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.

Great Golfing Facility

Overall experience for the day was excellent.
Check-in and starters were great. They have a PA system to announce next group on tee around the range/putting area.
Course was in fantastic condition from tee to green.
Greens were quick and rolled true. Try to stay below the hole on a few of the holes.
Great elevation changes on several holes.... and no 2 holes are the same.
Would def play again when in the area !!

Little bit of everything

From the Minute we pulled into the parking lot and headed to the pro shop we were greeted with such a friendly and happy staff. They were very helpful and gave some really good pointers (ones we probably should have taken a little more seriously).

As for the course, lush green fairways and quick greens. There was some beautiful scenic views. Beautiful & high elevated tee boxes. The first 8-9 holes were pretty much a standard play, but after that you truly have to be methodical on your shots and where you want to be. Honestly this was one of our favourite courses we have played on so far.

Stunning Views and Fantastic Condition.

OMG...if you have not played this course in Pheonix you don't know what you're missing. Lookout Mount is simply breathtaking. Every hole is a story onto itself. The condition of the golf course is amazing it compares with any private country club I have played. The first hole and driving range are a bit of a long drive from the pro shop but don't let that worry you. When you approach the course there is a full range including chipping and putting greens perfect to get your game tuned up. Take lots of golf balls and bring your "A" game because this one will challenge you. The greens as you can imagine are "fast" down hill and tricky coming back.
Congratulations to all the staff especially the course superintendent your greens and fairways are pristine. Dreaming about my next round and how I am going to improve my score.

Superb

This is the best course I've played in the Phoenix area. The greens and fairways are immaculate. You need to think off every tee box, I only hit maybe 5 drivers all day. There was a 45 minute frost delay and we were very disappointed that the pro shop didn't make more effort to inform us of this as it meant we didn't get 18 played but they did reduce the price by a few dollars and they felt it was an issue with golfnow rather than at their end.
Overall wouldn't let that detract from a super experience, would recommend to anyone.

This is an awesome track

Everything about this course is great. The staff is friendly and helpful. The practice facility is groomed and includes range balls, chipping area and a putting green. The course is in great shape and is challenging but not so difficult you want to cry. The views from the elevated tee boxes are incredible. This is a course I will play again.

Fun But Tough

First five holes are fairly wide and flat. Next 13 are pretty targetty, with skinny fairways, long carries and sloped lies. Greens have al lot of slope so hit approaches below the hole. Four putts are common from above the hole especially on the short par number nine. Make sure you are right of the pin on that one. Coarse is fun if you have a lot of golf balls and like a challenge.

Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Club! We are happy that you enjoyed the course and the layout. The golf course does start off very generous and then starts to make you think a bit more starting at #7. Don't be deceived by the yardage as the greens are the meat of the course. We look forward to your future visits!

Awesome Views, Awesome Course

Course is in great shape and for the money, I highly recommend playing this course. Greens are fast and fair and the bunkers are well groomed as well...I should know, I played plenty in them. Fairways are also well manicured. Overall, for the money, this is a must play!

The thing I can say about this course is that about 80 percent of the holes look like signature holes it’s just amazing the layout of the holes and how they use the landscape to make a truly playable but beautiful course. And the conditions of the course is second to none.

Course in excellent shape

Despite heavy rains 2 days before, the course was in excellent condition from tee to green with no standing water like many of the other area courses. Starter always does a great job keeping groups on time and pace of play was perfect for the first 13 holes then backed up as it always does on #14 and #15. Greens are fast but true if you know how to read them.

Excellent

Extremely enjoyable round at a great price. Course is very well designed and makes you think. Would probably recommend playing it from the tips as it's not that long off the whites. Only hit driver about 6 times. One small gripe is that the bunkers could have a bit more sand. Otherwise excellent course and would happily play again.
