Phil Mickelson has, according to reports in The Arizona Republic, bought his eighth golf club in Arizona. He's clubbed in with his brother Tim Mickelson, his agent Steve Loy, and Arizona Valley developer Spike Lawrence to bag the 27-hole Ocotillo Golf Club in Chandler, Arizona.
“When I heard Ocotillo’s owners were ready to sell, I went straight to Phil and Steve,” Lawrence told The Republic.
No details as to the price are available as yet as the deal hasn't officially closed.
“It’s a great course, and it will be an honor to own it,” said Loy.
Phil came up with a neat scheme called Mickelson Private Club in which members get to play any one of five courses in the area. It's pretty exclusive stuff, however, with membership limited to just 50 people who get to play as many as 200 rounds per year at top notch venues.
These are the clubs:
McDowell Mountain Golf Club in Scottsdale
The Palm Valley Golf Club in Goodyear
The Golf Club at Chaparral Pines in Payson
The Rim Golf Club in Payson
The Stone Canyon Club in Oro Valley
What you get in the Mickelson Private Club:
200 member certificates good for rounds of golf at any Mickelson Private Golf Corporate Membership property
Transferable to guests
Club membership limited at 50
Day use of all club amenities ($25 daily fee for non-golf amenities)
