    Geronimo Course at Desert Mountain Golf Club

    "Can't wait to play them all at Desert Mountain"

    The first time playing one of the six Jack Nicklaus courses at Desert Mountain has whet my appetite, making me hungrier for more. Geronimo was difficult but enjoyable from the proper tees. There are lots of danger zones that force you to layup or take on a desert wash or canyon ravine. Don't try to be a superhero. Plot your way around the course carefully. I'm not sure what's more beautiful - the desert scenery climbing up and down the foot of the mountain or the million-dollar homes set well back from the fairway. The most memorable hole actually comes last - a scary par 3 that's essentially an island green. If you don't hit the green or one of the bunkers, you're deep in the desert. more »
