Awards & Accolades
Since opening in January of 2008, Encanterra has received a wealth of glowing reviews from essentially every significant golf publication in Arizona, as well as hearty praise from regional and national publications. A few samples are below, and when you come to the Club, you'll be able to see our quickly growing "Wall Of Fame."

Encanterra has been named among the Top 10 New Private Courses in the U.S. by GOLF Magazine’s panel of golf course design and architecture experts. The announcement was made in the publication’s January 2009 issue.
GOLF Magazine’s ranking panel is comprised of 100 members, representing 15 countries. They include major-championship winners, Ryder Cup players, architects, leading amateurs, journalists and a cadre of nearly a dozen course connoisseurs who've had the doggedness to play all Top 100 Courses in the World. There are no set-in-stone criteria for GOLF Magazine panelists. However, they do consider how a course tests the full range of skills, design rhythm, variety, setting and conditioning, among other aspects. Yet, the weighting of these is left to the individual preferences of the publication’s panelists.
