THE Wife and I played here on May 21, 2013. A beautiful, sunny day with temps in the high 70s. We teed off at 2:20 which is 40 minutes before their twilight rate and our fees were less than $60 per person.
The fair ways are spacious and the greens are massive, undulating and quick (but not stupid quick). The front nine is good golf - a few holes spectacular - with a few cut around some housing. No complaints on the front nine. But the back nine is stunning with awesome views of the Columbia River and the mountains around it. The back nine is very much set in a desert setting and just a lot of fun! Overall this course is a must play when you're in the area!!
If you're golfing in the Chelan area then you must also check out Bear Mountain on the south side of Lake Chelan (you'll see the entrance to Bear Mountain Ranch on the west side of #97 Alt). Absolutely superb!! Identical green fees to Desert Canyon and with fantastic views of Lake Chelan and even better golf than Desert Canyon.
