Each year in Arizona, when temperatures begin to fall north of the comfort line, it’s easy to want to pack a suitcase and book a flight to anywhere but here. If you stray too far, you may be missing out on some of the best fun Arizona has to offer.
The 2015 expansion and renovation updated the clubhouse bar and dining experience to allow for a larger bar room and private dining venues that feel more like a restaurant atmosphere. By 2019, the club will boast renovated areas for fitness, teens and childcare.

The only thing better than Arizona sunshine and moonrises are the delicious foods of the Southwest. In the North Valley, it’s not only the smoky bite of anchos, the kick of serranos, or the fun in experimenting with prickly pear, saguaro seeds and other desert bounty that makes for a good meal; it’s the brilliant infusion of local ingredients with other national and international flavors to create something wonderful.
If you live anywhere in Arizona, you know that Larry Fitzgerald is more than kind of a big deal, on and off the field. He’s dedicated his entire professional career to the Arizona Cardinals and his personal time to charitable causes. He’s breaking records and earning a reputation both as a football great and an all-around good guy.
PB&J Breakfast bars are the perfect on-the-go snack! Skip the peanut butter and jelly—these bars are packed full of protein and good fats! I use grain-free granola and found dried strawberries at Whole Foods. For storage, these are great kept in the refrigerator.
