The Renegade Course was the first of six courses designed by Jack Nicklaus at Desert Mountain Club. The private club has the distinction of being the only club in the country to boast that many Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses. The Renegade Course is a desert-style, like many of the other golf courses, but it is unique in that there are two flagsticks on every green, which allots more playing options to golfers regarding the course's set-up. Golf Digest even called it the "most versatile course in the world." Popular among locals and visitors, the Renegade Course accommodates players of all skill levels and abilities.

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!

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.
