December 13, 2007

“Being recognized as the number one golf destination in North America is a tremendous honor,” said Margie A. Emmermann, director of the Arizona Office of Tourism. “ Arizona’s golf courses are a tremendous tourism asset that brings thousands of tourists to the state, which contributes to the overall economic development of Arizona. Receiving this award is a wonderful way to highlight the more than 300 golf courses located throughout this amazing state. With more than 330 days of beautiful weather and sunshine, Arizona is truly a golfer’s paradise.”
