The Nordic Center has groomed trails along the Mountain Golf Course located on the Ranch in Cordillera. You can stop in the Nordic Pro Shop for the latest outdoor gear from North Face and Swix.

Club News

CORDILLERAConnection | January 2014

Club News Greetings Community Members, Â The Mountain course has turned into a winter wonderland! Our agronomy crew has been packing the trail and they have groomed the trails. Both the Nordic Center and Timber Hearth are open! It is with great pleasure that I announce The Club at Cordillera now offers a 20% discount to all Members on food, beverage, and merchandise in the golf shop.

Executive Chef, Matt Limbaugh, and Wine Director, Jason Baez, have been busy collaborating and developing the winter menu for Timber Hearth Restaurant. The two have worked together in the past and share the same passion for food and wine. Chef Limbaugh has some wonderful seasonal menu ideas and has been busy contacting purveyors with whom he already has established relationships to ensure only the finest products available will be served at Timber Hearth this winter. In addition to the a la carte menu, a tasting menu will be available. This will be a great way to be introduced to Chef Limbaugh’s culinary style and talents. Jason, who is familiar with these talents, is selecting the wines to pair with this menu and has purchased several things to add to the growing wine list at Timber Hearth. Save the date of Tuesday, 7 January, for The Prisoner Wine Company Dinner. Winemaker Jennifer Beloz will join us for this special event. All four wines produced by TPWC will be served, each with a different course. Chef Limbaugh has tasted the wines and is excited to unveil his pairing menu. We have started taking reservations for this very special and unique dinner, so make sure to reserve your spot today. Our weekly Member Wine Mixers at the Timber Hearth have resumed. Other Winter Wine Mixers that have been booked are Aberrant Cellars, Cathy Cohn from Synergy Fine Wines who will be joined by four amazing winemakers from Argentina, and Damon Ornowski from Vin Divino who is excited to return as well. We are very excited for all of you to experience this season at the Timber Hearth! Now that winter is here, I decided to feature a Troon Golf favorite, in the WARM part of the country. Over the next few weeks I will introduce our Arizona courses, starting with The Gallery. Set in the beautiful and unique Tortolita Mountains, The Gallery Golf Club is characterized by breathtaking vistas and the rich history of cattle ranching. The Gallery provides comfort and amenities in a relaxed southwestern atmosphere, perfect for quality time spent with family and friends. Two highly acclaimed courses offer the finest in desert golf. The picturesque North Course, designed by Tom Lehman and John Fought, features sweeping views of the high Sonoran desert landscape; while the South Course, which hosted the World Golf Championships - Accenture Match Play Championship in 2007 and 2008, features subtle elevation changes with views in every direction. The exceptionally maintained courses are set in a lush and natural desert environment, making the experience highly enjoyable for all skill levels. The Gallery Club is available for you to golf for a cart fee of $25. Please visit www.troongolf.com and contact me with any questions at 970/470-9415 or smorgan@troongolf.com.
