We all love golf, but no one loves it for five hours at a time. A sub-4 pace of play is part of our culture and it's what makes us different than any other club in the Valley. Play here. Play quick.
Four hours isn't our standard - it's actually a little slow for our preference. Our members frequently play in well under four hours, even on the busiest of days. It's part of the culture of our club, and it's what makes us different than any other club in the Valley.
Our membership runs the gamut, from young singles to well-heeled East Valley families. We thrive on this diversity, and we take pride in the fact that our Members are down-to-earth and easy-to-know. And we strictly enforce our "no jerks" policy.
At Mesa, you never have to bring your game. If you like a little action when you play, we've got that. If your preference is more social, we've got that as well. Like to play with other couples? We've got plenty of those, too. No matter how you prefer to play, you won't have to worry about organizing your golf anymore.
Joining a private club is an investment in your life, and there is a financial commitment involved. But Mesa Country Club is the most accessible of the classic clubs in town, and we think this affordability is fundamental to why we have thrived for more than seven decades. Installment plans are available to new Members, making the decision that much easier.
Located along the borders of Tempe and Scottsdale in northwest Mesa, Mesa Country Club is a traditional gem in every sense. A parkland layout set among towering eucalyptus and pines, the holes move left and right on this 6,900-yard, par-72 routing.
Unlike other clubs in the Valley, Mesa Country Club skirts up and down the plateau from which the city got its name, creating dramatic elevation changes throughout the twists and turns of the course. This topography – combined with a club campus which includes dining, lighted tennis & pickleball, a pool, and more – makes Mesa Country Club the home for discerning players from Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, and Phoenix.
Member owned and operated with access limited to Members and their guests, the MCC culture begins and ends with great golf. Equity, Young Executive, Seasonal, and Social Members are currently being accepted.

Created in 1948, Mesa Country Club was designed by legendary golf architect William “Billy” Bell. Bell is best known for his work in San Diego at the Torrey Pines South Course and La Jolla Country Club, however his portfolio extended into Arizona at both Mesa Country Club and the renowned original designs of Papago Park and Maryvale. In the 1970’s long-time head golf professional and respected architect Richard “Dick” Turner made numerous enhancements to the original Bell design at Mesa, including adding length to several holes and moving bunkers to be in play for longer hitters (Turner performed similar work at Pinnacle Peak Country Club in Scottsdale).
The 60+ year history of the Club is evidenced by the stunning mature trees that line every fairway. The course is reminiscent of other great designs of that era, with holes that move both left and right, par-3’s of a variety of lengths and orientations, and reachable risk/reward par-5’s that bring eagles and “others” into play. In addition to the towering trees which frame the parkland course, the most notable features are the elevation changes enabled by the plateau which divides the layout and the four “road holes” that cross the entryway to the Club. Some of the smallest greens in the state protect the course from low scores, particularly on holes like 8, 9, and 13 where the back-to-front slopes are substantial.
Beyond just independently interesting golf holes, Mesa Country Club is a compelling golf course – a story that unfolds with every new tee shot and approach. Furthermore, the course is what many others are not these days – eminently walkable. Short distances from green to tee help to keep a pace of four hours or better at all times, and the core design means you can play 3, 6, 9, 13, 15, or 18 holes depending on how much time you have.
