Desert Mountain

Defining the Boundaries 

Desert Mountain is located in the high Sonoran Desert, bordering Tonto National Forest Carefree and North Cave Creek Road. The area is mainly a private golf community that offers a quieter and rural lifestyle with beautiful mountain and desert views. The temperature is slightly cooler because elevation ranges between 2,500 to 4,800 feet.  

Celebrity Signature Golf Courses

There are six Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses that comprise the luxurious 8,000-acre golf community of Desert Mountain.  Within the guard-gated community are a full-service spa, fitness center and six clubhouses that have nine tennis courts.  Many of the homes line one of the six golf courses and overlook the well-maintained greenery.  There is a wide range of housing options ranging from small attached two bedrooms “lock and leave” cottages, detached single family homes, condominiums, semi-custom homes and large luxurious custom estates that sit on the mountainside.

Beyond the Golf Course

The golf is as good as it gets but this North Scottsdale upscale community has more to offer.  A world-class combination of social and recreational facilities, events, and the Sonoran Fitness and Spa Center fully equipped and staffed with the latest in training equipment, personal training, exercise classes, and leisure amenities. The tennis center at Desert Mountain is complete with not only hard-surface courts but also clay and grass courts. The magnificent stadium grass court is believed to be the only one of its kind in Arizona.
