McDowell Mountain Golf Club
McDowell Mountain Golf Club (formerly known as Sanctuary Golf Course) provides an eco-friendly option in Scottsdale - a pretty setting, too, on the McDowell Mountains' western slope. The golf course was designed by the architect Randy Heckenkemper, who turned what had been the Bureau of Reclamation's storm-water-retention area into a top Scottsdale golf course, with 6,624-yards of par-71 golf laid out over what truly tries to be a sanctuary for the indigenous flora and fauna.
McDowell Mountain Golf Club's signature hole is the 18th, a 516-yard par 5 that allows you finish your round of golf in risk-reward style, with an eagle or birdie practically begging to be attempted - though it might be just as easy to double-bogey. A bunker on the right guards a skinny landing area, while a wicked wash awaits on the left, but, hit that drive right, and you might just make the green in two.
After your round of golf on the golf course, head back to the restaurant, where you can take your breakfast or lunch daily in the dining room or on the patio - and take in vistas of the golf course and Camelback Mountain.

Great day at McDowell Mountsin course
Very nice conditions and love the seasonal pricing.
Golf was great course very nice and would book again however twice we were seated for restaurant but not waited on after seating and left both times without a meal despite being told they would be right with us which was very disappointing
Unmarshalled and a 4.45 min round
every hole on the back nine, as we pulled up to the tee box, the group in front of us was still on the tee. It was not their fault, it was backed up. However we could see that two holes ahead of us, that group was at least a hole behind.
Course for mid April is not in good shape, the driving range was terrible, no grass, the putting green was the worst putting green I've seen; poor layout, dried out grass.
I’ve played her several times .Phil Michelsen would not be happy with the course condition particularly the greens. They have some sort of blight or insect damage.
We finished at 6:00 pm and went in to have a sandwich . Grill was closed down.
This place has really deteriorated.
The course is in great shape, challenging in the best possible ways, and very friendly staff. Beautiful views too!
Played early joining a twosome (maybe 8th group off). Pace of play was awful for that early. Course was in great shape, tees, fairways and greens very green and healthy. Greens rolled great. Not the most difficult course but very enjoyable except for the pace of play.
