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.

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.

Highly Recommend

Course is in great shape just coming out of overseed. Greens are a little slow as expected but overall the course is in awesome shape. Played two days in a row and both rounds completed in less than 3 1/2 hours.

Troon Course Quality

Went the very first day after over seed. Gotta say, this course was absolutely stunning. The pace of play was slow, obviously, as were the greens. For being freshly over seeded, the greens actually ran much faster than many other courses. The views and elevations were shocking. I play Quintero quite often so I can appreciate some good golf views when I see them. Practice facility is kind of a joke, though. Their driving range is only about 220 yards deep which meant no driver or 3 wood practice for me. All in all, very lovely course. Not sure I would pay $90+ to play here again. $60-$70 is more the range, in my opinion. Still, very impressed with my round.

I played Lookout Mtn yesterday (a day before overseeding) and was pleasantly surprised on how good the conditions were the day before overseeding. The staff is always great but I think the course is going to be in amazing shape after overseed this year!
