Great views, well maintained, challenging - but fun. Good value in summer

I played with a friend and my father-in-law in July. We paid approx. $45 for the round and $30 to rent clubs. It's a nice value for the quality of this course. They do a great... read more

I played with a friend and my father-in-law in July. We paid approx. $45 for the round and $30 to rent clubs. It's a nice value for the quality of this course. They do a great job of maintaining it during the hot summer. The staff was very attentive and helpful. I like to golf, but am not particulary good.... More

I think you will be very impressed with this venue. Great golf, one of the best in the valley. Great food as well. Real nice place to kick back and watch the sun go down.

Dinosaur Mountain is the best course, 1-18, of any other public course in Arizona in my opinion. I'm talking about the course itself - not any of the other ancillary amenities - although, they offer plenty of those and do well in those categories, too. If you want a truly unforgettable round, play Dinosaur Mountain. This is true desert golf... More

Golf course is both beautiful and challenging. If playing in the summer, earlier tee times are recommended as it can get very hot in the P.M.

This course is about 45 min SE of scottsdale. They offer a great promotion during offseason so we tried it. The pro shop staff couldn't have been more accomodating. We had to rent clubs and they provided us with Taylor made clubs. The course was beautiful, very scenic and golfer friendly. Women's tees were situated perfectly making for a close... More

What an amazing place!!! We came to Arizona for a 6-round trip. We played Southern Dunes, Quintero, Gold Canyon (both courses) and We-Ko-Pa (both courses). At the end of the day, many members of our group thought that Dinosaur was the single best golf course we played on the entire trip, and every single member agreed that it was by... More

Played this course first week of April and I must say WOW. Amazing course with amazing views. It is very pricey to play but I personally think its worth it. Course is very well kept, GPS Carts are great. The course is tough with some fast greens and lots of elevation changes. The views are something else, you pretty much... More

Bring you A game and have fun. Lots of elevation changes, great views, scenic holes and tough putts. Perfect course as far as I am concerned. Bring your camera.

After 8 days of the premium courses in Scottsdale we chose to play Dinosaur Mountain for 2 reasons: 1. Some golfers we spoke to said how good it was, mentioning the views too. 2. The course name. Knowing nothing about the course, we thought it was a slight risk having played premium well-known courses all week but far from being... More

I played in the rain with the temps at 40 degrees wearing shorts and a cotton hoodie. I was freezing, drenched and would do it again in a heartbeat. One of those rare winter days where parts of phoenix got snow!!!!! Amazing, amazing views and very well maintained. I am not a great golfer so found the course challenging but... More
