The Rim Golf Club ranked Number 16 among the Nation’s Top 100 Residential Courses

The Rim Golf Club, a private golf community bordering the Mogollon Rim in Payson, Arizona, again has received top marks from one of the golf industries’ most respected publications. In their most current rankings, Golfweek has placed The Rim Golf Club in the top 20 residential golf courses in the country.

Earlier in 2014, the prestigious Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish-designed course also was included on Golfweek’s ranking of all modern courses across the country, a list that refers to those built after 1960. Featured alongside very good company, The Rim Golf Club was one of only three Arizona courses to make the list, appearing at number 66 for 2014. Golf Digest, another well-respected golf publication, concurs with these impressive stats.  For 2013/2014 Golf Digest ranked The Rim Golf Club number 9 in Arizona.

 The recognition received by The Rim Golf Club only confirms what members have known for some time, and recently they were given an even greater opportunity to enjoy some of Arizona’s most impressive private courses.  With the launch of a new reciprocal membership program, The Rim Golf Club members now have access to Stone Canyon in Tucson, AZ. and Chaparral Pines in Payson, AZ. Golf Digest also considers Stone Canyon and Chaparral Pines among the best in the state, and has ranked them at 4 and 19 respectively.

While golf certainly is a highlight within the Payson community, The Rim Golf Club offers much more. Located amidst the 2.9 million acre Tonto National Forest, the community is comprised of 326 homesites on 555 acres. Residents of this exclusive community are offered unparalleled membership opportunities that can be individually tailored to provide access to golf amenities, spa and fitness facilities, and the 29,000 square-foot clubhouse and its extensive offerings.

Residential opportunities within The Rim Golf Club include the community’s newest offering, The Heritage Collection, which was introduced in September 2014 by Diamond Ventures, Inc. The collection consists of homesites ranging from one-half to one acre and take advantage of spectacular views and leisurely golf course living. Home options within The Heritage Collection include three floorplans that range from 2,582 to 4,577 square feet, and fully embrace the indoor/outdoor lifestyle available in Payson’s temperate climate. Pricing for The Heritage Collection starts in the mid $700,000s.
