Hit a hole-in-one with this week's escape to the lush and luxurious Zona Hotel and Suites in Scottsdale, Arizona.

With its modern décor and deluxe accommodations, this 14-acre resort will add style to your swing.

Tee up for a one-night stay for two in a spacious king-bedroom suite ($95) complete with a private balcony or patio overlooking the garden. With the added benefit of a reduced resort fee (you pay just $10 extra), you and your caddie can score the hotel's top amenities at a price that's far below par.

When you're ready for 18 holes, consult with Zona's professional golf experts to arrange an exclusive outing. Grab your clubs and head to one of the area's 40 championship courses, all within driving distance.

Sit out a round to splash in the waterfall pool — one of four at the hotel — or sip a cocktail while lounging in the cabana. Then, swing by Asada Desert Grille to purchase a meal of delectable grilled fish or savoury smoked meat.

After a day on the links, unwind at the 19th hole and enjoy the dazzling nightlife that has recently emerged in Scottsdale, which The New York Times says is "rethinking itself in ways that are as apparent as they are ambitious... with celebrities descending on places like Suede, Axis/Radius, and the Pussycat Lounge — all about a block apart."

Those who wish to bypass the green can take Zona's complimentary shuttle to Downtown Scottsdale for world-class shopping at more than 2,000 boutiques and stores. Or, immerse yourself in a gallery that's free of fans with a trip to the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.

You'll shoot to the top of the leisure leader board at Zona Hotel & Suites with an ace-in-the-hole escape that's a stroke of genius.
