The Course

Desert Forest Golf Club - Preserving Rich History Rooted in Tradition, Simplicity, and the Love of the Game.
Everything is in Play

Much like the links courses in the United Kingdom, everything is in play. No out of bounds markers, no water hazards, and no fairway bunkers. The natural terrain of the land and adjoining desert is all you need!

Designed for Walking Golfers

For many, the best feature of Desert Forest is its welcome for walking golfers. The course is designed to be walked, and doing so is a rare joy in Arizona. It is a treasured part of the Desert Forest experience.

"Congratulations to Desert Forest on an outstanding renovation project. For many years, Desert Forest has been one of my favorite golf courses, and one I consider among the most interesting in America. As good as it was, the work that the club officials, members and Dave Zinkand have done has made that great golf course even better." Bill Coore, in a letter to the Desert Forest Board of Directors
"Desert Forest is an American golf course design landmark. Working with the natural rolls in the desert landscape, Lawrence gracefully set out a demonically simple design, meticulously fitting holes in between the harsher elements." MIKE STACHURA, GOLF DIGEST: CLASSIC AMERICAN COURSES
