Desert Canyon Golf Club
Best course of the trip
We played 6 courses over our trip and this was our favorite. The course layout was great with just enough challenge to keep it interesting. Well maintained and staffed. Would highly recommend it.

Great views, lots of hole variety and elevation change yet very fair. Head Pro Jason was very friendly and gracious! One of the best values for your dollar.

Challenging course with breathtaking views
Pristine course in the middle of the mountains with many elevation changes! Many elevated tee shots which may make the heart skip a beat or two. Course was challenging for me as tee shots are critical. Pro shop was great as was the hotdog stand at #10. Holes #1 and #16 will always be in my mind!
I recommend taking the drive to Fountain Hills, we drove from Scottsdale and it was a breeze. We flew in as a threesome from Chicago and have never seen a course like this by us. I strongly recommend for anyone looking for a challenging course in a very peaceful surrounding paired with amazing tee boxes and views! Challenging for sure, but that's why I play!
Go down to All American Bar after the round and watch the fountain, on the hour every hour for you out-of-towners like me!

You have other choices
My wife and I decided that we would try this course despite the fact that it was over 45 miles from our home in the east Valley, and then again it was my birthday and we wanted to visit Fort McDowell afterwards. Overall the course is fairly good with the back nine a lot better than the front, the greens rolled well and the scenery was excellent, some of the homeowners are not too happy with errant golf balls, so why buy on a golf course? Having said that we had a 1252 tee time and arrived at 1225 only be to told that we were next on the tee box, not a lot of time for practicing, when we arrived at the tee we were paired up with Jim and Jimmy, the latter being a 7 , yes a seven year old, what was the proshop thinking? For the next 14 holes of absolute misery with this father/son team continuously talking, the son actually pacing his every putt and if I ever hear the name "Jimmy" again it will be too soon. We did keep up with the foursome in front of us despite the 10 plus hits/putts on each hole but the precocious 7 year old just kept talking, even though he thought he was out of ear shot of my naturally gifted exceptional hearing wife. My thoughts, after the fact, was to go back to the proshop and get a different tee time, but with the late afternoon sun it might have been difficult to finish the 18 holes, should have done that and avoided the headache.
I'm all for junior golf, in fact my club back in Calgary, Bearspaw CC has one of the best junior programs in the City, but why should full fee paying golfers have to play, on prime time, in the weekend with a 7 year old?
We have lots of choices in the Valley and this will not be one of them, especially if that is the way they deal with their guests.
