Chaparral Pines’ private championship golf course is an 18-hole, par-72 masterpiece designed by former U.S. Open and PGA Champion David Graham and noted Scottsdale-based architect Gary Panks. It was named one of Golf Digest’s “Top 10 New Private Golf Courses in the U.S.” when it opened in 1997 and consistently ranks among the magazine’s “Top 10 Private Golf Courses” in Arizona.
Situated at an elevation of 5000 feet, The Rim offers a challenging golf experience for all levels of golf play. This beautiful course can be played from 5,200 to 7,200 yards, with forested fairways woven through dramatic rock outcroppings and the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the country. The natural elevations and native vegetation enhance the strategic challenge of the hazards, with water coming into play on six holes. Best of all, the course continually frames the breathtaking splendor of the Rim Country, with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and forest on every hole.
