It’s time for Overseeding, but Wait What is Overseeding?


Some of you may ask, what is overseeding and why do we overseed our golf course? Overseeding is to seed an existing stand with another type of plant. In this case our Bermuda grass golf course will be overseeded with Rye grass. Why? The reasons golf courses overseed their grass is to transition the course through different seasons and climate temperatures throughout the year so that the grass stays in great playing condition year around.

Bermuda grass thrives in weather warmer than eighty degrees or more at night as where Rye grass is meant for cooler weather. Our goal is to make sure our golf course is in the best shape for you and ready to play year around. This way you and your friends or family have the best playing experience possible. Hopefully you and your guests can appreciate the beautiful landscape of our course and the amazing views of the McDowell Mountains.

Our golf course is currently closed for overseeding through Sunday, October 9th. The golf course will re-open the on Monday, October 10th. We look forward to seeing you on our freshly overseeded emerald green course when we re-open for play!

In the mean-time our restaurant, the Mesquite Grille will be open at 3:00 p.m. (Monday – Thursday) for happy hour and dinner, and (Friday – Sunday) from 11:00 a.m. for you to enjoy your favorite sporting events and adult beverages.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 480.502.8200.

McDowell Mountain Golf Club Welcomes Michael Stidham



Please join us in welcoming our new Food and Beverage Manager, Michael Stidham, to our McDowell Mountain Golf Club’s very own Mesquite Grille.

Michael is an Arizona native who brings over ten years of restaurant management experience to Mesquite Grill. He attended Western New Mexico University on a basketball scholarship and graduated with a desire to pursue a career in restaurant management. This decision was a great one as it led him back to his beloved home of Arizona.

Michael’s love, passion, and commitment to managing a perfect dining establishment is exactly what we were looking for here at McDowell’s Mesquite Grille. He has an incredible understanding of what makes a successful restaurant and we are confident that this knowledge, paired with his drive, will create a memorable dining experience for your friends and family.

Since Michael has roots in Arizona as well as family located here in the valley of the sun, he agrees with us that family is everything. His hope for Mesquite Grille is to transform the restaurant into a place where friends, family, and members of the community can get together and enjoy great company. Michael is also looking forward to working on his golf game here at McDowell Mountain Golf Club—once the weather cools down, of course! While not currently a golfer, he definitely has the athletic ability to learn the sport that we all know and love.

So, the next time you’re playing golf or looking for a delicious meal to enjoy with friends and family, please visit us at Mesquite Grille. Say hello to Michael and enjoy the family fun spot he’s created for everyone!

How to prevent a SLICE

golf grip

A slice can be very frustrating in a game of golf. One tip to fix this is to straighten out the club. When you hit the ball with an open clubface a slice will occur. To prevent this make sure your grip is correct. Hold your club with an interlocking grip then look to see where your thumbs are pointing. They should be pointing down in a straight line towards the club head. If you line your thumbs up and your stance this will improve your swing.
