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.

Rainy morning, perfect afternoon.

Couldn't have asked for a better round. Course was cart path only which was to be expected with the weather. Friendly starter and outside services staff. Will be back!

Great course conditions!

I played this the afternoon of March 11th and the course was in excellent shape. Greens were great! The pace of play was perfect as well. Great views of the area and a really fun golf course. I would recommend for anyone coming to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area!

The course is in wonderful shape. Greens all ran at similar speeds and the sand traps were consistent. The guys at the club drop off we’re the most efficient and friendly I have ever seen. Great experience today

The course provides a great experience to the eye as well as a challenging layout. We enjoyed our time at Lookout Mountain from the start.

This course was well worth the value. We enjoyed our round of golf with a wonderful couple from Canada. This is a challenging course that offers wide open spaces and balanced greens. Lots of play and the grounds crew does a great job keeping it up to top conditions. My wife enjoyed the course and will return.

Lookout in Good Shape

The course was in very good condition and pace of play was ok. One thing that bothers me on this course is that they always ask for donation on the second par three on the front nine. Always seems to guilt us into it. I wish they would stop this. I understand on outing days but regular foursomes paying daily fees should not have to endure.

Nice course, great fairways; greens fairly fast but fair; elevation changes keep it challenging; several par threes and fives break up the monotony of some courses

This course has great views

This course will challenge every level of golfer. On the shots that look uphill, take at least 1 extra club and sometimes 2. That are more uphill than they appear.

Great layout

Course had a lot of elevation changes that made it challenging, but fair. Greens were in good shape. Had holes with wide fairways so you could catch your breath before tackling the more challenging holes. Great views.

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.

Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Club. We strive each and every day to maintain pace of play, utilizing an on-course marshal to assist guests that may be behind. The course does have a fun layout that can be difficult for some novice golfers. If you would like to discuss your visit in more detail, please email matt.nagel@hilton.com so we can improve upon your experience. We hope to see you again.
