Luxury Resort’s New Club Offers Year-Round Amenities

Now local Valley residents can enjoy resort amenities year-round at Arizona’s largest resort, JW Marriott Desert Ridge, including spa and salon treatments, pool and fitness access, unlimited golf and tennis, and daily entry into Cloud Club lounge. Of course this new luxurious club membership at Desert Ridge in North Phoenix comes at a hefty price; but if you’re willing to front the money, it is oh so worth it.


Launched in March and already accommodating 12 new members, JW Marriott’s new club is seeing a great deal of interest as its three-tier plans offer such unrestricted access to the famed resort, according to The Arizona Republic.

All three memberships, Platinum, Gold and Silver, include access to Desert Ridge’s pools, tennis courts and fitness center.

The Platinum plan with the most access and amenities is sold for $30,000, along with an $875 monthly due. This plan includes unlimited golf with no cart or trail fees at its two courses in the Wildfire Golf Club, eight spa treatments or salon services per month and four passes per day to the resort’s fourth-floor Cloud Club lounge, which offers complimentary food and cocktails.

The $20,000 Gold membership, with a $575 monthly fee, features unlimited golf and a 25 percent discount on desired spa treatments. Or guests who desire pampering over golf, can have eight included spa treatments or salon services and half off Wildfire’s greens fees in their Gold package.

Those who opt for a Silver membership will pay $10,000 and $275 per month which includes half off greens fees and 25 percent off spa services.

All members will also enjoy Marriott Reward Points, room and restaurant discounts and special golf privileges at 40 Marriott golf clubs, including the Camelback Country Club, Starr Pass in Tucson and the Doral in Miami, according to The Arizona Republic

    Whoa $30,000?! That’s madness. Sounds pretty cool, but that’s a lot of $$$! I didn’t know JW Desert Ridge was the largest resort in AZ…good to know!

  • Elise says:

    When we lived in Tucson we paid a similar fee for resort membership without even an option for the spa treatments or unlimited golf. This is something worth looking in to if you are close to Desert Ridge. Great for a family as well.

    That does sounds like a lot of dough.
