GOLF EVENTS & TOURS

WELCOME TO A NEW ERA IN INTERNATIONAL GOLF TOURS – “PIRANHA GOLF TEAM TOURS”

A brand new concept of International Golf tours is now being offered to keen golfers who thrive on a Golfing challenge (and a great golfing holiday). Piranha Golf teams will challenge golfers from all parts of the World in a “Ryder Cup” format over three rounds.

Come to Arizona with Piranha Golf Tours and take up that dream of always wanting to represent Australia.

If you would prefer the Golfing experience without the challenge, golf will be confirmed on the same courses without the team challenge.

Our first venture is to Arizona, USA where we will play golf against the local members at some of the leading Golf clubs in and around Phoenix / Scottsdale.

This trip will take place departing on 20th February, 2015 and will be followed by similar Team Tours to other destinations within the USA as well as places like China, Malaysia, Dubai, South Africa, New Zealand etc.

Join one of our team departures or create your own team from your local club or group of Golfers and we will plan a tour pitted against local golfers from around the world.

In time, invite the same Golf clubs to travel to Australia and sample our courses and Aussie Hospitality.

The state of Arizona, USA, offers over 200 Golf courses, unique in that most are built around the desert with some amazing scenery as well as being both challenging yet rewarding.

Piranha Golf, Australia’s only Golf Manufacturer, has offices in Phoenix as well as other destinations nominated above.

We have the right contacts to ensure you will play the best courses, meet the local golfers, stay in the best resorts, enjoy the hospitality of the locals and build international friendships that can last a lifetime, experience the destination and have a Bloody Good time as well as play some Golf.

Get a couple of your Golfing friends and join the Piranha Golf Team in Arizona, February 2015.

Please contact me for further details and bookings.

Good Golfing

Full Day at Leisure

Tour: Sedona Day Tour (Optional)

Piranha-Golf-Sedona-Day-Tour

A vista of unforgettable sights unfolds before you from the moment you enter Sedona.  Often called “Red Rock Country” Sedona is one of the most spectacular sites in Arizona. Whether you’re into history and archaeology; arts and culture; power shopping; outdoor sports; or the spiritual and metaphysical, imagine doing all this in a backdrop of some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.  The splendour of Sedona begins as you approach along the highway and revel in your first views of the towering red rock mountains that surround this quaint city.  As you draw closer, these natural sculptures circle you, wrapping you in a crimson embrace.  It is this first encounter with the red rocks of Sedona that has enchanted visitors for generations.

Shopping in Sedona is more of a sightseeing adventure than a stop in a mall. Sedona’s shopping districts are nestled among the town’s world-famous red rocks, and Tlaquepaque Arts & Crafts Village is a replica of Guadalajara, a charming town in Mexico.  Teeming with artists and artisans; boutiques, galleries, food emporiums, New Age metaphysical shops, specialty stores, and one-of-a-kind shops; Sedona has so much to discover.

Montezuma’s Castle: Gaze through the windows of the past into one of the best preserved cliff dwellings in North America. This 20 room high-rise apartment, nestled into a towering limestone cliff, tells a 1,000 year-old story of ingenuity and survival in an unforgiving desert landscape.  The group will stop here en route to Sedona; there is a level, paved trail 1/3 of a mile in length.  Wayside exhibits along the self-guiding trail describe the cultural and natural history of the site.  Stop is approximately 30 minutes.
