The Course

For a golfer, there is no better experience than a fabulous golf course in a spectacular setting.  Desert Hills, a David Bennett design, offers panoramic views of the majestic Santa Rita Mountains and beautiful Madera Canyon.  Tree-lined fairways provide ample shade from the desert sun for walkers and riders.  The course has four choices of tees enabling golfers of all skill levels to equally enjoy the course.

We are proud of our club and impeccable course conditions.

Course History

Fairfield Green Valley, Inc. built and launched Desert Hills Golf Club in January 1979.  The club was initially opened to the public but due to significant popularity, mostly from local residents, pace of play delays and restricted tee times resulted.   In 1982, the club was gradually purchased by its members over a two year period.  Since 1984 our golf club has been wholly member owned and operated.
