The Chiricahua Course at Desert Mountain Club is one of six Jack Nicklaus Signature courses at the club, which is the only club to offer that many courses designed by Nicklaus. Like most of the other courses, the Chiricahua Course has a typical desert-style layout with natural desert landscaping around the fairways and greens. Although the fairways are generous, the large and undulating greens require a deft touch. The distinguishing features of this golf course are the dramatic elevation changes that range from 2,800 feet to over 3,600 feet. At such heights, the course guarantees spectacular views from almost every tee.

Desert Golf at its Best

This is an outstanding golf course. As a mid-teens handicapper, I enjoyed the wide fairways and generously sized greens, which were rolled to perfection. Lots of elevated tee boxes, beautiful scenery, and a fabulous 9th hole to boot. Plenty of length for long hitters from the tips, and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. $210 for the round (guest rate) is a bit steep, but the round is memorable.
