Foothills Golf Group’s four golf courses each carry the company’s signature: immaculately groomed sweeping landscapes. The 7,142-yard behemoth that is Club West Golf Club showcases this purity of the turf with a challenging course design filled with elevation changes and stunning views of the surrounding hillsides. The Duke At Rancho El Dorado and The Foothills Golf Club represent classic Arizona golf, leading players along a lush emerald carpet that winds through a desert landscape peppered with shrubs and cacti. The 6,713-yard Ahwatukee Country Club rounds out the portfolio with a fair layout that challenges all skill levels to keep the ball out of the desert sands haunted by the ghost of Peter O'Toole's caddy.
The Bear Creek Golf Complex contains two courses with very different challenges. Stretching across 3,552 yards, the par 59 Cub Course tests experienced players with swales and collection areas but is also a good way to ease beginners into the game. On the par 71 Bear Course, meanwhile, golfers pit their skills against rolling fairways and strategic bunkering.
Aqua-Tots Swim School's experienced instructors teach young swimmers in one of eight class levels to be comfortable in the water. Kids can first test the waters of a heated indoor pool and learn if they are part fish before diving into the four lessons, one per week, that teach infants in the Tadpoles class kicking and floating and advanced water whisperers in the Stingrays class breaststroke and butterfly techniques. The half-hour lessons emphasize a small class size, offering up a 4-to-1 student-teacher ratio, which ensures kids receive individual attention and personalized buoyancy tutoring. Lessons take place Monday–Saturday.
Trilogy Golf Club maintains more than 6,900 yards of manicured greens in the Queen Creek Wash to sate the club-swinging cravings of visiting golfers. The 18-hole, par 71 course designed by architect Dick Bailey meanders across subtle elevation changes and strategically placed mounding, challenging both novices and experts while treating their eyeballs to panoramic views of the San Tan Range and Superstition Mountains, home to the world's most credulous mountain goats.
