The Pointe Golf Club at Lookout Mountain Surpasses Expectations for this Reader

By Glenn Marion, Reader Reviewer

PHOENIX - The Lookout Mountain Golf Course is a premiere desert course with great service. It is located at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort off 7th St. I received the type of service I expected from such a nice resort.

The staff took my bags before I even checked-in, at check-in I received a bucket of balls for the practice range and could even help myself to an assortment of fresh fruit if I was hungry. After hitting a few practice balls my name was announced and I headed over to tee off at the first hole.

I knew right away I was going to love playing this course. The well-manicured greens are tough, yet fair, The scenery is beautiful. With the mountain preserve as my backdrop, I knew I would enjoy the day regardless of my short game.

It was a warm day so the cold water already in the cart and frequent visits from the refreshment cart were welcome additions.

I was pleasantly surprised when we were also greeted with freshly-scented cool towels provided by the marshalls. The highlight was the 10th hole.

You tee off high above the greens below, the golf shop later told me the drop off is nearly 10 stories. I truly had a great time at the wonderful course.

I found the staff extremely friendly, the greens in great shape and the rate fair. With all the good things, I figure we can forget about my score.
