The city suburb of Tempe, Arizona, USA is home to a number of attractive, lush and challenging golf courses. Many of these golfing clubs are open all year round, although visitors to Arizona who come from colder climates are likely to find the temperatures in July and August in particular little too high for enjoying a round of golf. Nevertheless the months of April, May and June as well as the rest of the year can make for pleasant golfing on the Tempe greens, surrounded by spectacular views in some cases.
