Whisper Rock Golf Club
Whisper Rock’s golf is a coveted 36 holes and has a membership list filled with names from the PGA Tour. The Lower Course was designed by Phil Mickelson and Gary Stephenson and opened in 2001. The Upper Course was designed by Tom Fazio and opened in 2005. Both courses were designed so that holes are grouped together, separated by ribbons of natural desert terrain. There are many holes where no homes are visible during play. Membership in the Whisper Rock Golf Club is by sponsorship and invitation only. Property ownership in Whisper Rock Estates is not required for membership and owning property in Whisper Rock Estates does not create any rights to membership.
