Desert Mountain to introduce 7th course

Desert Mountain Club to Unveil No. 7 at Desert Mountain™ Golf Course, clubhouse and homes in spring 2019

Innovative Par-54 Course Design Will Appeal to Golfers of All Skill Levels

Scottsdale, Ariz. (Feb. 6, 2019) Desert Mountain Club will unveil its seventh golf course, No. 7 at Desert Mountain™ course and clubhouse this spring, enhancing the exciting golf lifestyle experience in Arizona’s high desert.

This par-54 course is one of only two private, par-54-rated courses in the United States and will serve as the focal point for the exclusive Seven Desert Mountain™ community.

The course is designed by Bill Brownlee of M3 Companies and Wendell Pickett of Greey|Pickett, both of whom are Desert Mountain Club members. No. 7 at Desert Mountain has been created to be inclusive and challenging for golfers of all skill levels. The remarkable course will feature extensive fairways, ample greens, as well as a lighted putting green. This duo also collaborated on the critically-acclaimed “Li’l Wick” nine-hole short game course at Wickenburg Ranch located in Wickenburg, Arizona.

“The concepts behind No. 7 at Desert Mountain are an extension of Desert Mountain’s overall vision,” said Desert Mountain Club CEO Damon DiOrio. “Not only does No. 7 maintain the high standards of golf we embrace throughout Desert Mountain, it provides even more experiences enabling golfers to reimagine how they play the sport.”

Beyond the 18-hole course, No. 7 will feature a sleek, modern clubhouse that will serve as a central, family-centric gathering space with an indoor-outdoor gastropub, state-of-the-art sound system, and two bocce ball courts. Set against a magnificent high desert backdrop with expansive, collapsible glass walls, the clubhouse will literally bring the outdoors in. The facility will be ideal for year-round enjoyment and offers heated patio floors, indoor and outdoor bars, several fire pits and fireplaces.

The 90-acre enclave, which will have its own private entrance just west of the existing main gate on Cave Creek Road, will also include up to 190 custom homes designed by Arizona’s leading custom home builders Cullum Homes, Camelot Homes and Family Development.

With vastly unique product opportunities, including custom, semi-custom and condominium residences, these modern and luxurious homes will offer breathtaking views of the greater Phoenix Valley and surrounding mountains and valleys. All but three of the homes will sit directly on the golf course. The homes range in size from 2,300 to 6,500+ square feet and will be priced from $1 million to $3+ million.

Homeowners at Seven will become members of Desert Mountain Club as part of their property purchase. Options include equity lifestyle or equity golf membership at Desert Mountain Club, gaining access to its world-class amenities including its newly renovated Sonoran Spa and Fitness Center, tennis complex, pickleball courts, miles of private hiking and biking trails, six additional private golf courses, distinctive clubhouses and restaurants. An additional golf membership dedicated primarily to No.7 at Desert Mountain Club is also available.
