Renegade Golf Facility & the Jim Flick Performance Center

Renegade is one of my favorites. It was designed back in 1987 and allows golfers to choose their own level of play. What makes this golf course special are the two pin placements. The Gold pins are for those golfers looking for a more challenging course. It is not what we would call a “bump and run” course. Once you get close to the green, there is usually a sand bunker or some kind of obstacle in front of the green.

The best part of playing Renegade is setting up the course for how you feel that day. For example as a female golfer, I can choose to play from the Red tee box and go to the White tees OR for a more challenging experience, play the Red tees to the Gold pins Or mix it up again and play the White tee box to the White pins. White to white is designed for the longer ball striker .Renegade also has a fantastic practice facility. Once I was practicing on the putting green and noticed a familiar looking man putting next to me. I was wondering why he was not retrieving his own golf balls and someone was rolling them back to him when he was finished his putting. Not until he looked up did I notice it was none other than Tom Watson, the golf professional with many wins on the PGA tour and now active on the Champions tour. You never know who you will see out here. And speaking of you never know who you might run into , another time, I was playing golf with a few friends and playing behind me was Tom Lehman. I did not notice him until we were almost done, when he causally came up to me and told me that I had a very nice golf swing. Well if that didn’t beat all…. how exciting for an amateur to get such a nice compliment from someone of his stature.Golfing at Renegade or for that matter at any of the golf courses in Desert Mountain is a special treat. I consider myself lucky everyday that I found this community back in 1996 and have the chance to be part of one of the Best Private Country Club Resorts in the country. It has the feel of a RESORT, but is all private.Playing golf at any level or any age is what makes Desert Mountain a special community.
