A Little Piece of Paradise

Rio Verde

Speak to those who live and play in Rio Verde just northeast of Phoenix and you’ll probably hear:

“This is the perfect fit for our lifestyle!”

Originally a slice of what was known as Box Bar Ranch, the bucolic property nestled along the Verde River on the edge of the Tonto National Forest is as stunning today as it was when the developers first envisioned it as an ideal retreat for golf and nature lovers alike. Wrapped in blue skies and Arizona sunshine, Rio Verde feels far away, yet is still a short drive away from spectacular restaurants, theaters, shopping, museums and more. Truly a total club lifestyle with spectacular weather for being outdoors and staying active, Rio Verde is tailored perfectly to fill the days with endless opportunities to connect and build friendships that deepen over time.

Golf is elemental to this full life. Members play for both the thrill of the sport and pure joy of the game. And whether they’re out to play for three hours or three holes, Rio Verde’s professional staff, extensive practice facility, and open fairways provide plenty of opportunity to get into golf. Unlike many private clubs, Rio Verde’s members don’t have food and beverage minimums or pay trail fees (non-residents don’t pay to use the club’s carts). Full Membership provides unlimited access to dining and events, plus 36-holes of parkland-style golf, driving range, three putting greens, and bunker/chipping complex. Because Rio Verde Country Club is managed by Troon, members can request tee times at over 500 private, resort, and daily fee courses worldwide. When combined with fantastic food (dine in, take out, or they’ll deliver!), social calendar, and signature events, members stay as busy as they please.


Those seeking a little piece of paradise are invited to see firsthand what makes Rio Verde the perfect home away from home.
