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.

Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Course! We do not have a set date for major aerification of our greens, choosing to do maintenance work when business levels are low. The date you played, you should have not experienced any sand on the greens and perhaps you encountered some miscommunication from our team member. If you have any further issues, please feel free to reach out to matt.nagel@hilton.com. Again, thank you for the review and we look forward to your future visits!

We had a great day, nice freindly staff good ammenities. The course was in very good shape for this time of year in Az. (Transition From winter to summer grass.) The greens were in great shape held shots well but rolled fast and true. The course plays fair but challenging with great elevated tee boxes with great views. Try it I don't think you will be disappointed.

We enjoyed the course as a challenge to play.

Staff was excellent! The only improvement that would be nice is either adding pictures of the holes to the score card or upgrade to a GPS system. This course is hilly and many shots are blind landings. We got into the group ahead several times because we couldn't see them on the course. Otherwise, condition was great and it was fun to play an Arizona course with shade trees!

This course starts out fairly easy over first 6 holes. But when you make the turn its all you can handle. Wow!! 10th hole is the signature hole and its easy to see why. High above the fairway on the side of mountain down to fairway. Spectacular!! 16 a par 3 is out in the middle of the peserve. Really tremendous views. Staff was helpful and very friendly. Highly reccomend!!

First 5 holes are flat, open, and easy. Course is shorter, so I played from blue. Holes 6 and one get hilly and tighter, but still fairly easy for a 12 handicapper. Fairways are in great condition. Green speed was about a 6-7. Super friendly staff that was helpful getting started.
