Although it is situated amongst a residential area, Encanterra Country Club's golf course has a "core" design that works inwards so that there are no homes or other obstructions that can serve as distractions on the course. This design, reminiscent of older country clubs and unfortunately rare among contemporary golf courses, also provides stunning views of The Superstition and San Tan Mountains. The large, undulating greens are paired with strategically placed bunkers for some interesting challenges. Water hazards come into play on some holes as well. Encanterra Country Club's layout features a variety of different lengths on each hole, requiring the use of every golf club in the bag.

Fabulous condition.....

Played course twice and loved it, great layout, lots of bunkers and lots of water, greens really nice, pin placement was very good and tricky, fortunate enough to play it. Pace was great and lucky enough to play it on great weather.

Nice Track!

I was lucky to play this private course and it was a very nice and forgiving course. Much different than the traditional desert courses in the area. Very forgiving off the tee and the course was in great shape. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Course

This is the premier course in the SE Valley. It is tough to imagine better turf conditions anywhere else. The entire staff is very welcoming and helpful. I can't wait to go back again now that I know the course a bit better. Excellent high-end, country club experience.

Beautiful Course

Great course to test your skills. Wide fairways and several tee boxes to choose from for each skill level. A lot of sand traps and greens that run fast and true.

I have belonged to this course for 5 years. Never get tired of playing Encanterra. Wide open fairways, with many bunkers and difficult greens. This all adds to fun of playing the course.

A Gem in the Desert

We are building a home at Encanterra and got a chance to play the course last summer. In spite of a very hot stretch of weather, the course was in excellent condition. The fairways are wide open and encourage hitting driver a lot! The greens and huge and multi-layerd and quite challenging. Can't wait to make Encanterra my home course.

Outstanding layout

Great experience. Terrific green complexes, with varied levels and unique shapes. Most holes are wide open but there are a couple of short, tight holes on the back. One of the best layouts in the east valley.
