O.B. Sports tapped for Vista Verde


Changes are on the horizon at Vista Verde, an 825-acre golf community in Rio Verde, Arizona.

Vista Verde’s new owner, an LLC with ties to TerraWest Communities, plans to change the community’s name, add an “amenity center,” upgrade its 18-hole, Ken Kavanaugh-designed golf course and bring in OB Sports to oversee the golf operation. Mike Jesberger, the principal of TerraWest, told the Fountain Hills Times that OB Sports will assume management of the facility “in the near future.”

Vista Verde was built in the mid 2000s to complement a pair of nearby communities, Rio Verde and Tonto Verde, both of which have 36-hole golf complexes. Vista Verde was also supposed to get a second 18, but TerraWest has declined to pursue the opportunity.

TerraWest bought Vista Verde from a trust that includes David Ritchie, the community’s original developer, reportedly for $45 million.
