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.
