The Mountain View Course

The Mountain View course at Desert Willow Golf Resort was designed to be a transition between the more challenging, tournament-quality Firecliff course and the traditional course of fence to fence turfgrass, flowers and flowing water.  Mountain View was intended to have each of these characteristics, but with its own distinct personality.
