A golf course that has a great view is great. One that has an excellent playability is even greater. But if a golf course offers the best views of Nature and offers an unequaled quality of game – the kind that combines fun and challenge altogether – then it must be the best. This is what the Desert Canyon Golf Club in Arizona is. And for the last 30 years, it has been proving itself as the best choice for golf vacations in Fountain Hills. AZ.
The Desert Canyon Golf Club is known for its majestic views of the Red Mountain, the Four Peaks, the Sonoran desert, and the canyons and mountains of Fountain Hills. The view doesn’t end there. Being at the Desert Canyon affords its guests a view of the highest fountain in the world – the 550-feet fountain in the middle of the desert, northeast of Phoenix. The 18-hole golf vacation destination may be short, playing only at 6,550 yards from the back tees, but it doesn’t come short of challenging. It plays uphill for most of the holes, causing a battle against the desert wind, and has open but tight oak-lined fairways. Golfers also have to try their best shots at the strategically set doglegs and the dramatic elevation changes innate in desert golf courses.
The qualities that make the Desert Canyon Golf Club the best have not remained unrecognized. Apart from its countless golf trip patrons, Golf Digest has awarded it as one of its ‘Best Places to Stay’ and the ‘Best Public Golf Course’ from 2005-2008 by Market Surveys of America. For it to last 30 years without being overshadowed by its younger and larger neighboring courses, it leaves no question that the Desert Canyon is indeed the best.
