Stately and grand, the Adobe Course was built in 1928 out of the vision and desire of chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, Jr. He persuaded Riviera and Bel-Air Country Club architect, William Bell, to design what was one of the first courses in Phoenix. Little wonder that it became an Arizona Classic.all for more information.
A TRADITIONAL STYLE GOLF COURSE
The par 71, 6,586 yard Adobe is a true parkland course that treats its patrons to generous, sprawling fairways, while challenging them with numerous, hungry bunkers. Set against the backdrop of the picturesque Phoenix Mountain Preserve and the far-reaching southern skyline of downtown Phoenix, the Adobe provides views as breathtaking as the course itself. This is why the Adobe Course is one of the best Phoenix golf courses in the valley.
I like the links course a little more than Adobe. Adobe is a more back and forth, it always seems like someone is shooting into you, fore being yelled quite a bit and you're always looking our for flying balls. Get some good views, but I'd probably try and play the links course.
Nice course, the Adobe course seems more like a links course actually. For a good majority you're switch-backing between holes, so on a busy day there might be golf balls flying from any which direction. Good scenery though!
