The Rim

The course is the ultimate collaboration of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish. It can be played from 5,200 to 7,200 yards, with fairways woven through dramatic rock outcroppings and the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the country. The natural elevations and native vegetation enhance the strategic challenge of the hazards, with water coming into play on six holes. Best of all, the course continually frames the breath-taking splendour of the Rim country with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and forest. Thanks to Payson's mild climate, avid golfers can enjoy year-round golf.

"Playability" is the hallmark of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish Golf Course designs and it is the number one priority of The Rim Golf Club! According to Weiskopf-Morrish principles, a great course must be enjoyable for players of every level. Each hole must create a risk and challenge, and every hole should reward a well-planned and executed golf shot. True to their legacy, The Rim Golf Club is their final and ultimate collaboration! Mr. Weiskopf states "The twelve finest consecutive holes Jay and I ever designed are here at The Rim Club starting with hole number 7."

Chaparral Pines

The Rim Golf Membership comes with full golfing privileges at our sister club, The Golf Club at Chaparral Pines. Located directly across Highway 260, Chaparral Pines’ private championship golf course is an 18-hole, par-72 masterpiece designed by former U.S.

Open and PGA Champion David Graham and noted Scottsdale-based architect Gary Panks. It was named one of Golf Digest’s “Top 10 New Private Golf Courses in the U.S.” when it opened in 1997 and consistently ranks among the magazine’s best.

Spreading over the Mogollon Rim country of northern Arizona, the golf course features a variety of challenging holes, beautifully manicured fairways and breath-taking views of the majestic landscape – all of which exceed any golfer’s expectations. In addition, an assortment of intrinsic man-made lakes, streams and washes add to the serenity of the course.

Designed as a special escape among the pristine forest, Chaparral Pines also features year-round play. This signature 18-hole golf course is built with respect for the land, with natural topography inspiring the layout of each hole. Existing landmarks such as natural granite rock outcroppings have been left untouched.
