Two courses here at Gold Canyon, but it's a ways from Phoenix, east on 60 past Apache Junction. But once you here, it's a great golf experience. A true desert course in the high Sonoran desert, the Dinosaur Mountain is the better course, and more expensive. It has great elevation changes, elevated tee boxes, routed through the upper reaches of Dinosaur Mountain with views of the Superstition Mountains. Both courses were designed by Ken Kavanaugh, Greg Nash, Stuart Penge, Dinosaur plays to 6653 yards and 143 slope from the tips, it's a tough course. It was easily the favorite of the group. A very challenging and scenic course. Everyone enjoyed the scenery and the conditions of the course. The Sidewinder is routed on the same property but below Dinosaur Mountain, and plays through natural arroyos and dry creek beds, with native grasses and vegetation bordering the fairways. It's named Sidewinder for a reason as it layout twists and turns the desert landscape. It plays to 6533 yards, 132 slope from the tips, nothing real special, skip it to play Dinosaur. Both very well conditioned, excellent guest service, and worth the trip out east of town.
