​Golf in Yuma www.visityuma.com/golf.html

With sunshine to spare and beautiful scenery in all directions, golf in Yuma is a natural. Over the years, our area has earned high marks from experts like Golf Digest magazine, in part because the ratio of courses to population keeps the sport so affordable.

With 16 diverse area courses offering a total of 234 holes, every golfer can find the right match, whether seeking a challenge or just some low-key recreation.
