Outlaw Course at Desert Mountain Golf Club
The Outlaw Course is one of six Jack Nicklaus Signature courses at the Desert Mountain Club. This private club is the only club in the country to boast that many Nicklaus-designed courses. Unlike the other golf courses, the Outlaw Course follows the Scottish-links tradition as opposed to the desert-style that characterizes the other courses. Built as the sixth and final course, the Outlaw Course borders the Tonto National Forest, providing a landscape of rolling hills, native washes, and stately trees that Nicklaus utilized in his design. The golf course also offers scenic views of Pinnacle Peak, the McDowell Mountains, and Four Peaks.

Having played many top courses in the country both public and private, I can without hesitation state that this course is a real gem. This is a Nicklaus design, so you will have the challenging bunkering and elevated greens at times. This course is not for the faint of heart. You will be tested with forced carries and difficult bunkering and greens. If you play the appropriate tees, that would be helpful. The vistas, course condition and difficulty make this an experience to remember if you are lucky enough to have a member invite you.
Outlaw at Desert Mountain
This is the Last course Jack Nicklaus has designed at Desert Mountain. Outlaw was opened in 2003 and is a links design. Much of the course has views of the Tonto National Forest, and Four Peaks, The Mcdowell Mountains and Pinnacle peak can be see from this high terrain track. The fairways are for the most part forgiving but the greens and areas around them make for a real short game test. You will use every club in your bag and every type of shot here. Club selection is critical on the teeing ground. Outlaw is a truly a very fun and challenging course to play especially on the first visit.
An Absolute Delight
This course was fantasic. Immaculate conditions and breathtaking views. It was a delight to play here. Even though I didn't play well, the course was so nice it made it worth it. The clubhouse also had fantastic Southwestern food and a great outdoor patio. A great place to bring the family as well!
Wow! Golf Heaven on earth.
Played fast. Course was immaculate. Some of cart paths were dangerously steep. Felt like cart would tip end over end. For a course of this caliber, I felt design of cart path on one particular hole could have been safer. Other than that, perfect. Greens very fast 11+. Great challange. Wide fairways. Manageable for any handicap. I'm 7 and shot 87 and was thrilled.
