Desert Bathing, Prickly Pear, and Red Rocks with REI — Inside the Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North

In the midst of the Texas cold snap, I yearned for a winter retreat. Somewhere warm where restoration was the focus. Scouting out my base camp for my winter getaway, I wanted to focus on wellness, relaxation, and being outside as much as possible. In my research, I came across an activity I’d never heard of that caught my eye at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North: Desert Bathing. My fate was sealed. I was off to Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Backstory — Four Seasons Scottsdale

Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North opened at the end of 1999 on the site of the historic Crescent Moon Ranch. In the 1940s, enterprising homebuilder George Ellis designed and built Crescent Moon Ranch in the Pinnacle Peak area for cereal heiress Lois Kellogg Maury. Maury used the adobe and redwood main house, two guesthouses, and a bunkhouse as a finishing school for wealthy debutantes, in addition to renting out guest cottages on the 127-acre property to seasonal visitors. The property has operated under the Four Seasons flag for more than two decades, and has undergone $20.7 million in renovations in 2016.

The property is designed to blend harmoniously with the surrounding Sonoran Desert landscape, with a “desert chic” look that mirrors the area’s natural tones. Cozy casitas sprawl throughout the property evoking an adobe pueblo-style village, with low-density buildings, authentic design, and the tones of the desert. The standout feature of the rooms is the spaciousness, the connection to place (all rooms feature a terrace or balcony), and the gas-burning fireplaces. The suites feature expansive patios, a wood-burning outdoor fireplace, private plunge pools, and outdoor garden showers.

Even though it was warm during the day, I had the fireplace running each night inside the casita. It played harmoniously with the crisp night air and star-soaked sky.

Let's Rodeo Houston!

Wellness is a major pillar of the Four Seasons Scottsdale. In 2022, the property introduced Desert Bathing, which is similar to Forest Bathing in its focus on engaging the five senses in a natural setting. This “Desert Bath” underneath the Arizona sun was exactly what I needed. Walking in a natural environment and consciously connecting with nature was the ultimate reset I needed to start the year.

Before my day at the spa, I took a yoga class that was the perfect start to my wellness-focused day. In a state of pure relaxation, I was transported to more moments of bliss at the hotel’s full-service spa, offering treatments that utilize desert botanicals (including the Nopal Massage, using real cactus paddles). One of my favorite and simple wellness moments was soaking up the January sunshine at the saltwater pool.

Although I wanted wellness to be the driving force of this getaway, I was ready to splurge when it came to culinary delights. Luckily the food and beverage program encouraged my desires. One recurring ingredient on the menu included a Scottsdale delicacy: prickly pear. I’m still thinking about that prickly pear margarita that reminded me of pink Starbursts.

The two restaurants on Four Seasons Scottsdale property include Proof (a more casual gathering spot) and Talavera (a fancy, yet unpretentious evening dining scene). Proof was laidback with approachable menu items like pretzel knots and signature items from the smoker. Talavera is known for its signature Spanish dishes, including paella, which they’ll also whip up for vegans. The churros at Talavera were my absolute favorite. Speaking of sweets, the Scottsdale team just welcomed Executive Pastry Chef Yudith Bustos, who recently moved from the Dallas property.

Although there was an abundance of activities to do on-property and never leave, there are equally that many off-site adventures in the desert. Four Seasons Scottsdale partners with the local REI office to offer a series of custom adventures including an aerial tour of Sedona’s red rocks landscape, complete with Arizona wine tasting. There are also custom adventures that include stand-up paddleboarding, hiking, and pedaling peaks. And when in season, hot air balloon flights are one of the most iconic offerings. This is still on my bucket list. And I spied many golfers heading over to Troon North Golf Club, when I was hiking up Pinnacle Peak.

The 10 best Troon Golf facilities in Phoenix and Scottsdale

For the most part, golfers don't care who manages, operates or owns the courses they play.

They just want everything to go as expected - a chance to play a fun course in good shape with a friendly staff that keeps the pace of play moving and the facility clean.

However, when you're visiting Phoenix and Scottsdale in the winter, it's wise to know which facilities are managed by Troon Golf, the game's largest operator. Troon, which manages 630 clubs around the globe from its Scottsdale headquarters, was recently named the "Management Company of the Year" by BoardRoom Magazine for the eighth consecutive year. You can generally rely on its courses to be well-kept and well-run.

When it's high season in the Valley of the Sun, tee times can be hard to come by. There are multiple ways to approach booking a tee time at a Troon Golf facility. Investing in a Troon Card could make sense for you. Cardholders can reserve tee times within three days and still enjoy up to 50 percent off of green fees. Other benefits include 2-for-1 offers, complimentary clinics, monthly specials and more. The $529 fee for an Arizona Twosome card might sound like a lot, but if you're a visiting snowbird who plays a lot of golf all winter, you should be able to recoup your money. Many Troon facilities are also on GolfNow.com, offering dynamic pricing. Or if you're just looking for a vacation getaway, GolfPass offers nearly two dozen golf packages featuring Troon courses (many are linked below).

Now, where should you play? This is an incredibly tough question to answer. I felt guilty choosing the top 10 courses because that leaves so many excellent options out. Instead, I've chosen the 10 best facilities (which still leaves a few good ones out) and let you decide ultimately where to play. It's essentially splitting hairs whether the Monument or Pinnacle is the best course at Troon North, the OG of the Troon family. The same logic applies for the Devil's Claw or Cattail courses at Whirlwind Golf Club and the North and South courses at The Boulders. They're all good.

How did I ultimately choose these 10? I created an informal system to weigh different criteria, including my own personal favorites, GolfPass review data, the number of holes, driving distance to reach the course from the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport and additional facilities (like a resort or casino). Here goes:
