New Year’s Resolutions in Full Swing!

2018 New Year’s resolutions have been set and people are in full swing trying to accomplish their resolution. Popular resolutions every year revolve around people promising to change an undesired trait or behavior, to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life. Most people want to eat better, look better and feel better in 2018.  So many people set a resolution to maintain a healthier diet, while others promise to get exercise more regularly.  These are some of the common goals we hear about regularly.

An article from the Huffington Post, presented an interesting fact, only 8% of people actually keep their New Year’s resolutions.  There are a number of reasons people can’t stick to their resolutions, from setting too many of them to getting derailed by small failures. Often times individuals simply set their resolutions to high.  It is rare to see a resolution that involves doing something fun in 2018.  Although, eating kale and skipping dessert may be fun to some, for the large majority of us we aren’t interested.

People around the New Year talk about cutting carbs, or running everyday… How often do you hear that someones resolution is to drink and hangout with friends more often. It would be nice to set resolutions such as: take more vacations, try new foods, play more golf, indulge in activities that challenge me both physically and mentally.  It’s a new year which calls for new resolutions. Don’t waste your time with recycling an old resolution that you never kept years ago. It’s time to wipe the worries of not sticking to your resolutions away and focus on resolutions that make you happy.  


Dust off your clubs, stock up on tees and forget about all those unrealistic resolutions. Enjoy your golf game even more this season by taking up these New Year’s resolutions.

Dining and Special Events with a View

Golf is not the the only action at Eagle Mountain to take advantage of the wonderful views. The Grille serves up breakfast, lunch and early afternoon appetizers behind floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the golf course and the Southeast Valley. Wednesday night’s Boarder Disorder dinner buffet offers a hearty helping of Southwestern-inspired fare and drinks specials.

The Overlook Pavilion dresses up as an idyllic wedding location for ceremonies, receptions and other special events. This climate-controlled facility opens to a neatly manicured event lawn. Of course, the same wonderful views are on full display. At sunset, it’s one of the dreamiest places on the planet.

The Courtyard Scottsdale at Mayo Clinic sits just down the hill; We-Ko-Pa Resort is minutes away in Fort McDowell; and nearby CopperWynd Resort offers incredible views from the other side of the McDowell Mountains.

Visitors from across the globe travel to the Valley of the Sun to play golf this time of year.  Thanks to our perpetually sunny skies, golf is a year-round gig in Arizona.

Starting on January 8th-14th, people will be traveling from all over to escape the cold temperatures to celebrate a week long celebration of golf in Scottsdale, Arizona. When picking places to play during Scottsdale Golf Week it makes sense to choose at least one that captures the unique spirit of golf in the Sonoran Desert.

Unique Sonoran Desert Golf Experience
