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

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
