The master-planned community of Desert Mountain was established in 1986 by Taliesin Associated Architects, a company founded by world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright believed architecture should be rooted in environmentally-conscious practices, so every development in Desert Mountain respects the area’s surrounding desert.
There are 35 “villages” scattered across the 8,000 acre Desert Mountain community. Desert Mountain properties suit every lifestyle as the community has everything from villas and town homes to luxury estates and custom home sites.
The private club at Desert Mountain has 6 Championship Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses – it is the only golf course in the world to have this incredible resource. To support each of these courses, Desert Mountain has built 5 separate clubhouses that offer both formal and casual dining. Golfers at Desert Mountain should take advantage of the course’s Performance Center, a state-of-the-art indoor-outdoor teaching and practice facility. Desert Mountain’s 3 golf pros on staff can also help you with any golf-related inquiries. Desert Mountain is home to the PGA Schwab Cup, an event that attracts professional golfers from all over the world. Desert Mountain members also have access to pools, spas, fitness facilities and 9 hard clay and grass tennis courts.
School-aged children within the Desert Mountain community generally attend these schools in the Cave Creek Unified School District: Black Mountain Elementary School, Sonoran Trails Middle Schools and Cactus Shadows High School.
