Set in the North Mountain Preserve, Lookout Mountain Golf Club is the centerpiece of the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, a Spanish Mediterranean oasis spread over the mountainside overlooking Greater Phoenix. Built in 1987 with the PGA Seniors Tour, resort guests and Phoenix residents in mind, Bill Johnston and Forrest Richardson fashioned a layout that both introduced the Sonoran Desert and offered resort-style respite from its harsher elements.
This Golf Digest four-star golf course begins in resort comfort and quickly transitions from palms and gardens to the indigenous saguaros and desert scarp. The challenges mount as the holes wind through mountainous terrain, culminating at No. 10, where hang-time drives must carry to the fairway nearly 200 feet below. Lookout Mountain tests both grit and skill, not unlike the wildest amusement park ride that starts out gentle and builds to the thrill of a double loop, but kind enough to return the player to a traditional finish on even fairways.
