With year-round blue skies and mountains on three sides, the Greater Phoenix area offers more than 200 spectacular golf courses, with many designed by the greats like Robert Trent Jones, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.

It was Jack Swilling that decided that the Salt River Valley could become a fertile home. The brown dry soil was mostly free of rocks and located in an area relatively free of snow or frost. Jack Swilling devised and in 1867 implemented a plan to reopen the miles of irrigation canals first dug by the long gone Hohokum Indians.  In the following year a small community had formed about four miles east of the present downtown Phoenix.
