Desert Mountain membership transfer fees are a source of much debate. Every sale of a Desert Mountain Golf Club Membership triggers a $65,000 transfer fee payable to the club. The sale of a home without a membership does not trigger this transfer fee. Only the sale of the membership. The $65,000 fee sounds high but it is comparable to other golf communities in Scottsdale.
Here is a comparison of some of the high end communities in Scottsdale:
Desert Mountain $65,000 membership transfer fee
Desert Highlands $75,000 membership transfer fee
Estancia $30,000 or 20% of membership price (whichever is higher) membership transfer fee
As you can see the Desert Mountain transfer fee is actually less than Desert Highlands. The Desert Highlands Club only has one Jack Nicklaus golf course, while Desert Mountain has 6 Jack Nicklaus golf courses. Each community offers exceptional tennis facilities and multiple amenities, but Desert Mountain also offers six exceptional clubhouses. Each clubhouse has something different to offer its members so they can enjoy a variety of entertainment, dining, and social activities each day.
If you have any questions about Desert Mountain or any other golf club in Scottsdale, feel free to contact me. I would be happy to compare Scottsdale county clubs with you. I specialize in selling homes throughout the private clubs of North Scottsdale including Desert Mountain, Silverleaf, Troon, Estancia and Desert Highlands.
