About Desert Forest Golf Club
In 1962, architect Robert “Red” Lawrence carved the course from existing desert landscape, with virtually no soil having been removed or shaped during course construction. The environmentally “all natural” setting remains today the hallmark of the course, with desert characteristics proudly and beautifully displayed for the discerning eye to see and the dedicated golfer to appreciate. From virtually everywhere on the golf course, the Sonoran Desert vistas are breathtaking.

The Desert Forest story is about the game of golf and the bond that forms among golfers. The club was designed around a singular vision; not to serve an existing market for tourists or house hunters, but to create a home for serious golfers willing to travel far off the beaten path. To this day, that spirit endures. It is no coincidence that some of America’s greatest modern golf courses are in beautiful but remote settings. The Club is located at 37207 N. Mule Train Road in Carefree, Arizona.

Desert Forest is an unpretentious club with a big heart. They are passionate about the condition of their golf course, the talent of their staff, and the experiences of their members. The amenities offered are polished and well-suited to the club: a wide range of exceptional golf services; a delightful patio; a very talented chef; a dining room and bar with the best view in the valley. And, one of the most compelling golf courses in America. Really, what else do they need?
