Desert Highlands Golf Club
The Jack Nicklaus signature golf course that weaves its way through the community is the main focal point of Desert Highlands Scottsdale. One of the most striking features of the course is the liberal use of the existing topography and landscape in its design. In many places, it seems as though the course was gently draped over the surface of the desert, with the natural rock formations and plants resting right against the fairways. When Jack Nicklaus first designed the course, he chose to limit the use of turf in order to establish this effect. The “target golf” concept that resulted is now one of the definitive traits of desert golf in North Scottsdale.
The Desert Highlands golf course and clubhouse can only be accessed by residents of the community, with membership tied directly to homeownership. The clubhouse is a 30,000 square-foot structure designed to transition seamlessly into the boulders surrounding it. Clubhouse amenities include locker rooms as well as both casual and fine dining that can be enjoyed either indoors or out on the elegant terrace. The clubhouse also offers a full-service bar and poolside dining. Sitting opposite the clubhouse is the 7,000-square-foot fitness and spa facility with a 77,000-gallon swimming pool. Extensively equipped with over 30 workout stations, the fitness center fosters active and healthy lifestyles for all members, including golfers and non-golfers.
Desert Highlands also boasts a comprehensive tennis program and a total of 13 tennis courts scattered throughout the community. The main tennis complex is located in the southwest corner of the development and includes a Tennis Pro Shop, locker rooms, and a players’ lounge.
