Rim Club Adding New Salon; Natural Food Store Behind Walgreens Scrapped


The Rim Club is known for having the best — including great food, custom homes and golf course.

But the clubhouse is missing one thing — a spa.

Most high-end golf clubs offer salon and spa services for members, but at The Rim Club, a spa had never really taken root. When the company that built The Rim Club and its sister property, Chaparral Pines, went bankrupt several years ago, the three rooms built specifically for salon services at The Rim Club

sat empty.

Now, under the ownership of Black Buffalo Corporation and OB Sports, which is owned by Phil Mickelson and Steve Loy, a salon will open Monday.

The Mountain Spa will feature two hair stations, nail services, the services of four massage therapists and an esthetician in June, said Lynn Nordstrom, who is heading up the salon.

The salon will hold a soft opening Monday and an open house Memorial Day weekend.

While initially only open to Chaparral Pines and Rim Club members, the spa may eventually open to the public depending on demand, Nordstrom said.

Loy spoke with Lynn about opening a salon soon after he hired her husband, Steve Nordstrom, as the club’s general manager in January.

The couple previously lived in California and Lynn worked as an independent hairdresser in La Jolla.

Loy reportedly hopes to meld the two golf clubs together and the salon is one way to offer both sets of members a new service.

“A lot of members go to Scottsdale, but we are hoping they give us a try for the summer and save themselves the trip,” she said.

Expansion work

Paper and Metal Scrappers has expanded in the Sawmill Crossing. The small scrapbooking store, at 201 W. Main St., Suite C, recently had an adjoining wall torn down, providing more room for a workshop. Four new tables have been added.

New solar panels

The Town of Payson approved Pineview Manor adding a solar system to the senior housing complex. The manor, at 304 S. Clark Road, has been undergoing remodeling for some time, which is expected to wrap up soon.

Health food store plans canceled

Plans to open a health food store west of Walgreens have fallen through. In January, the Town of Payson Design Review Board approved plans to open a Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage at 111 W. Longhorn Road. On Tuesday, economic director Mike Vogel confirmed that the project stalled after the company did some market research.

There are still plans to open Vitamin Cottages in Prescott and Sedona.
