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

We go there frequently and really enjoy the outside patio for dinner or appetizers. We have enjoyed their great Sunday buffet and nice indoor setting with some excellent food choices. We also enjoyed New Year 2013 with a party of 20 friends. Great food choices from lobster to great shrimp cocktails. They had music in the bar and about half... More

Many elevation changes. Immacuately maintained. If you are single digit try the Championship tees for a real experience. Saw several mule deer during the round. Good Luck.

My wife and I took a golf school package just before Thanksgiving. It was perfect, lessons from Terry Evans and golf on the Dinosaur or Sidewinder courses in the late afternoon - and all part of the package. The facilities were excellent, food good, staff very friendly and the golf courses in excellent condition. The Dinosaur course in particular was... More
