The Estancia Club is set on a high desert plateau, underneath the northern slope of Pinnacle Peak – Scottsdale’s most famous landmark – where spectacular city views to the south and west are on offer. Tom Fazio designed this desert course and it opened for play in 1996 among the huge boulder outcrops and the saguaro cacti.

The challenging Estancia Club course occupies around 150 acres of a 640-acre parcel of desert that forms the prestigious gated golf development. Holes on the front nine rim the base of the mighty granite monument before the 10th climbs to higher ground where golfers enjoy several changes in elevation on their way back to the clubhouse.

The quartet of par three holes at Estancia is nothing short of sublime, requiring pinpoint accuracy from the tee to prevent a silly score being run up. The 3rd, 7th and 16th holes all feature greens surrounded by dense desert vegetation whilst the 137-yard 11th plays slightly uphill to a putting surface ringed by enormous boulders.

Description: The Estancia Club is set on a high desert plateau, underneath the northern slope of Pinnacle Peak – Scottsdale’s most famous landmark – where spectacular city views to the south and west are on offer.

On April 21st 2014, all greens were dug up for maintenance. Miraculously, by the first week in June, the green surfaces were restored – and at just 9 months old, they rolled with perfection. The Estancia leaves no stone unturned. By far, the best Fazio course in the Southwest of the country. The design variety, the change in elevation, the back-drops, the conditioning all aggregate to a magnificent experience. In a desert region where far too many holes look and feel the same due to the cactus dominated landscape, you’ll easily find yourself remembering every single hole at Estancia Club and wanting to go straight back to the first tee as soon as possible.
