Entering the beautiful Persimmon Club from the elegant fireplace and architecture of the Persimmon Bar & Grille to the state of the art spa and equipment at the health and fitness center, it's pretty clear that no expense was spared.
No. 2 is the most beautiful hole on the course. Here the cacti and rosy-hued brush that line most of the course come together with rough stone mounding, cultivated flowers, fountains and waterfalls to create a spectacular backdrop for a fine 155 yard par three. Most of the water on the course is found behind No. 2, and isn't much of a danger to tee shots. It's sure nice to look at, though.
Another signature at Anthem is a double green shared by its two par-4 finishing holes. No. 9 winds down a hill and over a substantial arroyo to the wide yet shallow lower half of the green. No. 18 also heads down the hill, but comes at the green perpendicularly to the ninth, making the green narrow and very deep for approach shots.
