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 day

First out- course was prestine.
Cart guys were nice. Guy in the pro shop was apprarently one of the pros and had the personality of a sloth. Grouchy and not saying much at all.
Overall - fun course.

Great experience

First time at Lookout Mountain. A little tricky finding the entrance from the north. Great staff. Met by John at the bag drop. He was very welcoming, high energy-made me feel like I made a good choice to play here. Course in excellent condition. Nice variety of holes. Good layout. Some wow views. Some blind shots which led to a few surprises. Pace of play was great-played in fewer than 4 hours. Great value. Look forward to coming back.

Enjoyable, but slow

It's spring break and the courses will be busy and slow. I get that. But when you play the front in 1:50 and the back in 2:30, there was a log jam somewhere. Saw a Marshall sitting under a tree for over an hour, but did not move. Irritating. 4 groups on the 15th.

Having said that, the course is fun, in great shape and appeals to all handicaps. Great views, amenities and a great place to play. The practice area was very nice and the balls were included. Overall a great course, in good shape and affordable. Certainly will be back.

marbros1,
Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Club! We appreciate all the positive feedback about the golf course and services. Pace of play is very important to us and while you finished in our expected time of 4:20, it likely seemed longer due to the slower back 9. A lot of that has to do with the variety of holes and a little more difficulty than the front. We look forward to your future visits!

Lookout Mountain was unique.

I played this course on a Saturday. Although this is more of a resort course, I found the fairways and the greens were in excellent condition for the amount of play! My only concern was the pace of play. The ranger tried to move people along but was not having much luck. I would definitely recommend this course to play as I enjoyed the layout as well as the views.

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.

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.
