When you think of Scottsdale, Arizona, golf is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Ask a Desert Highlands resident about golf, however, and you will find that many think Jack Nicklaus. The Golden Bear designed the course in 1983 and it has been claimed that Desert Highlands has been designed around Nicklaus’ own playing style. That wouldn’t be surprising given the fact that Jack spent two years and twenty visits to the site before completion.
The par 72 golf course measures 7,099 yards from the championship tees, but each hole provides four to seven sets of tees to accommodate varying levels of skills. The course meanders through the natural terrain and can play among the most challenging in Arizona. To this day it continues to be one of the most beautiful, respected and sought-after golf courses to play in the country. The Desert Highlands clubhouse, which has been ranked by Clubhouse Golf as “Third Best in the World,” offers over fifty special events on the calendar in a typical year.
Spread over 850 lush acres of Sonoran desert, Desert Highlands provides an unusually broad spectrum of desert foothills, boulder fields, rock outcroppings, and slashing washes, encompassing rich and dramatic contrasts in topography, combined with an extraordinary range of mature, indigenous desert vegetation. Over 500 of the 560 homesites have been filled with extraordinary custom homes, each staying true to the Desert Highlands aesthetic experience.Search Desert Highlands Homes
