Desert Highlands is a 
private, golf course community located amidst 850 acres of lush Sonoran landscape at the base of PinnaclePeak.  Comprised of 560 custom homesites, this highly desired community first opened its gates in 1983 and offered a new concept in exceptional desert living.  It set the new standard for community amenities and environmentally harmonious architecture; and its Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions became the model for most other exclusive, gated communities throughout the Southwest.
 
The private 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course immediately received multiple awards and was the site of the first two Skins Games with Jack Nicholas, Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson and Gary Player in 1983 and 1984.  More recently it has received accolades such as being recognized as one of the “Best Private Courses in the US” by Golf Digest Magazine in 2000 and 2002; ranked among “The Best Courses in Arizona” by Golf Digest every year from 2003 to 2009; and selected as one of “America’s Top 100 Golf Communities” by Travel and Leisure Golf in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
