JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort recognized as one of Condé Nast Traveler’s top golf resorts in the world

JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa, the largest luxury resort in Arizona, has been named one of the top five golf resorts in Arizona and ranked as one of the top golf resorts in the world by Condé Nast Traveler magazine. This accolade designates JW Marriott Desert Ridge as a distinguished, high-quality and respected golf resort globally.

Condé Nast Traveler is in its 16th year of creating the “Top 121 Golf Resorts in the World” poll. Results are derived from a reader’s choice survey consisting of eight criteria questions: course design and access, golf staff and services, guestrooms, service, food/dining, location, overall design, and activities/facilities. With nearly 29,000 responses from readers of the leading travel publication, results were averaged to determine the overall score.

JW Marriott Desert Ridge’s Wildfire Golf Club was selected as a top finalist for its two scenic 18-hole courses designed by PGA legends, Arnold Palmer and Nick Faldo. The Wildfire Golf Club has been known to test the skill level of all golfers, while providing some of Arizona’s most breathtaking views and atmosphere the Valley of the Sun has to offer.
