Desert Highlands is located north of Scottsdale, Arizona in the Sonoran Desert. This community was the first private residential community built around a country club. It became the prototype for many developments that followed. Because water was essential for planning both the residential area and the golf course, developers were made to demonstrate their ability to obtain adequate water supply before they could proceed. As they proceeded there were plans put into motion to protect the site, saving many natural plants and dozing only areas needed for development.
