Summer Activities at Desert Mountain

As the sun stays out longer and heats us up a little more, we’re looking at the many indulgent and exclusive events of our desert oasis.

Whether our members are partaking in invigorating fitness classes, a multitude of al fresco dining options, seven impeccably maintained golf courses, or one of the social clubs and community organizations, this summer is shaping up to be red hot. There are countless opportunities to do good for yourself, all while meeting like-minded people in a breathtaking desert setting.

Here’s a look at the menu of recreation and social pursuits happening this summer.

Wine & Wickets

Our members are kicking off the summer with wine and wickets! This event includes music, cocktail service, a seasonal charcuterie board, and of course croquet!

4th of July BBQ

We have the recipe for an amazing 4th of July: Family, friends, food, and fun! Our members are celebrating our great nation we get to call home. Complete with live entertainment and games for the entire family.

Paddle, Pints, & Pizza
Our Paddle, Pints & Pizza event is a casual float trip that provides an unique perspective of the Sonoran Desert and a chance to soak in the scenery. Members float down the Lower Salt River on guided rafting trips and discover a scenic and relaxing desert oasis just outside Phoenix. The Salt River attracts a variety of wildlife, including the famed Salt River Wild Horses making it common for us to enjoy close encounters with animals in their natural habitat.

Sunday Sushi Nights 

Sunday night sushi at Café Verde is extending through July! Members are enjoying the fresh fish and rocking rolls so much this new Sunday dinner option is sticking around for another month.

Tequila/Mezcal Dinner

Ivan Carreño of Carreño Mezcal takes members on a four-course journey to Oaxaca. This is where his family first began their process of creating their noteworthy Mezcals. This delicious dinner is not only fun but educational, too!

New Creative Cocktails for Summer 

A post round drink is always in season, but this summer, the drinks are cooler than ever! We’re toasting to another summer’s day on the Mountain with a Infused Gin Lemonade, Watermelon Martini, and Key Lime Pie Martini. These drinks are sure to quench your thirst or cool you down on a hot summer’s day.

Tee Off to Summer

Desert Mountain is the only private community with six Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses and a par-54, 18-hole course, No. 7 at Desert Mountain™, and each is designed to offer an individual playing experience for golfers of all skill levels. Plus, sitting from 2,400 up to 4,500 feet high and above nearby Phoenix creates an 8- to 10-degree variation in temperature that makes all the difference when the golf courses beckon.

Relax and Rejuvenate

The magnificent 10,000 square foot Sonoran Clubhouse is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. It is an oasis for Desert Mountain members and features three resort-style swimming pools, including one adults-only saltwater lap pool. There is also a poolside snack bar that serves cold drinks, smoothies, and burgers.
