Passion for the fruit of the vine swirled with quality, individuality and support for humanitarian causes around the globe. These wines are part of Gruppo La-Vis, one of the most prominent Italian companies in the wine business. Dating back to 1948, a group of Trentinian winemakers formed a cooperative and laid their foundation. Through in-depth study of the morphology of the land, it became possible to identify the best form of cultivation for each micro-zone, resulting in the most efficient relationship between the territory and production. Gruppo La-Vis is a group of wineries which share the same family values; each winery is rooted in its terroir and each has a deep-seated sense of individuality, which the group is committed to nurturing and communicating.

N

estled just outside of historic Florence, Arizona, a true hidden gem of the Southwest awaits you. Deriving its name from the nearby Poston Butte, named in honor Charles Poston, Poston Butte Golf Club serves as the centerpiece of the Pulte Group’s Anthem at Merrill Ranch. With five sets of tee boxes on each hole and no forced carries off the tees, save the signature par-3 17th featuring an island green, Poston Butte Golf Club provides an

enjoyable golf experience to all that play. Managed by Troon Golf, the recognized world-wide leader in luxury golf experiences, this Gary Panks design is always in excellent condition throughout the year. The first thought that many have regarding residential golf courses is the fear that the homes neighboring the course encroach upon the players making one feel claustrophobic and a bit apprehensive about sending a shot slightly off-line. Not so at Poston Butte.

BUTTE

The Pulte Group carefully plotted each home site around th the course to provide players enough brea breathing room to keep the ball in play whi while still offering wonderful views of the ccourse to homeowners. Add in the gene generous fairways that are much wider tha than average, and the player’s only concer concern left will be keeping their ball out of the forty-nine bunkers which have each be been strategically placed throughout tthe course. With just two water hazards oon the course, Poston Butte lends itself to helping you keep all of your golf balls. That is unless your determination gets the better of you on the 17th hole, prompting you to reach into every pocket in the bag searching for a ball that you can successfully land on the popular island green. Although it receives the most attention, the 169 yard 17th hole is not the only memorable par 3 at Poston Butte. The remaining three each have their own unique characteristics to keep your full attention. At 235 yards, the 4th hole can play like a short par 4 when the hole is cut all the way in the back of the green measuring 44 yards in depth. At 166 yards, the 7th hole is the shortest par 3 on the course but a deep bunker that runs along the entire right side and multi-tiered green with steep run-off areas make it just as treacherous at #17. At 193 yards, the 2011 ISSUE 3

008-011.Cover Story.indd 2

12th hole rivals with #17 for being the most picturesque par 3. Bunkers guard both sides of the green which sits atop a wall of stacked stones. A small collection of saguaro cactus also decorates the surrounding native areas of granite and other desert fauna making the hole a beautiful sight as sundown approaches. The remaining fourteen holes comprised of four par 5’s and ten par 4’s each provide great opportunity for blissful success, or dismal failures. The generosity that has been given to the players in the form of wide fairways is balanced out with green complexes that place a

premium on thoughtful approach shots. Contoured greens and a deep bunker make firing at the flag a risky proposition. On many occasions, players will have to use their creativity to find the safest way to the hole. Golfers with a deft short game and a steady putter will do

well ll at P Poston B Butte, while hil those h withih out will quickly understand the adage of “driving for show and putting for dough.” Located just outside of one of the oldest towns in Arizona, the golf course pays homage to its historic surroundings. The hill known as Poston Butte is located just east of the golf course and is visible from most every hole on the front nine. The hill was named after Charles Poston, a western pioneer, explorer, politician, journalist and expert in Indian affairs. Poston is regarded as the “Father of Arizona” because of his role in convincing Abraham Lincoln to create the territory of Arizona in 1863. Poston lived in Arizona and served as its first delegate to the US Congress. Upon discovering an Apache ruin atop a hill on the northwest side of Florence, he visualized the tower ruin as a temple where Indians once conducted worship ceremonies. In tribute, he dedicated his personal wealth in 1870 to constructing a pathway lead10

known as iing to a resurrected d fire temple l k “Poston’s Butte.” In 1925, nearly 23 years after his death, Poston was buried at the summit of his beloved “Poston’s Butte,” which still stands today. The fire temple serves as the logo for Poston Butte Golf Club and is used throughout. Smaller scale pyramids serve as the tee markers and monument signs for each hole in addition to the logoed apparel in the golf shop. A picture of Charles Poston and his story is also displayed in the golf shop for all to learn and enjoy the rich history of the surrounding land. As magnificent as the golf course is, so to is the master-planned community for which it is the highlight. Anthem at Merrill Ranch is the latest development for the Pulte Group and the first to offer the unique combination of the Sun City by Del Webb lifestyle and the Parkside by Pulte Homes lifestyles in one community. Living in the active-adult community of Sun City Anthem, you’ll be able

Proper Sequencing for Improved Consistency

By Mike Malaska – Nicklaus Academies’ World-Wide Director of Instruction

When it comes to improving your consistency from tee to green, one of the common faults with many players lies in the improper sequencing of their upper body with their arms. Without proper sequencing, or an easier way to think about it, the coordination of the movement of your arms and chest, you are left with nothing more than dumb luck that the face of the club will meet up with the ball at the absolute perfect time - and on the correct path. It is hard to bank on that combination for 18-holes of quality scoring.

and put it sideways on your sternum Make a regular take away, stopping the club at the top (notice how much greater your club head has travelled versus your chest) As you start your downswing, rotate your chest back to your starting position at impact, then continue rotating all the way through impact to your finish position.

Here is a drill I use to demonstrate and reinforce proper sequencing; 1. Set up the ball as you normally would 2. Remove your top hand from the grip

When your hands move out of synch with the rotation of your chest, the common result is a swing that is over the top, creating a weak shot to the right or a dead pull to the left (for a right handed player). Next time you find yourself spraying the ball all over the course, check your sequencing and work on getting your arms and body working as one.

The Legendary Wigwam 54 Holes of Golfing Splendor 014-016 Wigwam.indd 1

6/13/11 1:38:16 PM


The Wigwam is more than just a resort; it is a part of Arizona history. Situated in the West Valley, this iconic hotel first opened in 1929 and has become synonymous with Litchfield Park and is in many ways the cornerstone of that very community. Blending casual elegance with the charm of the Southwest, the Wigwam is a 440acre getaway destination that promises exceptional vacation and dining experiences with even more unforgettable golf outings. In fact, The Wigwam was recently the home of the 2011 U.S. Open Qualifier as well as the 2010 U.S. Amateur Qualifier. Located just north of I-10 off Litchfield Road, The Wigwam is just 20 minutes from downtown Phoenix. One of Arizona’s first and finest golf destinations, the 82-year-old Wigwam is the only resort in the Grand Canyon State to offer three exceptional 18-hole golf courses on property. Two of these, the Gold Course and The Patriot Course (formerly the Blue Course) were designed by famed architect Robert Trent Jones Sr., while the Wigwam’s Heritage Course (formerly the Red Course) was created by Arizona golf legend Robert “Red” Lawrence. Built in 1964, the Gold Course offers players perhaps the finest traditional layout in the Great Southwest. This lush, mature course stretches 7,100 yards from the back tees and challenges players with classic Jones features – namely small, elevated greens; narrow landing areas; elongated tees; and strategically placed bunkers and water hazards. Perhaps the best kept secret at The 2011 ISSUE 3

Wigwam is the quality and challenge of The Patriot which plays to 6,030 yards and closely follows the hole routing of The Wigwam’s original golf course. Also designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., the Patriot plays to 6,030 yards and roughly follows the hole routing of The Wigwam’s original golf course. Though shorter in length than the Gold Course, The Patriot which plays to 6,030 yards and nearly follows the hole routing of The Wigwam’s original golf course. Scoring well requires pinpoint accuracy and a strong understanding of golf strategy. At 6,861 yards, The Heritage Course is The Wigwam’s most modern design and offers players an open, “airy” layout that’s dotted with numerous lakes, rock-filled creeks and gigantic greens – all of which put a premium on good putting and chipping skills. Now known as simply Wigwam Golf, golf operations are headed by 30-year Arizona golf veteran Leo Simonetta. Simonetta and his staff are striving to deliver one of

The Premier Membership allows for all the golf club and resort have to offer. With unlimited access to the golf club and wide usage of the resort amenities, members and their family are able to utilize the property as their own playground year round. Plus, access to JDM sister property, the Arizona Biltmore’s two golf courses, is included. In 16

addition to the Premier Membership, a basic Golf Membership is also available. The Golf Membership includes nearly all the same privileges as the Premier Membership, with certain elements available on a “pay-as-yougo” basis. The benefit of golf membership is a reduced monthly dues structure and access to nearly all of the Wigwam Resort. Since acquiring the Wigwam in 2009, JDM Partners - headed by Jerry Colangelo has been working to improve and rebrand the resort’s golf operations. Since the acquisition, millions of dollars have been invested into improving golf operations and the three golf courses. Recently, a national golf school was planted at the golf club and that, along with various junior programs, make the Wigwam the ideal place for the entire family.

Golf the Divine 9 in the High Sierra The Divine 9 is a consortium of Carson City and Carson Valley’s Nevada’s top courses. This impressive collection includes Carson Valley, Dayton Valley, Eagle Valley East and West, Empire Ranch, Genoa Lakes Golf Club: The Lakes & The Resort, Silver Oak and Sunridge. In total, the courses offer 171 holes of golf across 70,000+ yards of the most scenic terrain in the region. Unique topography combined with a temperate climate, convenient accessibility and a favorable elevation have attracted some of golf’s leading course designers including Arnold Palmer, Johnny Miller, John Harbottle and Peter Jacobsen. Carson Valley winds through century-old cottonwoods and along the Carson River for a relaxing, yet challenging 6,023 yards.

Genoa Lakes Resort Course is a Johnny Miller/John Harbottle design and features a variety of elevation changes, visually tight fairways and numerous water hazards.

At Dayton Valley Golf Club, Arnold Palmer blended the natural beauty of high desert terrain with the challenges of linksstyle fairways. The large, undulating greens and plush fairways have welcomed Stage One PGA Tour Qualifying since 1995. Eagle Valley East invites golfers to tee it high and let it fly across its challenging 6,658 yards, numerous water hazards and large greens. Eagle Valley West is a links-style course that demands accuracy with an emphasis on target golf. Empire Ranch Golf Course has three ninehole courses, each with water and wetlands. It’s fairly open but rarely forgiving with five sets of tees catering to every level of golfer. The Lakes Course at Genoa Lakes is a John Harbottle and Peter Jacobsen design. It was 4th Best New Public Course in North America by “Golf Digest” in 1994, and 3rd Best Course in the Nevada in 1995.

Genoa Lakes, Lake Course—#17

Silver Oak Golf Course features impressive views of downtown Carson City. A wide open appearance can be deceiving as it winds through natural terrain, demanding accurate play over changing elevations. Sunridge Golf Course features tight fairways, challenging side-hill and downhill lies, serious elevation changes and large greens – many of the mounded variety.

Quarry Pines Golf Club

A

re you looking for a golf experience unlike any other? Does the unusual, yet beautiful, excite you? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you are ready for Quarry Pines Golf Club. The Pines represents an evolution in golf course design and the enjoyment of the game. Ten years ago, following a decision to abandon the sand and gravel quarry adjacent to the original golf course, the Town of Marana and the quarry/golf course owner agreed on a plan that would reclaim the quarry. By strategically relocating ten golf holes into the old quarry and reconfiguring eight of the existing holes, one of Tucson’s most popular golf courses was transformed into an even better product. Today the unique desert landscape is highlighted by dramatic elevation changes and the addition of thousands of trees. We invite you to come play Quarry Pines – Arizona’s only quarry golf course!

America s 50 Greatest Golf Retreats” by Golf America’ Digest In Index; “One of the Best Residential Golf Co Courses” and “One of the Top 100 Modern Courses” by Golfweek Magazine. Golfweek’s architecture editor Bradley Go S. Klein Klein, wrote the classic line, “Seven Canyons is the “IMAX” of golf.” The Club at Seven Canyons was built Th as a private golf club and a strong membership base still exists. However, like many private venues across the country, The Club at Seven Canyons recently opened its doors to the public. Located on approximately 200 acres surrounded by stunning red rocks and 100,000 acres of protected national forest land, The Club at Seven Canyons puts a premium on exceptional shot-making with small greens, narrow landing areas, classicstyle bunkering, mature trees, natural water features and constant changes in elevation. “You don’t have to use a driver to comfortably enjoy and play the course, as with any course that’s designed properly.

2011 ISSUE 3

044-045 Seven Canyon.indd 2

The game of golf is distance and direction and it’s controlling those two aspects,” said Weiskopf. The fourth hole, a 194 yard Par 3, concisely represents the experience that is The Club at Seven Canyons. Starting with the magnificent view from the tee box, you’ll then come across an 80-foot drop to a green which is protected by ironically, seven bunkers. With the constant wind, club selection is important and makes the hole interesting each and every time. In additional to select daily fee play, The Club at Seven Canyons also features 395 golf club memberships, lavishlyappointed fractional and whole ownership Villas and 32 private estate home sites. For a Stay and Play getaway, the golf course also offers packages with the numerous Sedona lodging establishments including Enchantment Resort.
