Viewpoint RV & Golf Resort, nestled in the shadow of the Superstition Mountains in Mesa, Ariz., is the place for RVers and golfers looking for some excitement or to kick back and unwind.
Play a round at one of the golf courses, read a book in the library, attend a silver-smithing class or sit down for a dinner show. Viewpoint RV & Golf Resort is the place for RVers and golfers looking for some excitement or to kick back and unwind.
“It’s a resort that has something to do all day, everyday,” says Steve Frandsen, Viewpoint general manager. “Basically, if you want a busy day, you can have one. But, if you don’t want a lot to do, you can just relax. If I had a choice, I’d be out there golfing.”
With over 100 clubs, including woodworking, crocheting, computers, tennis, horseshoes, to name a few, there’s a little something for just about every type of RV-golfer. The resort is geared toward those 55 and older.
Viewpoint offers over 1,800 spaces for the mobile, short-term RVer or for those desiring a destination for the entire winter season. Space fees include: free local telephone service, free cable TV, water, sewer, refuse removal and a private mailbox with mail handling service. Monthly and annual fees do not include electricity. Rates exclude applicable sales tax.
With over 75,000 square feet of recreation space, ViewPoint has something for everyone. Facilities include Hi-Def TV's with all your favorite sports events, a computer training classroom, exercise and physiotherapy rooms, Grand Ballroom, garden room, event center, library, living room and class rooms for arts and crafts, not to mention 10 tennis courts, 27 holes of golf and shuffle board. Softball enthusiasts will delight in ViewPoint's professionally groomed field, complete with electronic scoreboard.
If card playing is your idea of a relaxing activity ViewPoint's card room, located in the NorthPoint Recreation Center will impress you with it's beautiful city light views. If billards is more your style you'll find a friendly game of that as well.
Saturday nights are an event at Viewpoint, with functions held year-round in the newly remodeled grand ballroom. ViewPoint’s grand ballroom can accommodate hundreds of active senior adults dancing to a live band.
Sunday church services are also available. Monday’s feature bingo and free music “jam” sessions all day, Tuesday dinner shows are scheduled, and on every other Thursday from January to March attend a concert, sing at Friday karaoke, or have breakfast on Saturday morning.
The two all-grass courses are challenging for the experienced golfer, but are user-friendly enough for those who are just starting out. Gently rolling fairways are landscaped with pines and poplars, cool streams and lakes and perfectly manicured greens. Viewpoint features both an 18-hole championship and a 9-hole executive course. The par 71 championship course provides a fair test without the extremes of desert target golf. Golf courses are always open to the public.
Viewpoint’s busy season usually runs from January to March, when the weather is nice in Arizona, but some visitors get a jump-start as early as October. And it’s no wonder—Viewpoint was rated the Park of the Year for 2004 in the mega-park category by the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC), based in Falls Church, Va.
