Scottsdale/Phoenix/Tucson Relocation Options


Recommended Posts

Hey all!

So I need some help. I have been around TST for years. Participate on and off, mostly off recently. I am in my mid-50's, 10 hcp and was able to retire early and live the life!  My financial situation can be described as solidly middle class retirement. I can't be frivolous but I am OK.  Found the perfect situation in Las Vegas and the last 3 years have been great. Well the course sold and I am not too pleased with the new owner. So investigating a change. The problem is that the things most important to me are the hardest to research on the web. I will probably be a snowbird but who knows what life brings. 

Here is my criteria in pretty much priority order of what I am looking for. So  just shoot out suggestions and I start listing them below.

1) Great course that challenging but playable every day

2) Several different groups/cliques that a guy could find regular games with. Never know which one you will bond with so there has to be options.

2a) Active tournament and men's/ladies club schedule

3)Private carts allowed

3a) Golf cart neighborhood

4) Decent real estate prospects

5) Reasonable F&B service and selection

6) Good staff and service

7) Good cost benefit

 

There is my top 7. The private cart situation my be ranked a little high on the list but the golf cart lifestyle is really cool. 

 

Lets see what you got! Thanks in advance.

There are tons of great options, especially in the Scottsdale area. (I assume you are looking for a private club?)  That said, budgets over there are all over the place.   I mean, I could send you over to Whisper Rock, or Silver Leaf...   but I'm just gonna go ahead and guess you won't be affording those.  (not that just anyone can become a member there anyways).  

I've played Arizona Country club, which is very nice, and from what I understand is priced reasonable.  I've played Terravita in Scottsdale as well, which is nice, it also sits next to a 55+ community.   The golf club itself is not 55+, but I think darn near 100% of the members there are.   

As far as numbers 2-5..   This is Arizona.  there are tons of snowbird members at all clubs all winter long.   you should be good wherever you choose.

I would check out Legend Trail.  Don't know the details re: your requirements but looks like a great neighborhood and a very playable, challenging course.  I'm not sure they allow private carts, thought.  Just don't know.  Also DC Ranch.  I'd also look in Fountain Hills.  SunRidge Canyon, Eagle Mountain.

El Conquistador in Oro Valley, suburb of Tucson. Two golf courses on property owned by the city and run by Troon. Fits most or all of the criteria with room for subjectivity as to how one defines "good" staff and service, cost benefit, etc. My parents are members there and I go down several times a year. Probably played at least fifty rounds there by now. Never any complaints. Solidly middle class.
