Experience the Ultimate Adrenaline Rush

New Beginnings and Big Plans for the Future of the Club

01 hwy signJoin the fun at Club Spring Mountain for a lifestyle of adrenaline pursuits and more.
Drive the longest road course in North America and try our 6.1-mile circuit in a myriad of configurations. 8 different varieties are on the calendar this month alone to test your skills! With the sun shining year-round on our oasis in the desert, we are forecasting a bright future ahead for our members with new amenities to experience. Now is the time to make Club Spring Mountain your home away from home.

Talk about first impressions! Nobody will miss us now...a new electronic billboard soaring 30 feet into the desert skies was recently erected at the entrance to the facility on Highway 160. The landmark, designed by High Impact Signs, measures 16x16 feet with a 12'x8' electronic display, featuring the Spring Mountain logo rising above the platform at the summit. This illuminated landmark is guaranteed to light up the area day and night.

02 brandonchelseababyA big welcome to our newest members, Albert Youngwerth and Nathan Schweigart. And a shout-out to our youngest new member, Brixton Rambo, Brandon and Chelse's newborn son, who enjoyed some rookie seat time at last month's race weekend.

03 sports car invitationalCelebrate with us at the upcoming Sports Car Invitational, May 4-6, with exciting events planned and three memorable days of driving. Bring your friends who have been wanting to drive on the Spring Mountain track and enjoy the festivities.

From cozy weekend race homes to spectacular showcases for your stable of vehicles, Spring Mountain Estates homeowners can access the finest road course in the nation. Mike Weeks, VP of Sales, can tell you more about how to own a piece of paradise. Call Mike today at 949-235-7810 to see available parcels.

05 track plotWe are still growing strong, with plans being formulated for the acquisition and development of 620 acres adjacent to the facility. The BLM land makes it possible for us to build new track, more paddock areas, and even an airstrip capable of landing our members' jets. We currently have the longest track in North America, but our goal is to build the longest road course in the world. The proposed layout at right is a schematic of a 16.07-mile track with countless numbers of potential driving configurations. (Please note this layout is subject to change.)

Our $13.4 Million Water and Sewer Treatment project is continuing on schedule and is nearly complete. The cul-de-sac lots have had their final grade, and paving of the area will continue during the next two weeks, with a final cap expected at the end of the month. Silverton Casino Resort’s plans are moving along for its mixed-use development project on a 7-acre portion of the commercial land at the entrance. The project is expected to break ground in the summer of 2018.

None of our progress would be possible without your enthusiasm and confidence, and we thank you sincerely for your membership.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Club this month!
