After much anticipation, 90-acre Seven Desert Mountain is now open with a fresh course, a killer clubhouse and around 190 new places to call home. With even just a quick glance at all the goodness this fresh community has to offer, it is easy to see why its members are in seventh heaven.
But of Course
No. 7, which serves as the focal point of Seven, was designed by Bill Brownlee and Wendell Pickett and clocks in at 3,114 yards. The championship 18-hole, par-54 course is designed to embrace the fun, social side of the sport for all ages and skill levels. No. 7 introduces a new concept of an alternative teeing bunker on each hole, known as the “Sandy,” which allows golfers to play 18 holes teeing off from a bunker. This enables players to practice their short-game approach shots from the sand—or just have some fun on course. Plus, from the front tees, golfers can play 14 of the 18 holes with a putter; the average golfer can play all 18 holes with two or three clubs, offering a unique golfing experience.
