“We’ve created golf for all levels of players to enjoy.” – Tom Lehman, PGA Tour Professional and former British Open Champion
Rio Verde features two traditional-style courses with a soft desert look. They are more Midwestern in style with a lot more grass than one would imagine in a desert setting. When Tom Lehman led the $6 million course renovation project a few years ago, he achieved his vision of creating two uniquely distinct courses, giving members a never-ending variety of golf experiences.
Quail Run has all the elements of a traditional golf course, and White Wing plays more as a links style course. Common to both courses are meticulously groomed fairways, greens loaded with personality, and outstanding mountain views.
One of the great benefits of living in Rio Verde is each homeowner is a Social Member of the Country Club. Rio Verde also offers its residents three great golf membership opportunities to enrich their active lives even further. Being part of the Club provides you with a complete social and golf membership experience. Unlike most private Clubs in Arizona, Rio Verde offers its members complimentary trail fees and no food and beverage minimums.
Full Golf: The Full Golf Membership affords you the opportunity to experience all that Rio Verde has to offer.
Individual Full Golf: The Individual Full Golf Membership offers the same great benefits as the Full Golf Membership* but for an individual member with reduced monthly dues.
Experience Golf Membership: Want to get a feel for the private club experience before making a full commitment? Then we have the membership opportunity for you. The Experience membership provides either the full golf or individual golf benefits from 3 months up to 12 months. For full details, please contact our Membership Director.

“Tennis is an important part of the Rio Verde lifestyle, and we couldn’t ask for better facilities. Rated play here is the best we’ve ever found.” – Sue and Roger Kuhl, Minnesota
Grand games of tennis are played on Rio Verde’s six Nova’ProBounce courts, two of which are lighted. You can play casual games or join the tennis club and play in leagues, on traveling teams, and in rated tournaments. The club’s frequent mixed-doubles events followed by BYOB potlucks are always popular.

The shop offers racquet stringing, demo racquets, and ball-machine rentals, as well as the latest, most fashionable tennis outfits.

“Rio Verde has excellent pickleball courts. The community has made a real commitment to this sport.” – Darlene Dailey, Colorado
One of the hottest new sports, pickleball has many enthusiastic players here. Rio Verde has four courts and provides balls and racquets for guests and those wanting to give it a try. Even those who have never picked up a racquet enjoy playing for pleasure, exercise, and lots of laughs. We offer casual play and competitive tournaments.
You can always find a game and a fun group at the pickleball courts.
Rio Verde’s bocce ball court is a favorite gathering spot. This ancient Italian game closely resembles bowling and requires a bit of skill and strategy and a little luck. It is best played during cocktail hour with a nice glass of Italian wine or in the club’s Bocce, Beer, and Brats tournaments.
The Club at Rio Verde offers a casual dining experience for lunch and dinner. The Pub serves as the “19th Hole” for golfers and social members alike. Catch up on your favorite game or event on one of our big screen televisions or enjoy lunch while overlooking the practice facilities with the McDowell Mountains in the background.
The Copper Room, which is currently closed during our renovation, affords our members with a great dinner outlet with some of the best views of four peaks and the Mazatlan Mt. range. Our patio features a fire & water feature to create a great setting for your dinner with a loved one or a group of close friends.
Throughout the year, the dining experience is always full of activities and events.
“We love hiking and biking in McDowell Park. Just knowing this parkland will always be here makes us smile.” – Jack and Jill Arnold, Michigan
Rio Verde is a hiker’s paradise, with the three-million-acre Tonto National Forest and 21,000-acre McDowell Mountain Regional Park just outside our front door. Rio Verde even has its own trailhead into McDowell. The park is open to hikers, mountain bikers, and horse-back riders. Pick any trail and enjoy towering saguaro cactus, desert flowers, birds, and the occasional large-eared jackrabbit.
Tonto National Forest extends from Rio Verde to northern Arizona. The forest is a wilderness, with rugged, unmarked trails and wild horses.
Hike in solitude or with friends, or join the Rio Verde hiking group, which organizes monthly, guided hikes throughout the area.
Golf Course Walking Trails
Every morning before the first tee time, Rio Verde residents are invited to walk or jog the cart paths of the golf courses. You can even walk your dog on a leash. A great way to start your Rio Verde day!
“We not only bike together at Rio Verde, many of us have become such good friends we take biking trips together.” – Ken and Grace Vos, Michigan

“Join us and venture into the Tonto National Forest wilderness with the Rio Verde Saddle Club.” – John Williamson, Ohio
Established in 1979, the member-owned club provides facilities and full-time care for members’ horses. Located at Rio Verde Ranch, near the Verde River picnic area, the club’s facilities include a 14-stall barn, pens, exercise paddocks, a tack and food storage shed, and an exercise arena. The Saddle Club has an experienced on-site wrangler for feeding, cleaning, and general care of the horses and maintenance of the facilities. The riding season is from November to early May, with members caring for their horses elsewhere during the summer months. Saddle Club memberships are available to property owners in the Verdes.
