Rating 70.0
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 course!

I play this course once or twice a year and the conditions have been getting better every time I play it. Fairways and greens were in great shape! The pace of play has always been good for the most part. Staff is friendly!

Poorly Managed

I like this golf track but management can do a much better job. Poor pace of play. They seem to ignore comments to this issue. The course itself is a good layout but it is looking tired and run-down. Time for Hilton to do some upgrades.

Would play again

Generous fairways, but quick and sloped greens meant course was a reasonable challenge

Course was in good condition, and pace of play was excellent.

Best recommendation is that I would play again

Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Club! We hope you enjoyed a little bit of the new layout since 2001. Although the yardage is lower than most courses, it still presents challenges all throughout your round. We hope you will get to visit again soon!

Nice course with fun layout

I’ve played a lot of courses that have 4 star rating this one was certainly 4-5 stars. Excellent condition, variety of holes meaning each were rather unique. Pace was bit slow but mainly due to frost delay. Certainly would play again.

Cold day on terrific course

Today the weather was gray, cloudy, and cold (45-50º) but that didn't dampen the day. The course was in terrific shape and the round was a great one. The course "postcards" with paces and info to traps etc. make the playing the course and avoiding traps, OB, etc. easier. I am a 10 handicap, and usually have a few shots that could be better, but the course was fairly forgiving, yet challenging so as to not make it really easy. The views ( on a clear day) must be really great. The only thing was 1 or 2 holes had cart path only which made it harder (slower) to play. But all in all I loved the course and will definitely play it again if in Phoenix again.

Good condition, fun day

Bumpy practice green and short driving range but nice range mats and nice bunker/short game area. Greens were slightly slow but they probably need to be due to the steep slopes on some of them.

Shortish length from the white tees, fairly wide fairways but lots of desert hazards, deep bunkers and sloping greens. Healthy over seeded grass. Very good layout and routing with many beautiful tee overlooks. Excellent service. Had a great time and will return.

Always a good experience

I have played this course several times over the years and it has retained its high standards. The other golfers were courteous and let me through as a I was a single. The staff was knowledgeable and gave me precise instructions. The fairways are not quite as pristine as some other Troon managed courses but very playable.
