“Interesting Course with tough finish”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Played in late June and thoroughly enjoyed the course as a first timer. Read lots of reviews that made the course sound overly difficult which it is not. Course was in very good shape and I was lucky to play with some locals who were somewhat helpful in navigating the course. The front nine had a good mix of easy and tough holes with a couple of blind shots. The back nine is more difficult as you climb uphill out of the canyon and face the Wicked Six for the finish. If you play the right tees, you should have an enjoyable day. I do agree that it would be a tough test for a high handicapper.

I'll be back !

“A Favorite in Phoenix Area”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

We've played SunRidge Canyon several years in a row now and have not been disappointed, except with our scores! It's a tough course where you have to think and plan your shots - can't just swing away. The scenery is magnificent and we rarely saw another group. Will definitely return.

“Decent layout but a bit trick”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Course is very picturesque particularly the back 9 returning up the canyon. However some of the holes require layups to avoid cross hazards which are not easily ascertained if playing for the first time. A bit pricey at 150 dlrsd for the condition of the course -- bunkers. We Ko Pah is a far better experience

Reviewed March 16, 2014

Played this course in the last week of February in terrific weather. Was a bit disappointed with the small range as we had to wait to warm up. We got to the tee late as we were told by the starter to wait as he was a bit confused. The layout was OK for the most part although it is within many homes and lacks a bit of the open desert look. The wicked six are difficult but mostly because of poorly designed holes. EX: the par 5 16th-533yds played into the wind and the last 175 yds are uphill. From 60 yds out in the middle of the fairway I could not see the green- not a good design.
The 18th green is similar as it is tough to see the green. The ball would sit down in many of the fairways and the greens were thin and slow. The 2 We-ko-pa courses were far better for the value. Not enough value for the cost.

“Great course, good price”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

At a time when similar courses are 185 - 225 I found this place to be excellent value (paid 125 for green fee, cart, and range balls) and an excellent course that ranges far and wide up and down the hill. Great views, multiple tee boxes, not busy when I went (Mon morning), and very playable.
