Scottsdale, Ariz. – Desert Mountain, one of the most luxurious private golf course communities in the world, has retained Sage Golf Group Worldwide as a consultant for the communities six upscale golf courses designed by golf great Jack Nicklaus.
Sage Golf Group Worldwide was selected by the Desert Mountain Members Advisory Board as a consultant to perform a thorough review and analysis of the six Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses that make up the Desert Mountain Golf Club.
The club’s membership is in the process of purchasing the club from the current owners, Desert Mountain Properties, and requires a complete analysis of current and future agronomy and infrastructure needs for the six golf courses. The club’s membership felt that Sage’s background and experience with world class golf facilities would be a perfect fit for Desert Mountain Golf Club’s six Courses.
