DESERT MOUNTAIN GOLF CLUB
COCHISE COURSE

With lush Sonoran Desert stretching out on every side, the 7,019- yard, Cochise Course demands a thoughtful and strategic approach. This challenging course was the host course for the 2012 Charles Schwab Cup Championship, the season-ending event on the Champions Tour, which returned to Cochise in 2014 and 2016. It is also the former site of The Tradition, a major event on the Champions Tour that the Golden Bear won four times when it was held on Cochise. Its signature holes are four of the finest “risk/reward” par fives to be found anywhere. With rolling fairways surrounded by water and dramatic desert rock outcroppings, this magnificent layout provides you with a true test of your skill. Approach shots require precision shot-making and contoured greens require a golfer’s deftest touch. The hallmark of the course is the par-3 seventh hole and par-5 fifteenth hole. The double green for these two holes sits on a picturesque island, approached by two different directions. Jack Nicklaus himself has called Cochise ”one of the most picturesque golf courses in the world.”
