Encanterra, A Trilogy Country Club among fastest growing private clubs in Arizona

During the first nine months of 2010, Encanterra, a Trilogy Country Club, the most awarded new private club in Arizona, added 36 new golf members and more than 50 social members, making it one of the fastest growing private clubs in the state.

“This continues to be a challenging market for private club operators,” said Chris Schwartz, director of golf for Encanterra. “We have been very fortunate to grow as quickly as we have.”

Encanterra’s membership is not limited to the residents of the community it anchors. Rather, Encanterra offers a variety of non-resident memberships with flexible financing options, making it an ideal choice for those looking for an affordable private country club in the East Valley.

Schwartz continued, “People have responded well to both the golf course and the club, and I think our relatively low price when compared to the amenities we offer is really resonating with potential members.” 

Primary among their amenities is the exceptional golf course created by PGA Tour veteran and former Ryder Cup Captain Tom Lehman and his Lehman Design Group. The course boasts an all-too-rare core-style layout, reminiscent of the storied old country clubs of the Southwest, and has been selected one of the best new private golf courses in the nation by GOLF Magazine, Golfweek and LINKS Magazine. Set with panoramic views of the Superstition and San Tan mountains, the core layout folds the course inwards, away from residences and all distractions. In this way, a heightened golf experience becomes the sole focus. It’s a challenging course that rewards careful evaluation of risk, club selection and using the nuances of each hole to an advantage.

In addition to championship-caliber golf, Encanterra offers the signature Trilogy lifestyle in a private country club setting. The entire community exudes the Old-World charm and welcoming ambiance of a Mediterranean countryside village. Yet it affords members a host of decidedly modern luxurious amenities such as a spectacular club with a lush day spa, state-of-the-art fitness facilities and resort-style and junior Olympic swimming pools at the club’s newly opened 60,000+ square foot clubhouse, La Casa. Plus, Encanterra offers an inviting restaurant and café offering everything from inspired world-class dining to convenient casual fare.

Currently, there are five membership categories: Golf, Social, Associate, International and Invitational available at Encanterra. A Social membership is required upon purchase of a home at Encanterra, and a Golf or International membership is optional for an additional initiation fee. Non-residents of Encanterra may join the club via an Associate or Invitational membership. These membership categories grant equal access to all amenities.

All memberships are right-to-use (that means no member assessments) with flexible three-, five- and 10-year financing programs available for initiation fees and low monthly dues with unlimited access to golf. For a limited time the club is offering a variety of special introductory offers for membership.
