Scottsdale's Desert Mountain Features 6 Jack Nicklaus Golf Courses

Posted by Bart Mruz on Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015 at 12:01pm.

Desert Mountain is a luxury gated golf course community in the High Sonaran Desert area of North Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Arizona. There are a total of 32 communities located in Desert Mountain with a wide variety of golf course, cottage and luxury homes.

Golfing at Desert Mountain needs little introduction because it is known for its world class golf courses. Since its opening in 1986, Desert Mountain has attained local and international recognition for having some of the world's finest courses. In fact, it is the only private club in the world to offer six Jack Nicklaus golf courses - Renegade, Cochise, Geronimo, Apache, Chiricahua and Outlaw. This makes it the world's largest collection of Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses in a single location. While the Cochise course was ranked highly by the Senior PGA Tour, all the other courses also consistently ranked well in national golf magazines' Top 100 lists. For instance, the Renegade course was described as "the most versatile course in the world" by Golf Magazine.

All the six courses are world class 18-hole courses personally designed by Jack Nicklaus himself. Set against the picturesque backdrop of the desert mountains and open skies, they look perfect just like poster pictures. Other than blending into the natural settings harmoniously, each course is designed with unique challenges to offer a different golfing experience for players of all levels.

While the Chiricahua course offers generous fairways, towers over all other courses and provides dramatically stunning views of the community, the Outlaw course was built to totally blend in with the natural desert landscape with no homes built around it so that players are encouraged to walk the entire course. The Geronimo course winds through dramatic boulders, deep washes and stunning plateaus in the desert scenery. The Apache course is challenging with its length and elevation changes and built such that the entire putting surface is not visible, making it perfect for mastering uphill and downhill shots.

With dramatic elevation changes, rolling fairways and perfect course conditions in every course, there is nowhere else that the players will find a similarly engaging and unique golfing experience.

The club also provides members with the most extensive golf practice facilities in Arizona. Other than many pitching, chipping, putting and bunker areas, there are four separate practice ranges with target greens. The newest Jim Flick Golf Performance Center is the only one in the country and features the most advanced technology available today - 3D motion capture, dopple radar and four-camera video motion technology. These indeed are using technology to help golfers understand and improve their play. Alternatively, for those who prefer a little more personal attention, there are PGA trained professionals to help members of any skill level.

An herb garden is complemented by an English Rose Garden with a firepit, the perfect place to enjoy a quiet chat, a glass of wine, or possibly a special cigar.

A copper-topped, custom finish wet bar with room for four pull-up bar stools is a welcomed evening retreat for you and your guests.
