    From wherever you are to anywhere they are, eGift Cards are the perfect way to surprise family, friends, and those that matter most with a dinner out, a relaxing spa day, an afternoon out on the course or the opportunity to find that special treasure.

About The Course

Verde River Golf & Social Club is now available for daily-fee and Member play. Known formerly as “Tegavah,” Verde River Golf & Social Club was reborn in 2015 as the centerpiece of Shea Homes’ new Trilogy® at Verde River™ community.

The original layout was crafted by Ken Kavanaugh, and the course garnered rave reviews from Golf Digest, Golfweek, and others. In 2016, under the direction of Tom Lehman, the course underwent a number of strategic renovations and enhancements, a project that was rekindled in the summer of 2017 to ensure the course remains worthy of its numerous accolades.

The course is now fully reopened, and we warmly welcome daily fee guests, with access provided first to Members.
