he Valley of the Sun is entering the fall season and the weather is finally starting to cool down. And while the summers can be pretty warm here in the desert, there’s no doubt from November through April, the Phoenix and Scottsdale area – home to We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, Arizona’s Ultimate Golf experience – boasts the very best and most comfortable weather in the world.

The cool – not cold – winter temperatures, slight breezes and blankets of warm sunshine make Scottsdale one of the finest golf destinations on Earth. And after your round of either award-winning golf courses at We-Ko-Pa, there’s simply nothing better than watching the sunset on the patio over a glass of wine or a cold beer, a fabulous meal and great company.

The We-Ko-Pa Grille is certainly more than your run-of-the-mill golf eatery, serving up exquisitely prepared dishes from an eclectic menu offering everything from light and crispy salads to hearty entrees and local favorites. Whether you’re in the mood for a small snack or a belly-filling burger, you’ll find it at the We-Ko-Pa Grille – before, during or after your round.

The food is superb. The mood is better. The We-Ko-Pa Clubhouse, which plays host to the We-Ko-Pa Grille, is inspired by Yavapai culture and designed by world-renowned and Scottsdale-based architect Doug Fredrickson. For those unfamiliar with his work, award-winning architecture is in his DNA and he didn’t skimp on spectacular when building the al fresco dining area at We-Ko-Pa. A spacious patio complete with heaters and the warmth of a stone firepit serve as the setting for a perfect night out.

Other than world-class golf and unbelievable winter weather, Scottsdale is known for its stunning sunsets. The last flicker of sunlight fills sky with bright and vibrant purples, oranges and deep reds which illuminate nearby mountain ranges before dipping below the hills to the west. Patio dining at We-Ko-Pa – the cherry on top of an incredible afternoon.
