The Rio Verde Experience
When visiting Rio Verde you will experience a sense of family and belonging to something like no other. Rio Verde prides itself on being an "arms wide open" club and there are no greater people than our members. Rio Verde provides the complete active adult lifestyle with a real down home feel. With Rio Verde's exclusive location we are close to everything yet so far away from the hustle and bustle of city life. 

Spend your time enjoying one of the many activities offered between the community center and Club or venture out to the surrounding McDowell Mt. Preserves and Tonto National Forest. The opportunities for fun and adventure are endless.

Our Courses
“We’ve created golf for all levels of players to enjoy.” - Tom Lehman, PGA Tour Professional and former British Open Champion

Rio Verde features two traditional-style courses with a soft desert look. They are more 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 a few years ago, he achieved his vision of creating two uniquely distinct courses, giving members a never-ending variety of golf experiences.

Quail Run has all the elements of a traditional golf course, and White Wing plays more as a links style course. Common to both courses are meticulously groomed fairways, greens loaded with personality, and outstanding mountain views.

Club Tournaments
“Rio Verde has the best golf events with the perfect combination of good golf and fun after-golf socializing.” - Gary and Diana Mercer, Colorado

Rio Verde has golf events and leagues for all levels of play, from casual to competitive. We have men and women’s 18-hole leagues, a niners league for women, and a fore-fun group for men wanting to play a more causal game. All the leagues play twice a week and host a range of events. Couples are invited to play in monthly events that are followed by lunch or dinner. Women and men also enjoy competitive traveling teams where members play golf at some of the best private clubs in the area.

Highlighting the winter golf season are the club’s three major member/guest invitational events: the Sonoran Desert Classic for couples, the men’s Anasazi, and the women’s Desert Quail. Each year, our members and club staff go all out to make these events memorable, with parties, dinners, dances, and, of course, great golf.
