What a great course! Did 18 in 3.5 hrs. No waiting and pace of play was excellent. Fun and varied holes. Beautiful scenery and greens were as they should be. We got a hot deal on GN.COM . If you have the chance, play this course.

Scottsdale summer golf
I played Desert Canyon around 1030 on 7/17. GN rate was $35 including range balls. I thought it was a little high but the course conditions made up for it.
I haven't played here in about 5 years and was pleasantly surprised at how well the course looked. The course wasn't in winter conditions but was definitely better taken care of than I can remember in the summers I played.
The course was empty mostly due to the high heat and we were able to get around in about 3.5 hours without setting any speed records.
Tee boxes were mostly good with a couple of the elevated boxes not level. Fairways were in awesome shape with plenty of grass. The greens were a little inconsistent with speed and was hard to get a handle on them. Bunkers were all in good shape with plenty of nice sand.
The course is not overly long but it does have a couple of long, difficult, and uphill holes on the back nine that can be frustrating. Thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, and eighteen are all uphill with 15 and 18 being a par 4, 13 a par 3, and 14 a par 5. Par is like a birdie and bogey is like a par on these holes. The 16th hole is a fun downhill par 3 with a great view of the surrounding area.
Overall the course is fun and challenging without beating you up too bad. The course is a good summer play if they keep the conditions up the way they were yesterday. The views around the course are beautiful looking over the desert and seeing 4 Peaks and Fountain Hills.

Love the layout but greens this time were no good.
Second time playing this course the greens were inconsistence but everything else was ok.

better than ever
It's been a little over a year since I played this course. I don't know what changed but this course went from good to excellent. Greens, fairways and tee boxes all in great shape. That's hard to do in Arizona in the summer. Staff is very helpful. I can't wait to play there again.

Great Value, fun course to play, lighting fast greens
Great Value, fun course to play, lighting fast greens, interesting shots, lots of up-hill shots to the greens, and a 100 foot drop to the 16 green.
