Refuge Golf and Country Club

The Refuge Golf and Country Club in Lake Havasu City, AZ is a spectacular Arnold Palmer Signature design that is nestled against the dramatic desert mountains and expansive views of Lake Havasu, bordering the Lake Havasu National Wildlife Refuge and an hour from Laughlin making it a nice day trip. Located just 67 miles south of Laughlin’s Casino Row, this property is now a private club offering memberships. Situated on the banks of Lake Havasu, the environment provides a great atmosphere for outings and special golf events.


On the Refuge Golf and Country Club property is a beautiful clubhouse with pro shop, restaurant and lounge serving lunch seven days and week and dinners seasonally. The outdoor terrace is also available for dining, and features gorgeous views of the course and Lake Havasu. The event pavilion can host large and small parties, banquets, outings, weddings and special events, with the capacity to serve upwards of 300 guests. There is an amazing clubhouse restaurant that is complimented by the Onyx Lounge. There is a large practice green plus spacious grass range with target areas. Like the golf course itself, this facility is exquisitely maintained. From tee to green, The Refuge is one of the finest conditioned and landscaped layouts anywhere – including the best country clubs and courses in Palm Springs and Las Vegas. Desert wildflowers adorn the property, and are in full bloom for most of the winter. You will likely see rabbits, quail, spotted hawks, and road runners.

The opening hole is an a sight to behold – a long par four with views of Lake Havasu from an elevated tee. The entire front nine winds its way along the Lake and the adjoining Colorado River with lovely vistas from behind the greens. Holes 3 and 6 are par threes and are both visually stunning and they are challenging. From holes 4, 5 and 8 there are fantastic views Lake Havasu, so bringing a camera along is a must.

Course Design

The Refuge Golf course is a masterfully designed Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Club, woven through the magnificent surroundings of the Lake Havasu National Wildlife Refuge with dramatic views of Lake Havasu and dramatic the mountains. The course features numerous elevation changes, terrific water features, and a mix of natural dunes. The Refuge was originally designed featuring eighteen challenging holes of championship golf and a clubhouse with restaurant and bar. Since then, the management has redesigned the course to make it enjoyable for all skill levels, and turned the dining room into a sports bar and grille so visitors and members can relax and watch a game on large flat-screen TVs after playing 18 holes. There is a published CODE OF CONDUCT: No denim. No cargo shorts. No tee shirts, and no cell phones in clubhouse. How refreshing!

Golf course reviews, ratings and comments

“This is a first class private golf course. I took advantage of the “member for a day” program and played a round this morning. It is a true country club experience.” —Ken

“Great food and great people. Great course that is under new ownership and making great changes to course.” —Jared

“Pleasantly surprised. The course was in great shape and was very fun to play. It was a little windy in the morning but it didn’t seem to effect my play much. Great views of Lake Havasu on several holes. Tee times were 12 minutes apart so pace of play was awesome. The greens fee came with a $10 voucher for food and drink at the clubhouse. If you have time after the round you can take advantage of their pool and gym for the day. Would definitely play here again.” —Bill
