Calling all golf enthusiasts! Are you dreaming of a home in a community that’s literally built around the love of the game? Then a luxury golf home in the Desert Highlands may make your dreams come true.
At the heart of this guard-gated community lies a private, members-owned Jack Nicklaus “Signature” course. Nestled on 850 acres at the foot of Pinnacle Peak, Desert Highlands’ developers intentionally kept the community small so homeowners could form lasting friendships with their fellow golf-loving neighbors. The master planned community also intentionally set aside more than 400 acres to remain pristine and undeveloped, with a focus on the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert.
The result? A green gem in north Scottsdale with highly sought-after homes in a stunning setting. Given the community’s small size — only 560 home sites — it’s easy to understand why homes for sale in Desert Highlands are so desirable. Here, you’ll find luxury homes designed to take full advantage of both the lush greens of the course and the gorgeous desert landscape. Most homes in the Desert Highlands are custom builds, ranging from the $700,000s to multi-million dollar estates.
Desert Highlands is the first Arizona development built around a country club. Its course is also the first to be played by the so-called ultimate foursome, also known as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Tom Watson. Today, the par-72, 18-hole course encompasses more than 7,100 yards of play. For a truly exclusive experience, membership is restricted to Desert Highlands golf home owners only.
Residents can take advantage of an 18 hole putting course, a clubhouse, an extensive fitness center, swimming pools and eateries. Desert Highlands is also home to some of the best tennis courts in Scottsdale; home owners can use the community’s clay, grass and synthetic hardtop courts in the world-class tennis facility.
Desert Highlands’ location in north Scottsdale offers convenient access to the area’s healthcare facilities, such as the world renown Mayo Clinic. It’s also just a short drive to the thriving shopping, dining, entertainment and business districts of Scottsdale and Phoenix.
For families with school-aged children, the community is part of the highly rated Cave Creek Unified School District. Youth can also attend several top tier private and charter schools in the local area.
