For those who like to live large, Scottsdale’s WHISPER ROCK ESTATES features custom homes that range in size from approximately 4,000 square feet to more than 10,000 square feet, with homesites spanning one to four acres. The landscape surrounding Whisper Rock features sandy bottom washes, boulder outcroppings and lush desert vegetation. Residents can enjoy five miles of walking paths; a three-acre private park with a ramada, tennis courts, a basketball court, a large turf area and fitness facility with a fitness pool; and the Caretaker’s House, the social hub of the community.
JOIN THE CLUB
For 13 years, the first course (designed by Phil Mickelson and Gary Stephenson) at Whisper Rock has been a favorite of local golfers. (The second course, designed by Tom Fazio, and The Whisper Rock Golf Club itself, opened in early 2005.) The club offers a full caddy program and a “core” design with no housing within its routing. Note that Whisper Rock Golf Club is wholly separate from Whisper Rock Estates, and membership is available on a sponsorship-only basis. whisperrockestates.com.
