Press Release Body = PHOENIX (March 19, 2007) - You\'re in the Valley of the Sun, the cradle of Arizona desert golf, but it sure doesn\'t feel like fairway heaven from here.
In fact, the view from your hotel room is decidedly urban jungle. Red cranes stretch high into the sky, even higher than your soundproof, non-opening 20th-floor window. Steel beams gleam in the sunshine, the tiny dots of distant construction workers making their way across.
Welcome to downtown Phoenix. No golfer of sound mind would choose this zip code as a base for experiencing the region\'s wonderland of courses. But sometimes circumstances dictate the dilemma.
Maybe you\'re in town for business at the convention center, smack in the heart of downtown. Maybe you found a room rate you just couldn\'t pass up, what with ritzy golf resorts predominating in Scottsdale. Maybe your company put you here precisely because you\'re not supposed to be golfing.
\"I guess I got sort of a reputation for being the crazy golfer at my job,\" Craig Sanderson said, sitting in the lobby bar of the downtown, \'70s-vintage Hyatt Regency.
\"I probably told too many stories about the great courses I got to play on trips,\" Sanderson said. \"Because now they book me into this place every time and fill up my days with meetings.\"
