Course Review
By Nancy Howard, Editor/Publisher Arizona Golfer

One of the most exceptionally enjoyable, as well as challenging golf destinations in the Valley of the Sun, Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia, is always one our team plans on spending a full day at when golfing. Due to the beautiful sunsets, surroundings, peacefulness and outstanding dining options at the newly remodeled V’s Taproom with patio seating, why not? Great golf course, great practice areas, great breakfasts, lunch, and dinner offerings, great service and great value makes for one marvelous golf experience in Arizona. 

Tucked in the residential resort community of Trilogy at Vistancia is Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia, the only golf facility in Arizona to earn Golf Digest's Coveted 5-Star designation. Others judged to be of the same caliber include Bethpage Black, Pebble Beach, Bandon Dunes, TPC Sawgrass, and Spyglass Hill.

Designed by renowned golf course architect Gary Panks, the championship course draws upon distinctive land features and a backdrop of stunning Arizona scenery, with more than 70 pronounced and transitional bunkers, lush fairways surrounded by indigenous trees, cacti and a wide variety of native grasses and flowering plants, plus water features throughout.

The Club offers a large practice facility with driving range, putting and chipping areas as well as an outstanding clubhouse hosting the well-appointed pro shop and the newly remodeled V’s Taproom.

Hole #6 – par 4, 373 yards from the tips: Blind shot from the tee box and plenty of trouble for a go for it shot towards the dogleg right. Best results with a straightaway shot short of the bunkers on the left. That makes your second shot straightaway to a small and narrow elevated green protected by bunkers on left and right as well as bunker on back right. Don’t let yardage fool you, this is a challenging hole to think through…before your tee shot.

Hole #18 – par 5, 560 yards from the tips: One of the best finishing holes in the state! Tee shot needs to stay left center as the fairway rolls toward the rushing stream on the right that runs the length of the fairway. Protected by deep bunkers in front and back, the green can surprise you since it is narrow, if your approach shot is long, due to unseen water in the back. It’s just an excellent challenging finish to your round and a beautiful hole to behold.

Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia offers a variety of options for the avid golfer. Opportunities include Unlimited Play packages, Flex Pass options and special pricing on daily-fee tee times for Arizona residents. And, for Singles, great tee times are often challenging to attain, but single players can now play with a reserved time.

Trilogy Golf Club welcomes the general public to a grand community setting. This desert golf oasis sends a very welcoming message from the start as the Trilogy entrance cascades with beauty, literally. Sections of rushing waterfalls cascade over pebbled high walls. Floral gardens and more cascades lead the way to the bag drop where friendly attendees are ready to grab those bags. On a day hosting the Lake Pleasant PTO tournament, the operation was the epitome of efficiency. Cheerfully the team orchestrated cart returns, cleanups and turn arounds without missing a beat so that tee times were on time for all. Teamwork moved the event participants, members and public golfers along quickly delivering buckets of practice balls for the spacious driving range and practice green.  

Jeff the starter announced his goal to make us happy from the start. How could he fail? Golf at Trilogy Golf Club at Vistancia always makes for a happy day, despite the possibility of entering over 70 bunkers on Gary Pank’s design. Jeff advises carts to remain on the path or grass. Repetitive signs throughout the course warn, “Protect the native grass.” Search the clumps and if your ball is not readily apparent you can institute the safe local rule of dropping at entry point and taking a penalty stroke. Walk cautiously with a club and pay attention to the local habitat. A coyote was lazily strolling by hole number two. We wished him happy hunting. 

Hole #3, par 4, 416 yards – This might be considered a ravenous hole if balls are swallowed by the wash ravine that splits the fairway. Consider the correct layup distance to avoid entering the wash with little chance of recovery.  If the drive is too short, then a 200 yard carry will be a must. Avoid the right, side angle of the green as it severely slopes into a valley and you might feel like Sergio trying to get it back up in position without it rolling back again and again. It looks pretty but the result can be pretty ugly on this number one handicap hole.

Hole #7, par 3, 211 yards – Is ravenous a theme here? This par 3 requires quite a carry distance over more desert terrain. The green is guarded on both sides by fun (not if you don’t pop the ball out) bunkers. Not to worry, meet the challenge for a prized par and be rewarded by the next fairly wide-open hole. 

Hole #14, par 5, 564 yards – This is a fan favorite for the beautiful lake ending. An uphill fairway drive risks reaching bunkers left and right. Making the green in two is not that easy but possible. A large sand bunker front left may capture a short shot, and anything long will be swimming in the small lake that encircles the green. The water is hidden from view on the right side by trees and mounding. It seems like a straightforward green but beware, there are many ways to sleep with the fishes. In any case, enjoy the herons that hunt them.

Hole #18 par 5, 560 yards –This fabulous finishing hole is streaming with challenges. While a prairie dune jutting on the left side dares hitters to blast a big drive over it, a wide stream cascades along the entire right side of the fairway. A bit of rough on the edge can save a slow roll from drinking deep but too far right and you better have waders as waddling waterfowl watch gallery style. Surrounding water and sand make this a target green, entertaining the human gallery from the 19thhole patio of V’s Taproom, known as the neighborhood hangout for the Shea Home Community and welcoming to all. 

Now is the time to enjoy that great vibe, pub grub or salads and libations. The menu has something for everyone. Inside multiple sports are cheered on large screens. Outside the happening patio displays nature’s show.

Managed by Blue Star Resort and Golf, a variety of passes, golf instruction and leagues are available. A wide array of merchandise is displayed like a pretty boutique in the shop.

Happy Valley Road off the 17 or 303 leads golfers to their happy place at the “Best of the West.”
