Desert Mountain is a private golf community located in North Scottsdale that borders Cave Creek and Tonto National Forest. Located in the high Sonoran Desert, elevation ranges from 2,500 to 4,800 square feet offering slightly cooler temperatures.
The luxurious 8,000-acre golf community of Desert Mountain is based around six Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses. The guard gated community of home sites, custom homes, semi-custom homes and attached cottages/casitas, is set among a collection of villages. Many of the homes line one of the six golf courses, offering panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. There is a wide range of housing options, from a small attached two bedroom “lock and leave” cottage to a large luxurious custom estate home on the mountainside.
Within the community are six clubhouses that offer nine tennis courts (1 grass court, 5 clay courts, and 3 hard courts), a full service spa and a fitness center. The surrounding mountains offer plenty of trails for hiking, biking and riding horses. Since Desert Mountain borders Cave Creek, residents can easily enjoy the many stores, restaurants and art galleries that the quaint town offers. The community is also not far from the many retail stores and restaurants offered at Desert Ridge Marketplace, CityNorth, Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarters.
Carefree Hwy is minutes away and the Loop 101 Freeway is easily accessible. The area is served by the Cave Creek Unified School District.
