Outlaw Golf Course at Desert Mountain
Jack Nicklaus designed the Outlaw course to be “the way golf was meant to be”. There are no homes on the course. Outlaw provides a unique golf experience.
This is the newest of the six Desert Mountain courses. The Outlaw course opened in 2003 to rave reviews for its traditional Scottish links style. Nicklaus has said he was determined to “take what nature gave us and try to enhance it”. It was designed around the desert landscape with gentle rolling hills, washes and spectacular views. Members are encouraged to walk the course and play the way the game was meant to be.
Outlaw is the sixth and final course at Desert Mountain. It is located on a 176-acre site adjacent to the Tonto National Forest. Jack Nicklaus took advantage of the many subtle terrain features. Nicklaus’ goal was “to take what nature gave us and try to enhance it”. Different from the style of the other five Nicklaus layouts at Desert Mountain, Outlaw plays more in the tradition of a Scottish links course. Bring your ground game, as this course asks you to hit a variety of high, low and bump-and-run shots. And as a backdrop, Outlaw provides striking views of Pinnacle Peak, the McDowell Mountains and Four Peaks.
