PXG House isn’t a typical clubhouse. Far from it, actually. Instead, it’s a contemporary gathering place where members come together for post-round cocktails while soaking in a stunning Sonoran Desert sunset or simply to enjoy an exquisite meal.
“We wanted a building that would capture the majestic views surrounding The Other Course and essentially be a modern interpretation of the existing National Clubhouse on the property,” says Renee Parsons.
The Scottsdale firm of Swaback Architects + Planners alongside Kris Clay Studios executed that vision, creating a 27,287-square-foot structure featuring an array of traditional and regional materials, including genuine adobe mud bricks and mortar washed walls commonly found in historic buildings throughout the Southwest. Subtle visual nods to copper (the metal played a critical role in Arizona’s mining history) and bronze, which was used in combination with wood timber structures to showcase a strong sense of style and craftsmanship, provide a rustic modern look.
When the massive front doors are open, a line of sight stretches from the fire feature in front of the PXG House through the length of the building and its large spans of glass to the 18th hole of The Other Course. Ample terraces with extensive roof cover and multiple fire pits offer an ideal blending of indoor and outdoor space. And then there are those incredible views found on The Perch, an open-air space located on the roof.
This new clubhouse instantly captured the very essence of Scottsdale National Golf Club. “The members have made PXG House their own space and given it a rhythm that happens organically,” says Mrs. Parsons. “You can’t force it. We created the space, but they set the tone for it and define how it’s being used.”
