Rio Verde Country Club: Membership Made Simple in the Valley of the Sun!

   Rio Verde Golf Course

A Private 36-Hole Golf Community Unlike Any Other

Rio Verde is a 36-hole private golf community located just 15 minutes east of North Scottsdale, Arizona. Rio Verde offers a complete active adult lifestyle with a real-down home feel. Our golf membership, with its open arms approach, has over 12 men’s, women’s and couple’s groups to help welcome members and create a camaraderie like no other. On top of these groups, Rio Verde offers an active Couple’s Golf Association, Men’s Golf Association and one of the largest 9 and 18 hole Women’s Golf Associations in the Valley.

Rio Verde’s Full Membership provides unlimited access to 36-holes of parkland-style golf, a driving range, three putting greens, a bunker/chipping complex, and a full calendar of golf and social events. Because Rio Verde Country Club is managed by Troon Privé, members can request tee times at over 500 private, resort, and daily fee courses worldwide.

Rio Verde features two traditional-style courses with a soft desert look. They are Midwestern in style with a lot more grass than one would imagine in a desert setting. When Tom Lehman led the $6 million course renovation project, he achieved his vision of creating two uniquely distinct courses, one having elements of a traditional golf course and the other plays more as a links style, giving members a never-ending variety of golf experiences. Common to both courses are meticulously groomed fairways, greens loaded with personality, and outstanding mountain views.

Rio Verde is insulated from the hustle and bustle of city life, but within reach of all that the Valley of the Sun has to offer. Spend time enjoying Rio Verde’s many activities or venture into the surrounding McDowell Mountain Preserve and Tonto National Forest.  The opportunities for fun and adventure are endless. Rio Verde has all the amenities you need for an active lifestyle including tennis, pickle ball, an art studio, fitness center, community church, library, hiking trails, biking and more.

“After many years of hectic travel on the PGA Tour and PGA Tour Champions, we discovered the peaceful sanctuary that is Rio Verde and Rio Verde Country Club.  We could not be happier, not only are the views and surroundings spectacular, the people are truly warm and genuine.”

Rio Verde Country Club recently completed a $3.75M renovation to our clubhouse and proudly offers our members and guests the Box Bar Grille at Rio Verde. Rio Verde Country Club membership is a gateway to a full golf and social experience here. Rio Verde is the place where people are welcoming and lasting friendships are made over a game of golf, a glass of wine, or wherever there is common interest.

With a “Membership Made Simple” approach, members do not worry about cart fees, trail fees, or minimums when belonging to Rio Verde Country Club.
