The Story

Community, Camaraderie, and Enjoyment have been the pillars to success for the life of the Club!

Westbrook Village Golf Club (WBVGC) has had a story of community and support since its beginning in 1994. Both the courses were originally built by development company, Universal Development and Construction (UDC), with the Lakes course opening in 1983 and the Vistas in 1990. As the final homes were being built by UDC, they began to look for companies to purchase and operate the courses individually. In September of 1994, UDC had accepted an offer for purchase of the Lakes course, provided the homeowners did not purchase the course. This is when a group of astute members and homeowners stepped in and requested to have a presentation for purchase of both the Lakes and Vistas courses by the members of the club. At first, UDC was reluctant to notion, but as the members and homeowners put forth their proposal and business plan. After review an acquisition price and its guidelines was set on October 27th, 1994. The group of members now had the task of procuring a set membership fee from 1000 members by December 15th. In true Westbrook fashion the committee had the 1000th membership sold on November 18th, merely days after the goal was set! Final papers were signed on November 23rd and the Westbrook Village Golf Club began operation on Thanksgiving Day, November 24th, 1994.

Community and camaraderie are two things that stand out with Westbrook Village. Many of the original purchasing members are still members today, including Les Wilson, board president during the acquisition and WBVGC member #0001. In his own words, “When the pressures became greatest and volunteers were needed, literally 100 or more residents responded. Thousands of hours were given to make this effort a success. It would be improper to single out any individual as so many gave their time and efforts. The golf course purchase became a group and community effort.”

    As we have been often asked; ‘What has brought you young folks to Westbrook Village Golf Club?’ It didn’t take us long to respond. In first driving along Union Hills Road and having an opportunity at first glance to see the lovely manicured golf course. We then proceeded to tour the residential area. The cleanliness, friendliness and strong family values spoke loud and clear to both of us. It was a combination of safety and convenience with all the amenities one would ever wish for. All offered in the confines of a highly respected Golf Community! We have been welcomed by all of the Westbrook Golf and Country Clubs staff and their membership! They are accepting of all levels of golf. They instill fun, building relationships and making memories that truly last a lifetime. So to anybody that is considering the optimum privileges of living in the Peoria area and playing the “Greatest Sport”, look no further than the Westbrook Village Golf Club.

    We researched and visited many different golf communities in the Phoenix area for our retirement home. We were determined to find a golf course community where we could play unlimited golf for a good value and a club that was financially stable with board members that were committed to member value. We were impressed with the two championship golf courses, the well maintained facilities and the economy of the golf at Westbrook Village Golf Club. The Location of our home was very important to us. Here at Westbrook Village we are in close proximity to the airport, major shopping centers, sporting events, concerts, a variety of restaurants, Scottsdale and Downtown Phoenix. It was a perfect fit for us! Since we purchased our home, ten homes have been purchased in Westbrook Village by family and friends all of which have enjoyed the golf. We tell everyone Westbrook Village Golf Club is the best value and best kept secret in the Northwest Valley! Watch out for more Wyomingites! We all love it here, the weather is perfect!

    Our dream of retiring early led us to visit several golf course communities in the “Valley of the Sun”. Upon arrival at Westbrook Village Golf Community we found 2 pristine desert golf courses quietly nestled within an immaculate community of 3900 homes. The golf staff and members seemed so warm and friendly making us feel welcome and at home. Amenities beyond golf include two all inclusive recreational centers with various activities for everyone. The location of Westbrook Village provides us the complete “Southwest Lifestyle” as we hike several mountains nearby and enjoy the endless restaurants and shopping only 5 minutes outside our resort community. If your dreams are like ours, to retire early and “play the back nine of life”, visit this active resort- style golf community. At Westbrook Village Golf Club members become friends and the experience is unforgettable.
