Welcome & Accolades

A Welcome from Classic Club’s

Welcome to Classic Club!

I invite you to join us for what is sure to be one of your most memorable golf experiences. At Classic Club, we strive to bring you exceptional and world-class golf by going above and beyond in every aspect to ensure you have a truly memorable day.

Our 18-hole Arnold Palmer Signature Design has been home to numerous prolific professional and competitive events; originally opening for the PGA Tour’s Bob Hope Classic from 2006-2008. However, with generous landing areas, yardages ranging from 4,219 up to 7,322 yards, and elevated tee boxes providing a 360 degree view of dramatic mountain vistas, Classic Club is truly a work of art that any and all skill levels will enjoy.

Additionally, our practice facility is second to none. Boasting a two-tier, double sided driving range with numerous bunkered target greens, two multi-use short game areas, and a 12,000 sq. ft. putting green provides you with every opportunity to prepare for your round. Our experienced PGA Professionals are uniquely skilled at evaluating your game, creating an individualized lesson plan for all abilities, ultimately leading to more fun on the golf course.

Once off the course, take a few steps up to our three-story, 63,000 sq. ft. Tuscan-inspired clubhouse and home to the award-winning Bellatrix Restaurant. End your day on the links by enjoying a refreshing beverage and a Mediterranean-infused menu, ranging from small plates to fine dining.

If you’re looking to entertain your guests in style, select one of our many venues: private rooms, banquet facilities, or a night under the stars by our waterfalls and lakes. Classic Club offers complete indoor and outdoor packages for groups ranging from 10 to 1,000 people, making the clubhouse and golf course the preferred destination for valley residents and visitors providing exceptional services with experience levels that rival the best private club environments around the world.

We look forward to hosting you and are confident that your overall experience with us from golf to dining, will be second to none. Whether it is your first or 100th time with us, we happily welcome you to Classic Club.
