The club is currently operating out of “The Bunkhouse”; a 4,000 square foot facility that will ultimately be integrated into a larger clubhouse campus. Golf cottages are planned for sale and member/guest use.

The par 72 golf course measures 7,099 yards from the championship tees, but each hole provides four to seven sets of tees to accommodate varying levels of skills. The course meanders through the natural terrain using only eighty acres of irrigated land as opposed to the typical golf course usage of one hundred and twenty-five acres. The course can play among the most challenging in Arizona. Other amenities include tennis on a variety of surfaces; grass, clay and Laykold, a natural grass putting course, swimming pools and fine dining, to name a few. Annual food and beverage minimums apply. Immediately following its opening in 1983, GOLF DIGEST ranked the Desert Highlands course as the “Best Desert Course in the Country” and the “Best Course in Arizona”. To accommodate players of all levels and abilities, we have 6 sets of tees. Course length varies from 5400 to 7100 yards. USGA course slope rating ranges from: men’s – 122-151; women’s – 122-135. Jack Nicklaus designed our 18-hole championship golf course. The golf course achieved its international fame with the first two SKIN GAMES in 1983-84. It continues to be one of the most beautiful, respected and sought after golf courses to play in the country. The 18-hole putting course was the first of its kind in the United States. 1997 Tom Doaks’ Confidential Guide rated Desert Highlands in the following categories: Most Beautiful Clubhouse, Best Putting Course, Best Practice Facility, Best First Tee, Best Club with Locked Gates. Only 28,000 rounds of golf were played at Desert Highlands in 1997.

Clubhouse Golf magazine named the Desert Highlands clubhouse as the “Third Best in the World”. There are over fifty special member events on the clubhouse calendar in a typical year. These events include monthly ladies’ luncheons with unique programs, special theme dinners, and annual “homecoming Party”, holiday parties and art shows. When you think of Scottsdale, Arizona, golf is usually the first thing that comes to mind. When you think of Desert Highlands golf, many think Jack Nicklaus. The course was designed by the Golden Bear in 1983 and it has been claimed that Desert Highlands has been designed around Nicklaus’ own playing style. That wouldn’t be surprising given the fact that Jack spent two years and twenty visits to the site before completion. Unusual also – each hole on the big tournament course provides four to seven sets of tees to accommodate varying levels of skills.

Hassayampa

Tom Weiskopf’s hands-on approach sets him apart from other course designers. Most PGA Tour professionals-turned-designers draw up a set of plans and hire someone to oversee the operations. Not Weiskopf he prefers to make all the final decisions. From tee-box locations, to the slope of greens, to the trees that should be planted, moved or removed, he has a vision of the finished product. And no one else can see it as clearly. Already acclaimed for his designs on the two high-desert Troon courses, as well as the Tournament Players Club and Flagstaff’s Forest Highlands, Weiskopf seemed a natural choice to design Arizona’s newest upscale membership course-Prescott’s Hassayampa Golf Club. Respecting the existing landscape and honoring the history of the course were strict themes in course design and construction. Instead of plowing down the tall chaparral, the course was instead sculpted out of the dense vegetation. As an alternative to disturbing the two environmentally sensitive natural creeks on the site, they became features of the course. The numerous boulder outcroppings offered features unique to the topography. In honoring the course’s historic value, six of the newly designed 18 holes run parallel to, overlay or dissect the original Hassayampa course built in 1919. An emphasis on manual care of the course results in a first-class charm. Wide cart paths are paved with hand-brushed concrete, instead of asphalt, for durability. The various elevations of the course, which range between 5,200 and 6,000 feet, allow for breathtaking views. While preparing for a tee shot, it’s difficult to overlook the 360-degree vantage points offered from many of the tee boxes. In the forefront stands the historical village of Prescott, nestled quietly among a circle of ponderosa pines that surround the town. While strolling along the nearly 6,700 yards of manicured fairways, golfers are treated to seemingly endless views of the horizon bisected only by numerous mountain ranges, including the often-snowcapped San Francisco Peaks. The mild climate and year-round playing season attracts residents with varying intentions. Four categories of tees are offered: Weiskopf (Championship), Tournament, Regulation, and Forward. Golf memberships are restricted to 390 golf memberships to ensure that intimacy and exclusivity remain at a premium. Residency is almost essential to play this course, as usage is restricted to members and their guests, although social memberships are available. To learn more about how you can begin living the Hassayampa lifestyle and create a lasting legacy of your own, contact Brian Young (602) 405-3949 direct line.

Wildfire Golf Club

Wildfire Golf Club is an upscale daily fee facility located in Northeast Phoenix/Scottsdale. Open for play in March of 1997, designed by Arnold Palmer and Palmer Course Design Company, Wildfire has quickly gained the recognition it deserves as one of the best new facilities to open in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Wildfire Golf Club is situated in the rugged Sonoran Desert that delivers a target golf experience yet the expansive fairways allow the player to remain in play even on a slightly errant shot. The flashed bunkering at Wildfire Golf Club is superb and so reminiscent of classical golf course designers as Tillinghast and MacKenzie. The putting greens carry plenty of undulation like many Arnold Palmer designs however, the expansive square footage of the greens (average size is 7,000 square feet) allow the undulations to create subtle challenges for the short game without feeling contrived or “tricked up”. Wildfire, while being lesser known than our neighbors to the east, Troon North and Grayhawk Golf Club, will deliver the experience you will remember and this discovery we are sure you will share with your golfing friends.

Strategically placed arroyos provide a good test of golfer’s shot-making skills from the tees, as well as approaching the greens. The greens are medium-sized and undulating. Water hazards, in the form of ponds, come into play on four holes. The signature hole is #17, a 209-yard par 3, featuring a segmented green that is guarded by large boulders on both sides. “GOLF Magazine” rated this course 42nd best under the 1996 category of the “Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S.”

Eagle Mountain

This is not a typical desert course because many holes feature grass from tee to green. Locals consider this more as a target course. One interesting feature is the natural box canyon that has been incorporated into the course design. There are several elevation changes, so be prepared for some uneven lies in the fairways. A lake comes into play on two holes. With four sets of tees, this course will challenge any skill level. The fairways are generous, featuring forty-foot landing areas, and the greens are undulating and range in size from small to medium.

Kierland Golf Club

This club has three nine hole courses that are played in three eighteen hole combinations. Many spectacular views of the surrounding mountains can be seen from off the course. There are elevation changes up to eighty feet, so be prepared for many uneven lies. All three course are comparable in difficulty. The landing areas are generous, and there are some parallel fairways. The greens are medium-sized and full of subtle undulations. The signature holes are #7 and #9 on the Acacia Course, #9 on the Mesquite Course, and #9 on the Ironwood Course. Of these four signature holes, the most difficult is hole #9 on the Mesquite Course, a 427-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot from off an elevated tee to a fairly generous landing area, then an approach shot to a green that is guarded by six bunkers and a lake.

Dove Valley Ranch Golf Club

This desert-style course is challenging but not frustrating to play. The course is grass covered from tee to green. The greens are large, moderately bunkered and have some slope. The fairways are open and forgiving, the front nine more so than the back, which is noticeably narrower. One of the more challenging holes on the course is #8, a 576-yard par 5, featuring a lengthy dogleg right fairway. Water comes into play on three holes.

TPC Scottsdale

This resort was named by “GOLF Magazine” to it’s 1998 List of “Silver Medal Resorts”. The Stadium Course is a spacious layout fringed by saguaro cacti and mesquite Trees, with a broad view of famed Pinnacle Peak to the north. This course can be quite a substantial challenge because of the mounds and bunkers strategically placed throughout it’s design. The course has a desert ambiance, but the natural terrain doesn’t come into play. Golf Digest Rated the Stadium Course as the 17th “Best in State” course for 1996. The PGA Phoenix Open is held here every January.

One of Pete Dye’s masterpieces, the 6,653 yard, par 72 design features signature mounding and bunkers reinforced with railroad ties, wide fairways, and contoured greens.  The inspiring layout combined with the native desert landscape of stately Saguaros, mesquite trees, and breathtaking rock formations captivates players from beginning to end.

 

 

Estrella Mountain Ranch Golf Club

As Jack Nicklaus II’s inaugural Arizona course, Golf Club of Estrella  offers a classic golf experience unlike any in the area. Following in his father’s legendary footsteps, Jack II’s daily-fee championship course is golf in the traditional sense — challenging yet forgiving, and always spectacular. Fairways roll across the natural contours of the land, while elevated tees unveil views of the Sierra Estrella Mountains. It is a course as remarkable as its heritage.

Jack Nicklaus II learned golf design from the best — his father, yet over time he has carved out his own niche and reputation. In keeping with the philosophy of Nicklaus Design, the course blends in with its environs and incorporates natural desert vegetation. The diverse terrain of this 7,102-yard course complies with Jack II’s goal of offering variety. “I want people to step away from my course having used every club in their bag,” he says.

The signature 17th hole, a 189-yard par 3, is set majestically into the rocky terrain and can be one of the few solid birdie opportunities of the course
Estrella Mountain Ranch, located just 20 minutes from downtown Phoenix, is a lakeside mountain community nestled in the Southwest Valley’s Estrella foothills.
