Our Story

Top 7 Reasons to call Desert Mountain Home

Fact sheet    Testimonials


1 Great Golf

Desert Mountain Club is home to seven exceptional golf courses set within 8,000 acres of pristine mountainside terrain. It is the only private community in the world with six Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, plus a recently introduced USGA-rated, championship par-54 course called No. 7 at Desert Mountain, designed by Bill Brownlee and Wendell Pickett.

The Desert Mountain Difference:

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.

2 Location

Located in North Scottsdale, 10 minutes from full-service grocery stores, drug stores, retail and gas, 20 minutes from upscale shopping and restaurants, 45 minutes to Chase Field, downtown Phoenix and Sky Harbor International Airport.

The Desert Mountain Difference:

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

3 Social

Desert Mountain Club is a community of friends and family. With more than 50 social clubs, the opportunities to connect, play, and celebrate are limitless. No matter what interests you — charitable outreach, gardening, dog park “Yappy Hours”, trivia nights, progressive dinners, cooking classes, book clubs — we have it all.

The Desert Mountain Difference:

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?

4 Dining

Hungry for fish tacos, premium steak, sushi or maybe an old-world Italian feast? How about a breakfast sandwich before your round of golf or a refreshing mimosa while enjoying the spectacular views? We have you covered.

The Desert Mountain Difference:

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.

5 The Award-Winning Sonoran Clubhouse

Our “Club within the Club”, The Sonoran features fitness, sports, golf croquet, bocce ball, pools, salon and spa and a “natural choice” quick-serve restaurant. We have a nine-court tennis complex featuring grass, clay and hard surfaces, as well as six pickleball courts, Pilates, TRX, spin, free weights and cardio, all to keep you active indoors and out. The Youth Center offers tutoring, seasonal camps and outdoor activities for the kids, and the Bocce Leagues are one of our most popular social activities.

The Desert Mountain Difference:

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

6 The Great Outdoors

The opportunity to be outside is a key reason people live in Desert Mountain. Our members have more private, pristine miles to explore than any community in the area, along with on-site horseback riding, luxury camping and sunset yoga.

The Desert Mountain Difference:

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.

7 Seven Desert Mountain

The newest enclave of Desert Mountain, offering a unique way to live, Seven Desert Mountain is now accepting reservations for brand new custom homes, semi-custom single-family residences and stacked-flat condominiums.

The Desert Mountain Difference:

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.
