Cactus League: Baseball, Sunshine, & Golf!
When temperatures hit record lows and winter is in full force in the majority of the country, it’s a great time for those in colder climates to escape to Arizona. The desert has a lot of appeal this time of year; temperatures in the 70’s, clear skies, sunshine that never ends….and fantastic winter golf conditions! But there is no better time to visit Arizona than mid-February through March as the Valley of the Sun welcomes Cactus League Spring Training!
The greater Phoenix area welcomes 15 major league baseball teams for for Cactus League play each Spring. While pre-season baseball is an appealing feature for the surrounding residents, the Cactus League draws quite the crowd of out-of-towners escaping the cold to catch their favorite baseball team in Spring Training action.
If you happen to be a fan of the Cleveland Indians, Cincinnati Reds, Los Angeles Dodgers or Chicago White Sox and plan to make the trek to Phoenix for Cactus League games this spring, you’re in luck! These teams stadiums have close and easy access to Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear - home of the new “West” Course
by Phil Mickelson Design
and 27-holes of Championship Golf. In fact, located just 1 mile north of the I-10 in the West Valley, Palm Valley Golf Club’s location is accessible by fans of all teams located throughout the Phoenix-area.

For those visiting the Valley to catch multiple Spring training games, our 3 courses allow you play a different layout each day.
