Westwind Residents, Guests, and Friends-

April has arrived! The temperature is climbing steadily, and a good number of Snowbirds are on their way north once again. The stragglers are sure to follow shortly, and then we will settle down to the routine of running a summertime resort, which is totally different than what you experience here during our winter season. However, things do not come to a halt, and we do not lock the gates and disappear until fall. We work diligently on upgrades and improvements to our facilities. We paint, build, and repair whatever needs some love, and throughout the Summer we greet tired and weary RVers who come in every night. Our staff works conscientiously every day, not only during the winter months, but throughout the year. We cannot thank them enough for their commitment and hard work!

They are the ones who lifted Westwind RV and Golf Resort to the status of the number one resort in southwest Arizona! They are the reason we are awarded the respected 10/10/10 rating from Woodall’s and have become one of the top 50 resorts in North America year after year. Thank you for all of your passion and dedication to us and Westwind RV and Golf Resort.


Our resort is a scenic 80 acre world class facility, with panoramas of ponds nestled in the green carpet of our 9-hole, par 3, golf course.There are rugged mountains that blush in shades and hues of dazzling colors as the sun crawls across the sky. Our amenities are second to none. We have it all: from special shows to Friday night dances, to exercises for brains and bodies, to games of skill, to every kind of art and craft there is. No doubt about it, Westwind is the perfect vacation or retirement resort for anyone who is looking for quality and excellence in their life.


Along with Special Entertainment Shows, the bands we have come to love over the years will return again next season for our Friday night dances. The Dakota Players, Dependables, Upper Room White Horse, and Old Time Rock and Roll Band. They play nothing but the best good-time music there is. On Wednesdays we always have karaoke with Janie, going on in the Cheers Lounge. Music will surround you on Saturdays when the joint BBQ and pool party get together to have fun in the sun. If you so desire, you can sing along with The DeLeons, who are back and in charge of our music on Saturdays.

We are a golf resort, but do not make the mistake of thinking it is an easy course. While it is both fun and beautiful, it is also a challenge. You can join a ladies or men’s league, and there is always a scramble or even night golf that you can participate in. Bring your clubs and have some fun chasing that little white ball around the palm trees, in the sand, and ponds. You will love it!

HAPPY HOUR FROM 4:00 – 6:00 EVERY DAY – ALL DAY SUNDAY

When people arrive at Westwind, they are amazed by the excellent facilities, amenities, our friendly and cordial staff, and all the services we have to offer. We believe our resort is first class, and we pride ourselves on the fact that our hard work and dedication is the reason why so many visitors come back year after year. Every season, some of you came to visit on a ‘four day special’ and loved what you saw so you decided to become annual members. Some of you sold your nomadic wheels for a more permanent undercarriage, and ended up buying a Park Model to plant your roots at Westwind just to be part of our fantastic life here in the desert southwest.

To all of you, whether a visitor or resident, THANK YOU for spending part of your life with us. Take care, drive safe, and have a wonderful summer! We are looking forward to seeing you here, back home, in the fall!

-Sylvia & Jim Bergren, Managers

Westwind RV & Golf Resort Pool

The Winter is raging all over the United States, but we are snug as a bug in a rug, right here at Westwind RV and Golf Resort! The only place to be at this time of year. We have been a bit cooler than normal, but the sky is blue, the sun shines every day, Spring is on the horizon, and we have absolutely nothing to complain about! We are, what you might say, Living the Good Life, so if you are not here already, please come and join us. We would love to show you all the activities we have to offer. Our promise: You will not be disappointed!

Concerts and Shows

February marks the middle of our season, and what a season it has been so far. If you follow us on Facebook or on the website, you know that we have all kinds of mental and physical activities to offer our patrons, but we also have an incredible array of Special Musical Shows, dances, and sing-alongs.

Just look at the assortment of shows we had the first half of our season:

December started it all off with ” A Classic Country Christmas,” which put us all in the holiday spirit.

That was followed, in January, by four more excellent shows:

  • “Dream Lover – A tribute to Bobby Darin”
  • “Abbey Road Band – A tribute to the Beatles”
  • “Good Rockin’ Live – A salute to Sun Records”
  • “The New Take it to the Limit – A tribute to The Eagles”

And, as you have come to expect, we had the dance bands who filled the Crystal Ballroom every Friday night with your kind of song and music: “The Dependables,” “The Old Time Rock and Roll Band,” “The Dakota Players, and “The Upper Room.”

A little reminiscence is all well and good, but what do you have for us the last half of the season? Well, funny you should ask. We are proud to inform you that we are going to have an even more busy and eventful second half than the first.

Special Entertainment Shows Lined Up for February:

The British Invasion“British Invasion”
Saturday, February 06, 2016
We all know the Beatles changed the game when it comes to rock and roll, but let us not forget all the other great bands who swept onto our shores from across the pond! There was a shift in the musical culture in the mid 1960’s when mop-topped rockers from across the Atlantic began to rule the airwaves. Saluting hit-makers such as Herman’s Hermits, The Animals, The Rolling Stones, the Dave Clark Five and many more, this is one invasion you won’t want to resist!

“My Funny Valentine”
Saturday, February 13, 2016
Richard Rodgers is recognized as one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, having written more than 900 songs and 40 musicals during his career. We will pay tribute to this musical master with an evening of song that includes selections from a small sample of his Broadway hits, including Oklahoma, The Sound of Music, and South Pacific. And no salute to Rodgers would be complete without soul-stirring favorites like “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “Blue Moon,” “Do You Hear a Waltz,” and of course, “My Funny Valentine.”

The KingstonTrio“The Kingston Trio”
Matinee – 2:00pm OR Evening 7:00pm
Saturday, February 20, 2016
The Kingston Trio’s trademark three-part harmony and clean, crisp sound keeps them touring 30 weeks out of the year and has resulted in an increasing number of new fans both young and old. Their songs include “Tom Dooley,” and “The MTA.” The Kingston Trio today consists of George Grove, Bill Zorn and Rick Dougherty.

“December ‘63’ – A Tribute to Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons”
Saturday, February 27, 2016
The music of Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons comes to life in this re-creation of a Frankie Valli concert experience. “December ’63” showcases all your favorite songs from Frankie Valli including the one-of-a-kind classics that have been thrilling audiences for decades including everyone’s most popular singles from the musical The Jersey Boys. In 1962, the group released their first album, featuring the single “Sherry,” which was not only their first charted hit but also their first number- one song ”Oh What a Night!”.

Fun Weekly Activities!

Mondays: Pot Luck in the Coyote Room. Half priced Specials in the Cheers Lounge (4:00-6:00pm only), and Bingo in the Crystal Ballroom.

Welcome to the FUN season at Westwind RV & Golf Resort

For those already here, Welcome! For those of you on your way, we can’t wait to see you and show you all that’s new at Westwind RV & Golf Resort!

Dear Snowbirds,

It has been a long, hot summer, but the season is finally here and in full swing! But before we get to this month’s activities, we would like to acknowledge our dedicated staff members that worked so hard all summer to get our Five Star resort ready for this season. Our many thanks to all of you!

Migel, our new groundskeeper, has worked miracles with the golf course, which is greener and in better shape than ever.

Golf Course

In addition, you will find upgrades to the kitchen and to Cheers Lounge; new outside seating for our dining patrons, and new pergolas to add a touch of class – which add some shade from the afternoon sun. And, there is a new bar that will serve our guests both at the pool as well as in the Ballroom. Pretty cool!

OutsideFriday Night Dances are Back!
Dakota PlayersAs always, we have great bands providing Friday Night dance music, so get those dancing shoes spit shined, and lubricate those old knees. We are going to have a blast!

Head’s up: If you want to reserve a seat at a table, please purchase your $5.00 tickets as soon as they become available, as many of our dances sell out fast!

Join us on November 27 when we will be entertained by Dakota Players.

November has all kinds of activities for you to take part in: There is golf, exercise, ball games, arts and crafts, card games, classes, and dances – things that will keep your mind and body active all month long!

View our Shows and Entertainment Calendar here.

For your convenience, please find attached the 2015-2016 Activities Calendar that you can print out and keep on hand.

It’s A Beautiful Day At Westwind Resort

Here are the latest updates from your favorite resort in Yuma:

LibraryThe Westwind library has a complete makeover. We have installed new carpet, it’s freshly painted and it looks terrific. Both the south and north hallways leading to the ballroom have been updated with new tile floors, paint and ceiling.

To help keep our golf course in shape and beautiful, we are proud to welcome aboard Miguel Cibrian, a seasoned course superintendent from Corona, California where he maintained a 200-acre golf course for over 20 years. Miguel hit the ground running and has already begun the upgrades, making improvements to the greens, tee boxes and more, helping to make our course one of the leading golf courses in the area. You will feel the excitement and see the improvements as you step on Westwind’s beautiful updated course this coming season.  Watch for pictures of the improvements coming in November’s newsletter!

Terri and HenryWe would like to thank Bob & Jimmie Bergeron for all their years of service and dedication. They will be missed by all. Henry & Terry Felszer will be taking their place and are very excited working with all our guests. You all know Henry and Terry from the Cheers Lounge where they worked for several years serving you all those great drinks and good food.

We look forward to seeing all again.

New This Season at Westwind RV & Golf Resort

The 2015-2016 season is almost here, and this will be the best season ever at Westwind RV & Golf Resort.  We can’t wait for you to see all that’s new!

Dear Snowbirds,

Remember that song about the “lazy, hazy crazy days of summer”?  Well, not here at Westwind!  It’s been excessively hot, but that hasn’t slowed down our staff and crews from making our resort shine with updates and improvements.  Here are just a few:

Newly paved roads and parking.parking lot

All roads and parking areas have been professionally resurfaced and are simply beautiful.  This was a huge task, but was well worth the effort, and we’re delighted that the job is completed in plenty of time for your arrival.

bathroomMen’s Restroom Remodeled, New Tee Markers

One of the challenges of maintaining a 5 Star Resort is keeping every detail current and up to date. But just check out the “facelift” to the men’s restroom! Pretty nice, huh?  And Kevin did a great job giving the tee markers a fresh new look that complements the other exciting improvements you’ll find to our already great golf course!tee markers

concertOpening Halloween Costume Dance – October 31!

Upper Room BandWhat better way to officially kick off the season than with a ‘welcome back’ dance, and this year’s will be a doozy! It falls on Halloween, so choose a costume and come prepared for a good time.  Upper Room, the band that entertained us at our Mardi Gras dance last year, will play for us again, so it is sure to be an epoch event.

All your old favorites will be back!

Everything that you’ve come to know and love about Westwind RV & Golf resort will still be here when you arrive – Taco Tuesday’s, Karaoke with Shirley every Wednesday and Barry Pippen on Thursdays at Cheers Lounge; Pool-Side Barbecue with live entertainment every Saturday; Friday night dances with some of the best bands in the region; great golf, activities and classes; and of course the spectacular shows in the Crystal Ballroom.

And perhaps best of all, all your friends will be back to make this season the most memorable yet at Westwind.

Have you made your reservations yet?  If not, don’t delay!  And why not invite some new friends to come with you this year?  There’s plenty of room for them too, and the more, the merrier!

We can’t wait for you to see all that’s new at Westwind RV & Golf Resort, and are eager to welcome you back soon!
