Desert Mountain Club boasts not one, but six Jack Nicklaus-designed courses, one of them being the Geronimo Course. The golf course is the most visually dramatic with a desert-style layout that meanders through intimidating boulders, deep washes, and ravines. The challenge of this course is instantly seen from the first hole, a par-5 with a dramatic elevation drop to a wide fairway. The hole calls for a precise shot in order to properly tackle the shallow green that is well guarded with bunkers. For every hole on Geronimo that carries over a ravine, Nicklaus included a safer route to accommodate the less venturesome golfers.

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.
