DESERT FOREST GOLF CLUB
A club dedicated to preserving a rich history rooted in tradition, simplicity and love of the game. Pure golf.
BEAUTY. CHARACTER. AUTHENTICY.
The course is a true original, designed with respect for the contours of the native ground, and considered to be the first desert-style links course ever built. Red Lawrence’s pioneering approach to the Desert Forest course design has blazed the trail for desert courses for decades.
Immaculate course condition is always maintained and available for play year-round.

Membership at Desert Forest Golf Club is offered by invitation and must be sponsored. What does that mean? It means we embrace new members who want to enjoy camaraderie and fellowship fostered by the game of golf.
We understand that many potential members do not have connections at Desert Forest, and to that end we offer individuals interested in membership, along with their spouses, the assistance of the Admissions Committee to develop relationships with potential sponsors.
