I am curious if anyone has ever golfed at Desert Mountain and can share their experiences with that?  How were the courses?  Was conditioning fantastic?  Was the place packed?  How was the vibe....are people pretty friendly?

DM is amazing!  The courses are all usually in fantastic condition and the greens are some of the fastest and purest I've played.  You get 3-4 clubhouses, 6 courses plus a new short course I believe.  My favorite is Outlaw because its the only one with no homes around it.  Absolutely stunning views in every direction.  The only drawback with having so many clubhouses and courses is you lose having a central clubhouse/location where everyone congregates after their round to hang out and socialize.  Plus since you don't know which course you will be playing each day I see most members take their clubs with them in their cars.  That being said, it is an amazing place and pace of play is usually always quick.   The courses are very challenging- I believe the slope rating from the tips of each course approaches 147-150.  Every meal I've had there was great and the practice facilities are incredible as well.

This is a very good summary. The major complaint, in addition to not having a central meeting spot, is the distance to Scottsdale/Phoenix. DM is not really close to anything which can be good or bad depending on what you are looking for.

Yes, just inside the gates can take 20 min to get to the front gate if you are leaving depending on where you live.  :).

 

Just for clarification purposes- I haven't played DM in a few years but I have a couple of friends that live there.  I don't know anything about a lawsuit.  I'm just going by the 6-8 times I've played there and comments from the members I know.  I personally love the Paradise Valley area but there aren't as many great clubs there compared to North Scottsdale.  We've talked about moving to Scottsdale for many years.  I love it there.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!

    • Cobra 2022 Plans
      Anyone have info on Cobra's plans for the upcoming release season? I know the blades are new and assume the King Tours are sticking around for another year (or two); maybe a Forged Tec and Utility update along with their SGI stuff & woods?
