Jack Nicklaus

Described by Jack Nicklaus as “the strong looking course,” Geronimo is perhaps the most visually intimidating of the six courses at Desert Mountain. At 7,420 yards from the back tees, it winds its way through dramatic boulders, deep washes, ravines and lush desert showcasing large elevation changes balanced by stunning plateaus. The drama of Geronimo is evident from the first hole, a stunning 570-yard par five with a large elevation drop to a broad fairway. The hole requires a well-struck second shot to set up the proper position to attack this shallow, well bunkered green. While some of the front nine holes might deceptively lead you to believe it is a gentle course, the back nine will surely change that impression. The last hole is a 160-yard, par 3 that requires an exacting shot over a canyon to a two-tiered green between sand bunkers. For every carry over a deep ravine, designer Nicklaus provides a safe route for those less daring shot makers.

This course does not suffer fools lightly. Strongest of the upper 3 courses at Desert Mountain.
