Designed by Jack Nicklaus to appeal to golfers with traditional sensibilities, Apache is a 7,211-yard gentle par-72 course. Moderate, rolling fairways, ample greens with subtle, grassy catch areas and deceptively sloping putting surfaces will provide you with a relaxed round of golf. Apache was designed as a links-style course that winds gracefully through gentle desert terrain. The challenges of this course are the length and elevation changes. Large, lush greens appear as extensions of the fairways. Many members say it is important to master uphill or downhill shots. The eighteenth hole features two separate greens with the more difficult green set into a hillside bordered by an unforgiving wash known for its appetite for golf balls. So it’s not surprising that Apache is best known for its “disappearing green.” Built in the old Scottish tradition, the entire putting surface is not visible. It is a challenging, yet playable course for golfers of all skill levels.
