SALOME, Ariz., Feb. 28, 2017 — Like many RV parks that cater to snowbirds, Black Rock RV Village offers classes for women who enjoy quilting and sewing.

But the 408-site park, two hours west of Phoenix, also offers several unique activities for women, including “Desert Golf.”

“It’s not what you think,” said Lisa Wong, the park manager. “We have a natural course in the open desert with 18 holes!”

And at 9 a.m. every Friday, several women who spend the winter at the resort get together to brush up on their putting skills, while viewing the sights and sounds of the desert under clear skies and pleasant temperatures.

Black Rock RV Village also offers a “women’s only” exercise program Monday through Thursday that targets women’s needs and on the last Friday of the month there is a lady’s only luncheon celebrating women, their accomplishments and birthdays.

Once a month, the park also has a cooking demonstration hosted by the chef of the onsite restaurant, which features weekend prime rib and seafood buffets. This month's class focuses on watermelon carving and fruit and vegetable plate decorations.

On Friday, March 3, the resort will also have a high tea with a Wizard of Oz theme. “The ladies will dress for the occasion and be served by the gentlemen of the park,” Wong said.

Other activities at the park for men and women include card games, such as Desert Rummy, exercise classes, bean bag baseball as well as pot lucks, ice cream socials, jam sessions, Dauber Bingo and other social events.
