Arizona Country Club
Location: Tucked Between Thomas and Indian School at 60th Street. Clubhouse is located off Thomas Road and 56th Street.
The Arizona Country Club’s rich history dates back to 1909 when the then Ingleside Golf Resort was constructed that had a variation of golf holes with oiled sand greens. It quickly earned the distinction of being the first winter resort ever built in Phoenix. The original location was north of Indian School Road and the Arizona Canal. Then in the late 1920’s Ralph Murphy relocated the Valley’s first resort across the canal and built a new 18 hole golf course using common Bermuda grass.
In 1946, the golf course was redesigned and reshaped to reflect a new era of golf, and the Arizona Country Club was incorporated. It soon thereafter came to be the premier private club in the Valley and played host to the Phoenix Open from 1955 to 1973. Great names like Palmer, Nicklaus, and Player have walked the Club’s fairways and enjoyed the treasures of this great golf course.
As generations come and go, the Arizona Country Club has remained a staple in the Phoenix community. Now in its 67th year, Arizona Country Club is still going strong. Sons of sons of the Club's founders and original members are now a part of this Club’s history and they will continue in its historic traditions.
The golf course is surrounded by beautiful homes. Home ownership is not related to club membership, but many owners join the club to use all of great amenities within walking distance! The views are some of the rarest in the area: the large trees, green grass and distant mountain views.
