Desert Mountain is known as one of the most exclusive golf communities in Scottsdale and is ranked as one of the top 10 private golf and recreational communities in the nation. They have the world’s largest grouping of private, Jack Nicklaus-designed Signature Golf Courses, but also do a lot to cater to players of all skill levels.
The state-of-the-art Jim Flick Golf Performance Center is one of the newest ways they make their courses more accessible to all skill levels. It’s an incredible 6,500 square-foot facility loaded up with $1.6 million worth of the most innovative technology in the industry.
PGA pros use the latest and greatest technology to offer a well-rounded approach to teaching people how to play golf or improve their game by encompassing fitness, technique and mental performance strategies in their lessons.
Some highlights of the center’s innovative technology include:
- Gesture recognition to provide real-time lessons
- A Science of Motion Balance lab and Science and Motion putt lab to work on kinesiology and form
- 3-D Doppler monitors to measure ball flight and golf club information
- An AMM 3-D sensor, often referred to as the “MRI of a golf swing.”
The staff here work in concert with this fascinating technology and the pro shop to custom fit clubs and putters to a player’s specific golf swing. It doesn’t get much more personal than that!
Along with the six signature courses, which have Southwest-themed names, and the performance center, golfers can also take advantage of the superb practice facilities. These include four practice ranges and several pitching, chipping, putting, and bunker areas.
Sounds like a great time to check out the Desert Mountain master-planned community, doesn’t it? Since its inception, it’s been a top choice for Arizona golf homes and its amenities have made it attractive to those seeking a carefree Southwestern lifestyle combined with a good golf game, other outdoor activities, and luxury in the high Sonoran desert.
Desert Mountain also hosts tournaments like the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, which is slated for Nov. 2-8 on the Cochise course (stay tuned for more details on that event as it gets closer).
