Experience Luxury Living

As one of the world’s most prestigious and critically-acclaimed golfing communities, Desert Mountain is proud to announce the opening of Seven Desert Mountain.™ Specifically conceived to provide next-generation golfers with a reimagined playing experience, Seven Desert Mountain combines an unparalleled level of residential luxury and championship golf with the full complement of exclusive benefits and amenities enjoyed by members of the greater Desert Mountain club. And with most homes nestled alongside Seven Desert Mountain’s lush fairways, residents can savor commanding views of the desert’s majestic peaks and valleys throughout the year.

Our Story

Reason 1 Great Golf

Single course clubs don’t offer this kind of course variety, playing options, or grass that remains green year-round. Due to Desert Mountain’s higher elevation, cool season turf grows in abundance on four of our seven courses, providing more days of green grass golf than any other club.

Our Story

Reason 2 Location

Sitting at a slightly higher elevation than the Valley lowers temperatures by up to 10°, extending summer outdoor playtime and making for pleasant evenings.

Our Story

Reason 3 Social

Our diverse membership offers the chance for like-minded people to enjoy anything from a big bash on the lawn to an intimate wine tasting in the kitchen. Where do you want to be today?

Our Story

Reason 4 Dining

One or two dining options just won’t do! Members have their choice of 10 restaurants and grills, which means a cuisine for every palate, views from every angle, and a vibe for every mood.

Our Story

Reason 5 The Award-Winning Sonoran Clubhouse

It’s a lot easier to live healthy with such an abundance of active options to engage the entire family!

Our Story

Reason 6 The Great Outdoors

Desert Mountain boasts the only private, 20-mile award-winning trail system, equipped with the Club’s exclusive, interactive Trail Guide, a digital touchscreen that allows hikers and bikers to select routes based on distance, degree of difficulty, even the best sunset views.

Our Story

Reason 7 Seven Desert Mountain

At Seven Desert Mountain, new living options — homes that fit within the land, not on top of it — have just been released for move-in by late 2020. Up to 190 home sites are walkable to No. 7 at Desert Mountain, the Club’s newest and most delightfully challenging par-54 course, and a casual, lively clubhouse scene.

Our Golf Courses

  • 18 holes
  • 54 par
  • 3,114 yards

Serving as the focal point for the exclusive, 90-acre Seven Desert Mountain community, the course has been created to embrace the fun and social aspects of a golf community. This USGA-rated, championship par-54, 18-hole course layout plays at full length to 3,114 yards and was designed by Bill Brownlee and Wendell Pickett for the enjoyment and challenge of all ages and all skill levels, while incorporating a distinct short-game test. In conjunction with its playability for all ages, No. 7 at Desert Mountain features a special handicap system in place for match-play experiences, as well. No. 7 at Desert Mountain also introduces a new concept of an alternative teeing bunker on each hole, known as the "Sandy".


The Renegade course was the first of the six Jack Nicklaus Signature Courses to open at Desert Mountain and was once described by Golf Magazine as "the most versatile course in the world".

Opened in 1987, it is designed to allow golfers to choose their level of play. You can vary the set-up with two pin placements on every hole. The white pin location will be placed on the shorter of the two greens or the front portion of a shared green. The Gold hole location will provide a different experience altogether. Jack Nicklaus has described Renegade as "his easiest and most difficult design in one".


With lush Sonoran desert stretching out on every side, the 7,042-yard, Cochise course demands a thoughtful and strategic approach. This challenging course has hosted the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, the season-ending event of the TOUR Champions, from 2012-2016. The course is also the former site of The Tradition, a major TOUR Champions event that the Golden Bear won four times on Cochise.


Designed by Jack Nicklaus to appeal to golfers with traditional sensibilities, Apache is a 7,211-yard gentle par-72 course. Moderate, rolling fairways, ample greens with subtle, grassy catch areas and deceptively sloping putting surfaces will provide you with a relaxed round of golf. Apache was designed as a links-style course that winds gracefully through gentle desert terrain.


Described by Jack Nicklaus as "the strong looking course," Geronimo is perhaps the most visually intimidating of Desert Mountain's six courses. At 7,293 yards from the back tees, it winds its way through dramatic boulders, deep washes, ravines and lush desert and over stunning plateaus.


Jack Nicklaus' fifth course at Desert Mountain is considered by many golfers to be the pinnacle of the designer's desert achievements. Upon opening for play in 1999, Chiricahua was recognized by Golf Digest as one of the top new private courses in the U.S. The course combines the architecture of its four predecessors and features elevation changes ranging from 3,000-3,300 feet with stellar views of metro Phoenix and Scottsdale.


Desert Mountain's sixth course opened in 2003 to rave reviews for its traditional Scottish links design and location on a 176-acre site adjacent to the Tonto National Forest. Jack Nicklaus has said he was determined to "take what nature gave us and try to enhance it."
