Second Home & Retirement Trends
Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club is a premier private golf club AND a luxury, master-planned community. Our 930-acre, guard-gated community features custom homes, new builds and homesites set among 17 village-style neighborhoods. While it is not an age restricted community, we find many of our members and residents are retired and/or what we Arizonans loving call “Snow Birds,” who split their time between two homes – typically seeking sunshine during the winter months.
When looking at trends for the most sought-after retirement
homes or second home communities, we’ve found a few key amenities come up time
after time. The top-picks are similar to those touted by Builder
Magazine as the top amenities for master plan communities.
Retirement is no longer a time to simply break in the recliner and “watch your stories” all day. People in the 55+ age group are more and more dedicated to leading healthy, active lives and look for communities to support that lifestyle. At Superstition Mountain, members enjoy a wide variety of fitness and wellness offerings at the Sports Club. From state-of-the-art equipment to a variety of fitness classes – including yoga, core conditioning, golf fitness and more – members can stay active in a safe, supportive and comfortable environment. The club also boasts highly certified and educated personal trainers that can assist with workouts or meet with members individually to prepare a program to meet individual goals.
The club also boasts in-house spa services – because regular massage therapy should a key component to any luxury wellness routine – and healthy/fit menu items in the dining room.
One of the things that makes Arizona a prime retirement or second home location is the weather. We enjoy mild winters and, on average, 250 - 300 days of sunshine a year. If you are active outdoorsy, check out the miles of walking and hiking trails inside the gates of our beautiful community, book a tee time or join a Bocce league. If you are outdoorsy in the, I like to have cocktails on the porch, sort of way – head over to the clubhouse for dinner or happy hour and snag a spot on the patio. You can’t beat the incredible mountain views.
Checking the box for both outdoor living and wellness offerings are a variety of available sporting activities. In addition to 36 holes of spectacular Nicklaus Design golf, members also enjoy tennis and pickleball courts, a resort-style swimming pool, shaded wading pool and hot tub.
Many of the homes in our community also boast spacious backyards, covered patios and sliding glass walls to maximize indoor/outdoor living.
More than a house, your home should be your sanctuary. From new builds and elegant estates to custom home sites, our private golf club community has options to suite a variety of home shoppers. Check out this blog to learn more about finding your dream home at Superstition Mountain.
