No. 7 at Desert Mountain™ is Open!
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 Sandy allows you to play 18 holes teeing off from a bunker, playing for that sand save on each hole! This enables you to practice your short game approach shots from the sand or just have fun! The front tees have 14 of 18 holes your average golfer can play with a putter from the tee or play all 18 with two or three clubs, practicing your wedge game from 135 yards or having some fun putting off the Bentgrass Tees through the Bentgrass Fairways to the Bentgrass Greens! No other course provides you this unique golfing experience! The average playing time is 2 hours and 45 minutes, with most players choosing to walk and enjoy the beauty of the course and get that workout in for the day.
The landscape is visually stunning, resembling a peaceful desert parkland. A stream runs through the landscape, coming into play on five of the golf holes. The 15th, 16th and 17th holes play over the water feature and provide you all the challenge that you want from the back tees, with shots of 221 and 227 yards over water!
The putting surface of the 18th green and Putting Course are connected, creating a 22,000-square foot greens complex with portion of the putting surface lighted for night time enjoyment. The 10-person outdoor dining area overlooks the 18th hole and the Putting Course. The 18th hole doubles as an amphitheater for outdoor concerts and events.

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."
