Encanto Men's Club

Encanto Men's Club (EMC) events date back to the late 1930s, soon after the state's third oldest course opened to the public. Course Architect, William P. Bell designed an instant classic in what has become a vintage, player friendly municipal course representing the style of links from that rich era in golf history.

Chartered in 1955 as a member golf club of the USGA, The Encanto Men's Club has sponsored handicap flighted monthly tournaments for fifty-five years, providing local golfers in all age brackets challenging individual, two-man and four-man events on the lush Bermuda and palm tree lined fairways and multiple bunkered Bermuda greens.

EMC membership hovers between 175 and 200 players per year, with fees ranging between $45 -$75, depending upon affiliation. We host three Major members only Championships a year: the Club Match Play, Individual Stroke and the President's Cup. And every fall we host an Annual Banquet, a fun-filled night open to all members.

The Encanto Cup, a "Ryder Cup" type tournament held each year in early summer was founded by EMC member Cleve Lynch. The event challenges the skills of members from Papago, Cave Creek, Maryvale and Encanto, in a gross and net point Championship. Winning Club takes the cup home for the year. The event rotates annually so each club hosts at their home course once every four years. This coveted tradition holds strong even today, where club members take great pride in being selected to their club's team.

No doubt more difficult courses exist in Arizona today, few have the heritage, longevity and traditions that Encanto embodies. Simply put, our members are drawn together by the feeling of extended family conveyed, our easy natured camaraderie and one constant: each member plays out of a pure love for the game of golf.

Membership includes:

--USGA Handicap
--Arizona Golf Association Membership/Handicap

--Access to monthly events as described above
