The Ahwatukee Foothills area is the southern-most of fifteen “urban villages” within the Phoenix city limits. It is considered a highly attractive employment center with easy access to the freeway system, Sky Harbor International Airport, and a dense population. The Foothills’ largest residential development, built primarily in the 1970’s, surrounds the Ahwatukee Country Club. Arizona golf legend John Bulla designed this 18-hole championship course by mixing the beauty of its desert landscape with a challenging yet fair layout to create a memorable golf experience. The 6,713 yard, par-72 layout combines lush, tree-lined fairways, beautifully manicured greens and multiple tee locations to provide an enjoyable test for all abilities. Wide fairways along a fairly level terrain with some scattered trees and mounding require the player to keep the ball in play. All putts break away from South Mountain, fooling many golfers who play there even on a regular basis. The green complexes are medium in size and mostly flat, with open fronts that invite low running pitches and chips. Many of greens have sand traps positioned on one or both sides, and in total there are 32 bunkers scattered about the course. Lakes come into play on six holes, and these hazards are particularly daunting on the par three 4th and 14th holes, as well as the par four 6th. The club features a 13,000 square foot clubhouse with pro shop plus restaurant that is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch, and dinner menus. There are locker rooms with showers for men and women and a targeted grass range plus two putting greens round out the practice facilities. Lessons of all types are available at this property, which serves host to the local high school golf teams. Ahwatukee Country Club was operated as a private facility for 35 years until turning semi-private in 2009. It is currently part of a four course portfolio in Phoenix and Maricopa where a single, discounted membership is available for the group. The CC&R's at ACC allow for some form of lodging development at or near the clubhouse site. It would be considered a boutique hotel and must be affiliated with the golf course operations.
