From the club website:

Nestled in Arizona’s spectacular Mogollon Rim country amid the largest stand of ponderosa pines in the nation, The Rim Golf Club is the ultimate golf experience in the south-western United States. Serene, picturesque, rustic and romantic, the club has instantly become one of the nation’s classic country club communities. With expansive panoramic vistas and exceptional golf course design, The Rim Golf Club truly enjoys the very best that Northern Arizona has to offer.

The course is the ultimate collaboration of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish. It can be played from 5,200 to 7,200 yards, with fairways woven through dramatic rock outcroppings and the largest stand of Ponderosa pines in the country. The natural elevations and native vegetation enhance the strategic challenge of the hazards, with water coming into play on six holes. Best of all, the course continually frames the breath-taking splendour of the Rim country with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and forest. Thanks to Payson's mild climate, avid golfers can enjoy year-round golf.

"Playability" is the hallmark of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish Golf Course designs and it is the number one priority of The Rim Golf Club! According to Weiskopf-Morrish principles, a great course must be enjoyable for players of every level. Each hole must create a risk and challenge, and every hole should reward a well-planned and executed golf shot. True to their legacy, The Rim Golf Club is their final and ultimate collaboration! Mr. Weiskopf states "The twelve finest consecutive holes Jay and I ever designed are here at The Rim Club starting with hole number 7."
