If you could imagine what a desert course should be, this is it. Vegetation, rolling hills. Very well maintained course. Scenic views at every angle. A lot of Par 3's. Challenging but not over the top.

Course was in fantastic shape as it wound through canyons of homes. At the edge of the superstitious mountains and a relatively easy ride from Scottsdale.

The front nine are challenging enough, but if you play the back nine you better bring a bucket of balls.

The course is my favorite any I have played in my 45 years of golfing. It is in great shape, has incredible elevation changes, and is smack dab in the middle of the Sonoran desert with Saguaro cacti, ocotillo, and mesquite trees. It will challenge every golfer! Be sure to take a club if you hit into the desert to... More

We come to Phoenix every year for a week of golf in the winter and will never miss a chance to play Dinosaur Mountain. The elevation changes are dramatic and the views are spectacular.

Off the plane, onto the course, no time to warm up. Loved the course, great conditions, Elevation changes are magnificent. As sun set the course cools off and the shadows are welcomed. Greens ran true. Most enjoyable of the 4 I played.
