The Duke Golf Club, a 7,011-yard, David Druzisky-designed golf course located in Maricopa joins the other two clubs in the Ahwatukee Golf Properties portfolio, Ahwatukee Country Club and Ahwatukee Lakes. 

“We are pleased to add The Duke Golf Club to our portfolio of courses in this scenic corner of the Valley of the Sun,” stated Terry Duggan, President of Ahwatukee Golf Properties. “The Duke is an exceptional and very complementary addition to our other two facilities. We are excited to offer our members of Ahwatukee Country Club and Duke Saddle Club Members reciprocal benefits at all three of our venues. We are also pleased to offer Duke Gold Card holders with preferred rates at Ahwatukee Country Club and Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Club”.

Duggan also noted that, “The acquisition of The Duke uniquely positions AGP to also now offer area golfers three very distinct venue options (a 6,000 -7,000 yard + links-like/desert course, a 5,800 – 6,800 yard parkland tree-lined tree course, and a one of Arizona’s finest Executive courses), there by allowing us through the creation of new programs, to provide our customers with both playability and value choices not available from any other area competitor.”

Ahwatukee Golf Properties plans on maintaining the high operating standards and programs implemented by the prior ownership group. “We look forward to continuing to operate The Duke at the highest level and maintaining and/ or expanding upon existing rate offerings and playing programs for the loyal golfing members and guests of our Ahwatukee properties and now at The Duke,” stated Terry Duggan, President of the clubs under the umbrella of Ahwatukee Golf Properties.

Duggan went on to say, “We will continue to provide a high conditioned course, well appointed clubhouse and full service restaurant operation at the Silver Spur Grill. AGP has retained on-going support from OB Sports in the form of an affiliate marketing partnership, in order to ensure The Duke’s Gold Cardholders maintain the OB Sports travel benefits afforded to them at other popular area clubs. Our simple and singular goal is to provide our golfers with the best possible golfing experience through excellent course conditioning, value pricing, and superior customer service.”

Ahwatukee Golf Properties plans to quickly unveil some new playing programs at all three properties including, the addition of weekly league play and tournaments, junior clinics, reduced twilight rates and a “3 Club Summer Card” program that will allow virtually unlimited summer golf for only a cat fee at our three properties.
