There's two courses at Gold Canyon, 45 minutes east of Phoenix, east on 60 past Apache Junction. They're both true desert layouts in the high Sonoran desert designed by Ken Kavanaugh, Greg Nash, and Stuart Penge.
The Dinosaur has significant elevation changes with elevated tee boxes routed through the upper reaches of Dinosaur Mountain and views of the Superstition Mountains. It plays to 6,653 yards, 71.5/144, course/slope ratings from the tips with four shorter tees.
The Sidewinder is routed on the same property but below Dinosaur Mountain through natural arroyos and dry creek beds with native grasses and vegetation bordering the fairways. It's named Sidewinder for a reason as it twists and turns the desert landscape. It plays to 6,533 yards, 71.4/133, course/slope from the tips.
