First golf game of 2019. Met some friends here for a game. The scenery was amazing the course was in good shape. I was disappointed at the greens. Flat and straight which to me equals boring

once is enough

We drove from Chandler on a cool drizzly day. With limited time in Arizona we were not going to admit defeat to the weather when we had heard good things about Gold Canyon. Staff informed us of only three other golfers on the courses, split between the two. We didn't feel it unreasonable to play Dinosaur instead of Sidewinder. The staff at the pro shop said it would be no problem if we caughed up the extra money for the green fees and were firm about it. Fair enough.We will play Ocotillo regularly instead.They make you feel valued and the golf is great.

Nice Course Beautiful Setting

The course is in full view of the Superstition Mountains and offer several challenging holes along with a nice golf shop and great restaurant. Dinosaur course is next to Sidewinder and offers similar views and is a bit more challenging.

quite scenic

We found sidewinder a little easier than Dinosaur mountain, great views and the course was in good shape for August, and reasonably priced as well. We will definitely be playing it again with some friends next time.

Great day of golf

Very pretty desert course. First 5-6 holes are very pretty - most of the rest have houses near by. Pretty forgiving even if you miss the fairway or approach shots. Beautiful day in the low 70’s. Reasonable price for Phoenix in March.

This is another great course at gold canyon resort. Course for this time of year was in great shape the scenery is only second to the dinosaur course. Again the people at the course and resort are most welcoming. We had a great 3 day stay

Great golf course -- service a bit low
May 2017 • Couples
No one can ever say that the Sidewinder course at Gold Canyon Golf Resort and Spa isn't a fun, well kept, beautiful course to play. It isn't as spectacular as the Dinosaur course but still one of the best around. However, when leaving the club house I asked the course had cart service and was assured it did. We still had 2 quarts of water each and a pint of coconut water. The course had no water stations, except at the turn. When making the turn and refilling our water, we asked if there truly was cart service. We were told there was and were assured by the starter that he would make sure she came out during our second 9 holes. We never saw her and were out of water before finishing the 9 holes. It is apparent that they were using 1 drink cart to serve 36 holes. Not sufficient and dangerous in May heat since we could find no other water stations on the course. So, stock up on water because service is not what it should be. I would review the Bar & Grill, separately but it doesn't pull up on Trip Advisor. The portions were good but a bit tasteless, especially the panini bread!

A solid course - nothing special
May 2017 • Friends
I'd hoped for more views on the course. I've played courses in the Valley where the course layout takes advantage of the mountains surrounding the course. Unfortunately, this course just runs through the valleys. That being said, it's a solid layout. There's really nothing that wows you about the course. I live a long way from the course, so I doubt I'll play here often. And that's okay.

The starter was great, but we never saw a ranger and the day we played, a ranger would have been helpful. Someone ahead of us was slow and needed someone to light a fire under them.

A must play

Sidewinder is a wonderful golf course to play with excellent scenery and great conditions (tee boxes, fairways, greens in perfect shape). Friendly staff will take care of all your needs. You can't go wrong playing this baby.

Challenging and fun

Lots of gullies and washes in this very well maintained, professional golf course. Our group has played here every Fri for over 10 years. Worth a try!
