Rio Verde Voted No. 1 'Private Golf Course,' 'Active Adult Community' in Ranking Arizona Opinion Poll
Rio Verde Country Club and Golf Community - the award-winning resort community northeast of Scottsdale - has been voted the No. 1 "Private Golf Course" and "Active Adult Community" by Ranking Arizona: the Best of Arizona Business.
Each category in the state's largest business opinion poll is selected by AZ Big Media and is based upon the preferred business and leisure activities of Arizona's business professionals. The rankings, published annually by Arizona Business Magazine, include more than 250 categories and 2000-plus entries.
"Private Golf Course and Active Adult Community are two of the most competitive categories in the Ranking Arizona poll, and we're honored to be the people's No. 1 choice," says Ken Kelley, General Manager of Rio Verde Country Club. "Our golf courses, activities and amenities create a true resort lifestyle for our members, and our broad-spectrum of real estate ranges from low maintenance villas to custom estate homes."
Residents and business leaders throughout Arizona vote via the official Ranking Arizona website. The top 10 in all categories are invited to the "Best of the Best Bash" on Thursday, April 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Venue Scottsdale.
"New residents immediately feel comfortable and welcome at Rio Verde," adds Kelly. "A Midwestern sensibility and hospitality permeates the community. Even our traditional golf courses are atypical for the region, with ample turf and limited forced carries across desert areas."
The Lehman Design Group renovated Rio Verde's Quail Run and White Wing golf courses - a $6.5 million project modernizing both layouts while retaining their "soft desert" playability. Par-72 Quail Run - playing to 6,602-yards - sports a traditional design reminiscent of America's great Midwestern golf venues. The par-70, 6,535-yard White Wing features links-style elements such as fairway mounding, open green fronts and stacked-sod bunkering.
