There is so much to do in our area, it doesn't get much better than golf in the desert and so many fabulous courses to choose from within a 20 minute drive. A visit to the Apache Trail is a must for hikers, boaters. Take a lake cruise, eat at interesting cafe's, visit a ghost town or go for a swim in nearby Canyon Lake. Truly a gem in the desert! We loved the the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, which is a world class Botanical garden which boosts over 2,600 different types of plants from deserts of Australia, North and South America, southern Africa and other arid-land regions of the world blended in to an incombarable natural setting. Check for classes, tours and education programs. Take along a picnic basket and don't forget to visit historic Superior at the end to your day.

Located in the South-east part of Valley of the Sun near many natural areas and just 45 minutes from downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale, Encanterra Country Club is one of the most successful & beautiful new private clubs and communities to open in Arizona during the past decade.
It is close to Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, Queen Creek, Gold Canyon, the Supersition Mountains, San Tan Mountains Regional Park and the spectacular Apache Trial from Apache Junction which takes you to Canyon and Apache Lakes for boating.
The private Encanterra Country Club is anchored by an award-winning Tom Lehman designed golf course - chosen among the Best New Private Courses in the nation by GOLF Magazine, Golfweek and LINKS Magazine - and La Casa, a beautiful 60,000-square-foot clubhouse featuring multiple fine and casual options, state-of-the-art health and fitness facilities, an exceptional tennis complex (which can also be used for pickle ball), three pools, and the full-service Alvea Spa, which recently was named the state's top Clubhouse Spa by Arizona Foothills.
By agreement you can take over our membership in Encanterra Country Club during your stay. This gives you entry to all the pools and country club and the right to play for a guest member fee up to 10 - 18 hole rounds or 20 - 9 hole rounds and use of the excellent practice facilities on game days for 2 on the Encanterra golf course.
If you stay 3 months there are additional opportunities for the use of the practice facilities and group lessons at a minimal charge.
For those that like to walk, hike or trial ride San Tan Regional Park is a 15 to 20 minute drive away. There is also good hiking in the Gold Canyon area about 20 to 30 minutes away. You also should not miss visiting the Boyce Thompson Arboretum east of Gold Canyon and 3 miles short of the city of Superior. It is world class and is truly spectacular for any nature lover.
For dog lovers, Encanterra has a very large grassy area near the house which is an informal dog park. It also has many small parks thoughout the property with trials between them.
Even though you are in the most natural and unspoiled and semi-rural part of the Valley of the Sun you can easily access the more sophisticated attractions of the Valley including other top quality golf courses such as Gold Canyon Dinosaur & Sidewinder & Ocitillo, various live theatres, music from classical to country, art galleries, pro sports teams, high end malls, outlet malls, downtowns and the Desert Botanical Gardens near the Phoenix Airport.
