The University Club of Phoenix was founded and incorporated by Chet Goldberg, Jr. in 1965. The club opened its doors in newly renovated quarters at the Westward Ho Hotel in September of 1966. It remained there until the summer of 1970, when the present facility was purchased.
Nineteen members provided the capital to purchase the facility. We proudly salute their foresight. Those members were: Art Allsworth, Robert Bluemle, Doug Boyd, John Croyle, Lyman Davidson, Allen Feinstein, Chet Goldberg, Bob Gottsfield, Dick Arnold, John Haldiman, Henry Harris, Byron Harvey, Larry Pavilack, Adrian Phillips, Ted Pickett, Steve Pogson, Fred Steiner, Rox Stewart, and Dave West.
From this point the University Club grew and nurtured its tradition for elegant atmosphere, fine food and careful service.
Formerly a private residence, the University Club of Phoenix has maintained the beauty of this vintage 1917 home, while adapting the structure to meet the changing needs of our members and guests. The original living room offers a warm portal to the club’s main and private dining rooms. A large banquet room opens through the French doors onto a tiled patio and lushly landscaped backyard. The ambiance provided by the club offers a comfortable and relaxing environment for conducting business, and a warm and inviting setting for special occasions.
