The Renegade Golf Course has received rave reviews since the renovation. The course was originally designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1987. At the grand opening, Nicklaus described the course as the most versatile course in the world. It was at the same time his easiest and most difficult design in one. The course was renovated last year and the design was changed but the versatility of the course remains.
Renegade’s new design has six holes with one large green, 11 holes with 2 greens and one hole with 3 greens. For example, the 10th hole can play as a par 4 or 5. The 12th hole can be played as a par 3 or 4. Either pin placement can be played, providing a player with endless distance options. The course plays from 4,500 yards to 8,000 yards depending on personal preference.
The renovation at Renegade included a new state of the art drainage and irrigation system. The new drainage system successfully dealt with this year’s major monsoon rain storms. The water pooling affected play for only a few hours, rather than a few days. The year round cool season bent grass that was installed uses less water to maintain and adds days of play to the course. Playing conditions have never been better for Desert Mountain members.
