The Jim Flick Peformance Center – The Most Technologically-Advanced Golf Performance Center in the Country
There’s no other way to say it. Arizona, Scottsdale in particular, is a golfing Mecca. With a warm climate, mighty saguaros, and pristine fairways, it should come as no surprise that golfers flock to this region.
And this time of year is the peak season in the Scottsdale area for resort stays and golf. In addition to perfect conditions from December through March, the Waste Management Open begins the first week in February. Dubbed as the “The Greenest Show on Grass,” The Waste Management Phoenix Open is the best-attended golf tournament in the world, with more than 700,000 fans in attendance.
For many of these fans, golfing is one of life’s absolute essentials. With over 200 golf courses in the Scottsdale and Phoenix area to choose from, it’s easy to find a course that suits the tastes of all golfers. And if you know Seven Desert Mountain, you know you have nothing to worry about in that department. For one thing, there are seven world-class golf courses to choose from. The variety of lush grasses gives Desert Mountain Members another bonus. Golfers can come to Arizona and play all the grasses they’ll find in the other 49 states.

Named after one of golf’s legendary instructors, who spent more than 18 years at Desert Mountain, the Jim Flick Performance Center is 6,500 square feet dedicated to teaching golf’s key elements, swing, fitness, the mental game, and club fitting. Equipped with the latest technology and dedicated staff, the center can introduce someone to the game while making even the most skilled golfer better.
Some of the center’s technology include:
Gesture recognition to provide real-time lessons
A Science of Motion Balance lab and Science and Motion putt lab to work on kinesiology and form
3-D Doppler monitors to measure ball flight and golf club information
An AMM 3-D sensor, often referred to as the “MRI of a golf swing.”
Our teaching professionals are certified through PGA, LPGA, and Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). These PGA pros work with this sophisticated technology and the pro shop to custom fit clubs and putters to a player’s specific golf swing. It doesn’t get much more personal than that!
