Whisper Rock

Whisper Rock

Whisper Rock Estates is a golf-lover’s dream come true. The gated community offers residents a luxurious and laidback golf-focused lifestyle, par excellence.

With its 800 acres of prime real estate, Whisper Rock is located in far north Scottsdale, Arizona and features spectacular custom homes built on multi-acre sites, as well as sumptuous lock-and-leave villas for those who prefer to spend their summers in cooler climates.

Regardless of lot size, Whisper Rock homes are snuggled together in the dramatic high Sonoran desert setting with views of the stunning rock formations, after which the community got its name.

Each site is specifically designed so that home owners can enjoy Arizona’s spectacular sunsets and the pristine desert landscape; unique to this part of the southwest with its ancient saguaros, breathtaking boulder-strewn terrain and shady mesquite, juniper and palo verde trees.

The diverse yet complementary architectural motifs are soft, subtle and sophisticated and are influenced by Native American and Latin American styles, reflecting similar environmental conditions. Personalized homeowner services are available, allowing you plenty of free time to check out the numerous nearby amenities and in particular, the Whisper Rock Golf Club.

Developed separately from the residential community, the Whisper Rock Golf Club is an exclusive golf club where membership is not based on property ownership, but instead is based on a sponsorship and invitation-only basis. As non-equity, right-to-use Club, membership is limited to 290 golf memberships per 18 holes, enabling members to enjoy the best possible access to the courses.

The Whisper Rock Golf Club consists of two first-rate courses; the Lower Course and the Upper Course.

Opened in March 2001, the Lower Course was designed by architect Gary Stephenson and perennial PGA Tour leader and ASU graduate, Phil Mickelson (Mickelson graduated from ASU in 1992 with a degree in Psychology). The Lower Course was the first course designed by Mickelson, and he refers to it as a “…second-shot course. We don’t have the same second-shot two times in a row.”

The Tom Fazio-designed Upper Course opened in January 2005. The layout features lots of grass, native desert trees, shallow bunkers and numerous elevation changes; most notably on the par-5 number-three that drops 40 feet from tee to green. Many pro and scratch golfers are club members and the Upper Course keeps everybody intrigued with its 81 bunkers and five sets of tees, ranging from approximately 5,300 yards to over 7,500 yards.
