It sports a relaxed atmosphere enhanced by the course's abundance of mature palm and salt cedar trees, plus some truly spectacular views of downtown Phoenix. William P. Bell designed both the traditional 18-hole championship course and the executive 9-hole course, which is just a block away. Encanto is ideally suited for the average golfer. Its level fairways are wide and it has a limited number of hazards. Amenities include driving range and practice green.
