The Robson Ranch Texas Wildhorse Golf Club was recognized in the “Best of Public Golf” in DFW Top Elite Course List by AVIDGOLFER Magazine.

Noted as a favorite course on the west side and acknowledging the quality of the greens, AVIDGOLFER Magazine added in part, “Although conditions here are always great, we were floored to see that they were even better for this year. It was one of the most impressive displays by an agronomy team in 2020, especially given just how much play courses have seen during the pandemic. Kudos to the staff at Wildhorse for wowing us during the annual visit.”

The Wildhorse Golf Club features 27 holes of championship golf, which includes the additional North 9 holes added in 2019. The three 9-hole courses feature strategically placed bunkers, hazards and lush landscaping that creates a design that is enjoyable for novice as well as senior golfers. All courses of the Wildhorse Golf Club feature golf cart paths that meander through the beautiful fairways and provide picturesque scenery of the Denton and surrounding areas.

Located within the luxury 55+ resort community, Robson Ranch Texas, the Wildhorse Golf Club currently is open to the public.

The SaddleBrooke Ranch Women’s Golf Association (SBRWGA) invites women that enjoy playing 18 holes of golf to join a great group of women that make up our club. The goal of SBRWGA is to promote good fellowship, provide an opportunity to enjoy golf, enable our members to enjoy organized competition and social activities, and to be a member of the Arizona Women’s Golf Association (AWGA).

SBRWGA has experienced exponential growth since it began as an informal golf league in 2011 with 11 members. The Golf Association currently has over 100 members and looks forward to continuing to welcome new members.

The club plays on the SaddleBrooke Ranch championship golf course Tuesday mornings between 8 and 9 a.m. depending on the season. Play consists of a different game every week to keep things interesting, and usually once a month the game involves team play with each foursome. A $5 entry fee is paid by each member on each playday they participate in which then goes to the winning players in each flight. These winnings can then be used to purchase merchandise in the Pro Shop.

In addition to regular games on Tuesday League Day, there are numerous special events and tournaments each year, including President’s Cup, Club Championship, Solheim Cup, Member/Member, Member/Guest, and a Sadie Hawkins couples tournament, to name a few. We also participate in off-site golf events via the Arizona Women’s Golf Association, Southern District Women’s Golf Association, Kachina Dolls golf outings, and the Catalina Cup golf competition.

The SBRWGA has been very conscious and cautious of COVID-19 and has implemented several measures to keep all golfers safe. For example, each player may ride alone in their own golf cart, there are no shotgun starts, no cash payments are made to the Golf Shop, completed scorecards are deposited in a box after the 18th hole, there are no gatherings after golf, golfers are encouraged to wear masks before and after play, wash hands, refrain from indoor gatherings, and social distance as much as possible.

To help new members feel comfortable, a mentor program was established to assist each new member with getting started. For more information, visit www.SBRWGA.com.

The Quail Creek Critters Club is one of the oldest and largest chartered clubs in Quail Creek. Its beginnings date back to 2008, and since that time it has been actively involved in the community, advocating for all the pets and pet owners who reside in the community. It is in charge of managing the community dog park. The POA is in charge of maintaining the dog park.

In recent years, the Critters Club has grown dramatically. In 2019, it experienced its largest enrollment of members to date. There were close to 100 members. Yet, in 2020 the membership again broke all existing records. By the end of 2020, there were close to 200 members involved in the club. This is a growth of 100% in just one year! This means that there were more than 350 residents and 240 pets involved with the club.

The Critters Club is off to a great start in 2021. In January alone, the membership grew significantly over the 2020 numbers for January. At the current time, there are close to 135 members compared to only 30 members at the same time last year. Another interesting fact is that the number of member donations to the club has grown tenfold in just the first month of the new year. We are looking ahead to a great year for our resident members and their pets, who will be a part of this vibrant and service-oriented club.

The Quail Creek Critters Club (in a normal year) provides an active educational and social program for its members. In addition, the club assists with pet locating and finding within the community. Our website provides pet related information to any resident who has questions or concerns about the pets in our community. Speaking of our Quail Creek community, it provides many volunteers for The Animal League of Green Valley (TALGV) and many of those same volunteers are members of the Critters Club. Ultimately, our members provide a voice for the many pets that have no voice within our community. We care and we show it. Our members are advocates who support all of the pets and pet owners in the community.

Since 2020, the club has been led by a strong group of resident volunteers. The club is managed by a group of caring residents who form the Critters Club leadership team. The team is led by Paul Riggins, president. In addition, supporting and advising the president are residents Al Olbeter, Robert Marshall, Kay Allen, Bill Oldread, Karen Morey, Jerry Pinson, and Gordy Johnson. In addition, there are over 35 Critters Club members who volunteer to assist the club with the many events they hold or help sponsor during the course of the year.

The Quail Creek Critters Club is definitely a club on the move, and its voice is a loud and resounding bark!

In October of 2020, the HOA Board of Directors presented a proposal to the community to remodel Toscana’s Restaurant at PebbleCreek. The project was officially approved in December 2020. The purpose of the remodel/expansion at Toscana’s is not only to offer more capacity, better use of space, and more services, but also to update the décor. The project will unite the existing dining spaces already in place and will create a larger, more open, and energized space for homeowners, their guests, and visitors.

The designer of the project has described the plans as follows: The bar is the central focus of the project uniting the interior bar and dining with the patios to the north and the west. The snack bar to the east will serve the golfers and be the place of sign-in for activities and scoreboard. The exhibition pizza kitchen will help alleviate some pressure on the kitchen and serve to visually stimulate and activate the main dining room and the west patio. The entry will be identified with a large decorative door. The entry space will serve not just as a greeting area, but also as a place to receive take-out orders with a fun market featuring pastries and desserts to go, wine by the bottle, and specialties snacks. The design aesthetic for the remodel and expansion is a blend of modern and traditional design elements inspired by Rome. The selection of materials, finishes, and details are a mix of traditional and modern patterns and materials. The color palette is warm with warm neutrals to tie with existing colors and material of the original space, which will be part of the design. The color palette is muted and soft with accent punches of color. The overall feel will be open, spacious, and casual with both modern and traditional design elements from Italian design. The idea is to create a space that is timeless; that pays respect to traditional materials and patterns, but also has a modern and contemporary twist.

With the continuing growth of PebbleCreek, a remodeled, larger restaurant that can accommodate more guests, offer more services, and keep up with existing community needs is most definitely going to make a positive impression. Expanded restaurant capacity will allow us to serve food to up to 365 people at any given time, a 41% increase over the current 258. In addition to these changes to the guest side of the restaurant, design changes will also occur in the kitchen and service areas as well. The kitchen will be reconfigured to increase efficiency and support serving the additional guests. This is just some of the information currently available about this project.

At the time of publication, it is anticipated that the project will begin in May 2021.

The Robson Ranch Arizona RC Club has been making several improvements to the Robson Ranch RC Park. Winter residents were pleased to see the work completed during the summer.

Park signs were designed by local artist Carol Engler, and have been put up to direct people to the park.

In addition, a large bulletin board has been built at the entrance to the RC car racing tracks with a glass display case containing the pictures of winning drivers during the last two racing seasons.

New pilot stations were added to the RC plane flying area and fencing has been constructed around the racing area. A hand washing station in the racing area was added to comply with COVID regulations. New benches are now in the picnic area, adjacent to the racetracks for spectators, near the flying area, and under the shaded spectator area.

Most of the work was done by the talented facility director, Ken Fosnight.

Flying events are held Saturday mornings and car racing is every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 10 a.m. Robson Ranch Arizona residents are welcome to attend. The park is located just north of the community and can be reached in minutes by autos and golf carts; just follow Robson Blvd. through the red fence near the Villas and follow the signs from there. Any residents of Robson Ranch interested in flying RC planes or racing RC cars can go to the club website at www.sites.google.com/view/rrrc and download a club registration form.

The Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association has awarded the 2020 Roy Barnes Volunteer of the Year Award to Jerry Colbert.

Jerry is well deserving of this award. He has served on the Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association board for several years in various capacities. He has been membership chair on two occasions, has been on the invitational committee for many years, and has served as an ex officio parliamentarian for the board. Jerry has also handled the board’s election process for several years and set up the Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association annual meeting slideshow that has informed members of the past year’s activities, and has been a liaison with the Arizona Golf Association. Currently, he serves as Quail Creek Men’s Golf Associations webmaster, in charge of the association’s new website.

The best way to describe what Jerry has done for the golfing community at Quail Creek is to ask various Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association past presidents and board members for their comments. Tom Bruno, past president, describes Jerry as someone who “will take on virtually any task requested.” He also describes Jerry as someone who “is constantly looking for different ways to improve or advance the system we use to facilitate the club’s activities.” Tom says Jerry “gets along with everyone, is supportive, and promotes goodwill in the club.” Tim Philips, past president, described Jerry as “someone who can find the missing information from past years. He is one of the most important people we have in making the organization run smoothly.” Craig Parsons, another past president, mentioned that, “Jerry is the idea man for the board.” Jim Lynch, tournament director, says of Jerry, “Jerry provides invaluable insight and input into all our governing procedures.” Finally, Shel Zatkin, current president states, “I do not know anyone who works harder for the QCMGA members. I wish we had more like him.”

Jerry has put in countless hours helping the Quail Creek golfing community. He and his wonderful wife Laura have been involved in many activities here in Quail Creek. We are so lucky to have the Colbert’s living in this community. Jerry has been the digital voice/face of the Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association for over 10 years, and it is quite fitting that the 2020 Quail Creek Men’s Golf Association board has awarded Jerry the 2020 Volunteer of the Year Award.
