking Stick) and San Francisco Giants (right outside of Old Town @ Scottsdale Stadium. Tickets are cheap and the beers are perfect for hot desert day!
Good food may be the most important key to a great bachelor party, and luckily Scottdale has plenty to offer for both big dinners and quick stops. Hopefully the crew likes TexMex!
Breakfast Club - Good old fashioned delicious diner to saddle up and lick the wounds of the night before. Breakfast Club is right in the Entertainment district and won’t let you down.
Los Favoritos Taco Shop - nothing fancy about this local taco chain, but if you are staying northeast of Old Town, we highly recommend hitting this place up for some breakfast burritos
Butters Pancakes & Café offers delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A great spot to grub up and put a little hair on the dog. Pro tip - put your group on the waitlist via Yelp before you arrive so you can get right to it
Beverly on Main is a hidden gem - not only is it an awesome gastropub with live DJ and great cocktails, it also has an open kitchen until 2 am on Friday and Saturday night. Grub out on the “midnight brunch” menu after a long day of partying
Mr. Mesquite Street Tacos is the go to spot for late night tacos outside the clubs of the Entertainment District. Open to 3 AM, it’s tough to go wrong with anything on this delicious menu at this quick stop spot.
Joe's New York Pizza - What’s drunk food without pizza? Open to the 3:30AM and located right outside the bars in the entertainment district, this place won’t let you down when your looking for that post-club bite.
A VRBO/Airbnb is definitely the way to go for Scottsdale. There is plenty of great inventory just outside of Old Town for very affordable prices. The market has adapted to this being a great spot for bachelor parties - if you plan in advance you are guaranteed to find a well-priced option with a pool and plenty of beds
You basically want to stay as close to Old Town as possible. Scottsdale is tall and skinny on the map and the further north the more affluent the neighborhood. Bachelor parties are going to run through the Entertainment District of Old Town, so being close to there for easy Ubers is a must! If your crew desires a big house with a pool you may have to go 10-20 mins outside of this area to the Northeast in neighborhoods such as Scottsdale Highlands or Scottsdale Monterey
That’s right. For the price of a couple beers each, you can have your entire bachelor party planned for you. Get in touch with us today to learn more.
