DESERT MOUNTAIN HOMES AND GOLF CLUB
DESERT MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY PROFILE
Where in the world will you find a great community that offers six Jack Nicklaus Signature courses? Try Far North Scottsdale. In the mid-80’s, Lyle Andersen and his group looked at 8000 acres of arid grazing land nestled at the base of Apache Peak and envisioned a community surrounding extraordinary golf courses. His vision has come true. In 1987, the Renegade course opened and luxury homes became available at Sunrise, the first village of custom home sites within Desert Mountain. Today, there are 4 other Jack Nicklaus Signature courses within the complex, and a links course was built just outside the back gate and is surrounded by open spaces.
Desert Mountain is a guard-gated, 8,000 acre luxury community located in far North Scottsdale on the border of Carefree and the Tonto National Forest. There are several neighborhoods within Desert Mountain, many of them framing one of the six courses.
Resale homes as well as new custom homes are available at Desert Mountain. Desert Mountain has a wonderful mixture of homes, from attached cottages to large custom homes. The Sonoran area and Apache Cottages offer two to three bedroom attached homes that are wonderful units for the part-time homeowner. They are easy to "lock and leave" as Desert Mountain is a multi-gated community with guarded gates. Each village is distinct in its style, but they all share the wonderful amenities of Desert Mountain. Because Desert Mountain is located so far north, the views from this fabulous community are hard to beat.
