Type Resort
Lookout Mountain Golf Club at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort receives distinctions: Golf Digest placed it among the top 450 U.S. public courses, and it regularly features among Arizona's best 25 golf course. It doesn't hurt that the golf club regularly hosts eye-catching affairs like the Harmon Killebrew Invitational, the Royce Clayton Charity Classic and the Phoenix Suns Scramble. The golf course itself offers lush greens that entwine with the Sonora Desert's terrain, which the golf club says it carefully preserves, and features 18 holes of championship golf in tandem with magnificent scenery and plenty of challenges. There's a fairly good chance that golfers will catch sight of a quail or coyote out on the Lookout Mountain Golf Club at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, and management asks that layers give the critters the right of way. In order to ensure golfers' shots go straight and don't snag in a cactus or chuckwalla, the club offers both individual and group glf lessons. This is also a place to enroll in the Hilton Golf Academy. That's before the round at the Lookout Mountain Golf Club, though: Afterward, mosey on back to the 19th hole, called the Pointe In Tyme, for the drinkables and eatables.

Fun Golf

The staff was great, the course was enjoyable, the greens were fun with as much as 4 to 5 feet of break on some holes. I would recommend for an enjoyable golf day and enjoy a beer after in the bar.

The most scenic course ive ever played

Where do I start??? every hole on this course was excellent, deep bunkers that actually have dirt in them not sand but they were raked very nicely (fluffy dirt), front 9 was very challenging especiallly when you reach the 7th hole, there signature hole, get your camera out when you reach this hole, scenery is breath taking. The scenery kinda takes your mind off of golf for a few minutes, from the 7th hole through the back 9 is a total test of your game. love the 10th hole with a 200 ft drop off to the fairway, grip it and rip it on this hole and watch it fly..well we will be back for sure...loved this course.

Very nice day

The course was in beautiful shape. Staff was very nice. The course is very challenging but a lot of fun. I like the new green light red light feature for the blind tee shots.

Nice, challenging course, great service

The facilities weren't that great (club house, restaurant, etc.) but the course was fun and the treatment from everyone (pro shop, starter, bag drop guy, cart gal) were all fantastic--the best service anywhere (even better than Pebble Beach!).

Great job

Course had been hit really hard by storm a few days earlier. Staff did in unbelievable job making it playable. First hole was understandably closed. Starter had offered to let us play a few extra holes for inconvenience. I’ve been coming here many years and have never seen damage like this. Great job by all to provide great experience. One of my favorite layouts. Your cheating yourself if you don’t play this course. Thanks lookout mountain.

Azsoxfan69,

Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Club and for your continued patronage. We are happy to know you experienced a great day of golf while we were cleaning up for a big monsoon storm. Our maintenance staff did an amazing job to get the course playable as fast as possible and the golf course certainly appreciates the rain it received. We look forward to your future visits!

Played after Storm

I would like to say first, that the lay out of the course is awesome. I unfortunately played the morning after a Big Storm and had the the first tee time. I was told to slow my pace down to the maintenance crew fixing hole on the course. I understand stand that,but why let me start if your not ready. I played 5 holes with no pins in place. I will give the course another shot tho

First Time on This Course

Staff was friendly. Pace of play was excellent. Greens were in pretty good condition. Tee boxes and fairways are struggling a bit due to hot weather. First time to play this course. Quite a number of holes feature great views. Played with my wife and she felt the course was women friendly for the most part. Typical of Arizona courses, there are many holes that have quite a bit of carry for both the back and white tees. Would recommend this course to a friend and will be back.

Good challenge

The course offered several tee boxes for our group so each was challenged. The greens were in great shape. Would like to have seen more water stations throughout the course.
