Ancala Country Club’s spectacular 6,815-yard, par-72 championship golf course was designed by Perry Dye – the son of the iconic Pete Dye and part of the prestigious Dye Designs group – in the shadows of Scottsdale’s majestic McDowell Mountains.
Indigenous trees and rugged desert terrain frame emerald fairways and manicured greens, with desert ravines and several lakes and other picturesque water features adding to the stunning beauty and strategic diversity of this target-style layout.
While challenging for scratch golfers, the course features five sets of tees on each hole, enabling golfers of all ages and abilities an opportunity to enjoy the course’s imaginative design and playability.
Ancala Country Club is as known for its immaculate conditioning as it is for its environmentally-friendly agronomic practices. In recognition for the club’s efforts to protect wildlife habitats, preserve the environment and conserve natural resources, Ancala has been certified by Audubon International as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System – a global designation signifying excellence in environmental stewardship. From placing nesting boxes around the property for cavity-nesting birds including bluebirds and swallows, to using integrated pest management techniques and water-conserving irrigation systems, the club is dedicated to blending seamlessly with its pristine natural surrounding while enabling golfers to appreciate and commune with nature.
Ancala Country Club’s magnificent golf course is complemented by an array of upscale golf amenities, including an expansive golf practice center featuring a driving range, putting and chipping greens, and practice bunkers; a full-service golf shop offering the latest premium-brand golf merchandise and apparel; and an extensive player development program for juniors and adults taught by top PGA teaching professionals.
