Desmond Muirhead

Designed over 100 golf courses around the world and was named by Golf World as “the most innovative golf course architect of the last 100 years.”

Mr. Muirhead was an iconoclast who bucked golf world conventions. One year before his notorious golf course development partnership began with Jack Nicklaus, he designed our championship golf course across a hundred acres of rolling manicured greens and meandering around a shapely, twenty-five-acre lake – a desert favorite since 1972. Desmond’s parkland playground is a lush island floating in a sea of desert sand.
