Hearth ‘61
On May 24, 1961, Paradise Valley became an officially incorporated town. Hearth ‘61 seeks to honor the town’s beginning by serving as a welcoming spot where people gather together for good food and good times. Enjoy seasonal fare from renowned Chef Charles Wiley, craft cocktails, local brews, and an award-winning wine selection.

The Short Course recently named this among the “best par-3 courses in America.” The fully rebuilt course, which dates to the original resort, features dramatic mountain views and eighteen par-3 holes, each with an interesting personality. Unlike a traditional course that takes five to six hours to play, this course can be played in just 2.5 hours. Rusty’s is the perfect spot to enjoy a bite and a beverage after teeing off.

The Citizens Club
The Citizens Club pays homage to the Citizens Committee for the Incorporation of The Town of Paradise Valley, which officially founded the town in 1961. It’s a place to gather, socialize and refocus your mental and physical health. Relax by one of two pools and bask in the sun and shadows of Camelback Mountain and Mummy Mountain. Watch the sunset while sipping innovative cocktails, or work on your wellness goals in the premier fitness facility, featuring yoga, Pilates, and even Guided Photography Hikes.
