Comprising 6 private Championship
Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, it provides golfing opportunities like no other in the North Scottsdale area with the courses offering varying forms of difficulty and terrain.
The Renegade Course
At 7,524 yards, Renegade Course was the first of the six Jack Nicklaus courses to open at Desert Mountain and was once described by Golf Magazine as “the most versatile course in the world.” Opened in 1986, it is designed to allow players to choose their level of play. You can vary the course’s set-up with two pin placements on every hole. The white pin is typically set forward on the green while the golf pin is more difficult and is set either on the same green or a different green altogether. Tee box alternatives include gold, blue, white and red. You can select a tee box and pin placement before the round, thus selecting the degree of difficulty preferred. The combination of Renegade’s tee and pin positions offer players of varied skill levels a truly unique test of their game. The result is a equally varied slope and course ratings, ranging from 150/75.7 to 121/66.7.
With the spectacular Sonoran Desert stretching out on every side, the 7,019 yard, Cochise Golf Course
demands a thoughtful and strategic approach. This challenging course is the former location of The Countrywide Tradition, a major annual PGA Senior Tour event and part of the Senior Slam. Its signature holes are four of the finest “risk/reward” par fives to be found anywhere. With rolling fairways surrounded by water and dramatic desert rock outcroppings, this magnificent course offers you a true test of your skill. Approach shots require precision shot-making and contoured greens require a golfer’s deftest touch. The hallmark of the course is the par-3 seventh hole and par-5 fifteenth hole. The double green for these 2 holes sits on a picturesque island, approached by two different directions. Jack Nicklaus himself has called Cochise Course “one of the most picturesque golf courses in the world”. The Golden Bear triumphed four times when Cochise played host to “The Tradition,” a major championship on the Senior PGA Tour.
Designed by Jack Nicklaus to appeal to golfers with traditional sensibilities, the Apache course is a 7,211 yard gentle par-72 course. Moderate, rolling fairways and deceptively sloping putting surfaces will provide you with a relaxed round of golf. Apache was designed as a links style course with easy, rolling fairways through the desert terrain and the challenge of this course is the length and elevation changes. Large lush greens appear as extensions of the fairways. Many members say it is important to master uphill or downhill shots. The eighteenth hole features two separate greens with the more difficult green set into a hillside bordered by an unforgiving wash known for its appetite for golf balls. So it’s not surprising that Apache is best known for its “disappearing green”. Built in the old Scottish tradition, the entire putting surface is not visible. It is a challenging, yet playable course for players of all skill levels.
Described by Jack Nicklaus as “a strong looking course”, Geronimo is perhaps the most visually intimidating of the six courses at Desert Mountain. At 7,420 yards from the back tees, it winds its way through dramatic boulders, deep washes, ravines and lush desert showcasing large elevation changes balanced by stunning plateaus. The drama of Geronimo is evident from the first hole, a stunning 570-yard par five with a large elevation drop to a broad fairway. The hole requires a well-struck second shot to set up the proper position to attack this shallow, well bunkered green. While some of the front nine holes might deceptively lead you to believe it is a gentle course, the back nine will surely changes that impression. The last hole is a 160-yard, par 3 that requires an exacting shot over a canyon to a two-tiered green between sand bunkers. For every carry over a deep ravine, designer Jack Nicklaus provides a safe route for those less daring shot makers.
For many golfers, Chiricahua, the fifth Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course, represents the pinnacle of the designer’s desert achievements. With elevations of ranging from 2,800 to over 3,600 feet, Chiricahua towers dramatically over the other courses at Desert Mountain providing some of the best views within this epic golf community. At 7,424 yards, this par-72 masterpiece showcases majestic views from nearly every tee and features welcoming, generous fairways. But properly placed tee shots are a must for the best approaches to its large, undulating greens. Truly a masterwork of design, Chiricahua Golf Course provides endless variety for you and your guests as flows through the Village of Saguaro Forest to the foot of the famous Constantino’s restaurant.
The sixth and final course at Desert Mountain, Outlaw course opened in 2003 to rave reviews for its traditional Scottish links style. Located on a 176-acre site adjacent to the Tonto National Forrest, Jack Nicklaus has said he was determined to “take what nature gave us and try to enhance it”. The spectacular desert landscape includes many subtle terrain features including native washes, gentle rolling hills and many spectacular views. Bring your ground game, as this course asks you to hit a variety of high, low and bump and run shots. Outlaw does not have any homes built along it and you’re encouraged to walk the course and play the way the game was meant to be.
