The Winfield community has made some amazing updates to their amenities this year that they plan to unveil this month. Winfield’s Executive Director, Lori Nelson, explained that they are finishing a small expansion and complete remodel of their fitness facility, including $100,000 worth of new fitness equipment and a new area dedicated to free weights. The Winfield community clubhouse is over 13,000 square feet and has an indoor spa, locker rooms, meeting rooms and a cafe. Outside is a heated pool and six miles of hiking trails that even traverse up the community’s most amazing amenity – a 75-acre boulder strewn mountain preserve.

Also included in the Winfield update are two new pickleball courts! These are not courts that have been retrofitted from existing amenities. These courts are brand new additions to the club, which already hosts eight lighted tennis courts including two sub irrigated Har-Tru clay courts. In an area woefully short of pickleball courts, this is a great addition. While Winfield does allow outside memberships for tennis, the pickleball facilities will be for residents only.

I was on staff with Pulte homes at the time Winfield was built and felt our adding the clay courts was an important differentiator for the community. The new clubhouse updates and the addition of the pickleball courts will definitely put Winfield in the mix as one of the best values in the Scottsdale North lifestyle community.
