Consider Ancala Country Club Golf in Scottsdale, AZ

Ancala Country Club, Scottsdale ArizonaTo look at the social calendar, golf activities calendar or the great menu served up at Ancala Country Club in Scottsdale, it’s easy to see why Ancala, located at 120th Street and Via Linda in Scottsdale, is such a popular club with its residents and members.  It would also help explain why their residential property values have held strong over the past few years of real estate upheaval. 

Ancala’s popularity is earned on just about every level.  Their club house is well managed, under the direction of Charles Zimmer, General Manager (480-391 ext. 220;  czimmer@eagle.com.) There is an member-friendly restaurant and grille bar, plus plenty of outside dining that serves up an enormous view of the Valley of the Sun.  There are always fun social activities like wine tastings, book clubs, dive-in movies for the kids, fitness sessions and dine-arounds to join.  Members find the facilities accommodating, from the recently updated fitness center, the active tennis program or the world-class golf course.  Interestingly, the community has been sold out for many years, and it’s unusual to find a member-run club that offers this many activities when the original developer leaves the scene.  The club is expertly managed by Eagle Golf   http://www.eaglegolf.com/layout9.asp?id=155&page=2371

Golf at Ancala:  Recently named one of the “Top 5 Golf Courses in Scottsdale” by GolfLink.com, the rating organization had this to say about the impressive golf course:  Without question, Ancala has become one of the most prestigious country clubs in the state because of its target-style layout and it requires you to hit long yet precise shots to score low. The club's immaculately kept fairways are crisscrossed by ravines that keep you on your toes for the entire 18 holes.  Ancala is almost 6,900 yards long from the back tees, yet it has four closer tees on each hole so that it is accessible to all golfers, regardless of skill. From the championship tees, it has a whopping slope rating of 152.”
