I dont play golf but I love to go to the Sunday buffet and sit on the porch with my friends and enjoy the view and the soft breeze. The food is great.

We vacation in an RV twice a year near Fountain Hills. This is our favorite golf course. Reasonable price. Lovely landscaping and views. Fun holes. Easy bag drop off. Great sitting on the outside deck with drinks afterwards. I recommend the bloody Mary's and double chicken wings!

I hit this one up in my quest to play all the AZ courses. Overall nice course I would play again. The bag drop was convenient as well as parking. The club house was ok and restrooms were fine. The bartender made me a spicy Bloodmary that was awesome. I went back outside and there was no starter around but... More

I live in Fountain Hills. Desert Canyon Golf Club is my favorite local course. There are no unreasonable holes on the course. It offers some beautiful views. The price is right. I like the staff as they are friendly and service orientated. My wife took lessons from Jason and she really liked his approach. The course is always in good... More

Enjoyed a round this summer and they offer great service and a challenging course. Prices are very reasonable and the course is well maintained. Great driving range and chipping area available free of charge for guests. Great views and plenty of elevation changes throughout the course.

The golf is great here with outstanding views and nice greens. The staff is friendly and helpful and the price is reasonable. The food at the clubhouse is tasty; sitting on the patio is extremely relaxing for the view is spectacular! Would highly recommend you give it a try!

So I golf here often as it's within a mile of my house. I've played hundreds of courses in hundreds of locations. This course is challenging, but fair. It is always in great shape and you can't beat the price compared with others in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Carts have all been recently upgraded to include GPS yardage and scoring. Lots... More

While dining at Desert Canyon's outside terrace, the Sonoran Desert with mountains as the backdrop and the fountain that showed itself every hour on the hour made for a wonderful gathering location for our Arizona natives and their friends from the New England area. We were not disappointed in our tasty hamburger choices with side salads and soup. A beautiful... More

We played this course in January as part of a golf package. For the price (around $65), it was decent value. The course has varied terrain which was nice. There are two holes on the other side of the road (6&7) that are kind of strange. Almost like they only had room on the property for 16 holes so they... More
