North Arcadia is home to the luxury golf community of Grayhawk, which was developed beginning in 1996. Featuring mountain views and upscale amenities, the 1,615-acre master-planned community contains two distinct neighborhoods, The Retreat and The Park.

The neighborhoods share vast amounts of green space, trails, and recreation facilities. With a collection of 3,800 homes, the community maintains a welcoming feel with its social events, indoor/outdoor amenities, and neighbors.

Real Estate

Homes in the community include condos, villas, and townhomes, plus custom homes on larger estates. Residents enjoy the option to live in a gated or non-gated neighborhood for added safety and security. Home sizes varyfrom 798 to 8,017 square feet, and price tags currently ranging from $284,500 to $2,950,000 with some homes including basement options. The Pinnacle Peak views and various hiking trails make the location desirable for those homeowners looking for a community with a closeness to nature.


Two 18-hole golf courses, the Raptor and the Talon provide opportunities to enjoy time on the links for residents. The public courses offer everyone from beginners to pros a chance to experience a game of golf on the well-maintained greens. The Raptor course is a par-72 designed by Tom Fazio. Rolling hills and natural landscaping create a challenging, yet fun atmosphere that stretches 7,151 yards through the Sonoran Desert. The Talon was designed in 1981 as a joint project for David Graham and Gary Panks. This course spans 6,973 yards and offers views of the McDowell Mountains. Various PGA and other pro events have been hosted at the courses, each offering its own challenges and rewards. For those hoping to improve their game, The Grayhawk Learning Center gives all levels of players the chance to receive direction from experienced instructors. The locker rooms offer comfortable space to get ready for a game and wind down afterward, while the Golf Shop and Trading Company is sure to have the gear necessary for a day on the course and beyond. The Morning Joint, Quill Creek Café and Phil’s Grill are the onsite dining options.


The community has outdoor recreation for all interests including baseball and soccer fields, volleyball and tennis courts, and basketball courts. Families with younger children frequent the playgrounds and grassy areas throughout the community and residents are welcome to enjoy the picnic areas and ramadas. The neighborhoods also contain seven community swimming pools and seven spas spread throughout the two neighborhoods providing refreshing fitness and relaxation opportunities. Regular social events may include movie nights, concerts, and art classes.


With its nearby proximity to Loop 101, Grawhawk is close to all that the North Arcadia area has to offer. Dining, entertainment and shopping are a short drive away at Hayden Peak Crossing.
