Q and A with GM Kyle Draper about Scottsdale Private Golf Clubs
As we Scottsdale Private Golf Clubs progresses through our construction for the Phase II enhancements, we thought it would be good to provide the membership of Scottsdale Private Golf Clubs with a brief FAQ outline for what to expect through the process and beyond. What follows are some of the questions that have been posed to staff and management over the past few weeks. As always, if you would like to keep up to date with the progress on this exciting Scottsdale Private Golf Clubs project, you can simply log in to the club website home page which provides a great vantage point to view where we are. Many members check with this option regularly as we average around 100 hits to the link on a daily basis! I hope this helps and if you should have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask!
FAQ’s on Phase II Is there an option to swim at the Community Center while the Pool is closed even if I am not a DC Ranch Resident?
Yes, please contact Cheri or Carter at 480- 342-7200 and you will be given a FOB to access the community center pool for lap swimming. Please note that FOB access will not be granted for any purpose other than for lap swimming.
Will the Scottsdale Golf Club current fitness room be open until the new facility is completed?
Yes, current fitness room will remain open until completion of the new facility after which point the ladies locker room expansion and new board room will begin construction. It is expected that this portion of the project will likely begin in May and be completed in 60 days.
What kind of activities will there be for my family while the pool is closed?
During the fall and early spring seasons, we will host movies on the back lawn, entertainment for kids during dinner service, Taco Tuesday in the Scottsdale Golf Club Clubhouse, games on the patio and putting green.
What is the name of this Scottsdale Golf Club Phase II building?
There will not be one specific name for the new facility. Instead, there is the new Fitness and Performance Center on the top floor of the new building. On the bottom floor of the building which includes the lockers, restrooms, and showers along with the Kids area which will continue to be known as the Corral with the space for the Tweens being known as the Hideout. Lastly, there is the new casual dining restaurant which will be known as The Ranch House which is a new indoor 60 seat offering poolside. The Ranch House will also feature a Poolside Bar unlike any other Scottsdale Private Golf Clubs.
Will the Scottsdale golf club pool have lanes for swimming?
There will be lap swimming available during certain times of the day with 4 lanes that are 75 feet in length which is regulation for short-course swimming pools. What are the depths of the pool and will a diving board or slide be added? There will be a beach entry section at the northwest corner of the pool leading to a max of 36” in kids area to 60” at deepest point of the main pool. Given the fact that the pool is much shallower than the previous pool, there will be no diving allowed, nor will there be a slide. We will however continue to offer the large play slide during certain club events.
Will there be a separate kid’s pool at Scottsdale Private Golf Clubs?
With the new design, we will offer one large pool with a beach entry area for the kids which is attached to the main portion of the pool. As was expected with the previous pool, parents are responsible to watch their kids when using the pool.
Will there be a lifeguard on duty?
At specified times there will be a lifeguard (weekends, themed dinners and events) but we will not have a guard on duty all the time.
What type of golf fitness programs will be offered at Scottsdale golf club?
As we finalize the equipment selection we will work at offering both private programming as well as group programming as determined by both our fitness team and golf professional staff. These details will be shared with the general Scottsdale golf club membership as we get closer to the launch of our new facility.
Will there be a mirror on the wall for golf swing checks?
There are mirrors on specific walls however Golf Clubs will not be used in the fitness center. There is a plan for Phase III improvements which would call for significant updates to our practice center which would also include a teaching center that would have golf simulator training. Currently the Club also has Trackman technology available with the professional staff to assist in game development.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the new Scottsdale golf club Facility in the Spring!
