Master-Planned Community Spotlight on Robson Ranch
AZ Big Media revealed that Robson Ranch recently celebrated its 1,000th home closing. The Robson Resort Communities active adult community in Eloy has turned into yet another success story and a viable place for retirees to call home.
While it’s located in the desertscape, its connection to major cities made Eloy a prime spot for Robson Ranch. With both Phoenix and Tucson an hour away, it makes commuting or traveling fairly easy along the I-10. It’s also the perfect spot between the two, if you want to take a weekend trip to San Diego.
Lifelong learners will appreciate the educational resources close to Robson Ranch. Central Arizona College in Coolidge is about 15 miles away, while Chandler/Gilbert Community College is only 40 miles away. Arizona State University and the University of Arizona are within an hour, perfect if the grandkids are attending either.
Robson Ranch residents have plenty of access to nearby healthcare choices in Casa Grande with Casa Grande Regional Medical Center and The Casa Grande Community Based Outpatient Clinic. Also, major organizations like The Mayo Clinic and Barrow Neurological Institute can be found in Phoenix.
Though there are plenty of activity options between the two Arizona cities, residents don’t really have to leave the comforts of the community. There’s a reason the Robson Ranch motto is “wake up with nothing to do or everything to do.” Residents can enjoy the community golf course that features 18 holes of championship golf. Or they can use the four tennis courts, softball field, or indoor lap pool. In 2017, The National Association of Homebuilders awarded the community the Best 55+ Outdoor Lifestyle Amenity distinction for its 16-court Pickleball Complex.
Those looking to exercise their mind and body will appreciate in the state-of-the-art fitness center with the opportunity to take part in dance, yoga, and aerobics.

The on-site restaurant, Ranch House Grill and Lounge, inside the Ranch House Community Center, provides a broad menu, billiards for entertainment, and a large ballroom complete with a full-size stage for evening performances. Most mornings you’ll find the pathways and dog park full of residents taking advantage of the scenery.
Sixteen floorplans all come with two-bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a two-car garage. A den option on some plans can be used as a potential third bedroom. Many of the homes also enjoy views of the golf course and mountains. Design consultants at the community help buyers select the details of their home from cabinets and flooring to flex spaces.
Each residence is built with standards reflecting the importance of energy-efficiency. Windows with low E-glass, low HERS scores, and low VOC paint and carpet are several of the features used to maintain 100 percent Energy Star-certified home status.
Prices for available homes range from the high $100s to the high $300s. The newest home design Madera runs 1,884 square-feet, and comes with two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and an optional golf cart garage. Prices start at $249,900.
Abutting the town of Marana and Casa Grande,most of the city is relatively flat thanks to large expanses of desert combined with ranching and farming properties scattered throughout. Despite increased interest and development, the population remains under 20,000.
Fifteen miles north of Eloy, the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument provides a glimpse at the region’s Hohokam roots. This ancient Sonoran Desert People's farming community attracts many visitors even now.
It isn’t all laid-back around here, however. Eloy also boasts the largest skydiving drop zone in the world, Skydive Arizona.
