Desert Highlands | Scottsdale

Located on 850 acres of Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale’s Desert Highlands comprises 560 home sites among gorgeous natural surroundings and with plenty of leisure-time pursuits to offer its residents. Near the towering rock formation known as Clubhouse Rock, the community clubhouse provides members with top-notch dining, a fitness facility complete with an exercise class schedule, a community pool and a dramatic 18-hole, par-72 golf course (there’s even a putting course, to boot). deserthighlandsscottsdale.com.

What’s New: Desert Highlands recently enhanced its Racquet Club viewing from both the grass court and clay court areas. The result is less obstructed with views of both sets of courts, especially during season matches. The courts even lured Australian tennis pro Nick Kyrgios who said the courts were the finest he’d ever played on—including Wimbledon.
