The Mirabel Club in Scottsdale recently was honored in the fall issues of two prominent national golf publications as being among the top private golf clubs in North America. Golf Digest Index, a special limited distribution publication by Golf Digest tailored to its top readership demographic tier, named Mirabel among “America’s 50 Best Modern Golf Clubs.” The rankings were compiled by Golf Digest’s panel of 800 course-raters and were limited to golf courses built between 1990 and 2005.
Two other private Scottsdale clubs, Estancia and Whisper Rock, appeared on the list.
Meanwhile, LINKS magazine, one of North America’s leading golf lifestyle publications, named Mirabel among “America’s 100 Premier Properties.”“We couldn’t be more honored,” said Bob Lomax, director of sales for Mirabel. “We always intended Mirabel to be an intimate, family-oriented private club experience where members would be welcomed by a staff who took the time to get to know their individual preferences and interests.
“We have an outstanding golf course and have developed a wonderful selection of amenities and services to give our members a superior lifestyle. Being recognized by these two prominent national publications is terrific feedback to let our staff know they are serving our members well.”
Mirabel, located two miles east of Pima and Cave Creek Roads, was developed by Scottsdale-based Discovery Land Company. The club features a Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole golf course and a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Desert Lodge Clubhouse.
In addition to world-class golf, amenities at the club include a state-of-the-art fitness center, offering personal trainers and the most current cardio and strength training equipment, as well as a movement studio for aerobics, yoga and Pilates classes. There also is a private day spa that specializes in massage therapy, skin care treatments, salon services, and other innovative and restorative spa services.
Mirabel also offers championship clay tennis courts in a beautiful tennis garden, a spectacular resort-style swimming pool with private cabanas and personal attendants, and an immaculately landscaped event lawn that includes areas appropriate for bocce ball, croquet or other leisure activities, as well as outdoor picnics, parties, and social functions.
A limited number of Mirabel memberships, as well as choice home sites and finished custom homes, are available without the requirement of property ownership.
