Located just off the breezeway, you'll find a full-service golf shop and boutique, as well as a designated practice area with a practice hole that was specially designed for fine-tuning your short approach shots.


The warm and welcoming Arizona Grill at Outlaw specializes in modern Mexican cuisine and fresh takes on southwestern favorites. The signature breezeway leads to front door of the 70-seat dining room. The outdoor terrace includes member dining seating for 86 as well as an event lawn which can accommodate up to 200. Other food beverage outlets include a comfort station and pool café.
