“This course is in fabulous condition thanks to a complete makeover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This course has been great for years but a comprehensive makeover has made it even better. New tees, beautiful lush fairways, soft and deep "real" sand-traps, leading to excellent putting surfaces make what was very good really excellent. New markers on the course make distance to the pin easy.
Desert Canyon is for the low to mid handicapper. It is not a championship course nor is it a course for the beginner or duffer. Every hole is challenging, but not impossible. Set in the magnificent scenery of Fountain Hills, Arizona, this course meanders through stunning desert landscapes. Changes in view, slope, and elevation keep you interested and challenged throughout.
I played last Saturday and Sunday completing both rounds in about 4 hours, about average for courses in this area. The green fees are reasonable making this course a real value.

“Early season golf”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Back nine was being repaired. Played front nine twice. No Marshall's on course to assist slow players. Took almost 6 hours for the round for a course rated at 4 hours 15 minutes. Would look for different course next time.

“Nice Public Course”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Now under repair s only playing the front nine.... They are adding sand traps to the back nine. They could use better yardage markers or add locator flags. Very playable, but not for the advanced player. No refreshment cart on a 100 degree Saturday is crazy and dangerous, you have to drink water or Gatorade, but hard to do without a way to buy on the course.... No vending available either.
