Recognized as the world’s “Best Recreational Community” (Robb Report), Desert Mountain has six Championship Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses. Three of the courses have been chosen by Golf Digest as among “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.” Residents also enjoy six distinctive, award-winning Clubhouses, including The Sonoran Clubhouse, the Club’s swim, tennis and fitness Clubhouse on which $12,000,000 has recently been spent for updating and expansion, and an extensive Sonoran Spa and Fitness facility that rivals those of the finest resorts and health clubs. The many amenities include the Southwest’s finest tennis facilities, saltwater lap and resort-style pools, a volleyball court, a basketball court, over 15 miles of hiking and biking trails, and a Kids Activity Center.
Each of the six world-class Nicklaus golf courses offers unique challenges for all levels of play, and each provides its own “golf experience” – from dramatic elevation changes to rolling fairways. Desert Mountain also offer its members the most extensive golf practice facilities in Arizona. There are multiple pitching, chipping, putting and bunker areas, and four separate practice ranges with target greens, as well as the availability of PGA-trained professionals. The Club also offers the Jim Flick Golf Performance Center, a state-of-the-art facility with five indoor/outdoor hitting bays opening up onto the Renegade range equipped with all manner of video and shot characteristic analysis; a Putting Studio equipped with a Quintec Ball Roll Monitor; club fitting for drivers, fairway “woods”, irons, wedges and putters; normal club repair work; lessons; independent use of the video equipment; and a physical fitness evaluation bay. No other private club in the world offers more to its members.
