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.

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.

mikemag73,

Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Course. It appears that we did not exceed your expectations in regards to the course conditions and failing to communicate our rider policy. As we are in our busiest month of the year, we use every single golf cart in our fleet, thus if we have non-golfers riding along, they are taking a cart that a golfer could be using. We apologize if the fee you were charged seemed too high. We welcome any additional feedback about your experience so we can better enhance our overall operation. Please feel free to email matt.nagel@hilton.com with any further feedback.
