Arizona's Mirabel Golf Club in top 100 of Golfweek's 2014 list

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Mirabel, Scottsdale's premier private golf club, has been ranked in the top 100 of Golfweek's 2014 Best Residential Courses. Courses are rated based on several factors including: ease and intimacy of routing, variety and memorability of each hole, overall landscaping and the basic quality and condition of the course. Mirabel is one of the most honored courses in the Valley and has been regularly recognized by Golf Magazine, Golf Digest and The Arizona Republic as one of the best private golf clubs in the United States.

Ranked 76th Best Residential Course by Golfweek, Mirabel's Tom Fazio designed 7,147 yard course plays to a par-71 and is suitable for golfers of all levels. The thoughtful design includes generous landing areas, pristine greens and forward tee positions that create an experience both tough and enjoyable.

"There are more than 15,000 golf courses in the United States and it is truly an honor to be recognized in Golfweek's top 100," said David Engram, Head Golf Pro at Mirabel. "We are proud of the services and amenities we offer, and this award helps show the entire golf community the type of high-caliber, luxury golf club experience that our members already enjoy."

Mirabel has been ranked the Best Private Golf Club in Arizona by AZ Golf Insider Magazine and is honored as one of BoardRoom Magazine's Distinguished Clubs. Additionally, Mirabel was recently among a few selected businesses to be recognized by The Scottsdale Award Program for providing exceptional services to its customers and the community.

The private, gated community which surrounds the golf club consists of 348 homesites offering both luxury homes and custom lots. Mirabel is governed by a Community Association whose Board of Directors is made up of homeowners. Under its direction, Mirabel has remained financially secure and is currently debt free with no foreclosure properties or distressed homes in the community.

In addition to top notch golf, the club boasts championship-caliber Har-Tru clay tennis courts and comprehensive tennis courses, multi-sport fitness facilities and extensive health and wellness programs.
