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.

Interesting layout

Staff is friendly and helpful
Greens rolled true and at a good pace
Tee boxes ok
Fairways in good shape
Bunkers - was only in one green side - was in good condition

Pace of play a little slow - 4:30
Was not cart path only

Layout - was a little worried playing first three holes , pretty flat and run of the mill

Then the elevation changes started and the course was very interesting and challenging
Course plays shorter as several holes play downhill and takes the driver out of your hand ( 6500 from back tees)

Would play again

Course needs a redesign, the routing is terrible, seems you could fit another nine in the land if you did it correctly. Every freaking fairway pinches in at 275, hit multiple great drives that ended up in less than ideal areas. One a trap that i did not notice from the tee in the middle of the fairway, that just for a kick in the nuts is shaped like a heart and deep enough i had to hit sw out of. Speaking of the traps the really need some sand, seemed all were rock hard under a half inch. Greens ran well and speed was consistent albeit slow for my taste. Pace of play on the front was great but ground to a halt on the back 5:15 hour round.

I understand and normal conditions the extra charge that the course charged me for my wife to ride because she didn't play but during her ride with me and the course charged me $25 for her to ride with me I think that is sad and I did not appreciate it at all. Everything else about the course was fantastic but I don't think it's right to charge $25 for someone just to ride in a cart.

Good Shape

Course was in good shape considering they just opened a couple of weeks ago after overseeding. Greens were still a bit slow but certainly not bumpy. A few target golf holes which demand accuracy. A thinking course as a few fairways get tight at my length off the white tees. Staff were extremely friendly. Only drawback was 19th hole has been reportedly closed for a while due to covid.

Lookout Mountain Continues to be a Great Value

I played Lookout Mountain again today - the 3rd time since it reopened after overseeding - and continue to be very pleased with the course. It's cart path only for a few more weeks, but the walking is not too bad. Due to the elevation changes on many holes and sloping fairways, you cardio conditioning might be challenged. It will likely be another 2 weeks or so before the course is in ideal condition, but you will not be disappointed right now. The fairways are lush and still being cut down, so your ball won't roll much. The greens are in great shape, but running slow, so you need to adjust your putting speed. Finally, as always, the customer service is excellent.
