Welcome to Guest Weekend at Toscana!

Warren W. Smith
Vice President of Sales

We are delighted that you will be attending our Guest Weekend at Toscana! We hope you enjoy all of the activities that are planned for the weekend including golf and spa treatments. Stop by the Sports Club on Friday from 2:30 - 4:30 pm to test drive the latest Porsches at the Desert European Ride & Drive. Get ready for a fun evening at our Glow Night Festa party where we will have great food, music and dancing! I encourage you also to drop by the Show Homes at any time during your visit. We will have a special open house at the Sales Center all day on Sunday, April 12 starting at 10:00 am.

The sales success at Toscana continues with 17 sales in 2015! Those 17 sales include nine resale homes (eight listed by the Toscana Sales Center) and eight new homes.

The Design Center and Construction team are working hard with 20 homes under construction and several more starting in the next few months. It is exciting to see the continued growth of the community with homes starting on the new homesites on Via Pisa. With each new day, the final holes of golf are taking shape and showcasing spectacular golf, views and scenery! Check out this video below for an insider's view of the last Jack Nicklaus site visit in December 2014.


We have been busy planning the remaining Club facilities and are excited to share our plans with you. The new facilities outlined in yellow will include:

  • Casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining, lounge, display kitchen, mult-purpose room and coffee/juice bar
  • Pool, kiddie pool and trellis
  • Two additional tennis courts
  • Sports Club pavilion for group exercise classes
  • Future banquet facility
  • Golf teaching facility (not shown on plan)

These new facilities will complement the already completed facilities including Il Forno and Wine Cellar, Golf Shop, Ladies' and Men's Locker Rooms, Spa Bella Vita, Sports and Tennis Club and the 36 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf.

Please click here for the attached letter and exhibits that explain the new plan, timing and background. After a series of 20 Focus Groups with Members and the Town Hall Meeting, we have received overwhelming support from the Members. We have just sent out a similar package to the Members along with a ballot and anticipate that the new plan will be approved.
