Mirabel Golf Club | Scottsdale

Mirabel Golf Club sits at 3,000 feet on more than 700 acres, high above the Valley and proffering some of the area’s most eye-popping panoramic mountain views of Pinnacle Peak, Lone Mountain, Black Mountain, the McDowell Mountains and Bradshaw Range. The elevation has more perks that just pretty views; the more temperate climate means more chances to enjoy the Tom Fazio-designed course and The Desert Lodge Clubhouse’s amenities, from swimming at the resort-style pool (with private cabanas) to taking a swing at the championship-caliber clay tennis facility. mirabel.com.

What’s New: Members and guests are sure to see two new faces around Mirabel this fall. Now happily serving the membership, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Marcie Mills is the newest addition to the Mirabel Golf Club team. She returned to Arizona in August after time at LedgeRock Golf Club in Pennsylvania. Executive Chef Brandon Gauthier is another new addition, heading up the kitchen at Mirabel Golf Club. He received his degree in Culinary Arts from the Scottsdale Culinary Institute before going on to work for Chef Kevin Binkley, most recently as the chef de cuisine for Binkley’s Restaurant Group.
